For eight years, we have looked up to the First Lady for her wisdom, poise, and unending kindness. We will be sad to see her leave, but we wish her all the most incredible things for the future. In an interview with People Magazine, Michelle Obama revealed what she did on election night when Donald Trump was elected. And in classic Michelle fashion, her answer is nothing but positive. While many have been upset by the results of the election, Michelle offers a calmness and acceptance that reminds us why she’s so incredibly awesome.

Check out First Lady Michelle Obama’s words here:

When asked what she did on election night, Michelle said, “I went to bed.” And we don’t blame her!

We are so impressed by Michelle’s dignified response. We could learn a lot from her courage and positivity.

We find it inspiring that Michelle trusts our democracy, even at a time when many people have questioned it. Michelle famously encouraged us to stay classy during a tough election. She said, “When they go low, we go high.” And she’s clearly sticking to that. Michelle told People that she got to say everything she wanted to say during the election. “And I stand by that,” she said. She and Barack’s job now is to make the transition as easy as possible for the new administration.

She is so optimistic, and we love that. We are so going to miss this incredible lady when she leaves the White House.

Thank you, Michelle, for being an amazing First Lady that we all admire.
