Serenity vs. knowledge

I don't know about you, but this has been a tough week to stay grounded and hang onto the joy! We began the week with news of the absolutely horrific massacre in Orlando. Add to that all the vitriolic comments online. Pump that up by several times with the awful comments by a "Christian pastor" in Arizona, who said he celebrated the killings of people from the LGBTQ community. Top it all off with the nominee of a major political party insinuating that our president is sympathetic to terrorists. It's all a bit too much.

I feel so torn. I want to keep up on world and national news. I also want to stay grounded and keep a positive, hopeful attitude. What's a person to do?! I want to find some balance between staying informed and feeling serene.

I need to take a break from news for half a day or a day. I need some quiet time. Perhaps a walk in the woods. Or a bike ride on a nature trail. Read some inspirational literature. I need to refocus—and reset my compass to true north. A little less knowledge via current events and a little more serenity—coming right up.
