Hurry up

As we get into the last days of 2016, I’m just waiting for it to hurry up and be over with. Not that I think that 2017 will definitely be better mind, I’m just thinking that we could all do with a break from everything that’s gone on this year.

Whatever does happen though, I am determined to handle it a lot better than I did this year. Unliking all those news pages I had on Facebook was a good start. Next I’m going to unfollow and/or block/mute all the news pages and general accounts that seem to be spouting nothing but negativity. I’m done with feeling hopeless and angry about everything I read and hear. I know, it would probably be better to just get off the internet, if only it was easy to do that.

I guess I just want to feel a bit of hope from somewhere and I definitely want to feel a bit more positive about my life and stuff. I’m sure we all want to go into the new year feeling that.

 

A Reminder

Today you may have woken up to the news you weren’t expecting.

Today you might well be thinking that the world isn’t as great as it was yesterday.

You might well be wishing that you could erase what has happened today from your memory. Indeed, you might want to erase the entire year so far from your memory.

And you’re probably feeling like….well….shit.

But no matter how awful things seem, and how you’re wishing that you were no longer living on this planet, it’s important to remember that there is still good in the world, that there is a glimmer of hope in even the deepest darkness and there are still things that are worth fighting for.

The awfulness will only win if we let it get to us.

Be excellent to each other.
