So it’s been a bad week. Like really bad. Bad for all of us. Maybe the worst time we have shared as a country in my lifetime, maybe my mom and dad’s too.
It’s strange, I’ve been thinking about all the terrible things that have happened in my short life and it makes me scared and sad and angry, just like this.
We’ve gotten through those things, so I guess we’ll get through this as well. But I’m an uncertain mess right now. I’d really like if someone could just wake me when it’s April, but since that’s not possible, I want to use this as a positive space like I always have.
I don’t want to spend a bunch of time ruminating over things I can’t change or control, trust me, I’m already doing enough of that.
Instead, I will keep sharing amazing baked goods because stress baking is the best, and fun fashion because even if I have nowhere to go, maybe I’ll get dressed up anyway. And this too shall pass.
Plus, it’s St. Patrick’s Day next week, so while there might not be any parades and you might be too scared to go out and drink a green beer, there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, legend has it.
I’ve never found one, and I don’t think I will, but I do have these rainbow shoes. They were a birthday gift from my aunt (haaaaiiiii, Debbie!) and I wore them for the first time last weekend because I needed to be my very own rainbow.
How are you going to be your own rainbow during these dark times?
