Yesterday was a hard day. An attack in / on Nice in France. The announcement that an amber alert was cancelled because they discovered the body of a missing 5 year old girl. I packed it in and called it a night early. Devastated by the sadness and the despair and the tears. Finding the balance of being aware of what is happening in the world around you; and fighting your own battles and overcoming darkness within your own circle. Learning when to shut off the radio/TV/twitter feed and celebrate the successes and goodness in your own life without turning a blind eye to the struggles of others. It is hard. It has become seemingly harder as I have become older.
I found a new app last night Prismaapp It helped distract me last night. I can see myself spending alot of time running my photos through the filters....so watch out.
It is also World Emoji Day today. That too is a fun distraction.
And it is Friday. Pizza night. Date night. And generally Friday is a good selling day for the paper.
My side project - my own company has announced we are opening in Australia. This is very exciting.
Also I am reading about the You Economy - interesting stuff here.
I am committed to the fight. The sun will shine again. I will continue to move forward and take the time to love and appreciate my family and friends and celebrate the good in the world.
