Am I the only one who thought they found the Higgs bosom? I’ve been looking for my own for years. I had a hunch I was a 36-D all along and not a 36-AA. I could have sworn it was somewhere inside me…if only I had the right machinery to discover it.
But what it proves is that we have to follow our hunches. According to a New York Times article, scientists have been searching for this, the Higgs boson, because it is the basis of all modern physics, but “its existence has eluded scientists for 40 years.” They thought it was out there…and they didn’t give up.
In our own lives, we have to trust what we sense is true and hold fast to that belief. That is the key to our transformation.
Tool for Tuesday: believe in what you believe in no matter what anyone else says. And don’t give up searching for it.

I love reading your posts. You always say what I need to hear and remind me what I need to practice in my own life. I need a handy little reference book with all of your Tools in it.
Thanks, Amy! I hope to gather the tools into a book soon!
