It’s 11 p.m. and I have not yet posted anything today. I have a hard time returning to ‘business as usual’ and (as previously noted), I am unprepared for NaBloPoMo this year and I have no ready-to-go posts sitting in my draft folder that I can just throw up and be done with it.
Words are failing me right now. There is nothing I want to say except for how my heart still physically hurts and how my appetite has been shot since Tuesday night.
So, I am trying to think of a couple of things that I can still love on this gloomy Thursday.
I am loving…
… that I am surrounded (online and offline) by people who share my world view and my beliefs, who are just as devastated as me, who share in my pain and help me process my feelings. It feels good to not be alone in this.
… that people are not willing to stand for promoting hate and discrimination. Just because this man won the election doesn’t mean we have to silently sit on the sideline while he goes about reversing all the progress this country made in the last few years. I am not dismissing that people were hurting and had legitimate concerns, but we’re not accepting the legitimization of racism, sexism, bigotry and hate.
… my state for this. Yes, I live in a blue state and I am proud of it.
… that people pledge to resist Trump. Pledge to resist his agenda of hate and stand up for the people he targets (and you can too).
… a hot cup of tea. It always helps, doesn’t it?
… Friends re-runs on Nick@nite. It’s good to laugh a little and Friends (pun intended) always make me feel better.
… that today is the beginning of the weekend. I need it.
Please, share some things that you love today in the comments.
