Dear Diary,

I don’t know how NOT to talk about politics right now.

I don’t know how anyone can be talking or thinking about anything else.

It is completely overwhelming me. Every time I start to write something, create something or say something I feel like it is not important or worthwhile because there are so many more pressing things going on in the world right now.

I think it’s essential to be up to date with politics and active where possible. But sometimes you have to step back and look at your life on a smaller scale; make small changes that will have a ripple effect.

I’m so lucky to be able to offer some comfort, distraction and happiness to people on an every day basis with the universal antidote that is music. And I can’t express how much comfort that brings me in return. I’ve said this before, but it becomes truer and more poignant by the day; people really are kind.

Everyone can make small changes to make the world better. Don’t forget to:

– Smile at everyone
– Drink good coffee
– Give everyone the benefit of the doubt
– Tip well
– Compliment people more
– Slow down
– Stop to enjoy small things
– Read good books
– Read real books (not those kindle devils)
– Stroke all the dogs
– Be patient
– Be grateful
– Be kind

With every interaction there is an opportunity to be kind. Let’s all do our best to take those opportunities with both hands.

Lots of love,
Charlotte
