When One Door Closes, Another One Opens (I Hope)

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about an unexpected curve-ball.

The curve-ball was confirmed yesterday. While I won’t go into details, I will say that the curve-ball was not as shocking as I thought it would be.

It has been said that when one door closes, another opens. I hope that is the case.

Change is scary, period. I don’t know about anyone else, but I thrive on the familiar and the comfortable. I need that schedule and that routine to get me through the day. But the reality is that we don’t grow until we step out of our comfort zone.

I am a believer in fate, that everything happens for a reason. I also know the value of hard work.

This curve-ball creates an opportunity. Though to be honest, the curve-ball is anxiety inducing, I know that I will come out of this stronger and better than I was before.

It’s Just Melatonin

I’ve been thinking about the events that have hit Americans hard this week.

The problem is that we cannot see past skin color. It’s just melatonin. It’s simply the color of our skin. By fate, g-d or whatever higher power we believe in (if we do believe in a higher power), we were born with a certain skin color. The problem becomes when we make snap judgments about someone else because of their skin color or another factor.

We are all human beings at the end of the day. Just because someone is different does not automatically make them bad or harmful.

It’s 2016. For all of our advances in science and technology, we have not changed one bit from our ancient ancestors.

That makes me sad and angry.

Happy Saturday.
