I'm going to write a speech by the same name so check back in the members area. I create goals throughout the year, because things change but I definitely use the beginning of every year as a time to reflect and potentially reset. I wish you all the best for the coming year and remember this, every day we wake is a precious gift. Treat every second as gold and every interactions like a diamond.
A fellow follower of Jesus and brother shared this video. I've heard this song countless times, but it felt and sounded different today. I'm thankful that I live in a time in which I can hear news instantly from anywhere in the world. On some days, this can feel like a ponderous responsibility. I feel the real tension. My gut twists as we hear news about strife close and thousands of miles away. What can I do? My belief is that God's instruction are pretty clear. Loving everyone and everything on this globe is the paramount charge of my life. I mean love by action. A kind word, praying with a friend, and living authentic moments are some of my actions within my control. It's hard. I and maybe you wish to quantify every moment. What did I get? I hear this so many times without the words being uttered.
Take solace, that the action of love may be the only opportunity we have at this moment. I have to acknowledge the energy of selfishness, scarcity, and worry that crops up each day in my heart. I won''t divorce myself from the world. I will find moments to lean in. Lean into love, hope, and possibilities. What do you think?
You are a masterpiece.
I'm asking for a friend.:-). Some times I have to slow down to speed up. I still have moments of intense fear. I don't know why. I have a plan and a goal for every aspect of life. When this happens, I lean into what's important. More acutely, who is important. I've made a bold decision to place everything I've ever done on this site. All the videos, articles, andcreativity throughout my life will be here. They will be here for free. I'll curate them, but I believe whatever I've ever done, is not mine. God and the universe gave me a gift and I owe it to the whole world to give it. All I ask is that you become a member, so I can hopefully be engaged and intimate with how I can help you. I do feel my calling is to pour into you everything I can. I will do it. From this to my last day on this plane of existence.
Growing up I was teased incessantly about the size of my head. I know all kids are bullied, but my head attacks were on another level. There was some credence to this, because when I needed to get Football helmet (my town had a finite number of helmets), my dad took me to a specialty sports shop in Rockville Centre, New York. The amount of the helmet was over ninety dollars. My Dad didn't hesitate to make the purchase. I get emotional when I think about it. Those that know my dad, he is always aware of his money. It was an intimidating helmet with a real face cage. I got curious and did some research. I wondered if there was any benefit to my head. I found a few that I've listed below. What do you think?
While brain size is not the only factor in determining intelligence, studies have shown that there is a correlation between head size and IQ. People with larger heads tend to have larger brains, which may mean they have more cognitive abilities and higher IQ scores.
The inner ear, which plays a critical role in maintaining balance, is in the skull. A larger head may mean a larger and more developed inner ear, leading to better balance and stability. This is definitely not me.
A larger head means more space for the brain to develop and grow. This additional space may allow for increased creativity and problem-solving skills, as there is more room for new ideas to form and take shape.
While no one wants to think about head injuries, they do happen. However, studies have shown that people with larger heads are less likely to suffer from brain damage due to the extra space and cushioning that the skull provides.
Some studies have suggested that people with larger heads may live longer than those with smaller heads. This may be due to a variety of factors, including increased intelligence, better balance, and resilience to injury.
While having a big head may come with its own set of challenges, it's important to remember that there are also many benefits. So, the next time you feel self-conscious about your (my) head size, try to focus on the positive aspects and embrace your unique characteristics. After all, your big head may be your ticket to a better, smarter, and longer life.
Whatever someone tells you that there is something wrong with you, realize there may be benefits slash superpowers with that thing. Love your life, ALL of it.
