Good morning beautifuls.
As each day goes by I become more impatient for the next! I fly out to Australia in less than six weeks now. I am brimming with excitement and as you can see by my lack of posts (so sorry about that) I am swamped with work, packing and preparing for the adventures ahead.
I went to interview an amazing musician the other day which was brilliant. We discussed her musical endeavours and her inspirations. It is truly a blessing to be surrounded by such creative and wonderful people. It did get me reflecting.
This world is full of such hatred and ugliness. Black Lives Matter, Donald Trump, the Refugee Crisis, Oscar Pistorius, the Isis Bombings, The EU referendum, Syria, Chilcott's report, racism, Donald Trump, Global warming, Iraq, The Dallas Shootings, xenophobia, the possible privatisation of the NHS, the Korean Missile, Tony Blair, Afganistan, the Orlando Massacre.. the list really does go on. It's times like these that it's truly difficult to find the silver lining, but I am fighting hard to keep my eyes towards the stars and my mind beyond the horizon.
We live in a world where Portugal ran four days straight on renewable energy, where churches and synagogues alike in the US are opening their doors to refugees, where the international cooperation to slow global warming has seen success as Antarctica's ozone hole begins to heal, where people come together across the globe in their millions to support one another, whether it be Gay Pride and standing up for love after the Orlando Massacre, or twitter hashtags to promote and show that #BlackLivesMatter.
We live in a world with individuals like Malala Yousafzai and Akon alike are fighting for a brighter future, where celebrities such as Leonardo Dicaprio and Angelina Jolie use their fame to promote the awareness of those in need. In times like this I remember that there are thousands of people, more than ever before, travelling across the world to volunteer; lend their time and help create a brighter future, where people fight for justice, whether it be through protest, the arts, petitions or online media platforms.
There is a lot of ugly in the world. There is also a lot of beauty. Those who want to see a change should remember the power they have to show the world 'I am Here'.
Write a song, take a photo. Smile, compliment, laugh, travel often and show others how much love you hold in your heart. Let it spill out and let it flood into their lives.
We can make changes. We are beautiful, and that is a gift that should not be taken for granted.
