Do You Have A Voting Day Plan?

We are just a few weeks out from the election, and as someone who needs plans to move through life a bit, I wanted to hear about yours! These days, plans seem like big lessons in letting go. But if my body and mind knows it needs to show up in a certain way at a certain time, my day goes all the more smooth and I can be more open to the way it unfolds in and out of those plans. 

Here’s my plan:

+ I want to wake up that morning, play oldies and make pancakes with the kids. I want to be as intentional as possible. So that also includes meditating and steering away from the news.

+ I am training to be a poll worker, so if that finishes out well, I’ll get dressed for a long and comfortable day (I love Erin’s, make believe here), after making sure I vote!

+ I am hoping for pizza and wine on the stoop for dinner with a friend. I’ll be too nerve-wracked to do bedtime (if I’m being honest), so I plan to have the night off from that end of things.

+ After dinner and wine on the stoop I want to watch the news with my sister on FaceTime, for however long we can manage.

My overall goal for the day is intention, strength, and community. I also promised myself it will be okay if all or nothing goes as planned. It’s life right now! If you have any plans, I’d love to hear!

    That sounds like a good plan! I am voting early in person on 10/25. We actually rented a house upstate for the first week of November. It will be the first time my family has left the city since March. I’ll still need a plan to stay calm on election day even though we’ll be away surrounded by pretty leaves!

      Hi Christine!
      I love that you’re voting early and that you’ll be supported by nature! That seems like a good trick to stay calm! And maybe a hike?

      I think figuriing out a way where you can be held (that day and a few days after… no matter what happens!) will be so good for the soul!

    I’ll be voting absentee here in Michigan. I’ve heard many people are against that or discourage doing it but for personal reasons that’s the only way I can this year. On a separate note I want to say your writing, no matter the topic, is so beautifully done. When I read it, it literally touches my soul, gives me all the feels, takes me to another place! Anyways, I’m not a writer but that’s the best way to describe reading yours! Much love! Xxx
