Everybody wants to be right.

Until they realize truth, compassion, and community mean more to them than their soap box.

“We’re all learning together every day. Being ‘right’ is a subjective idea based upon individual perspective.

Never forget that.”

Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States of America.

Opening my Facebook feed today, I see a myriad of reactions all across the USA.

The 3 Main Reaction Categories I Have Observed

The most widespread reaction on my personal feed is fear.

Fear largely from those who fall into many ‘minority categories’. Categories that I am also a part of. The most prevalent I’ve seen being LBGTQ and the disabled (#spoonie). This fear is directed with some anger at Trump supporters more often than not.  {This = Division}

I see blatant anger.

Anger from those who feel that anyone who cast a third party vote has created this situation. {This = Division}

I see happiness communicated not in a kind manner but as smugness as well.  {This = Division}

Happy, ‘smug’ statuses coming mainly from those demographics whom: have managed to maintain what is considered a ‘conservative’ or ‘traditional’ lifestyle, prefer to stay close to home, and whom lack severe chronic medical conditions.

One Country, Many Ideals

How can we ever begin to hope that a country which seems to be so divided can come to a place of basic mutual respect and true interconnected efficiency?

By concentrating on simple, common goals on the individual level.

There are a few things lacking in the forefront of the minds of our citizens today that I feel we must all focus on from this point forward:

♢Humility. 

♢Intention. 

♢Integrity.  

♢Ingenuity.

 

 

 

Why these 4 characteristics?

 

These traits share the common thread of possessing the ability to connect individuals, thoughts, and circumstances through a conscious common ground.

No matter how divided we may feel as a whole at the moment, with simple mindfulness we can still grow together positively and authentically.

If the thought of that makes you want to roll your eyes, you quite simply are one of the keys that we (each and every demographic) need to see join us most of all. Truly, we need you as a country.

I come to you as a sister.

HUMILITY 

Regardless of who you did or did not vote for, take humility into your heart.

“A modest or low view of one’s own importance, humbleness”

We are only as valuable as the value we offer. Offer those things that are priceless.

Offer compassion. Offer your ability to listen. Offer your every day mistakes to turn them into wisdom.

We’re all learning together every day. Being “right” is a subjective idea based upon individual perspective.

Never forget that.

What you think you have all figured out today you may realize you knew nothing about tomorrow.

We all grow exponentially from that daily pattern.

Embrace it.

INTENTION

When we vote, it should be with the hope or intention that our choices will have a widespread positive impact.

Sometimes our individual fears can lead us to making choices which we know are not truly for “the greater good”, whatever that may mean in our own minds.

Now that the 2016 POTUS Election is complete, we are free to turn our full intention to our everyday life choices again. 

Do you intend to live by the Golden Rule? Simply put, to treat others as you would like to be treated. It takes a balance of gentle toughness and intense softness.

Does that idea scare you deep down? It takes bravery, but positively impacts your life and every other.

  Try it out.

INTEGRITY

‘Honesty, decency, fairness, wholeness, and oneness…’

Integrity is doing the right thing even when you think no one is looking.

Integrity is behaving as a person whom the child within could truly admire.

Integrity is the commitment to be a good ancestor.

To be a person of Integrity, one must maintain a mindful moral presence and decide to delight in the freedom that that choice gifts.

The Golden Rule happens to be the number one companion to the goal of living a life of integrity. It leaves nothing to regret and everything truly good to gain.

It keeps life simple.

I think you’ll enjoy it.

INGENUITY

‘Cleverly inventive… Skillful design conception…’

Are you happy about the way that the 2016 elections have turned out? Are you completely bummed? Are you somewhere in between and just looking to the future wondering what we will do next?

Overall, I have seen a growing displeasure in our American citizens.

All sides talk non-stop about our “broken system”.

The complicated arrangement of our government and electoral systems overwhelms, confuses, and intimidates the majority of us.

With the invention of the internet, automobiles, and other communication devices not in existence at the time of our government’s inception, we now have the opportunity to rethink how we may most effectively create a government which truly represents the will of the people.

You, sitting at home, school, work, or on public transportation right now, have skills, insights, and instincts which are needed in order for us all to create a reality that we can be fundamentally proud of.

LET’S MAKE BETTER MISTAKES TOMORROW

In your adventure to incorporate these priceless traits into your life, remember that we all make mistakes.

Be forgiving of yourself and others.

Practice compassion for yourself and others.

Use your voice for the things that matter to you.

Listen to the voice inside.

“Let us neither express, nor cherish, any harsh feeling towards any citizen who, by his vote, has differed with us. Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in the bonds of fraternal feeling.” – Abraham Lincoln

If things are getting a little too much to handle as everybody settles into this new reality, or you find yourself in some form of frozen confusion, take some tips from the graphic below to further help you incorporate humility, integrity, intention, and ingenuity into your life.

We are still the United States of America.

Let’s make it a goal to put emphasis on the ‘United’!
