I will be a hummingbird!
Sadily, it seems Presidential election years always bring out the worst in us.
Negative attack ads. Absurd hyperbole. The end of the world as we know it.
It’s mostly bullcrap, and we know it.
I’m thinking back to 2007-08 when the world’s financial system was on the brink of collapse. The weird part was, that crisis was actually so scary, both Parties tried to downplay it at the time.
There was acknowledgment by both sides that it was not the time for screaming “RUN” at the top of their lungs.
My mom once told me that the louder little kids cry after an accident or fall, the less badly they are actually injured. The time to worry’s when they don’t make a sound.
I’m not saying we don’t face big problems, issues that are so polarized and difficult that it feels overwhelming at times.
Which is why I’m glad I found this…
If each of us just does the very best we can…
Be the hummingbird.
