Oh Joy

so i had to say...

Over the weekend, I had a really hard time posting pretty pictures on social media. I couldn't think of anything to say that really meant much of anything. I'm an optimistic person. I am a hopeful person. And I have never felt comfortable discussing politics on social media. It doesn't mean that I don't care or that I am not thinking about it or feeling it or discussing it with people around me. It just means that I usually keep my opinions private because most of the time I am not strong enough to have the conversations with people that I can't look in the face and have a real dialogue with.

If you feel like seeing a little bit about my current feelings, you can see my Instagram story from last night. I needed to vent and speak from my heart for just a few minutes. So if you watched, thank you. I've read every single comment.

No matter what you feel about the state of the country right now, we all have the desire to feel united..to feel like we all belong here. I found that this image above spoke loudly to me with very few words.
