The Sun Still Shines

As I woke this morning, after a long night of fretting over the election, I have discovered a few things…..

The sun is still shining. Christmas music is still happy. Earl Grey Tea is still delicious. The gardens still need attention and life continues on.

Over the last six months, anxiety levels among people in our nation have been through the roof. The news and social media have stoked the fires of fret, and we have become completely helpless in our ability to calm it all down. We’ve all waited for this dreaded moment where the nation will simply break apart, but thankfully…. I woke up and the beautiful sun is still shining. Life is still moving forward. There is still beauty all around.

Take this day, and focus on the beauty of life around you. Everything is going to be ok. The sun still shines.

Happy gardening, my friends.
