Beauty Among The Chaos
I feel as if the world is constantly dealing with turmoil, and during the past few months, that seems more apparent than ever. I’ve been thinking a lot about all of these issues, shootings, lost lives, political scandals, gossip, threats, etcetera, and I have formed a stance or opinion about almost all of them, however, I am not going to talk about it. Now, please understand, by not voicing my options at this very moment, on this particular platform, I am by no means trying to be oblivious or ignorant about the fact that bad shit is happening, because it’s so deeply saddening to me, as I’m sure it is for most of you as well.
But that’s why I’m here, your token reckless optimist, to remind you of something important- Even when horrific things are happening, actually, ESPECIALLY when horrific things are happening, we must seek out things that we love, and things that make us happy, because if we don’t remind ourselves of the beauty among the chaos, we will surely lose our will to carry on.
I could tell you about all of the amazing things in my life, or I could SHOW you. The mostly photo format of this article is in honor of my dear friend Sydney, who recently started a blog of her own. As a worn out writer, Sydney has created a wordless blog, where she tells stories in pictures, and if you love photography like I do, you definitely need to check it out.
You know what they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and I hope that from these photos that I am sharing with you, all thousand of those words are synonyms for happiness.
Looks like the world is not all that bad, after all.
