how are you?
We are in what it's called: Post election Stress! Did you know that's a real thing?
There are tons of articles, as I found out, about how to deal with this.
And do you know what the most googled thing was during election night?
I'll tell you later ;)
Wasn't tis supposed to be a peaceful transmission of power ? Things change.
Opinions are so divided over this, it's causing fights in families.
Not because of the parties.
Not because of the candidates.
Because we, as adults have not learned how to listen to other people's strong opinions without reacting strongly. Either outward or inward.
What would your family look like if you could listen to anything your loved ones say and
NOT defend yourself?
NOT get loud?
NOT put the other one down?
NOT trying to be right?
What if you could accept things as they are.
Strong opinions and all.
Life gets better that way. Accepting the what is. As is.
My Fellow German, Eckhart Tolle, talks about this. How the EGO gets in the way of accepting the what is.
“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”
I like that. See what emerges from you to better the situation. Work with it, not against.
Accept your loved ones as they are.
Accept your circumstances, concerning your loved ones, the political state, your friends and co worker's opinions and then act with compassion.
Let t me know how it goes !
Oh, to answer the question about the most googled phrase on election night:
nearest cookie delivery
and nearest liquor shop!!
