Today is not your typical day if you're an American. The 2016 presidential election is finally over and we will have a new president come January 2017. For many people in the country this is an exciting win and for many others, it's a devastating loss.
Regardless of your political stance and opinions, this was a surprise win. When I woke up this morning I could already feel the heaviness in the air. A collective energy that permeates the country, maybe the world.
There's a message I wanted to share with all of you whether you're pleased with the outcome or not. Yes, the president has power along with the rest of the government, but there are more of us than there are of them. We have so much more power than we realize.
Let's not sit back and let a handful of people dictate our future. We have to stand up, sometimes with a stand-alone spirit and claim the power we have. Because I think you are president and I am president. We're all president. Every day we cast our vote by how we consume, the conversations we engage in, the way we conduct ourselves at home and in society. Those small acts accumulate and impact the world in a huge way, even if you don't realize it.
Whatever you are passionate about and whatever changes you want to see, you have to take charge. After all, you are the author and the protagonist of your story. Let's all become leaders where we are right now, reveal our greatest potential, and truly help others do the same. That is how we make America great, that is how we make the world great.
