Historical Me.

If you're like me, you are sitting somewhere right now contemplating tomorrow. Literally. A specific tomorrow.

Today is November 7th, 2016. People have been voting, will be voting, are refraining from voting - and many of us, I think, are really wondering what's going to happen.

I personally have voted early, and I was writing a blog which is probably going to become a series of blogs, and I realized...

Wow... Tomorrow may be a day in history.

No matter what the outcome, will this election cycle, this decade, this section of time be a focus of future study? Yeah, probably.

Aren't we lucky?

Often people say, in movies and books - "how do you want to be remembered?" "How do you want history to write about you?"

But the thing is, history is just what happened two minutes ago. Remembered or not. And history - which has the word "story" in it - is always going to be someone's perception...
 someone's opinion of their perception...
someone's opinion of their perception of their memory of what is going on right this minute.

So what else can we do but be ourselves? To the best of our ability.

Every single day.

Whether it feels like it's going to be an historic day or not.

So to everyone who is living, doing their thing, dancing and playing and singing...
To everyone who has voted or not as their truth leads them and then GONE ON to the rest of their day...
To everyone who is alive at this time - thank you for being you! Keep doing that. Let historians write about that! "On this amazing day, as the world changed around then, millions of people - lived."

I hope you have a great day!
