The Reality of Grey

This world will heal even if it's a grey one.

The Reality of Grey
Kelly Poston

You look into the sky and you see dreams.

You look on the Internet and you see nightmares.

But where is reality? Where is the truth? Where is the justice?

How can you look into the sky and be overwhelmed by the most beautiful sunset without remembering the awful things happening in the world?

How can you look on the Internet and see the cruel, barbaric behavior of the human race without remembering the good in the world?

This world is not either or. It's not night and day, not yes or no. Definitely not black or white. This world is both, dusk and dawn, maybe, and grey. Most of all grey.

It would be easier to understand this world if everyday was gloomy and dark. Horrible storms that match the actions of those around us. But when you look into the evening sky and see swirls of reds, oranges, and yellows, you can't help but appreciate the beauty. You can't help but wonder if God did it on purpose?

After a storm, He often leaves a rainbow. After destruction, He rebuilds. After hate, He brings love.

He gives us beautiful endings to our day after horrors have taken place to remind us of hope. With God, nothing is impossible. With God, the reality is clear, the truth is revealed, the justice is met.

This world will meet peace because it has met chaos and destruction.

With every good thing comes a bad thing. With every bad thing comes a good thing. The first will be last and the last with be first. The blacks with be white and the whites will be black. The world is balanced with grey.

Never lose hope that better is to come and never be naïve enough to believe that nothing bad will ever happen. When an act of terrorism arises, lend a hand to help. Look towards God and see the beautiful masterpiece he leaves in the sky. When an act of kindness appears, remember why it is there. Remember that this temporary band-aid will lead you to greater and better things. This world will heal even if it is a grey one.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
