Thursday Badinage: May 19, 2016

I am stuck in a long line that is not moving. So painful. So, I thought I would catch up on some reading materials. I saw this quote on the lovely Kusha Alagband’s Instagram.

“I am not quite sure if I believe in the Law of Attraction. There were things I wanted in my life that no amount of positive thinking was going to make it a reality for me. However, I think the law of tough love is making more sense to me these days. Life has thrown a few curve balls my way… I did what anyone would do.. prayed and meditated for the outcome I wanted, but God was tough and only gave me what I needed. I now realize that life is not about fulfilling a wish list; rather a need list. Good and bad experiences are ahead of all of us. How else does a person change, grow and evolve? And just like any warrior woman, I won’t simply survive– but thrive and so will you.” @KushaAlagband

I am in court. Two toddler girls became friends. One girl was sad she had to go without a proper goodbye from her new friend. Amazing. Little kids fostering friendships in a place filled with so much anger, racism, sexism and sadness. It was a weirdly emotional reminder to the rest of us dying in this eternal line…
