What do you stand for?

Some nights, I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights, I call it a draw

For some reason I really love this song. People either hate it or love it. I am the latter. It's the lyrics that I kind of just say, yea, to. 

We all ask the question to ourselves sometimes. What do we stand for?

As we enter the presidential election, I think this is a huge topic. It matters what most you stand for and what matters to you. (PS. I'm not trying to get into a political debate here, it's a fact.)

You might stand more for Pro choice or Pro Life. That makes your decision. Or perhaps you are Pro Big Bird. All of the biggest issues and concerns for you are what you turn to when you are ready to choose your next president. When you are ready to mark your vote. 

But this is something you have to think about when you were watching these presidential debates, watching the anti "this person" commercials and reading all the articles abut what the other ones objectives are. What do you stand for? What direction do you want this country to go in? What are the issues you take a stand against and will not accept a president that supports these?

Or let's just think about everyday life. What do you stand for? 

I stand for social media therefore, freedom of speech, the New York Yankees, etiquette and manners, proper grammar, good friends, good life, wine, for the fact that hard work should be rewarded and not the other option, beef (all kinds), against cancer and utilizing all opportunities to have a dance party.

I think it's important for a person to establish what matters most to them. The things that they will stand for and stand up for in their lives. It helps make them the person they are everyday and gives them a purpose. It drives you to where you go and what you are meant to be doing. It can also drive this country in the right direction. At least, let's hope.

 And you won't get out of me which way I'm going. I do not enter into debates or conflict. Makes me crazy. 

But what is important is knowing what you stand for and making a choice on Tuesday, election day. Exercise your right to vote and have your say in what direction this country is going. Say you will vote. You will have a voice.
