Disappointed With the 2016 Election Results? Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle! by Eirene Heidelberger
The City of Chicago is somber today, the day after the U.S. election, because the result is not what our state voted for. Our people are quiet, sad, angry, incredulous – all unhappy adjectives describe the majority of our people. Last week we were on the highest high of highs after our Cubs won the World Series, and now here we are only days later in a gloomy funk. So here's what I'm doing about it:
- I've decided I will go on with my day and my normal routine.
- I will keep my plans.
- I will surround myself with like-minded individuals who feel my pain.
- I will share my thoughts and vent and not stay silent.
- I will forge ahead for myself.
The election results are not what I hoped for, but, nobody will steal my happy sparkle. I will dress in all black to mourn what could have been, but I'll add some bling to remind myself that our country will be OK. Shine on!
