Beach Walk 733 – Numbers Have Energy

Our car is 6.5 yrs old but has only 40,000 miles (eh – living on an island!) I have way more miles in my frequent flier accounts than the odometer of the Ford Escape.

Statistics can prove anything. Old Thinking: That’s bad! New Thinking: Use math to my advantage, to help me feel better, so I become untethered to what is holding me back.

Not to lie or manipulate per se, but to use .5 as half full, OR half empty. Both are true. Which interpretation feels better for me for now?

I personally value emptiness as much as fullness – it all depends on the situation.

Hawaiian word:
Helu: number, counting

Beach Walk 653 – Risk: Math v Emotion

Recently a mom in NYC (writer Lenore Skenazy) allowed her nine-year-old son to take a subway ride by himself.

Read Lenore Skenazy’s original article in the New York Sun.
Watch a video from the Today Show with Lenore and her son Izzy.
