Election Reflection: Facing Uncertainty Together (ep. 304)

As part of our Electing Gratitude series, John O’Leary shares his perspectivee on the election + answers questions from the Live Inspired community.

Earlier this week, we officially cast votes in local + national elections. Regardless of our personal politics or if our candidates won the results of tomorrow’s election, this season has been nothing short of tumultuous.

As we’re reeling with elevated emotions, I wanted to make space for our Live Inspired Community to be present to the uncertainty that we are experiencing together.

Today, I’m listening to your thoughts and questions and share my thoughts and hopefully, some inspired perspective.

As bridge-builders, let’s remember that we have the power to make a difference, things are far better than they seem and the best of our days remain in front of us.
