Where is the love?

butterfly eveningThis post has very little to do with MS and more to do with the big picture of life. Of course MS is part of my daily life, but there is so much more than that going on around me. I am that person that tries avoiding watching the news, because there is never really anything positive being said. So I think, why allow the negative to invade the life I am trying to make positive? 

It really makes me so sad to see all the hate in the world today. There are way too many what appear to be random shootings, killing innocent people and destroying lives. I have family that lives in NYC, so the most recent event really scared me. Thankfully my family was not harmed, but there were 8 lives taken too soon and 11 injured during this tragedy, leaving the families to pick up the shattered pieces and the injured to heal. There are no excuses for the violence!

It is 2017 but the way some act you would think it was 1917. What happened to equality? Where is the love 2Why do some people, does not matter the color of their skin, feel that they are better than another? I feel strongly that everyone deserves to be treated equally and with respect, unless they do something that takes that respect away. When I talk to someone I do not see the color of their skin, their choice of religion or whom they love does not affect the way I see them. To me, everyone is free to love who they love, worship who they choose to worship and just be who they are as long they do not cause me any harm. The song by Black Eye Peas, Where is the LoveWhere is the love, really sums up how I feel. 

My hope is that there will be improvements in the world within my lifetime. I do not remember there being this much adversity when I was younger, but maybe I was just too young and native to see things the way they were. It is possible that as I get older I am seeing people and their actions for what they really are. where is the love

I have made arrangements with my job about how and when I will be returning to work. I am going to go back to work, hopefully on Monday but my hours will be adjusted. I am going to work Monday and Tuesday from 10-3 and Wednesday 10-2 due to an appointment I have. After Wednesday, I am going to access how I am feeling and figure out what I can handle the remainder of the week. My manager completely understands that I have to take things slowly so I do not set my healing back and can work to the best of my ability. 

I hope y’all had a good day and that your evening is going well! I know this post had a few different thoughts so if you have any comments please feel free to leave them and I will respond to you just as quickly as I can. I hope that the beginning of this post did not offend anyone because that was not my intent, I am honestly just a little upset about the way some treat others. I will always pride myself on treating others in a way that I want to be treated which is with respect and compassion! Thank you so much for reading my rant and about my plans! Take Care and stay positive!!

Love 2


Always, Alyssa
