October 15th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I’d rather lie down in a yoga corpse pose than go for a run any day of the week.  But after going for a power walk with a friend recently, something inspired me to try jogging again.  It must have been those endorphins making me feel good about exercising. The last time I jogged was […]

Happiness is like a Cold! Who knew?

May 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Last week was not the best for me – mainly due to some cranky bosses. A well-deserving friend emailed me to let me know that she had gotten engaged, and it totally lifted my day. I even told the story to several other people. (I’m a girl…I spread news faster than Apple sells I-phones). An […]
