Lately, I’ve been feeling a change in the air and I’m not sure I like it. Summer has always been my favourite time of year – the hotter the better. I’ve always especially loved August as it’s my birthday month so you’ll often find me gearing up for the big day by running through the cocktail list in every pub along the river. But somehow, this year feels different…
Sometimes, life can feel as if you’re banging your head against a brick wall, wading through treacle or taking 2 steps forward 1 step back…And if it’s really bad, you can multiply those idioms by 10.
Sometimes, people say and do the most awful, unthinkable things to each other.
Sometimes, your soul withers a tiny bit when you realise just how much hate, anger, jealousy and despair there is in the world.
Sometimes, strangers surprise you with a smile and a kind gesture.
Sometimes, human kindness shows itself as a remarkable force and evil can’t put up a fight against that power.
Sometimes, you take a deep breath in and breathe out the love that surrounds you and you smile as all the negativity gets washed away.
