After the election I avoided all “news”. I’ve only been able to cope with the current political climate in the form of Samantha Bee, Trevor Noah and Alec Baldwin. And even in the context of humor, it’s still not easy to digest! I’m getting through it on ginger dark chocolate, hot yoga, and the company of your delightful children!
There is something rather poignant, ironic even, that in the same week we celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King Jnr., we also witness the United States presidency being turned over to the antithesis of everything he represents.
It looks like a bleak road ahead, and no doubt the next four years are going to create much pain and turbulence ... but in the long run I sincerely believe these trying times will push us forward, far beyond what we can imagine right now. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
More than ever, this is an amazing time to stand together. To teach our children how to protect their values. To show that our worth is self generated. And to never, never, never give up.
Wishing all the goddesses marching in Washington D.C. this Saturday a safe and happy time.
