I’ve been a bad blogger this week. Sometimes, I can’t find enough time for all the posts I have drafted in my head. Other times, I can’t think of a thing to write about. This week has fallen into the latter category!
The truth is that I usually write about pretty light and fluffy stuff on here, and it’s hard to keep it light and fluffy when I am feeling sad about the world. As much as I always try to focus on the positive, there’s no denying that there’s also a lot of negative going on around us. Saturday’s tragedy in Tucson is just so, so heartbreaking, and it left me feeling very disappointed in our world. I know there are much worse things happening in other countries every day and I am extremely fortunate to live the life I live, but sometimes that makes me feel even more sad for the things I can’t fix.
I don’t watch the news too often because it just gets to be depressing and I take so much of it to heart, but I don’t like feeling naive about what’s really going on in the world, either. It’s hard to find a balance of feeling informed while not completely losing faith in humanity in the process.
So. That’s what I’ve been feeling this week. How do you all follow current events and learn from them without letting it get you down?
