T-Minus 7 Days to T-Day

I think it’s accurate to say that this week has been a particularly negative and divisive one in this country.  I have found myself unplugging more and more every day, but it’s difficult to escape when it’s so pervasive.  It’s in these moments that I’m reminded how incredibly important it is to practice gratitude and […]

Light and Dark. Good and Evil. Love and Compassion.

When the Boston Marathon bombings occurred, I was on my way to the finish line (having stopped for frozen yogurt with my cousin), and ended up fleeing as I reached Kenmore Square.  In the hours that followed, fielding calls from frantic relatives and friends, then making my own to my best friend, who was volunteering […]

Finding Body Love in a Bridesmaid Dress Fitting

Yesterday, I had to go for a bridesmaid dress fitting.  I’m not sure how many of our readers have ever had to do this, but essentially, you have to stand with your arms straight out and they take all sorts of measurements before declaring that you need a size that is anywhere from 2-3 sizes […]

A View of Your Gratitude from High Up

Every day brings back and forth struggles between your wants and needs. This struggle, combined with a tendency to conform and a need for instant gratification, clouds your view of happiness. The science of gratitude offers some clarity, but like the physical concepts that explain why balloons fly, gratitude described as a transcendental idea, can […]

If you can’t run with gratitude, you don’t win.

My husband David got the running bug.  It started few years ago as a debt of gratitude to Children’s Hospital of Boston, an institution that has given our family so much. David and I have been together for more than 20 years, so I knew that he wasn’t a couch potato, but I never knew […]
