Well, we all made it through the election, alive!
Like you, we spent a good many hours this week with our eye watching the polls and wondering who would be the next president-elect of the United States of America.
Regardless of who you voted for, having the election done is a relief on many levels and possibly creating new feelings of uncertainty and hope on many more.
It’s easy to get lost in fear and wonderment of what will happen, how will things work out.
I’m personally wondering if I’ll be able to legally use the restroom without going to jail. 😉 Going to the bathroom is such a simple basic thing and yet as a transman, it’s something I worry about each day when out in public.
On another note, Tiff and I have been jumping onto facebook live and sharing a message of hope and happiness each day. It’s so funny when we are going on “live” because once you get the 3.. 2.. 1.., you know that there’s no going back and you have to put yourself out there no matter what. Jeez! Why do we do this to ourselves?? We do it because we are here to make a difference, and we just won’t be stopped, no matter what.
Yesterday, post-election, we knew there were some important words to share. We did, and our live video has gotten over 1,200 views and is still climbing…this makes us so damn happy! We’ve heard back from so many people telling us what a difference it has made for them.
When we hear that something we’ve shared gives you a lift or makes you feel better…it’s the fuel for our passion and we keep going! So thank you for that.
Here’s the LIVE video we did yesterday on facebook:
Of course when I was talking about loving each other I had to cry because I always cry when I talk about love, it’s just something that happens and there’s no stopping it. I’m a softy. My dad and brothers are all this way too.
Remember, who we voted for doesn’t define us and doesn’t need to divide us… love is the only thing that matters.
Now go out and share a kind word, smile at someone, or give a hug, or share a kind comment on facebook, as this is what truly makes the world go round.
We’re here for you!
Jack & Tiff
Your Life, Your Way
