Don't lose faith
I had a few blogposts planned for this week but after the sad events in Paris and around the world, I felt I had to put something about that here. It wouldn't feel right if I didn't.
The terrorist attacks that the world saw this weekend, and happen far more frequently than they should/we realise around the world, break my heart. It's hateful that humans want to destroy each other, simply for sport and to gain attention for their causes.
However, I am trying not to let the awfulness of a few humans, discolour my view of humanity in general. There is so much good in the world. Good that we often take advantage of. From little things like a bright smile or somebody letting you into a building first when it's raining; to the wonderful people who gave Parisians shelter so they weren't wondering the streets on that dreadful night. From someone saying thank you when you help them out; to the police/firefighters/doctors who save people's lives every day.
Don't harden your heart against your fellow man, and don't wish revenge. Just remember the love. It often takes the worst circumstances to bring out the best in people. But you saw both this weekend. Keep concentrating on the positive and try to ignore the hate.
