Hey guys. I was all excited to post today since I finally finished the trip recap and posted a new food idea but today I just have such a heavy heart. The news of Alton Sterling and then Philando Castile, the current political outlook of this year’s election and our candidates, mass shootings, gun control conversations, I just can’t deal at the moment. This is why I stopped watching the news years ago. Now, however, social media, my outlet and connection to the world is flooded with hate, anger, and outrage.
As it should be.
I feel helpless.
I need to disconnect for my own sanity yet I find myself compelled to keep reading. Then the phone rings and I find out my mom fell and may have a concussion.
I’m not sure whey I’m sharing all this besides the fact that I’ve learned writing helps me get out of my head and I’m having a hard time doing that at the moment.
On the bright side… I no longer eat my feelings like I used to.
Ok, not much of a bright side, but I’m trying. Every time I try to think positive I just get more depressed. It’s not good. I thing I need to disconnect and just be for a few days.
