Regaining Your Happiness After Election Day

If you are like me, my social media timelines were flooded with tears, disbelief, numbness, and sadness.  So take your moment, sit in your feelings, and then take a deep breath. It is time for all of us to get angry and do something about it.  Anger is one of the only emotions that propels people forward.  It makes us see that what we are being offered is not enough and it never was.

Get angry enough to volunteer to help others.

Get angry enough to donate money to women who want to start their own business.

Get angry enough to use your skills to mentor young women.

Get angry enough to start your own non-profit.

Get angry enough to look for another job and live out your true passions.

Get angry enough to leave your job all together and start our own business.

Get angry enough to leave a relationship that you know is not good for you.

Get angry enough to try something different and new.

Get angry enough to surround yourself by friends and family and decide what is next.

Strategic anger is one of the best emotions out there.  Because it forces us to a place that we never would have taken ourselves.

So in the next week, decide what are you angry about.

And turn that anger into purpose, self-love, support for others, and goals.  Sadness makes us feel helpless.  Strategic anger moves us forward.
