    Health is often taken for granted. Most times it is not worth the trade off. I really want to be able to take better care of my health.

    My work since covid has had many “virtual learning events”. One in the past few months was about Transvestite/Cross dressing. I have to say I definitely have more of an understanding and different perspective after the presentation. I was one of those college students back in l980’s that went to see the “Rocky Horror picture show” with knowing absolutely nothing about it and was horrified!!

    After seeing the short documentary “Stranger at the Gate”, I have an even deeper respect for many of our fellow American Muslims. In this story the members of the mosque in a midwestern town put their faith into practice in a powerful way. Humbling for me to watch.
    I recommend it highly. A New Yorker documentary and one of this year’s “Oscar nominated short documentary” films. Also available on for free online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPbbl1S6foM

      Thank you for sharing Maeve! That was very humbling.

    I do lots of renovation projects in my workshop. The other day I realized a project I had been neglecting for a very long time was the renovation of my heart. It is time to start that project.

    To be at peace with myself by not letting all the atrocities going on be my going following. I can care about them but I know that that there are things that i cannot control. Being a « worry wart » or being in discussion with others who have opposite views than me wont solve things. My personal mental health is more important.

    More like “new again”: I keep relearning the truth that I can’t change someone else’s perspective by talking at them. I know that, I really do, and yet I’ll forget and try to persuade when it would likely be better to listen.
    Separate topic: I have new insights into a family member who is identifying as genderqueer. They did something a while back that I thought was meant to be playful or humorous when it was a test of how I would respond to them with a different gender presentation. Fortunately, they felt comfortable raising this so we could talk it through and I apologized. I’m learning some things about how I do and don’t perceive things the same way someone else would and miss cues at times, which has me thinking about my neuro patterns in new ways. At 60 years old I thought I knew how my mind worked, but I keep learning new things about it.

    Hmmm, I don’t think anything new
    has opened up for me lately.
    I am exposed to other people’s
    perspectives whenever I can ask
    a few questions and hear about
    their experiences. I have certainly
    had big perspective shifts in my
    life, but nothing lately. This question
    has me a bit stumped. I’m curious
    to read the other responses and
    experience your perspectives 😁

    every person is unique therefor their path in life must also be unique, there is a sharing of within generalities that is important for connection and safety and expansion of capacities, at our best we are happy for others and wish them well on their journeys

    I can’t say that it’s a new perspective but the awareness that some of my old life-limiting messages have reared their heads has made me more mindful of the importance of monitoring my thoughts.

    changing the 40 hr work week to a 32 hr one, apparently there is a House Bill for this. 4:3 is more balanced then the 5:2 work week. I sure hope this doesn’t continue to sit in the House and that it passes … has a lot of good points to it. [H.R.4728 – Thirty-Two Hour Workweek Act]

    Nothing really new just more aware.

    What I’ve noticed lately is additional aspects of patience. I don’t consider them new because patience — in all of its many forms — is an ongoing lesson for me. Lately it’s been patience with my body as it continues to heal from surgery.

      I can relate Laura. At this age, it seems like another one looms before you are fully healed from the first one. Just be thankful for each day right?

    I am an old man who has known many troubles in my life, most of which never came to pass. Attributed to Mark Twain

    Most things I have been monkey minded about in my life have eventually worked out. Practicing living in the present and gratitude for the day I have, today……….I have known fewer troubles.

    Life is not what happens to you, it’s how you react to what happens to you.
