What does Dr Strange has to do with your marriage?

Here’s a fun question for you. If you can choose to become a superhero of your choice, and you get to choose from any superhero of your choice: superman, wonder woman, anybody you desire. If you can choose to be any one of the superheroes, who would that be?Why do you choose to be this specific superhero? What is the specific superpower or characteristic that specifically appeal to you?Last week I talked about what I did while Andrew was out of town, and this week, I’m going to tell you the other thing that I did while he’s not with me.We like watching movies, but when Andrew is not with me I don’t go out to movies by myself. But I do like to re-watch some good movies. Andy isn’t into watching something that he’s already seen, so watching a movie for the 2nd time is typically something I do by myself.And this time around, the movie that I chose to watch, is Marvel’s Dr. Strange.******There is one common theme that pretty much made most superheroes, and no it’s not money, even though that’s common amongst Batman and Iron Man, and no it’s not alien blood, not all of them are Superman and Wonder woman.What most superheroes have in common, is that they have been through some type of extreme trauma – Batman’s death of his parents, Iron Man’s similar faith, Superman saw his whole planet turned to ashes.All superheroes went through some type of life changing event that pretty ended their life as it is, and began their journey as a superhero.

A man who seemingly has everything we would ever dream to have, a person that we’d all love to be.At the height of his career as a surgeon, due to one, single, careless act, lost control of his Lamborghini, the car fell off the cliff and as a result, he survived, but lost the dexterity of both his left and right hand.And, for a surgeon, a profession that relies heavily on their pair of hands, that makes the end of his career. He can no longer be a surgeon. Heck, he can’t even write legibly. He’s lost all the respect as a doctor, spent most of his money doing a variety of medical procedures that just couldn’t help him get his hands back. That huge sense of loss, drove him into an even worse temper and eventually drove away his girlfriend.And, then, he is left with NOTHING.And that’s a lesson that all of us should learn.In one split second, everything can change.Look, things can go very wrong, very fast, without you being able to react to it. And the price could be very high, monetary and otherwise. Like Dr. Strange, you could lose your money, your career, your relationships, your hopes, and your dreams.And it is your reaction of the situation that…
