Two posts in one day, because lately it seems like I can never finish one the day I start it. Well, to be fair, last night was a little chaotic with the election, plus my father-in-law visited for a few hours, then we were watching the election results as they came in. I will say my piece about it and then I will leave it. I did not vote for Trump, and I am really disappointed and shocked that things turned out the way they did, but I think both candidates handled the situation gracefully last night. In the end, no matter who is in that position, they will be put through scrutiny and people will look on them with approval or disapproval. One of the great things about our country is that the president cannot just make a rash decision and just carry it out on his own. Like all disappointments, for those of us who didn't get our wish, we will adapt and move on, the sooner we do so the better. I am feeling better about it now than I was last night or even this morning. Oh well. In four years we will be doing this all over again! That makes me exhausted just thinking about it!
Today I wore another one of my new sweater dresses, and it is less flattering than yesterday's dress in my opinion, because it clings more to my not-proud-of places on my stomach. When I decided to buy it, I had two things in my mind; One, that I will eventually lose weight and it will look better, and two, that I am going to try to judge myself less harshly and by buying and wearing these items, I am sending myself a message that I am lovable, attractive, professional and just generally wonderful no matter what I look like.
However you feel about the election results, and wherever you are on your journey, I wish you well and hope you find the peace we all seek.
