It’s been an emotional week for so many and even though I’m a Brit, I could empathise with the uncertainty that a number of my American friends felt, regardless of who they voted for, particularly in the fact that the whole Brexit fiasco is still nowhere near to being resolved here. It’s the start of a new era, and even though that things aren’t going in the direction that I would have necessarily chosen, it’s clear that there are changes ahead. I’ve seen many inspiring and motivational messages over the last few days and, above all, I hope that unity and tolerance prevails. There’s only one direction in which we can travel – forwards – and I hope that we all, both over here and in America can do it together.
And of course, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, I paid my respects to those lost in conflict. Lest we forget. It is because of these brave souls that we have the freedom of democracy.
My week has been reasonably quiet. I’ve published my first ever online course, making sales in the process, I’ve been attempting to reorganise the chaos that was my household (despite undertaking a massive cleanup only a few weeks ago) and I’ve made some steps towards the further development of the blog. And yet, despite feeling like I’ve been busy every day, I don’t appear to have achieved anywhere near my initial expectations at the beginning of the week. That’s the problem with being in the blogging and social media world – a huge amount of work can sometimes initially feel like a waste of time. I’ve got a weeks worth of posts crafted, however, and I have exciting new plans for a Facebook group, which I’m looking forward to sharing with you all.
I’m away this weekend too – I’m going down south to meet up with some of my favourite bloggy people, which looks set to be a lot of fun!
