I have the entire day off from work today, paid, just so I can vote. Yup, it will take the whole day to do that! LOL. My daughter and I, and my son, I believe, are among the few in this family who are on the same page. Political discussions in every venue were stayed out of on my part as I am not vocal and don’t care to get into it with people, especially family. I also recently noticed that two of the four of my coworkers are completely opposite of how I feel. Again, I stayed out of it, I have to work with these people! Their beliefs, their thoughts are theirs, and I am not going to convince anyone, nor do I care to try. I smile, and focus on what feels good and right to me, not their arguments and efforts to influence me.
Last night, as I watched two of my favorite shows on tv, I noticed that the commercials were not filled with finger pointing, offensive, and bitter political ads like usual on the night before an election. Amazing.
I have put out the intention to wake up tomorrow to the candidates that have our country’s, our world’s, best interests at heart. After voting, it’s the best I can do right now. And if the results are not what I dream of, then I will surround the next president and elected officials with love as well, and pray that they may act from their hearts, not from power, programming and monetary motives.
Off I go, to cast my vote and to enjoy the rest of my day. Plus, 🙂 the sun is shining! First time in days!!
