I have been avoiding the news for the last few days.
I just cannot take the horror anymore.
Terrorism, diseases, murder, and so much more.
It’s not as if i don’t know its happening of course I do.
I guess i just want to hide away a little.
I watched an episode of Criminal minds the other evening and the investigators were talking about their desire to watch cute videos of little kittens, cute puppies and baby hippos.
Their need to switch the horrific images their jobs brings with cute innocent ones.
I get that.
Not that my job is anything as graphic.
I just understand the need to believe in cute fluffy unicorns for a while.
I personally don’t subscribe to the sweet animal images.
I prefer messages and videos of hope.
Thats why this week I have been watching videos like this…
Viewing images like these…
Reading about amazing teenagers like this.
And wrapping myself up in the good in the world.
Your attitude is like a box of crayons that colour your world. Constantly colour your picture grey, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colours to the picture by including humour, and your picture begins to lighten up.
So this week I am not actually taking time from the world.
I’m just choosing to paint my life with bright beautiful colours.
