I have a secret.
This secret has saved my fragile sanity during this election season, and I am truly grateful for it.
I haven't heard or seen a single political ad.
Not a SINGLE one.
The secret to my inner peace and maintenance of my fragile sense of sanity?
I turned off the television...and the radio.
I didn't watch a single debate...well, not by choice anyway. My daughter had to watch one for school, so I yelled at the screen for about fifteen minutes and did a fair amount of eye rolling and then walked out of the room.
In walking away, I got my power back.
I am filled with gratitude for the process of election in this country. I'm grateful to be able to be apart of it, to vote, to make my voice count.
But mostly, I'm grateful for the written word, for print media, which can be read
...out loud...while doing an impression of Sean Connery.
See? Fragile sanity.
To my U.S. readers, Happy Election Day!
