Shrugging off the Mope

Some conclusions after Saturday’s shlumpy behavior:

  1. You can do all the actions without reading every headline and feeling every feeling.
  2. It’s going to be a long 4 years so preserve your strength.
  3. You deserve the blanket fort of personal okayness that exists in the present moment.
  4. You have to keep your job in order to keep tithing funds to the ACLU, NRDC, etc.
  5. In order to keep your job you need to be somewhat rested and able to focus.
  6. Pretend to be a ruthless businesswoman.
  7. Grow bigger. Get more shit more done. Apply this across your life.
  8. Leaders will emerge out of this chaos, and then we will start to feel better.
  9. More hope: the voices of Michelle and Barack come February 2017.
  10. People more scared than you (and with more reason for immediate fear) need steadying people about them.
  11. Times are sad. We’re in this together. Don’t feel so lonely.
  12. You can still feel gratitude.
