It doesn’t seem quite right to post about all those fashion fads and ramblings at the moment, considering the intense couple of days we have had in Sydney. It’s something words can’t even describe, especially not my words. But I feel for absolutely everyone who has been affected by this, and my prayers go out to you all.
On my way home from work yesterday I was scrolling through the twitter-sphere, and kept coming across dozens of posts on the latest celebrities looks, ‘who wore what’, and all that fluff we fill our lives with. For such a sombre moment, it was shocking to see it there (I know we have clever apps like Hootsuite now, but still, it’s hard to see). These things I couldn’t even bring myself to glance at because it seemed so disrespectful. So unknowing.
I am incredibly grateful for the way Sydney responded though – the #illridewithyou hashtag is the most beautiful thing to ever come out of a hardship and loss. Something I wish I could shout to the whole world, and in my hippie-like way, just tell them to love everyone. Why bother with the hatred and the grudges.
I don’t think this situation is something we will ever fully understand, but it really is a massive reminder to LIVE, and to be thankful that we live in such a beautiful country with incredible people who band together. Thoughts keep buzzing through my head and I wish I could get them all out, but they’re so busy and endless. It’s like having a snitch in there, jumping around. Here’s my little Tuesday inspiration for you – a thoughtful mood lightener.
