It’s hard to fathom how the country went so wrong with yesterday’s election. I can’t say that things won’t be as bad as we fear. I’m afraid that they’ll be worse. So many, many people are going to suffer badly.
Our task is to figure out how to thrive given the circumstances.
One of my favorite sayings is . . . “The best revenge is living well.”
That’s what I think we should do. Let’s not pretend that something horrible hasn’t happened. It has. But we should enjoy ourselves and our loved ones. We should work to create a better, happier world. We should work to increase well-being. What other people do certainly affects us, but they’re going to do what they’re going to do. And we can live well.
Which brings me to how we can do this. And, for that, I turn to Nkosi Johnson:
“Do all you can, with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are.”
That’s how we can make things better. Or, at least, that’s what I’m doing to increase well-being:
I’m going to do everything I can with what I have, in the time that I have, where I am.
Way more to come.
