The Daily Shift: It’s Not What You Think. It’s Better Than That by Beca Lewis. Does your life keep going on the same way, sometimes getting a little better, but not really fulfilling your dreams? Or, perhaps in spite of all your best efforts, life is getting harder. To change your life, you try many ideas about how to fix it. Some work for a brief time, others don’t work at all. We all know that perception is reality. This means that in order for life to change for the better, permanently, our perception has to expand into a different way of thinking. We know that in order to change our life, we must think differently. Good shifts happen, because we shift our behavior and habits. However, that isn’t enough, because we can only change within, and what, we currently perceive of as reality.
Fleeing The Jurisdiction by Gerald Hansen. It’s danger on the high seas for the Barnetts, but will it come from the authorities, Mother Nature or family Flood? In Wisconsin six years ago, Ursula Barnett accidentally defrauded her local church of thousands. The statute of limitations is inching closer, and the police are circling in. Panicked, Ursula books herself and her American family passage on a budget centennial Titanic cruise, hoping to ride out the investigation and embark a woman redeemed. But lurking amongst the leaky walls of the Queen of Crabs is a danger worse than disgruntled, poorly-paid staff, bad food and terrifying onshore excursions: her Irish family, still resentful of the Barnett’s lottery win years earlier.
