This definitely wasn’t the blog post that I was expecting to put up today. This week’s What I Wore Wednesday will appear tomorrow, I think. However, on a day where the future of the world changes completely, I couldn’t help but think that a little ramble about change was somewhat appropriate.
I’m typing this as I watch the 45th President of the U.S.A. is being sworn in. I shan’t get into my political views here, but I can’t seem to get rid of this horrendous pit of despair in my stomach. I felt more affected by America’s election, than I did by Brexit because I live here, because I’m going to be here for the foreseeable future. Anyway, I saw something on a Snapchat story the other day about how change isn’t necessarily bad; how we should try to view the positives and go in with an open mind. After seeing this story, all I could think about were my feelings towards this presidential election. I was (and still am) gutted with the result. How am I meant to view the positives in something that I don’t agree with on any level at all? I’m desperately trying to go in with an open mind. With the mindset that this all might turn out ok. But this pit of despair just will not leave. I’m not entirely sure where this post is going, whether or not it’s making any sense to anyone. I don’t want to cause any arguments. I’m not saying that either view or party is correct, but I’m just struggling with this whole thing. Here’s hoping that this change turns out better than many think it will. Here’s hoping that many are pleasantly surprised.
