When life brings you truth, it brings you clarity.

Well here I sit processing waking up to the news I truthfully never thought would happen.  Yes this is an election post, but don't close this tab, hear me out.  

A large truth has been revealed to us today.  It's one that will take a while for all of us (yes even those who voted for him) to absorb.  However, I don't feel hopeless.  In fact, I feel fired up.  You see, to me I believe that once a truth is revealed, it shows us where we need to do the work.

I'm sorry if you feel scared today, or if you feel sad; I want you to know that I love you and I support you no matter what you believe in.  I truly have your back.  If you feel happy today, have your moment. To those happy, please, I hope that you can show love and support to those around you, no matter how differently they are than you.  

The only way we are going to become united again, is to come from a place of love.  We aren't all there right now.  So take your time to sit with this; and when you're ready will you please join me?  Join me, in taking this time to ground down, make sure we are doing our work personally to assure we are ready, and be prepared to shine a light in some dark times.  Our voices matter now more than ever. 

I'm going to allow this to be an awakening for me.  It's lit me up.  I know I have so much work to do, and while yesterday I was weary; today I am fueled up.  This was what I needed to jump back up and feel ready to REALLY BE the change.  There is no way one man is going to stand in my way of my life's purpose, and there's certainly no way I will stand by and allow him to destroy our beautiful planet and every unique individual that lives here. Allow me to empower you, to remember you HAVE power.  So much power, and if we all can come together for the good; we'll be okay.  

We don't need a presidential candidate to get our work done.  We just need us.  We now know what we are facing.  We have the chance to stare that truth directly in the face and decide, I still choose love.  We get to choose today what kind of people we want to be, and that's a beautiful thing.
