plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose
I was in Belfast the morning of the Brexit result.
Here I am in Belfast again this morning, visiting the same practice – the lovely folks at Creative Smiles.
Me being here clearly isn’t good for world history. Soz.
What do you and I do in these circumstances?
I can imagine that social media, the media, this world we live in – will resoundingly comment on how happy or petrified they are by what Americans are voting for.
Blah, blah, blah……
If you want modern democracy, you have to be prepared to accept the vote, no matter what.
Here’s what I’m going to do.
go for a run by the side of The Lagan in the cold and dark
go to work and give it my best shot
make sure my business makes a profit by solving other people’s problems in a good way
keep a close eye on my personal/professional balance
love my woman and my kids and walk the dogs
love what I do, when I do it and the people I do it with
appreciate my support team
be thankful for my body, mind and spirit and for the lucky accident that had me living in my country in the times I do
read great literature, watch great TV, enjoy good food and drink
laugh at myself and at the world
It’s just another day – let’s get on with it shall we?
