 “The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour,
whatever he does, whoever he is.”

- C.S. Lewis
It's 2-2-22 today.

I saw a cool idea [thank you Facebook] which was to create a time capsule today and then open it on 3-3-33. I love this idea! I know the ground is frozen so don't think you have to bury your capsule. Simply toss in a closet, place on a basement shelf, or under your bed for safe keeping. Scroll your phone 4,047 days out and set a reminder to open said capsule. Done!

Let's think about how different the world was 4,047 days ago! It was January 4th, 2011.

During 2011...
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 was most popular.
Osama Bin Laden passed away.
President Obama released his birth cert. confirming his birth in HI.
Google+ was launched.
Chromebooks went on sale.
Snapchat was founded.
Facebook had over 600 million users.
Americans spent an average of 2.7 hours online.
The King's Speech won an Oscar.
The last Oprah Winfrey Show was broadcast.
The Green Bay Packers were the Super Bowl Champs!
Most Popular TV: Sunday Night Football, NCIS, American Idol
Brussel Sprouts became a popular food trend.
Inflation rate was 3.16%
Minimum wage was $7.25
Average life expectancy 78.64 years
Android 3.0 released
Microsoft launched Explorer 9
Microsoft introduced Office 365
Apple introduced iPhone 4S.
Kindle Fire launched.

It's 2022 and we now have cars that drive themselves! Whaaaat?! What will another 4,047 days bring? Mark this date in history! Write a love letter to yourself! Print out todays global fact sheet and save it in a canister placed somewhere to collect dust for the next 11 years! Or do nothing. These are just a few of your options for today! Honestly, I'll probably get busy and forget about a time capsule.
Disclaimer: It's a fun idea for tomorrow too!

Have a terrific week and don't forget to make a difference!

No one wants pain, but many people are affected by it. Chronic pain is one of the top
reasons people go to the doctor. In fact, more people are affected by chronic pain than
diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer combined. Pain that continues after healing
or longer than expected is called chronic pain.
