Light a Fire

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the Olympics.

In addition to being amazed by our athletes (Go USA!) and shocked at our commercials (are you freakin’ kidding me?), I was amused by this:

If you can relate, as I’m sure many of us can, consider this a reminder to put down your phone and go do something fun this weekend! Take a hike, go to the beach, take the dog to a park…whatever means summer for you, go enjoy it before it’s gone. And that means getting your face out of your phone.

As for the commercials, if you haven’t heard me talking about this yet, please join me in signing this petition to urge broadcasters to change the sponsors for the biggest display of athleticism in the world.


Somehow, telling us (kids, especially) to sit around drinking soda and eating McDonald’s while watching athletes in peak performance break world records just doesn’t jive for me. I wish lighting that Olympic torch meant lighting a fire under this country’s butt to get more active.

Question of the Day:
What’s your favorite Olympic event? I love beach volleyball! Congrats Kerri and Misty!!

Friday Fun, vol. 3

Happy Friday!

No doubt you’ve worked your butt off this week  – I know I have! Whew!

So now there’s one thing you need to do before you head into the weekend. It’s something we just don’t do enough. But it’s important. And now you’ve got orders from me to do it:


That’s right. You deserve it.

Life is short. And too many people spend too much time thinking about the things that are wrong, and all the many ways in which they aren’t good enough.

You’re awesome. Acknowledge and embrace it.

Go be awesome and have a great weekend!

A Fab Find

Happy Friday, Everyone!

You may have noticed I took a little hiatus from the blog this week. There was some big stuff going on and not enough time for blogging. I missed you all, though. And that’s the truth.

And to prove it, I thought of you when I came across this on Wednesday:

How great is that? A whole cabinet full of inspirational signs. I loved them all and couldn’t choose just one to buy so I took a picture of the whole cabinet!

Wednesday was an incredible day. And this was an awesome find.

So have a wonderful weekend. I urge you to seek out a special little moment or two. Savor the small things. Embrace the unexpected.

Question of the Day:
Which one of these quotes hits home most for you?

Week of Pictures – Day 5

Friday! It’s here!

Oh, we’ve all been there.

If you’re planning to get out and enjoy the nice weather this weekend, great idea! We all need more Vitamin D.

Did you know Vitamin D deficiency is a major health concern these days? It’s linked to a number of health issues. You can read more about it here. It doesn’t help that most of us are inside all day on our computers.

So getting out and getting some natural rays is great. But just make sure you don’t burn.

My favorite sunscreen?

Mychelle Sun Shield. No nasty chemicals. Just a safe sunscreen that doesn’t go on weird and leave your skin looking white and pasty.

Enjoy your weekend and be safe!

Week of Pictures – Day 4

We’ve all heard the old saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.”

It’s true!

Happiness is an integral part of health. Health isn’t just about how much we exercise and what we eat, although those are important. Health includes the downtime and the fun time, too.

I’ve been trying to hammer this one home for a while now.

(The Benefits of Laughter table comes from this article. Read it. It’s great! And less blurry!)

So grab a buddy. Get a giggle going. And choose to believe you’re the funniest people in the world.

So now I ask…
What’s the funniest thing that happened to you this week?
