We’ve had seven months now to get used to the new normal between the pandemic, life in quarantine, the mask debate, civil unrest, the kids at home, working remotely or trying to work remotely or not working remotely. The economy is shifting. The election is coming up and the news is constantly telling us it is the worst of times.

What the hell is normal, and how do we cope with a life that is so far from normal, let alone thrive?

We are now 15 days removed from the national elections and I have very mixed emotions of where we are as a nation.

On one hand, I am openly happy and relieved in the knowledge that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as President and Vice President on January 20, 2021.  On the other hand a not so secret hard truth was also laid bare on Tuesday, November 3rd,…… this country has a very long way to go.
