Optimism Thought of the Week
The Popular Vote
It takes a vast amount of energy to remain on someone’s “good-side” or continue to have the ability to contain the popular vote. We soon learn that our efforts in order to remain on that “good-side”, will one day fail, and any effort we ever made will be long forgotten.
We miss the opportunity to be ourselves, when we continue to be an actor for what someone else wants us to be. We have this one life before us, the one road that lies ahead, in which some of us at certain times will have to travel that road by ourselves.
The popular vote is only temporarily, what’s popular today, is old news tomorrow. What got us here today, may not be in the ingredients for tomorrow.
If it’s anyone you have to be today, “you have to be you.”
