Today I am going to attempt to temporarily suspend fixation on the past atrocities associated with this holiday, the massive injustices being committed against the original inhabitants of this land as I type these words, and the systemic inequalities and divisions that plague these United States of America.
I am going to spend quality time with my family, enjoy the fruits of the harvest, and acknowledge the multitude of blessings that have fallen into my lap.
Tomorrow I will avoid rabid consumerism that only serves to feed the Beast.
Be grateful for the little things that we all tend to take for granted. Seek contentment however fleeting. Spread unconditional love. Embrace humility.
In a perfect world media coverage of the 2016 United States of America’s Presidential Election should have ceased on October 7th around 6PM EST with the exception of short 30 second non-partisan ads featuring inspirational reasons and reminders to vote.
I could not even muster the energy to watch last night’s debate. I am sure it was a friggin’ train wreck. It is a shame that Jill Stein and Gary Johnson were not allowed to participate once again
I want to give you some free advice. Going forward it will be better for your mental well-being if you ignore it. Tune it out! I can already feel my anxiety levels decreasing and it has been all of three days.
The constant mental bombardment we subject ourselves to in an election year in this country is completely unnecessary and likely extremely harmful to our overall well being as individuals and as a society.
