Good morning friends,
No matter what you are feeling after this divisive election, regardless of where your vote falls, or where you live, or what you believe, please, take a moment to breathe.
I stayed up late watching the results of the American election roll in, from the comfort and blessed safety of my home here in Canada, and finally went to bed when at 12:30 it hadn’t been called yet. I feared the worst, and hoped for the best. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and checked my phone for the results. I was shocked, deeply saddened, and scared. Honestly I was in disbelief and ridden with anxiety and emotion. I just want to extend a hand and hug to everyone in America, and say that this is the choice that has been made by the people who voted, and this is now the catalyst for real true change. America you are now faced with the reality; racism, sexism, bigotry, hatred still exist. And now it’s time to turn this around, reflect on this and work towards a more loving and caring world and home.
With all of this being said, breathe, reflect, meditate. Take pause and do a little self care if you’re feeling like I am. Make a cup of tea, take a bath, go for a run, knit, colour, bake. Time to calm the nerves and come back at the world with a game plan for change, for inclusivity, equality and most of all for love.
Take care of each other.
