Emotional Fitness thoughts and tips

Today has become a day to shop. Take time from the rush to buy things you can do without to think about our political process and your place in that process.

Politics polarizes people and the media aids in that process. Fortunately, our founding fathers provided checks and balances to stay the hands of those who want ultimate power.  Thoughtful and independent voters remain a might check on the lust for power.

The more passionate you are about your party or your candidate, the more you are voting with your heart and not your brain.  Don’t short change your country, follow these tips to think about what matters.

Tip one: Focus on issues, not party, personalities, or media stabs and jabs at candidates

Tip two: Spend more time listening to the ones you disagree with than your favorite candidate

Tip three: Vote as wisely as you can.

Tip Inspiration: Obviously that this is President’s Day. and not this  Word Press Daily Prompt: Money for Nothing.

If you’re like most of us, you need to earn money by working for a living. Describe your ultimate job. If you’re in your dream job, tell us all about it — what is it that you love? What fulfills you? If you’re not in your dream job, describe for us what your ultimate job would be.

I have retired from my must work job and now work at  my dream jobs and there are two: Job number one? Being a hands-on grandparent. Job number two? Nourishing Emotional Fitness Training.

  1. Like the LBJ quote. Reminds that if the president is a democrat all the republicans say he is wrong and if he’s a republican all the democrats say he is wrong. You mean to tell me that nothing a president from the opposing party does anything right or is supportable?

    • That was one of my favorites also. Make it one of your cartoon subjects, but be careful Carl, you are seeking cor the good in all and the haters and ranters do not like that. Thank you for commenting.
