We can each identify a number of familiar "candidates" within ourselves. These "candidates" have frequently demonstrated to us their governing styles and the consequences that their approaches bring into our lives and the lives of those around us.
We can vote to allow negative "candidates" such as fear, doubt, pessimism, defensiveness, and selfishness to govern our thought and behavior. Or we can vote for our day to be governed by positive "candidates" such as love, joy, optimism, generosity, peace, etc.
It is good to remind ourselves that we have a right to vote in this daily “election” and that our vote makes a lot of difference in our life experience!
