The election is important, it's also very stressful.  It doesn't make things easier not knowing who the winner is and that we may not know for a while.  Part of me wishes we could just rip the damn band-aid off and announce a winner.  Whether it's Trump or Biden, I just want to know...the waiting sucks.  With that being said, I spent some time recently thinking about things in my life, that no matter who the President is, will not change.   While these are my thoughts and random musings, I hope that in some way shape or form, they resonate with you as well.  Regardless of who wins the election, these things will never change or be taken away from you.  Relax- take a deep breath - we can't control everything.  And it's gonna be okay.
