Today’s gratitude has to do with recovery time. No, I’m not talking about recovery time from exercising or running. And I’m not talking about recovery time from an illness or recovery such as a rehab. I’m talking about my personal recovery time from shock!

So yes, I cried and carried on yesterday over the election result. I even acted like a ninny on social media. So what. Yesterday was one day. One day and I am done. In the past there were things I thought I’d NEVER GET OVER. But today, and maybe it is because I’m older now, but my recovery time is a lot shorter. THANK GOD.

I do feel better today. A lot better. I am even smiling and conversing normally with folks. I am back. And it only took one day to be devastated.

So today I am grateful for a quicker recovery time and the tools that certain people have given me to work with in my spiritual kit.

  • It’s none of my business what other people think of me.
  • Breathe in, breathe out and don’t drink in between breaths. *
  • Pray
  • Help others
  • Trust God

and everything will be okay. Yesterday I was only able to do one* of these suggestions but today I recognize the rest. Again, a quicker recovery time from such an emotional blow.

Yes, everything is going to be fine. Whew, that feels better.

If I lost some acquaintances along the way then so be it. Again, none of my business what they think of me.

While other peoples views don’t align with mine, it doesn’t mean I hate them no matter what they may think. I actually like our diversity because it challenges me to make me think. I just don’t like it when others get loud and obnoxious and trust me I’m talking about both sides of the aisle here. And it doesn’t always have to be related to politics but sports and religion play into this equation too.

But anyway, it is neither here nor there. I know I have learned a few things about myself and isn’t that the point? To learn and grow? Even if I have to act like a ninny sometimes?

Yeah. I am picking myself back up.
