An idea worth spreading

It takes two seconds to CARE ( usage: feel concern or interest; attach importance to something, to care about humanity). Every action has a reaction or impact on a person's life.

My TED story

In 2007, I was in a potential life ending car accident. I was a passenger in a vehicle that had just left DFW airport en route to my home. My home was only nine minutes away from the airport.

Afterwards, I realized that my life trajectory had changed forever. It was a wake-up call from the universe to not only live life to the fullest, but to pay attention to everything…

In my day-to-day life, I see firsthand the positive ripple effect of being my authentic self, being genuine, the impact of caring about others, and the gift of learning from every person you encounter (whether good or bad). One day, I hope to be a TED speaker to share my insight on “it takes two seconds to CARE.”

Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability
Brene Brown was mentioned on a talk show (SiriusXM) that I was listening to this morning. This talk is great and I wish it was longer. Section 16:20 was interesting because it mentioned how you cannot just numb (emotions/feelings) sections of your life. The pretending/perfection comments were spot-on. Hopefully, more people will strive to be authentic/real in their lives.

Is it possible to screen patients for their own obstacles to wellness?
Is it possible? Yes, anything is possible. This idea is akin to artificial intelligence for the Health & Wellness industry. People are like snowflakes - no two are 100% alike - so the solution would have to be customizable and highly adaptable to the changing needs of the body. I agree with Nick Edward regarding "human genome mapping."
