Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate blog hop

This is my weekly blog post for Celebrate the Small Things.

I have to be honest, with recent events, I’m finding it hard to celebrate. I’m not sure why but the attack on Nice is especially unsettling to me. I can’t even fathom it.

So, I want to pause for just a second and pray for the people of Nice, France.

This week I’m celebrating keeping up with my CampNaNoWriMo goal, doing some late spring (summer I guess) cleaning, catching quite a few Pokemon AND getting most of my cardio outdoors this week. Also I’ve been reading a lot of books this summer, well, reading and listening.

You know, I think what really bugs me is – these people were trying to have fun, to celebrate – and maybe that’s why now more than ever, we need to have fun, to celebrate. One of the best things we can do today and always. Celebrate being alive, being free.

Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité

  1. The attack on Nice bothers me too. It’s a new kind of war where the combatants come out of nowhere and there are no enemy capital cities and military bases to attack in response. How do we deal with this without becoming wicked ourselves. Prayer is called for, I would think.
    But there are some small things we can all celebrate. I am behind on my Camp NaNoWriMo, but then I’ve realized that establishing firm habits of daily poetry writing and daily blogging and blog-commenting are a higher priority than my Camp NaNo project (which I still hope to work on today.)

    • Nissa thx for sharing this. I agree completely that is part of it. I know the vast majority of Muslims are good people many of them suffering even more so in wartorn areas. Good luck with nanowrimo. Also I love cats too! I have two of them from an abandoned litter that somehow wound up in my yard. Peace.

  2. That is a terrible story. There’s been too many of these tragedies lately. Be careful with that Pokemon game. I just heard on the radio about a fellow that drove into a tree because he got distracted by a special or rare Pokemon on his screen. Luckily he is okay and no one else was in the car.

  3. I think it’s important to feel sympathy for all the deaths we’ve heard about recently and do what we can to help. But we also have to take care of ourselves and remember how healthy it is to laugh and enjoy things. Enjoy your Pokemon!

  4. It is horrible, and I’m afraid it’s just the start of this type of thing. It’s important to feel for the victims and realize what’s going on and the terrible side of it. But that also makes it even more important to remember the bright side of life and not let the terrorists win. And as to Pokemon…Lol! Enjoy!
