This Week....

Share It:

This week has been shit. Unless of course you're on the other team, then it's been fantastic. And there's the problem with our country. We are so divided it's scary.

The question now is where do we who've had a shit week go? I'm not sure at this point. I don't ever claim to be super intelligent about politics, I'm not that girl who's going to have a down and dirty debate with you about Republican vs. Democrat policy. I just know what my core being believes and I follow my heart with that.

I know that for me.... racism, homophobia, xenophobia, sexism, Islamaphobia and misogyny are wrong and something that I can never, ever support. Our President-elect has fostered all of these things over the last 12 months and because of that, I'm truly scared for our country and where it is headed.

So that leaves us kinda stuck for the moment, at least that's how I feel. Stuck. Numb. Angry. Sad.....

I don't pretend to think a lot of people flock to this blog, so I'm kinda just writing for myself here. Trying to figure it all out and....and....I dunno.

What I do know right now is that I need to practice self-care for the foreseeable future. I'm creating and photographing the beauty that is around me. I'm listening to music more, buying flowers for the house and eating well. But, I'm also not taking any shit and standing up for what I believe. I'll never apologize for being against those traits above and I will push you to understand that by supporting the candidate our country elected, you are doing just that. Sorry if you don't want to hear that....I don't want to type it. Yet, this election has unearthed a long simmering, festering truth about much of the United States. We are damaged and broken and somehow we need to rise above all of this and find a way to be better human beings.

And it starts with you....
