BEAUTIFUL DISTRACTIONS DURING DIFFICULT TIMES
Well, hi there. How are you doing on this fine Tuesday morning? To be honest, it was really a challenge for me to blog yesterday with the very sad news about the shootings in Connecticut a few days ago. It's been so difficult to process that such a horrific event took place ... an event that involved small innocent children. I think that, not only are we grieving in the U.S., but so many of our friends around the world are grieving along with us. Heartwrenching news like this has a way of bringing us all together, doesn't it?
When my heart feels heavy I have several ways of coping. I cry, I vent my feelings out loud, I pray, and I look for beauty in the world. One avenue of beauty and a great distraction when thoughts and emotions are overwhelming is to get on Pinterest. From beautifully photographed nature photos, to luscious recipes, beautiful holiday images, and gorgeous fashion photos, it's a haven for me and reminds me of all the beauty still left in our world.
QUESTION: How do you cope when something painful happens in your life?
This morning I spent about a half hour pinning new fashion images to my "Fun with Fashion" board. I hope you can find a little comfort and peace by browsing through my Pinterest boards and maybe even create an account for yourself ... if you don't already have one. ;)
Thanks for taking the time in your busy day to stop by, sweet friends. xo
