The news this weekend was difficult. I had a particularly hard time finding my sense of optimism on Saturday, but then I saw this tweet from The Bloggess, a woman who almost never fails to make me smile, and I felt the light in my heart get a bit brighter:
Be kind. Do good. Remember that there are far more good people in the world than bad. They’re just not as obvious as the assholes.

And she’s right. It seems that the jerks are the loudest in the room right now. But I want the change that. So, taking more notes from the fabulous Bloggess, I’m going to make a point today and for as long as I can to be Furiously Happy. To be Deafeningly Loving. To be Overwhelmingly Optimistic.
Because I refuse to let hate win. In fact, I refuse to let it think it even has a fighting chance.
Because just wait until you see what Love can do.
In other news, here is yesterday’s #SundaySupdate video! The video got really laggy at some points and I’m not sure why, but the audio seemed to be doing just fine for the whole thing, so… hopefully all issues will be cleared next week. Enjoy!
