I don’t want to be all melodramatic but it feels like we’re going so far backwards that I expect to see cavemen hanging out at McDonalds and a T-Rex bellowing next to the Hollywood sign and it’s not CGI or make-believe. It’s scary, frustrating and exhausting. We need to continue to speak up and take action (it’s called nominating good candidates and voting) but we also need to feed our soul with humor, love and kindness. And that’s my plan for today.
Let’s Tickle that Funny Bone
We could cry but let’s laugh instead, okay? Memes to the rescue!
I laughed when I saw this then I thought, “Oh shit.” Because … you know. Be honest – you do it too. Right? Right? Come on. Say you do it too.
Me too. I mean, she warned you, so whatever happens … you’re to blame.
Well played millennials. Well played.
They Say Love Makes the World Go Around
I’d like to think that’s true. Some days, though, it feels like love is in short supply. Let’s see if we can replenish the world’s love supply.
All good writers are taught, “to show, don’t tell” and it’s a good life practice as well.
I love this so much.
Awww … yes. There are good people all around. Look for them. Be one of them.
Girls Run this World
Beyonce was right. I mean, obviously. 😀 Jokes aside, I know it would be easier to pretend this is normal to keep our sanity, but we can’t because it’s not normal. It’s dangerous; it’s wrong; it must not continue. I will not be complicit and hope you won’t be either. So let’s summon up all our girl power and roar.
Let’s grab our swords and head into battle, with both fury and hope.
We are more powerful than they realize.
Yes, we are beautiful, raging storms. Evoke our ire at your own risk world.
The Brightest Days Come after the Darkest Nights
It feels pitch black some days but light it coming because we are that light. Shine bright, my friends. Shine bright.
What do you do to stay sane in these dark times?
