IT WON’T! That’s the truth……..it just won’t. Why? Because we will continue living our lives just as we always have, we still have free will, we can still choose our destiny, our lives and whether we experience success or failure still lie within our own capacity to dream and make the things happen that we believe in.
WE ALL FEEL LIKE THS AT TIMES!
Was I rooting for Trump to become President?….absolutely not! But then, my leaning towards Hilary Clinton was based more on the fact that she’s a woman (and therefore possibly a little less likely to push the ‘red button’ on a whim?!….not the best of reasons!), so really I had no strong feelings either way. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen so many Presidents come and go, all controversial and all coming with their own sensational cock-ups, that I no longer feel the need to panic about such things? I’ve lived through Watergate, Clinton’s sexual shenanigans and having a Hollywood actor as President, and whilst I sincerely do believe that Trump is Narcissistic and possibly a psychopath, can he really be any worse on a global level?
Of course, I may be proved wrong on that one and he may well turn out to be a dangerous man, but as we as individuals have absolutely no control over the reality that he is now President of the USA, we might as well just focus on our own lives and get on with it.
Shades of Brexit panic spring to mind as well, has the world come to an end? No. Will Brexit enable us to trade globally more freely? Maybe. Has it affected most people’s everyday lives? No. And this is the same….
Belive in yourself and your dreams, work hard towards achieving your goals, don’t waste your energy on getting het up about something you have no control over. Life, and how our own lives turn out is entirely up to us, the decisions we make and how hard we’re prepared to work to achieve them.
Some of my lifelong advice to my children include:-
FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, DREAM BIG, DON’T HAVE A PLAN ‘B’ AND IGNORE THE THINGS YOU CANNOT CHANGE…..
IN THE WORDS OF THE SERENITY POEM:-
GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE
THE COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN
AND THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
