The world is so full of tragedies lately and it truly breaks my heart.
This week has brought me personal struggles, which in hindsight are completely irrelevant to what is truly important in this life. My house is a mess. Half of our upper floor is in the process of being painted. I have an exam on Tuesday that I am nowhere near ready for. I haven't done laundry in what seems like a year. I don't have a bathing suit that fits.
And then you hear about the death, violence, and fear that strikes the world every single day, and all of my insignificant "struggles" are completely washed away.
We all need to focus on love. We all need it, no matter how small or large our problems are. We all need to give love in every single way that we can. We all need to be kind to the people who need it most - the people who have so much hate in their hearts that they commit treacherous crimes that will stay with the world long after they've been committed. That's who we need to love. That's who needs our kindness most. We need to raise loving babies, kind babies, courageous babies, to grow up and to bring this world peace.
If there is one thing that I wish for my girls to know deep down in their core is that love conquers all. Love can and will save lives - if we are taught that it can.
If we could spread love as fast as tragic headlines in the news, this world would be a completely different place. So spread love. Tell someone that they are beautiful, that their soul is beautiful and that they deserve happiness. We all deserve happiness.
Take good care, lovelies.
