I've been thinking a lot about how much time and energy we spend doing our best to take in better food, make more time to exercise and caring about what we put into our BODIES...

I heard from my good friend J today that she was really struggling with some things in her life. She wrote to say, "Honestly I'm not doing too well right now. I'm super stressed and overwhelmed....and broke. I'll be fine. It's just tough right now. There are so many things to get done and figure out how to do. I'm working through it...but the past few days I have not been working through it gracefully, that's for sure." Life is so hard sometimes. This is what friends are for, and what I'm … [Read more...]
