Negative thoughts stick to the brain instantly. Positive thoughts require at least 15 seconds to imprint. Contemplation of the good is required for a positive rewiring of our brains. Featuring a conversation between Rob Bell of The Robcast and Father Richard Rohr. #YMH5

Self-Growth is easier when we project ourselves into our future and connect our present self with that version. What we are doing now determines what that future self will look like. Are you becoming who you want to be? #YMH5

We gain self-control through practicing moderation. Just try something different and see how you feel about it afterwards. Ask, "Who am I becoming." You can only control yourself. That is the biggest gift you can give others and your country. #YMH5

"Never compare your beginning with someone else's middle." When we compare, we get stuck on someone else's success and lose focus on our own personal self-growth, which is the antidote to comparison. #YMH5

When we try to over-control, we often lose a healthy balance of control. Sometimes giving up control is the thing we need to do to regain it. #YMH5

Resentment becomes unhealthy when not addressed. We carry around this weight that begins to cause damage on our mental health. Riding unaddressed resentment takes grieving the loss of this thing that served us. #YMH5

Trust is slowly built on over time and deserves the weight it has gained through its history of being built, so it does not topple like a Jenga tower. In a sense, trust the trust. #YMH5

Sometimes we assume we have the whole story. All we really can have is our own perspective, which often is not the whole story. Allowing for more perspectives enables us to get to the truth. #YMH5

Cory J. Nichols tells us we are capable of more than we realize. Sometimes what we believe is our limit is the very thing that keeps us from reaching what we are truly capable of. #YMH5

Are Spirituality and Religion separate things? Whether and whatever we believe in God or not, can we lean into and have spiritual experiences. I don't know, but here are my thoughts so far. #YMH5

Emily Khoo takes us through her definition of success. Success can be defined best when we answer the question: "Who do I want to become?" Find fulfillment not in resume virtues but in eulogy virtues. #YMH5

A white cop found shared empathy in a black lady and her two kids amidst racial unrest in this beautiful story that was shared on Facebook. "You simply cannot judge an entire group of people based on the actions of some. Don't hate evil more than you love good." #YMH5

The sins of our past begs us to answer the question why? Sometimes current events bring that question back up. There is wisdom in sitting in the "Why?" and not answering it. Let's be quick to listen to the perspectives of all races. #YMH5

In this special edition week of YMH5, we look in this episode 2 of 3 at empathy as both action and emotion that allows us to align our pain with the pain of others. Though the pain may be different, we choose to do the hard work of finding similarities. Join in the pain and help heal this hurting world! #YMH5

We do better when we choose to see the big picture rather than over-generalizing. Westboro Baptist Church doesn't have a say on my beliefs. Neither do the few misrepresenting your race, cause, or job. See the good in people rather than differences! #YMH5
