The United States held our election last week. We chose who will lead us. As the world watched, Americans cast their ballots. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. In fact, the losing candidate received 12.5% more votes in this election than the winner in our last election (votes still being counted)!
Yea, I know. Collective decisions don't always go our way. We get mad, stomp around and pout in destructive ways only adults know how. Living with decisions that don't go our way can freeze us.
Then magic happens.
As humans, we have a powerful tool.
We ADAPT … FAST.
In fact, we ADAPT faster than any other species on the planet.
The way I see it, there is no winning or losing, especially in this election. Only ADAPTATION.
The word ADAPT comes from Latin, meaning "to join fitted."
It is time for us to JOIN FITTED.
How, you might ask?
A friend texted me a clue today, "Wouldn't it be nice if we could all get along, hear differing viewpoints and respect each other?"
That's the spirit!
Your strongest human characteristic is to ADAPT, especially when things don't go your way. JOIN FITTED. Hear differing points of view and respect each other.
This is THE path to your humanity.
Last week, we held an election in the United States. With more votes cast than EVER before, I don't see a country divided.
I see a chorus of millions of voices.
Now it's time to ADAPT. Listen to diverse viewpoints. Decide and act with wisdom. Time to JOIN FITTED.
Time to heal our humanity.
