As I sit here worried for the future of me, my family and in particular my son, I am hoping that the other 48% and I are proven wrong. I did not vote to leave Europe, but we live in a democracy and that was the decision we as the UK (as it stands at the moment) took. I cannot change the vote and wish that Cameron had considered his actions long before it got to his resignation – yes I think there was some (not all) uneducated voting, and blatant lies in the campaign, but this was too complex an issue to ever be put to a public vote, and the consequences will now be realised.
Enough about politics – we are where we are and there are some that are very happy about that, and others that are incredibly disappointed, but I don’t want us to be divided even further. I can’t change history or politics but I can ensure that we bring up our son to the best of our ability to be kind, caring, compassionate and tolerant of others no matter what their age, race or background and give him the best start in life that we can.
In an attempt to try and be positive, today my faith in humanity was restored when we took Harry to where we go married, and when we had finished eating a couple on the table next to us offered Harry their cupcake from afternoon tea, which he of course took with a shy ‘thank you,’ and promptly devoured. This is what I want to see more of, so I am paying it forward in hope that in some way we can all do our bit to help a fragmented society pull together – no bickering, name calling or blame. I am incredibly upset and angry at the result but I refuse to lash out at others who don’t have the same views as me.
All you have to do is comment below and say who you think needs a pick me up and I will choose a winner at random to receive a free item of their choice from my Etsy shop, as well as donating £10 to their chosen charity (or JDRF if they prefer) in a small attempt to make the world a happier place. All comments before 8pm Wednesday 29th June (EDIT) will be given a number and then I will choose one at random to win a prize for themselves and a friend. In return all I ask is that you try to make someone smile today and appreciate what you can, which for me is my family, creativity and living in a beautiful part of the world.
