If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a fan of TED talks.

What is a TED talk? You can click here to find out more.

I love TED talks because the subjects they talk about are so unique and cover an enormous gammet of subjects.

I discovered the following TED talk through my RSS feed today and the title piqued my interest (keep in mind, the talks are always discussed appropriately – at least in my experience so far). I watched this talk, thought it was awesome, and wanted to share.

Now I need to call the hubs and find out what we’re doing for dinner tonight…I could really go for some pizza. 🙂

Have a fantastic Monday!

diabetes and redemption.

Oh my gosh, you guys. I watched this video this morning because I was interested by the title: “What if we’re wrong about Diabetes?” And I was TOTALLY floored by what I saw. I’ve been thinking this way about diabetes and other illnesses for a couple of years now, but I didn’t expect many others, especially a physician trained in western medicine, to think the same way. Not only was I surprised to learn that an E.R. doctor is trying to change how we think about/treat diabetes and insulin resistance, but I was also touched by his humility. In short, I felt inspired.

As some of you know, Steve was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes 5 years ago. It was completely out of the blue. He had no noticeable signs or symptoms and wasn’t overweight. We’re lucky that it showed up on a routine blood test.

Since then, we’ve been trying different ways of eating and exercise to see if we can “reverse” it. We’re making progress.

This video is SO WORTH the 16 minutes.

Have a great week!

choosing happiness: part 5,001.

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope your Father’s Day was a good one! We had a beautiful day here in Salt Lake and only wish it would have lasted longer.

As you well know by now, we’re passionate about the topic of choosing happiness here. I read this post this morning from one of my favorite blogs of all time (if I haven’t mentioned that already) and wanted to pass it on to you. I’ve tried “pursuing virtues” in my own life and have seen firsthand how practicing this really does give you the ability to feel true happiness regardless of circumstance.

I hope it inspires you like it did me!

Have a great week!

Since Google Reader is going away, I’ve been looking for a place where I can read all of the blogs that I follow. If you’re in the same dilemma, you should give Bloglovin a try. I just discovered it and it’s been awesome so far.

Have a great day!
