Challenge: Celebrate Yourself


Self love. That is the beginning of happiness. But society makes that awfully hard, especially for women. Look through covers of US magazine and you will see rotating covers featuring women who have gained weight, then next week a feature about an actress with an eating disorder. We have photoshopped models in every magazine, we have an unhealthy, … [Read more...]

I'm high up in the Gore Range with America's most inspiring left-handed climber Aron Ralston. We have a fantastic view of dawn through the silvery underleaves of the dewy underbrush as we breathe in the crisp mountain air.

Having just watched Due Date, … [Read more...]

I saw high water marks six feet up on the inside of the windows in the local tavern. Then an impossibly destroyed car. I'm wondering “how in God's name did that happen?” Then it got worse. One store front: burned. Another storefront: burned. … [Read more...]
