The Choice Is Ours

I don’t discuss my personal politics any more than I discuss my personal sex life.... however – I will say that hoping someone fails, just to prove our predictions were right, will only serve to destroy ourselves. This is not terribly bright.

Please think about this.

Half of the country voted for each candidate (with a few more one way) – and throughout time there has always been a winner and a loser.

This is not our country’s first rodeo. So what shall WE do? We each play a role here. What message are YOU spreading today to your fellow Americans? Your sisters and brothers? Your friends and foes?

One of love, hope, support, kindness, compassion, intelligence, appreciation, respect or gratitude?

If not, you are a part of the problem and not a part of the solution.

Whether we LIKE what is happening is irrelevant – it’s still happening. So I CHOOSE to find a way to wrap my mind around the shift and help everyone around me find a pearl amidst the muck.

There are 324,118,787 of us… and only one of him. Where is the real power? Fear will only blind, defeat, weaken and destroy us.

I choose love.

Intimately Yours, Dr. Nancy

    I think for some of us, especially those in the LGBT community, we need to use that fear to be extra careful about our surroundings due to the fact that this will bring out more hate crimes. But we need to turn that fear into motivation to continue to work for the equal freedom of all. But we shouldn’t let it drag us down.

    Dr. Nancy’s Reply:
    Sadly, Fear doesn’t motivate, it weakens. Confidence, Love, Strength, Support – those empower us.

    Hate crimes have always happened where there is ignorance and fear. Spreading more FEAR will be the catalyst, not who lives in the white house.

    I’m not afraid of the president – I’m afraid of the ignorance of the people who believe they are powerless. So, I choose to continue my work to empower – to keep people talking about love and compassion. There is where the strength lies.
