Hey, have you got 13 minutes?

My husband shared this TED Talk with me the other day.  I had just lost my fiftieth pound and before the morning was over, I was already talking about how I'll lose the next 25 pounds.  I had my moment of celebration, which I shared here on the blog, and immediately pushed my weight-loss goal farther out.  Jack reminded me that if happiness lies on the other side of "success", then I'll never get there.  It will always be out of reach.  Jack encouraged me to "Be happy now, and success will come."  Then he showed me this video:

How funny! Ijust shared this one with my brother the other day, who is on a journey of a very different kind! I absolutely loved it.

Hope you have a really wonderful Sunday with your family!
