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..
