A Different World

It’s a different world right now than what I envisioned

With every new day, it seems that we go back to old ways

Many have interjected and reminded me that we have come far from where we were – and I will agree

But even in that moment of realization, I can’t help but think we should be so much further

We could do so much better

We would actually be great

I can’t help but question and wonder, what as a people, are we afraid of?

Why can’t we embrace our differences but understand we are one

Why can’t we do what’s right instead of what is easy?

Why can’t we empower each other instead of glorifying power?

Why can’t we live in peace instead of setting it as a goal?

Why can’t we be love and practice empathy instead embracing fear or saying “hope things work out for you real soon”?

Real change requires vulnerability, courage and selflessness

                             Money in politics only produces temporary solutions

                                        Temporary solutions continue to divide the haves and have nots

                   I am not my sister’s keeper

I am my sister.

                   What I envision is a different world. So close but so far.

Hi! My name is Cheryl but my friends call me Bloom. I'm a 34 year old true, old soul millennial who decided to start a blog about becoming an adult, a woman, foodie and dating. I love self help books, oldies and talking to people about life. I like to laugh and tell jokes. I like to buy "sh!t" as my dad says that I usually don't need but what girl doesn't?! Thanks for stopping by. Come back any time.
