Mon thoughts

Last week, black churchgoers were gunned down by a young white man. There is no sugar coating this. This was a hate crime. He didn’t shoot them because their religion offended him. He didn’t shoot them because he was crazy. He shot them because he was white and they were black. Amazingly, the families of the people who died in this hate crime are choosing to forgive him. They are willing to forgive someone who shot their loved ones after they had warmly received and welcomed him to their place of worship. I think that they, collectively, deserve the Nobel Peace Prize.

Moving past from this tragedy, I know that I’ve raved about Serena Williams before but one would think that her life is perfect, right? I mean, Grand Slam titles.And she’s smart to boot. Well turns out she has insecurities like the rest of us. And she had to work hard to overcome them. But have you seen her body. I can’t believe she would have body issues. But she did. Which kind of makes me feel better about myself.

And for those of you in a relationship….here are the 50 things all of us apparently deserve when we are in one. Are you getting any?

And you know what? Sometimes we all need to remember that if we aren’t satisfied with what we have now, we’ll never be satisfied. And we have to be happy with where we are and what we have now.
