Be metal before you become mental.
Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity of others…H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We live in a world where negativity permeates much of our lives and culture. From social media to traditional media we are bombarded with bad news. I think this wears on us and brings us down. Here in Chattanooga reaction to the shootings of Thursday has been very mixed. People have gone on Facebook and Twitter to share anguish and at times very venomous statements against Muslims, The President and the situation as a whole. The whole thing is very sad and has impacted people emotionally and mentally.
I am kind of sad about the whole thing. Anger won’t bring back the dead. But love can stop future situations. Paying attention to those who are in need could save more lives than you think. When a person is in need offer them help. Flip the whole situation around to give people hope.
My blog is a positive place I hope. I will share what I am feeling and sometimes it will not be all cheery and happy. However I want people to know how committed I am personally and as a blogger to giving us some hope, grace and love.
Be positive, it looks good on you.
