:: Heartbroken, shocked, disappointed, outraged, ashamed + embarrassed that this is the outcome. What a tragic turn of events for our country + the world. In mourning, but when I rise, when we rise we shall spread light into the collective racist, misognyist, sexist fractured heart ::

♀♀♀♀♀ VOTED ♀♀♀♀♀

♀♀♀♀♀I voted. I didn’t realize the wave of emotion that would arise in me as I saw not only a woman’s name our Presidential ballot, but someone whom I believe is capable in a most challenging position most of us will never be privy too. I pressed that little button three times + made a wish. For a fleeting moment I felt peace at ignoring what I was voting against in favor in what I voted for. There is no perfection. And in my own life, at every election that I could cast a vote, I did. Having to listen to the harshness + ill talking of others throughout quite a few elections now, this season is different. This process has elicited rhetoric that incited violence, racism, sexism, misogyny, poor financial intelligence + integrity. It leaves me anxious at times that this is what we’ve come to. That someone of this character is even eligible for such a historic + powerful position. It has also deeply saddens me under my anger because I know people that cast a vote in another direction. People I know + do not know making a choice to support the above mentioned. I will continue to believe in the good of people, those with a similar moral compass + intention to rise above hate + divisiveness. I have two daughters whom I’m empowering to have the deserved self confidence, self respect, kindness + intelligence to be in our world that respects + honors women + all of our differences. What a sweet gift it could be that in their lifetime they could only have known an African American President + a female President thus far. ♀♀♀♀♀

If you do not accept your own dignity as a woman, all external trappings shall mean nothing. It has nothing at all to do with any man or with any relationship. Once you accept your own dignity, the whole world will come to you.” -7/1/96 –#yogibhajan #woman
