Looking around, every day, we are bombarded with so much bad news.
You know when you try to be happy all the time? I can do that..I do it pretty well I think, but the current state of affairs have got me thinking so much to the point where I’m sad now.
I watch the news every day hoping that maybe today we’ll get some good news, but murder, kidnapping, war, politics and a general disregard of emotion and thought seems to be the order of recent years.
I’m tired of hearing bad news.
A friend of mine has written a book that is in its editing stages and has given me a copy to read.
My friend gave me the copy of her book to read in the summer when I wasn’t doing anything. I didn’t forget about it, but at the same time, I didn’t immediately start reading.
As I’ve stated before, I have amazing people in my life, and I have some of the most amazing friends in the world. I don’t have a lot of friends..but the ones I have are enough.
Back to the book.
This friend is a very deep and knowledgeable woman.
If I need to talk about anything, she’s the one I would go to for advice or encouragement. She’s the one that tells me what I don’t want to hear.
I started reading the book after I came back up to University and it made me think. It made me think about how I view myself and my self-esteem.
After realising certain things about myself when I went away to Portugal, I began to try to change these things to make myself a better me.
I’ve had to stop reading, only because I need to think about and attempt to implement some of what I have read and am learning from what she is saying.
This book speaks volumes and I know that when it gets published it will touch lives and help so many people.
Good things do exist..even if we don’t hear about them on the news.
There are so many men and women out there, like my friend; who just want to help and support other people wholeheartedly.
I appreciate all of them.
*I cannot go into details about the book, because it has not been published, so I tried to be as vague as possible. Hopefully you guys get the spirit of what this post has been trying to say..*
