“Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand.”—Aldous Huxley
“ Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by God or that specific software was coded by him.
Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98. Could anything —anything — be more ridiculous? And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the world we are living in. ”
Sam Harris—author of “Letter to a Christian Nation”
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.” - Steve Jobs

this week another report again confirmed that 98% of scientists say climate change is not only real but is being driven by human actions. imagine if 98 out of 100 doctors told you you have diabetes and had all the evidence to back it up and the 2 doctors that told you you don’t have it are funded primarily by the fast food industry and have zero evidence. now imagine if who you decided to listen to not only had implications for yourself but for the entire population of the planet… this week the concentration of climate warming carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has passed the milestone level of 400 parts per million (ppm).. also this week 4 republicans called climate change a “hoax,” 2 of them on the committee that makes decisions for us all…. and guess who funds their campaigns… its incredibly baffling and ultimately sad that not only do they have a voice but a platform to prohibit legislation… all this talk of “scandals” and this isn’t even mentioned…. maybe i need to break out the websters dictionary and reevaluate the definition of a scandal…
note to self: vulnerability, compassion and empathy = strength and confidence. that doesn’t mean be soft. it means be honest and see the similarities before the differences. it helps.
