What’s Next?

As warmer weather finally arrives across the USA and vacation season begins, expect Americans to pay less attention to the news and more attention to the way the country is actually functioning right now. 

People will discover a new feeling of optimism and possibilities. They will notice more smiles on the faces they see in restaurants, on subways, and walking down the street. 

With relief from the constant drumbeat of negativity on TV and podcasts, people will become even more enthusiastic. You might find yourself asking, “what if Trump was right all along?”

And the upward spiral of optimism and possibility will spring forward. 

It’s morning in America again.
