I would like to apologize for not blogging the last two weeks. I don’t usually have a problem deciding on a topic to write about. However, in our current political and divisive climate I have found it difficult to stay hopeful and positive for our future as a nation. I believe we have some hard lessons ahead as collectively we have taken our democracy and freedoms for granted. But, I don’t want to focus on this as my blog is titled,‘beapositive.’
Over the past days I have been really focusing on just being the best human being I know how to be. I can only control my thoughts and actions. Even though I don’t understand the choice half our country has made in following this President, I cannot control their thoughts or choices. Instead, I have decided to focus on my blessings and the people close to me. When I leave my house I make it a point to smile to others and engage in conversation about things we have in common, our family, our home and our dreams.
I just tell myself whatever comes my way I will be able to handle it. What choice do I have? Let’s be kind to one another during this time and set a positive example for our children.
