November 10, 2016

I'm not a political person, I will never claim to be. I used to be proud of the fact I never read the news. I'm not much better now but at least I read through the trending news topics on Twitter and Facebook. Yes I know, not the most reliable sources of current events. But the recent election results have turned the whole world upside down. How are we expected to keep going if everything wrong that could go wrong is happening?
I woke up this morning and spent two hours crying because of all the reports of people getting their Hajib ripped off then robbed, women getting assaulted/touched, people promoting segregation to happen again, and hate speech written on walls and bathroom stalls.
I choose at this time to wipe away my tears, turn off social media, and attempt to bring positivity into the world instead of crying in my bed about the fallen world. I hope others will join me.

Let's Be Better

This is another shower thoughts

Sometimes I think about the person I'll end up with and wonder how long before they realize that they could do better.

Because, real talk, think about who you are right now and ask whether you are the best possible self you can be. Could you be spreading more positivity? Thinking less negatively? We're all secretly (or not so secretly) racist and sexists. And we all spend too much time thinking about ourselves instead of the greater good.

I know I'm not going to change any time soon and no single speech or heart-to-heart talk will be able to make an immediate change but really...we could all be better.

More to add later?
