What are the odds???

Did you ever wonder how safe we are? What are the odds we could be one of the victims on the evening news? I saw Senator Graham talk about ISIS on the evening news and it was very obvious he thinks the odds are good that terrorism is the end of the story for America . He was very upset and fearful, announcing that if we didn’t attack them that they were coming to kill all of us. Since then  I have heard many people making fearful remarks about terrorist and the danger we all subject too. At the beginning of this school year my daughter a teacher in Montana told me about training,  required to take concerning school shootings. Yesterday as I was  driving to Milwaukee for some stress management training and I wondered with all the cars on the road what are the odds you would die in a car accident?
Here are a few facts for the curious:
1. The odds of dying in a fatal car accident is 1 in 18,585
2 Dying in a school shooting in k-12 is 1 in 53,925  take high school out of the equation and it is 1 in 141,463
3. Dying in a plan crash is 1 in 500,000
4. In the last 5 years your odds as an American killed by a terrorist here or anywhere in the world has been 1 in 20 million.

However
1. 18% of all deaths in America are due to obesity, and 35% are obese!  1/3 of all Americans are over weight which increases your chances of cancer, heart disease and strokes.
2. Cigarettes are responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the US. 41,000 of those deaths are due to 2nd hand smoke. Cigarettes account for 1 in 5 deaths or 1300 deaths every day.
There is nothing I can do about ISIS.  I will leave that to my very brave military nephews and their friends that have chosen that line of work and who are well  trained. Terrorism Wins if we live in fear. That is the point, to terrorise us. Be brave, your odds Senator Graham of dying because of ISIS is 1 in 20 million but there is a 90% chance that you are making yourself sick with the stress your body is under going because of your fear. Be Brave Senator! Stress does kill. The National Institute of health says 90% of all illness is caused by stress. Fear is stress.

Our Dream here at Sky Blue is for people to live mindfully which means in the moment. Our greatest desire is to give you tools to become  strong and brave, living your life healthier and happier. What are the odds of that, 20 million to 1.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and remember YOU ARE BRAVE AND STRONG-YOU ARE GETTING HAPPIER AND HEALTHIER EVERYDAY IN EVERYWAY!!! Joy to all of you from Jane
