Hi folks. I am completely aware that I have been a bit awol of recent and not been consistent with posts but if I’m being honest, life has completely got on top of me and been directly in the way. It’s not easy this Mothering lark what with it being half term and I’ve started a course (and had homework *gasp*) time has just run away from me.
Also the events in the last few weeks here in Britain have had a hold on me to tell the truth. I’ve been preoccupied with spending as much time as humanly possible with my little family and reflecting on how incredibly blessed I am. I think it’s fair to say that anyone with a shred, an ounce of humanity in them can say that these acts are barbaric and unforgivable. I have been anxious, sleepless and just sad about the whole situation. I have however been overwhelmed by the power of love in our country, our little island and our people have come together to show that we truly are GREAT Britain. The people have come together, taken a stand together and it’s been an incredible thing to watch. Everybody…. all races, all backgrounds, all classes! We are all together and it’s been so moving and comforting.
Is this world really that bad a place? Sometimes I think so, but the brave acts of our emergency services and general members of the public during these horrific events have shown me that there is some good in this world. Lots of it. Even when it’s hard I’ve been trying to remember this. Yes there are some evil people, some unfair judgements and some shameful behaviours but overall we are good people. These ‘people’ (and i use that term loosely) dont want us to love, they dont want us to care for eachother, they dont understand our way of life. They choose to behave the way they do because THEY are racist. Racist against humanity, against the human race but there are far more good people in this world than bad and as corny as it sounds good will conquer evil. I truly believe that.
So that’s where I’ve been, I’ve been using this time to write more about life. My life and the things I want, do things for my family and spend as much time loving as i can because I’ve learned these last few weeks you just cannot take anything for granted. This post isn’t about dwelling it’s about moving forward, these tragedies have taught me that as long as good people keep doing good things we will win this ‘fight’ against this evil force that is trying to change the future for everyone. Things have to change if there is any hope for our children. So I am going to start here in my house, am I going try each and every day to spread the love and teach my children that there is good left in this world even when it seems dark, and that it’s worth fighting for. Kill them with kindness.
