Epic Day. Not the norm. Out of the ordinary. Like none other. Historical. History in the making.
All of these phrases pretty much describe today, where we celebrate our Inauguration 2017.
Swearing in Donald J. Trump as 45th President of the United States is a day of mixed emotions.
One of my dearest friends called me phone today, leaving a message. She was literally crying and completely out of sorts. She had a phrase that has caused me to chuckle all day. She said,
It's like someone told me to drink the water from the toilet, explaining, 'Oh, it's okay, we scrubbed it really good and it's all clean, but you go ahead and drink it. It'll be fine.'
Graphic, huh? She's hilarious.
Whether you voted for Trump, voted for Hillary, or voted (to support) any of the others, HE won. And whether you like it or not, you have one of two choices; make that three:
- Bitch. Moan. Complain. And do nothing about it (and get absolutely NO-where),
- Suck it up. Be an optimist. And do what you can to make it work, (whatever that may be),
- Stand up. Be strong. And Be The Change You Want To See (a hybrid of the first two).
Find a way to work alongside and/or alter what lies in front of you, in whatever way possible, and with whatever resources you may have. Who knows, this may work out just fine.
Remember, NO ONE IS PERFECT. No one gets it all right. No one gets it all done. And no one is liked by everybody, all the time.
Don't be a victim. Be a solution.
Yes, it was an epic day. It will be one I will remember for a long time. And while I can't honestly say I walked away with one single "tingle" over his speech--like so many of the great Presidents of our past, he at the very least stayed true to his motto, saying he will:
MAKE AMERICA GREAT (again)
Personally, I think America is already great. I feel it's The Greatest Country In The World. I am proud to be an American. I appreciate our leaders (for the most part), and I work hard to support them in whatever way I feel I can...in the best ways possible.
Do What You Can To Be A Change For Good Wherever You Are.
