Stuff I Want To Share

    This has been a very busy year for me and sometimes, very draining both personally and professionally. As a simple as this may seem, I often try to just sit back, and gain some perspective on how lucky I really am (great family, great career, friends all over the world, my dogs) instead of focusing on what I feel like I may be missing.
    What has really helped me to take a step back and think about this, was the video below about the year of 2012.  Although there are some very funny moments in the video, it is also riddled with tragedy and heartache.  I don’t know what it is, but these videos usually leave me in tears.

    The other video that I wanted to share was this simple one asking the question, “Can Money Buy Happiness?”  It is a simple concept, and many of the simple suggestions could make a small difference in the lives of not only ourselves, but more importantly, someone else.

    I often tweet a link with “#YourDailyAwwwwww” and I just wanted to share this little Posterous site that I have used to culminate these little sweet finds that I make in my daily reading.  This may seem a little hokey, but I always think that it is just nice to share things that make me smile if I can.  With all the pressures and struggles in life and in education, it could be easy to be negative, but I think that we have a lot to be thankful for as well; either attitude can become contagious.
    Hopefully, there is something of value in what is shared above and can bring you either perspective or a smile. I know it has for me.
