Paradigm Shift 

Pin It

What's been your latest--or most profound--paradigm shift?

Heidi Weggeland: It’s not what happens to us that matters. It’s how we chose to respond. You can respond with anger, or you can respond with grace.

Ted Scheffler: One word: Twitter

Julie Erickson: Learning the existence of religions other than Mormonism. Oh, and the Prophet and the President of the United States are two separate “callings.”

Derek Jones: Buying a new fixer-upper home. Wow. What a process and a lot of work. I have newfound admiration/ respect for construction professionals.

Nick Clark: The thinner you are, the longer you live.

Jesse Fruhwirth: Reading the The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, edited by founding father Thomas Jefferson, prompted me to identify as a Christian for the first time in my adult life.

Lia Pretorius: Stop enabling and let accountability fall where it may. It’s a tough thing to do when the stakes feel high, but holding yourself back by helping others who won’t help themselves doesn’t help anyone.

Jeremiah Smith: I have honestly been trying to see the beer glass half full instead of half empty lately. Seems like if the beer glass is half full then there is less reason to order another. I can then see straight longer.

Lara Grant: Recently my whole life turned upside down, and at the same moment I realized I must go back to Burning Man this year—despite being totally broke and having less than six weeks to prepare. Does that count?
