Life Is a Bowl of Cherries (So Eat It Up)

meQuilibrium | July 26, 2014 | Healthy Living
Summer fruits and vegetables are the great, immediate, delicious -- and fleeting -- luxury of this season. It would be wonderful to bite into a fresh-off-the-tree juicy peach when February drags on. But seasonal food gives you a chance to savor the present moment, knowing full well it will end.

When I Took Off My Rose-Colored Glasses

Kathleen Buckstaff | July 25, 2014 | GPS for the Soul
I learned a lot from having a rose beside me all week. I made time to see the good in life. I remembered that I have thorns and to use them when needed. And I told myself again and again that it is my job to stand tall in the light.

The Yellow Brick Road of Happiness: It's in the Journey

Prasanna Ranganathan | July 25, 2014 | Healthy Living
What many have discovered, and what I have glimpses of from time to time, is that lasting happiness is virtually impossible when it is tied to arriving at a destination. At the end of the day, it's all in the journey. That is the sweet spot. That is where true happiness lies.

There Is No Right Way, Just Write

Michelle Ghilotti Mandel | July 25, 2014 | Women
To anyone who wants to be in many places at once, write. To everyone who doesn't think they're a "good writer," write. To those wanting to connect to their soul and inner wisdom, write.

Michael Feeley | July 25, 2014 | Healthy Living
Any situation can be turned around or reframed and made into a benefit or an advantage. What do you think has a better effect on you -- being resentment or grateful? Being negative and nasty or positive and helpful?

Hans Hickler | July 25, 2014 | Healthy Living
How we think leads us to the actions we take. The actions we take define us -- our character is defined by our actions. We control our character!

If It's Meant to Be

Kate McClanaghan | July 25, 2014 | Healthy Living
All the perseverance, promotion, and patience required of you, beyond what anyone might have initially considered acceptable, would certainly surprise the average man on the street. But then maybe that's the whole point. To stand out, you have to stand up.

Allison Renner | July 25, 2014 | Women
Don't expect your partner to read your mind, or to bring you breakfast in bed, or to offer to wash the dishes. It's not going to happen. You can't expect anything from anyone -- you have to make your desires known.

Dennis Merritt Jones | July 25, 2014 | GPS for the Soul
Have you ever thought of yourself as a pebble? Metaphorically speaking, on the "pond of life" that is exactly what you are when you consider those who are affected by the ripple effect of your thoughts, deeds, and actions.

When Your Heart Says, 'Hell No!' -- How to Step Out of a Bad Situation

Kristi Ling | July 24, 2014 | Healthy Living
Let go of what's not working. Be brave enough to move on. Make bold choices. It's okay if they're last minute, split second, or otherwise -- as long as you're following your inner-voice. Be audacious enough to ask the driver to stop the bus so you can jump off and see what adventures are waiting for you.

I Hope My Kids Will Always Be Able to Look Up to Me

Grete DeAngelo | July 24, 2014 | Parents
"Mommy, I don't want to grow taller than you. I always want to be able to look up to you," my tween son told me last night. I'm sure he meant that literally, but I couldn't help but take the message as a figurative one. Can I be a mom who will always be worth looking up to?
