SNL Kate McKinnon Hallelujiah
1. Refuse to live in fear
Know that God is still in control, there are still good people in the world, and there are still things that we can do to make a difference in the world. Our rights have not been taken, yet. We will fight. And even if they cage us, we will still sing!
2. Refuse to take this out on my fellow human beings
Consciously love people who have voted for Trump. Recognize that they are getting screwed over, too. We the people are in this together.
3. Continue to be grateful and to enjoy the life I’ve been given
Write down things that make me happy, speak aloud things I’m thankful for
4. Stay informed
Watch my favorite YouTube peeps, read my favorite news sources
5. Do what I can
Random acts of kindness, signing petitions, supporting people, standing up for what is right
6. Stop using Facebook as a self-soother
Wean myself off, again. It’s so easy to keep scrolling and hitting refresh but there are much healthier ways to use my time. Think of other ways to feel safe. Meditate. Read. Take photos. Clean and organize.
7. Reach out to people I love
Writing letters, sending personal messages
8. Keep living life
Taking baths, drinking enough water, journaling
