#MondayMotivation 11.23.20

 


As we approach Thanksgiving week, it may look different for some of us this year. Keep in mind that this, like all things in life, is temporary. We know that the world has changed due to covid19 and we are approaching a potentially difficult winter. Gratitude is a way of focusing on what we have and allows us to brighten and broaden our perspective. It is not about  "toxic positivity" (which means feeling or acting cheerful or happy when you are not), it is about realistic gratitude. That means recognizing imperfections in life, validating feelings, and looking for the good. Humans have an evolutionary negative bias that can hold us back from seeing and recognizing the good that exists in our lives. Gratitude is about noticing, cherishing and savoring the good.

 It is time to work together. 

I realize it is easier to say that if the candidate winning is the one you support. I get that I sit from a place of privilege right now, but four years ago I did not. Four years ago I was shocked and disappointed. Despite my personal feelings I moved forward with an open mind. I treated people respectfully no matter what side of the political isle they were on. I do not hide my political views however I do not bash or blame those that see things differently from me. Working together is crucial. My words from 2016 are still true today.  You can read that article right HERE.

 We are all Americans. It is time to come together as one team, one country, one nation. Kindness is where we start to heal.

Tomorrow is the last day to vote in the 2020 elections. This is a historic election and whoever you vote for, the message I want to send is to go out and vote. Every voice matters.

 The most amazing political ad I have ever seen is the one for Utah Governor race. Both the Republican and Democrat candidates showed up together in an ad asking citizens to vote. They acknowledged that although they have differing political views, they respect each other as people. The also both stated on national news that whoever wins will most likely have a place for the other after the election. 

We are one nation, we are all part of a larger common humanity. No matter what our politics, kindness is universal.

We are only days away from a historical elections in a global pandemic, and also in the midst of a Supreme Court nomination hearing that will drastically change the leaning of the court. Now more than ever it seems that kindness has been lost. This week I chose to post a Lincoln quote which helps to remind me that when this election passes, not matter who is our POTUS, we are ONE country. True kindness and not fake talking points and propaganda will shine in the end. I want to let go of what has not been healthy or helpful. It is really important for me to look beyond what people say and focus on what they do. I strive to be kind to others, but I am not always successful. Every single one of us is guilty of moments of being unkind. It is part of the human condition to be imperfect. That being said, it is crucial to remember kindness does not mean letting go of healthy boundaries and tolerating toxicity, it means acting with empathy, understanding and truth.
