Deflect the weird. Spread some love.

Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground and I won’t back down…
—Tom Petty

Las Vegas is weird.
The climate is weird.
Trump is weird.
North Korea is weird.
These are not easy times.

So kiss your family.
Hug your friends.
Do something randomly nice for a stranger.
Get outside and breathe.
Appreciate this place…and this space.
Spread some light.

Most important in these weird times, remember to try to live a life that radiates love. Do not be cowed into living a life filled with fear and anger—no matter how weird it seems. And it seems pretty weird right now.

So hug your friends, kiss your family and tell the people in your world that you love them.

—Mark Reaman
