Intuition, Gut Feelings, and Faith in the Unknown | The Hubble Telescope

What do you think about the concepts of faith and intuition?  Do you trust your intuition?  Or do you override your gut feelings?  Do you refuse to have faith in that which you can not see with your own eyes?  Are you often afraid of the unknown, or the unpredictable?  Most of us answer yes to the latter questions at some point in our lives (and some answer yes their entire lives).

In 1996, astronomers made a risky decision and decided to point the Hubble telescope, the most powerful telescope ever created by humans, at an empty patch of sky.  At that time, this was a boring, dark area of the solar system which presumably contained nothing.  It was dark and empty.  Using such a powerful piece of technology for DAYS at a time to view nothing at all was a brave decision.  After all, why waste such precious technology on nothing?  There were more vast areas of the universe to explore.

How is Your Thyroid Doing?

I have written about thyroid health numerous times here in the past, including articles about the importance of getting a comprehensive thyroid test and the numerous problems your thyroid can mimic.  I have even written about the fact that broccoli can slow down your thyroid gland when eaten in larger quantities.  This time, however, it’s personal.

This summer, I got really tired.  Not the type of tired you might feel after, say, an all nighter or a monster workout.  I’m talking about the kind of tired that two Venti Starbucks a day can’t fix……bone ass, drag-yourself-through-the-day kind of tired.  At first, I thought maybe the summer heat was leaving me feeling drained and lethargic.  Then, I began to wonder if something was really wrong with me.  I kept thinking I was fighting something and always hit a wall around 3pm in the afternoon.  I had trouble doing CrossFit and decided to take a break for awhile.  It gets tough to do an intense WOD when you don’t even have the energy to get through the normal daily routines.
