Don't have the blues

Happy New Year we're only a week into 2021 and the chaos continues. I can sit here and talk about how my heart is heavy and I barely have words for the kind of healing our country needs as I watched the news all day yesterday, but I always strive to inspire and be the light to my loved ones and friends. I consider you a friend if you're taking the time to read this, so thank you. I'm thinking of you. YOU matter, I care about you deeply and I will do all I could to unlearn, learn, grow, put the work in for change and stand by every single person because no one should ever feel devalued as a human being. I am for all people! I will never know what it's like to walk in anyone else's shoes but I can only imagine the pain caused by this presidency. Because I too have felt the pain. I've had hard conversations and tried to convince family members not to vote for another 4 years of the cheeto but all that did was cause more pain. I'm embarrassed to even admit that I have never voted until this election. I thought I didn't matter, I thought my voice and my presence wouldn't make a difference but I know that is wrong now. I did my part with voting in 2020 like my life depended on it because in reality it does and so many people don't have the luxury to say "I don't get into politics or it doesn't matter who wins etc." because I hear this all the time from family members. All of our lives and future lives depend on it. If you've learned anything from the disgusting behavior of Jan 6, 2021 I hope you learn that words matter, YOU matter and what people in charge of a nation say, matter. No one should ever be so obsessed with a president that they hang on every word, try to take over and incite violence for them. I wish I could say that I was shocked but when I found out about yesterday I wasn't at all shocked, this behavior has been going on for 4-5 years so if yesterday shocked you, I would suggest to do more research. This is me just getting how I feel out, you don't have to agree with me but this was important for me to say on MY platform.

I journaled this morning about change, healing, peace and what I can do to help others. Not gonna lie it brought me to tears. I'm still trying to find the words, I'm still trying to do better and be better. So what always helps me after journaling my feelings, are quotes that I find off of pinterest. I know it's not going to heal or change anything that anyone is going through but if it can bring a small second of bliss by sharing then that's all I want. I know a lot of us have the blues right now, the world is heavy, a global pandemic is still upon us, people are dying,my heart is heavy for all of the families that lost someone due to COVID. A new presidency is upon us, and eventually we'll be looking back on these years as years of growth, change, overcoming, pain, mourning, getting to know ourselves, unlearning, and most of all healing. Stay safe out there and if you ever need someone to talk to you can always email me at dancingwithflyingcolors@gmail.com or DM me on instagram. 

I AM HERE FOR YOU!
