So much easier said than done. This blog post is dedicated to reflection. 2017 has been a crazy year. It’s hard to believe all the crazy and amazing things that have happened in my life. But what’s even crazier is what’s happening in the world. Normally, I don’t like to bring politics or negativity to my blog space, but something has got to give. While my immediate world is pretty cool, I’d say the world outside my little bubble seems to be going up in flames.
Today a horrific mass shooting happened at a concert in Las Vegas and the idea of this blows my mind. I can’t begin to fathom the horror that these people experienced. I don’t even want to think about the political turmoil that this will cause. I send my condolence to all those affected by this horrible crime. I wish that everyone will take this time to reflect on their own lives. Don’t take for granted the beautiful people you have in your life. If you have a grudge or feel that someone you love has a grudge against you, be the bigger person and reach out.
I’m finding that as I mature and live life on my terms, I’m noticing that I have to be the bigger person. It sucks sometimes because I don’t always want to be the one to have to reach out. I want that person to care enough about me to want to reach out first. That’s how I feel with a lot of relationships in my life lately. But at the end of the day, I’m willing to do that for the relationships that do matter to me.
I trust that god has bigger plans for me, my family, my friends, and this world. I refuse to let tragic events weaken my faith in god’s plan. Maybe it’s time we all open up. Let’s drop our masks, and be vulnerable. Be real. Stop pretending you don’t crave that connection. This post is more of a vent. My attempts to seek clarity, and restore faith. Faith in my friends, my direction in life, and faith in humanity.
May the remainder of the week be blessed beyond measure!
