There’s a lot of negativity out there this week folks. There are people shooting at each other, people talking about the worst parts of humanity to score points, other people just being dicks in general.
I think about the every day moments of happiness that I have; my son waking me up in the morning, my dog bringing me a toy, my wife sending me a text. I think about the little moments during the day of helping another person, or happening to get a cookie out of the oven at the local shop, or jamming out to Queen’s, “Don’t Stop Me Know,” which I cannot recommend to people enough.
I have a lot of thoughts from the last couple of weeks, but I don’t want to put more negativity into the world today. I don’t want to add one more trigger into the ether that someone else could stumble upon and end up feeling like I do. We have a long way to go in this country, and in this world. But there is no reason, if we look at the positive, happy moments, in our own lives, that we can’t share that with everyone else.
Speaking of putting out positivity, I want to mention one more thing; my dear friend, collaborator, and occasional-shoulder-to-cry-on, Krisann Gentry, has recently given birth to a new son. Unfortunately, there was a medical emergency with his birth, and he is spending some time in the NICU at a San Diego hospital. Any good thoughts, prayers or help is appreciated. Please contact me if you want more information.
Go hug somebody folks, you don’t know who needs it.
