You know how when you get a new car, suddenly you see that car everywhere? Or your friend is thinking about purchasing [insert car], so you find yourself noticing them in parking lots and driveways. Is it because suddenly the roads are more populated with exactly [insert car model] or is it just that you’re now more attuned?
I think the universe is made up of themes that we tune into periodically. (Thanks, Carl Jung). When we pay attention, the themes jump out like getting hit over the head with a 2×4. Sometimes the themes are deep and meaningful, thought-induction and action inspiring. And sometimes they’re just a reflection of pop culture.
Two themes in my orbit this week:
1. Marriage and Relationships
