Tune Out Chatter, Tune Into Yourself
I loved watching the debate last night with my friends and family. There's obviously much to learn and much to discuss in the coming days.
At the same time, we have to be careful about the constant chatter that is coming at us which tells us what to think and what conclusions to make.
It's important to know what you feel is right and what you think is best, and try not to get swayed and confused by all the outside chatter.
During this political season -- and beyond in your daily life -- try to create a quiet place inside yourself where you can have a conversation with yourself and get clear about what you think and how you feel.
That way, you can tune into your own thoughts, feelings and values and tune out all the noise.
It's never been harder to do this. But in the end, the conversation you have with yourself about your life -- who you want in it, who you want to spend time with and who you want to vote for -- it all belongs to you.
We are a country of values. But first, each one of us has to decide what our own values are and then determine whose vision for the country best reflects them.
