Who We Are – What We Value

The 2016 Presidential election is now over. It was a long haul for candidates, consultants and constituents. For some of you, it was your first opportunity to vote in a national election. The rest of you will have to wait four years, and I hope that the next round is a little less messy.

The data show that 70% of the American electorate was stressed out by this campaign. I am not surprised. It even caused a few loud discussions in my own house, a place where we are usually unified. The candidates’ shouting and finger pointing did little to bring us together to focus on what is important. The daily misinformation and conspiracy theories added no value to the national debate.

But the bottom line is this – we are not defined in total by our voting choices. After all, we are influenced by many factors when it comes to casting a vote and no candidate is perfect 100% of the time. What is more important is how we choose to live our life. Who we connect with, how and why our paths cross, the daily behaviors we adopt – says a lot more about us as individuals and as a community.

SkyWell is about wellness, and it’s also about connections. As you finish your education in high school and begin the next step in your career or college pursuits, it will become perfectly clear that who you are and what you value is more about positive connections and the impact you make on those around you.

So don’t be sad or celebrate about the presidential race for too long. Instead, go out and make a great connection today!
