Every day for the last 4 years I have woken up and at some point suddenly remembered with an unwelcome jolt that Donald Trump was president. Every single day the shock rang through my entire body; how can this be true, how can even one person have voted for his policies of hate and division?
Today I was taking my littlest to school, very early in the morning and particularly under-caffeinated, when I was hit with the good kind of shock - Biden and Harris are in charge. Hallelujah. Halle-freaking-lujah.
It feels like a mighty weight has been lifted off our shoulders. Yes, we have a lot of work to do and this pandemic rages on and on, but at last, we have adults in charge again. What a sweet, sweet relief.
Today feels like a fresh start, a new day, a time to wipe the slate clean and start over with hope and optimism restored. I may or may not have ordered a new planner last night (spoiler alert, I did) - what can I say, fresh starts and clean slates are always refreshing. (Plus, the planner I am using has Sunday as the start of the week when I most definitely see Monday as the start of the week, it's all in the details. I am working on designing a paper planner, but it won't be available until later in the year).
I'm feeling so much better about planning for the future than I have been for a long time. Here's to hope and optimism, may they always be with us!
