Here is my intention. I will approach the 2016 election cycle with the mindset I adopted when approaching chemo for breast cancer. Existential threats are inherent in both campaigns. The only thing I have any hope of controlling is myself - the way I conduct myself, my attitude, the aura I project.
I will try to stay extremely focused on the job at hand. I will not complain or become emotional. My stoic personality will take charge. I will be the calm center of my own existence.
