Smoke and Mirrors

Updated: Aug 23, 2021



In times of despair and uncertainty, we cling to hope and speak in euphemisms to make ourselves and others feel better.


Encouraging each other to trust, to have faith, to show gratitude, to believe, to keep loving.


All words, powerful words, words filled with potential.


But more often than not, empty words.


Kidding ourselves into believing that positive self talk alone, can make things better, it can’t.
