Blah

Thanks everyone for the well wishes on the election. Guess there may be things that are bigger and better in my future because I didn't get the majority of the votes. I'm not going to lie, I don't take losing well and often don't give up on things but this time it's different. My experience with this election felt like every time you got a glimmer of hope you realized that it was just the sun reflecting off something.
Trying my hardest to not make this post all BLAH and feel sorry for myself ..because this isn't what I am about, we are looking to our future. When people in town or others come up to me and say they are proud my eyes only water because I don't feel very proud. It hurts my heart to know that people can complain about things but not take a moment to try to make a difference. In a way I feel like my family doesn't belong here. 
So with that being said we are exploring options. Not exactly sure what that is at the moment, whether it's a new career, new scenery, or maybe both. Whatever it is, it's options of a new beginning, a fresh start, and a place to belong.

That's hard stuff- I respect you for being honest with where you are today. I pray that you'll find what your heart is looking for soon. Blessings on you and your family!

You got involved, you made an effort, you do care and, even though you didn't get elected, you will have been listened to and you will have made a difference.
Don't make decisions in haste, listen to your head and your heart then do what is best for you and your family.

I'm always so proud of you. You are an expert at overcoming small minds and jealous hearts. I do not doubt for a second that you will come out a winner. You deserve all that is good.

Never mind Amanda, it wasn't meant to be and as you say there are obviously bigger and better things meant for you.
Don't be hasty though, take time to work it out.
