I knew all along that this was not only an historic election, it was overflowing with emotion and passion. No matter how you believe or voted, it was really good to see Americans care again. Really good.
I loved reading through my friends' statuses this morning and how much joy & happiness they are experiencing. How hopeful we finally feel for the future. Say goodbye to the "same old, same old!!"
With that said, can I say I feel so light today? I feel like I can breathe, like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I feel hope and joy and genuinely passionately excited for our future!!
I know nothing changes overnight and the road will be long and hard. But for the first time ever in my life, I am excited about taking that road. I am excited to be a part of it. I am excited that my children are old enough to realize what this all means, that they are a part of this historic moment.
I feel like the fog of the past eight years is drifting away. I wish I could explain it better, because I am so incredibly surprised by how I am feeling. I thought today we'd have a new president elect and I would be either sad or happy for the choice and that would be it. But that is not "it." What I feel is every cell in my body vibrating with the anticipation of change. It's more than happiness.... it's a joyful, total "being-ness."
I could ramble on and never be able to express this feeling. But whatever it is, it feels GOOD!!!!
