It’s challenging these days to feel and express genuine pride in America. I think my stress level has increased about five-fold since Election Day. Every day I feel torn between two competing responsibilities: staying informed about the nightmarish political news, and managing my mental and emotional health by ignoring the absurd madness. So if, like me, you’re feeling slightly less than patriotic this Independence Day weekend, I get it!
But defeatist despair is not an option. Each day I focus on what I CAN do, and then I go out and do it: being awesome with people, meeting them where they are, and being a source for solutions; striving to maximize my potential physically, intellectually, interpersonally; loving big, being bold, and charging toward the goals that matter to me. No matter what.
My mentor and coach reminds me often: “What we focus on expands.” TRUTH!! So this holiday weekend, I invite you to be the brightest light you can possibly be. Take a moment to notice all the treasures around you, and let yourself ooze with gratitude.
THANK YOU for being part of the Sweet Mo Community!! I love you all.
