With the election finally over, it’s time to purge all those negative feelings you’re holding.
If your man lost, and you think the President is the worst person ever, calm down. The country will survive.
If your man won, and you’re just angry at the pummeling and unending number of derogatory remarks he’s taken over the years, calm down. Please stop rubbing it in the other side’s face now that your side has won and you have something to cheer about.
Fact is, our country needs to move forward and both sides could handle toning things down and working together more.
And more than likely, if you’re reading this, you could handle focusing less on politics and more on your work. And more importantly, your dreams. Your plans. Where you want to be in five years.
So, here’s some Eastern philosophy to chew on. You’ll get both of the quotes if you just think on them a bit.
“The more I want to get something done, the less I call it work.” — Richard Bach. (Hat tip: Zen Every Day.)
“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” — Chinese proverb. (Hat tip: Zen Every Day.)

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.
P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a success. I seriously couldn’t have done it with everyone’s support. I’m excited to say that Little Man, and the Dixon County War has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here). My second novel, Sold Out, has also done well, also, going as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.
