Just some personal thoughts

Today is monumental in the history of our country, I get that…truly, I do….but, I am so glad that this election is going to be over.  I have never seen such mean, rude, and so many thin skinned individuals who can dish it out but not take it. We live in such a society today, no one is really entitled to their own opinion without some kind of ridicule from someone who does not feel the way they do, so they bash them.  I am sick of it.  The sad part is, even after this election, it will continue.  We have become such a self centered culture, we think everyone should see things the way we do, or they’re wrong.  If we were all the same, this would be a very boring world.

My fifteen year old son and I have some very interesting conversations and he astounds me with his intelligence on current affairs and politics.  Yet, even though he knows a lot more than I do about it, he still feels “live and let live” and I am inclined to feel the same way.  I don’t care who you vote for (or if you don’t vote and never have, like me), what color you are, what sexual orientation you are, if you weigh 80 lbs or 500 lbs….if you are nice to me, I am nice to you.  I have NO reason to ever look down my nose at someone else and feel like I am a better human that anyone, but neither does anyone else.  In my new role as a hospice nurse (which I love love love) the reality hits home even more strongly, life is short and goes by in an instant….Live while you can, until you can’t live it anymore.  Leave a legacy of being a decent human being and be positive, even toward people who don’t see the world the way you do…

Have a blessed day!!
