As I reflect on the week gone by I am in total shock.
Shocked at the events that have happened and are happening in the world.
What's going on? I ask myself.
In a world where I one day want children of my own I'm scared at the world that they'll be brought into at the moment. I want a world where people, no matter of skin colour, religion, sexual orientation, age etc can join hands and be united. That's the world I want my children to come into.
But will that ever be the case?
One of my inspirations in life is Dr Martin Luther King and he once said
'Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter'
We all have voices. We all have opinions. And together I believe we can unite and fight for positive change.
Martin Luther King did. (Or at least he started off something that transcended the civil rights movement) He gave people hope.
He wasnt silent about things that mattered to him and I believe each and everyone of us shouldn't be either.
When I saw the news of the Orlando shootings for example I froze in disbelief at what I was seeing on the TV. I was eating breakfast with a loved one who said that they couldn't do anything about it as they couldn't change the world. This brought on the inspiration for this weeks Feel Good!
We all CAN make a difference, we all CAN make a change and no it may not be doing it on a global scale but in a world becoming increasingly horrific we need positivity and we need hope that each and everyone of you glorious people can strive to be great and do great things.
Use your voices and use your actions to do something worth doing. Martin Luther King never knew he was going to change the world or the lives of the people he was campaigning for but he did it anyway as it was what he believed in.
He had a dream and I'm sure each and every one of you have dreams too.
Aim for those dreams and make the world a better place. Life is short (too short at times) so be bold, speak up and chase those dreams which will make you happy
Until next week
Much love :)
P.S I know I always tend to use a quote in memory of a recently passed celebrity but if you're reading this could you have a moment to reflect on those killed in Orlando or the MP killed yesterday.
