Finding Strength During Frightening Times

Since last Friday when the terrorist attacks took place in France, I attempted to post on social media sites a few times and found it difficult.  Somehow I felt that my posts regarding health, food, inspiration, etc. were trivial and meaningless and possibly even posting anything was a disregard for the crisis our world is in.  Each time I sat down to write, I backspaced it away.  Then I began to think about it and realized that this is something these evil people may actually revel in -- the numbness, the silence, the shock and the disgust.  

How does such evil permeate some human beings -- dare I say "human?"  No, I do not think of these terrorists as human at all. They were born into a human existence and then through something beyond my realm of thinking, turned into feelingless, murderous, unconscious souls.  I will never understand the why's and how's of such horrific events, but I do understand that now more than ever, I need to remind myself that I will act out of love and not hate.  I will look deep inside and know that I am a divine being who is here for a reason.  I need to look around me at the love I am surrounded by on a daily basis.. my husband, my daughters, step-daughters, son-in-laws, grandchildren and friends.  

So, I will continue to post healthy tips, inspirational quotes and pics of food because it makes me happy and hopefully puts a smile on the faces of my friends and family who read them.  We all need to SMILE and stay positive because there's a lot of love in the world.  Love always wins out in the end..
