Friday the 13th

In western culture, the number 13 is considered to represent bad luck. The “cursed” number takes its reputation from Norse mythology.

Luck doesn’t really exist except in our minds. If luck was real then life would be a series of random events. I believe there is a Divine Order to our lives that is bigger than anything we can understand.

Embrace everything that happens to you in life, even the bad stuff. When you accept that there is no randomness, only structure, it makes the bad things easier to navigate. A little easier, anyway…

Seek Help

We are independent, aren’t we? Self-sufficiency is a sign that you’ve “made it.”

Yet the struggles of daily life remain. Sometimes the challenges we face may seem insurmountable. We try to face it alone because we’re capable of taking care of ourselves.

There may be times when we need help. There’s no shame in seeking someone to come alongside you to help you through a difficult period. In fact, it demonstrates strength to know when you need others.

You are not alone, unless you choose to be…

Weariness

Life can wear you out. Combine the noise from the outside world, the conversations we have with ourselves and the daily grind, people can get worn down and worn out.

It’s important that we take care of ourselves mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. You must focus on all four of these areas to maintain a peaceful spirit. When we do this, we are the best version of ourselves. Everyone benefits, especially you…

Diversity

Recently I was asked what I thought about diversity. Here’s what I believe: you can have ten people with the same skin color sitting in a conference room and have a diverse crowd. Everyone at that table has different thoughts, experiences, beliefs, convictions and hang ups. Isn’t that diversity?

We must stop looking at the outside of others and consider what’s going on inside. The inside is where diversity comes from…

Think Differently

Today, Elon Musk is a constant news item. People like Musk, Einstein and many others see the world through a different lens.

We have the same ability. When you think of any situation, see it from different perspectives. Ask yourself, “what if we tried it this way?” Your mind will expand and your worldview will be enhanced…

Science

Nowadays it seems that everyone is a “scientist.” During the pandemic, we continually heard “follow the science.” That’s easier said than done.

Science changes. Viruses mutate. What I love about science is that there are no definitive answers, only more questions. For a curious soul like myself, this feeds my sense of curiosity.

Science is a great reminder for us to question everything. Don’t believe everything you hear on TV, and question everything that comes out of a politician’s mouth. God gave us an incredible gift called our minds. Follow and believe His word, and question everything else!

Keep Going…

We live in an imperfect world, where failures, frustrations and setbacks come our way. It seems like every time we get our lives together we only get knocked down again.

That’s okay. No matter what you see on social media, everyone has struggles. The most perfect-looking people are dealing with stuff we don’t know about. It’s important to remember, we are in this beautiful life together. Encourage others. Strengthen them. And when you find yourself in a battle, keep going, no matter what…
