Don’t Boo, Vote!

With election day still reverberating through the nation, I have a quick story to share with you. Late last week, President Obama was here in Portland to speak and stump for one of the candidates for governor and I got to go. It was fun and a neat spectacle to see the president in person. During his speech, when he made some comments about the other candidate, many in the crowd let out passionate boos. Instantly, President Obama, responded: “Don’t boo, vote!” He meant it. Action speaks louder than words.

Do you sometimes speak passionately about how you want to live? About how committed you are to your wellness? To good exercise? To good nutrition? But then come up a bit short on action? We’ve all been there in certain areas of our life at different times. It can feel productive to voice our opinion an views. But to live the life we want to live we must take action. “Don’t boo, vote!”
