Last week, as I woke up to the news that Donald Trump had been voted to become the President of the United States, I felt devastated. My feelings from Brexit back in June came back with double the ammo. As I tried to speak about my frustration and disappointment with people, many urged for me to think “It’s not that bad”, and to “think positive”. I couldn’t even think about the reality so how was I supposed to think about it positively? That’s when I felt really alone. Maybe I was overreacting. Maybe things weren’t that bad. But as I continued to voice my concerns and sadness openly, step by step, people started to come forward saying they felt the same. That’s when I realised I am not alone. And you are not alone either.
There is no doubt in my mind that we live in uncertain, scary times. It’s clear that people want change and it’s also clear that we have no idea what kind of change lies ahead. It’s also obvious that there are people like me and people like you out there. People who believe in the same things, who hope for a better world, and who are just as perplexed as we are right now, digesting all the latest shocking news.
Because of this, I wanted to do a different video blog this week. There’s no clear how-to or what you should do or what we should think or say.
Instead, this is me sharing my beliefs in what you are not alone in. I realised the more I spoke about the things that frustrated me, the more people came out saying they agreed. That’s when I realised sometimes just sharing what you believe in helps the right people to come forward in your life. Hopefully, by sharing my beliefs with you, you’ll realise you are not alone in believing in any one or more of them.
With that, I wish you love, light & happiness – and until next time…
