THIS WEEK: THROW CONFETTI

Comedian George Carlin once said, “I feel sorry for confetti. Its useful life lasts about two seconds. And it can never be used again.” There is a part of us that understands this sentiment, especially from an environmental perspective. Confetti can also be a bit […]

THIS WEEK: FIND JOY

Joy is defined as “a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.” It’s our opinion that a feeling of great pleasure and happiness is something all of us and our world need more of today… and tomorrow… and forever. Doesn’t that sound nice? Just close your […]

THIS WEEK: LAUGH OUT LOUD

Emotions can be challenging to understand. They can also be difficult to regulate and accept. When we fall on the ground and injure our arm, there is no wonder our arm hurts. When we haven’t had something to drink in several hours, there is no […]
