The last two weeks have been really intense and emotionally draining, for lack of better words.

If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen my post about my own struggle to find the words to express my emotions toward systematic racism, George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, as well as anti-racism resources, tips on how to get involved, inspirational art and uplifting quotes.

Today I wanted to use this space to do a mental check-in with all of you to let you know that while things may seem bleak, I truly believe that everything is going to be okay.

How could I possibly think such a thing at a time like this?! Because amidst outrage, pain and frustration–not to mention the backdrop of Covid-19, the world came together demanding justice and change!

So whether you’re publicly protesting, or creating change and spreading awareness at home with your family and friends, I stand with you.

I’m choosing to still be a good person despite the fact that there are bad people in the world. I’m choosing to see the positive through the negative, and I choose to appreciate the rainbow at the end of the rain.

Sending you all virtual hugs,
