WHW {#77}

Happy hump day everyone! Hopefully the week's going quickly for you--mine has been all over the place with a 2 hour power outage at school on Monday leaving us without power, phones or internet, and a half day at work yesterday because MG and I had an appointment for an echocardiogram at the hospital for the baby (everything looked great!). So, today feels like it got here pretty quickly, and luckily we've had some bursts of sunshine the last day which have been few and far between lately. 
I was also a little M.I.A. yesterday because I needed a break from social media. I've been feeling really overwhelmed by all of the negativity that seems to be put out there lately. Republicans against Democrats, seeing celebrations of certain groups of people/political party's lack of power now, people bashing the Women's March, Democrats bashing Republicans, facts and figures about attendance.... It's not doing good things for my soul or for my stress levels which I know isn't good for the baby. I've been not logging in as often, and unfollowing when needed.

In that vain, and based on the responses to the Kid President video I posted on Monday, today's post is going to be filled with things that bring a smile to our faces and remind us of kindness. We need more of this every day. Not the pointing fingers, celebrating others' losses, looking for evil, arguing. Just happy things, love and acceptance. So, here goes...get ready to put on your happy pants!

Just remember, we all have things in common:

And we all need a helping hand once in a while:

And challenges that life throws at us:

So find someone, especially someone who has a different view than you, and show them some kindness.

We all could use it.

If you don't feel like smiling, or participating in the kindness train, this is my response to you:

Have a happiness and kindness-filled Wednesday (and hell, let's get crazy and go for the rest of the week too while we're at it!)
Link up with Jessi and I below to share what's hap-"pinning" with you lately.

  8. Yes to all of this, I just can't wrap my head around all the negativity either and it blows my mind how much people are going back and forth on social media. Just stop! Not one single post has swayed my opinion or views, all it does it spread hate. Sending lots of *hugs* <3

  10. Everything going on in the world right now definitely is overwhelming - it's good to walk away from it for a while!

  11. Kindness is the easiest gift we can give another person. It costs us nothing to treat others the way we would like to be treated!

    I wholly agree about needing time away from the stress and craziness of how people have been typing and speaking as of late.

  12. love this post! the negativity is so real! I don't even want to get into it (although it can be hard to resist). we need to learn from each other not bash each other!
    If i don't get toothpaste on my shirt it's a win for the day! I actually have to brush my teeth before i put my shirt on...too many incidents! ;)

  13. I love that hanger around the cat photo. I was dying laughing. I needed the laughs today. You are right, there is way too much hate and negativity on social media lately. I just want to ignore it all as well!

  16. These choices for today are perfect - love the inspiration mixed in with some funnies. That cat with the hanger gets me every time. I'd never heard that candle quote before, but it's SO TRUE. So glad your last dr appt went well!

  17. Love all your positive and happy quotes and pics today! Much needed. I hope as we get further in to the Trump presidency that we all stand up for what we believe in in positive ways and theres less hatred between parties.

  23. Aww those puppies are the cutest! I'm about to delete FB from my phone, every time I open it I'm just flooded with news and opinions. Definitely not good for the soul!

  24. So happy all is good in the baby department! I agree social media is just too overwhelming right now...I get a headache trying to read and just can't. The last photo of the cute pooch already has me smiling :-)

  25. Oh my goodness, those puppies cuddling are ADORABLE! I'm not on social media a ton, but I am trying to spread the word about things I care about. It can get overwhelming sometimes too, especially when people are mean or even just sarcastic, because it's all too serious.

  27. So glad everything looked great at your hospital appointment! It is so good to get away from social media now and then, especially when there's an overload of negativity. Glad you gave yourself a much needed break! That tupperware funny especially made me laugh, because it's so true! We do all have things in common. ;) *hugs* xo - Brenda // ChattingOverChocolate.com
