It has been difficult to get motivated lately, these past few days have been trying, to say the least. There is so much hate in this country right now and I can’t help but feel a bit frustrated and hopeless. I don’t mean to be negative, but it’s difficult to stay calm and sane when every 15 minutes someone is posting an obnoxious status maintaining and feeding into the division of this country. While we are all trying to make sense what is going on, I ask that you bare in mind something we constantly quoted after 9/11: united we stand, divided we fall. We are stronger when we stick together as one nation. If nothing else, think of the children in this country who don’t have a voice yet. We are fighting for them. So get up, dust yourself off and show them just how great America is and always has been. Show them that love wins every single time and that you can do anything with a little bit of faith and a lot of hard work. As for keeping yourself sane and calm, enjoy the little things in life: hugs from your family, sharing laughs with your besties and even cuddling up in a cozy sweater on a fall day. Keep telling yourself: we are stronger together and warmer with sweaters. See! I know that made you giggle–just a little bit.
And FYI, this marled batwing sweater from DressLily has been my saving grace these past few days. Its wide sleeves actually enable you to cuddle with yourself–literally. Keep it classy, America, we have some work ahead of us.
