Let your light shine anyway

candles-fiveI do not usually state anything political in my posts, and today will be no different. What I will state, however, is my feelings of grief are almost (almost, but not totally) overwhelming right now.

I grieve because somehow, a person who is the epitome of negativity, greed, misogyny, racism, and predatory behavior is our president elect, and I can not be happy about this. I can’t even be in acceptance yet.

For now, grief is where its at. It doesn’t mean I am giving in to the darkness of my mood, nor giving up my life force to the darkness. Feeling grief means I am fiercely in love with my country, and I feel that my country is severely challenged by this development.

I do not mean to offend anyone who voted for this person. However, I do send out my heart -felt condolences to all who are also in shock and grief. Feeling your pain as well.

We still have a lot to do. We still have a light within us. We still have love.
