It is very early and I woke up with a knot in my belly. It's Election Day and I am more than sick of this nonstop election cycle. I've reached a point that I'm no longer watching / reading / listening to any news. Maybe you feel like me and feel like your identity has been a talking point for the last year. In addition to racial issues, religious issues and gender issues, the media has relentlessly been trash talking millennials for their apathy, attempting to nag us into voting. I voted early so I could get on with my life, but the world around me won't stop. Even tomorrow, I know there will be chaos. Insanity probably. I'm doing my best to shut it all out and breathe and focus on the things in my control.
Knowing what you have the power to do, to change, to experience is important. Today, eating well is within my power. Practicing yoga is within my power. Breathing easy is within my power. Productivity is within my power. Looking at flowers is within my power. That's where I'll start.
