Summer 2015 5% CHALLENGE.

I want to be happier, healthier, more "grounded," and less overwhelmed with life.

And I'd really, really, really like to get to onderland.

I will be "on vacation" for about half of the Summer Challenge -- and so part of the challenge is to make this time away from work truly life-giving.

I have been thinking a lot about work/life balance and "sabbath" and how recreation can be re-creation.

Who knows what ...

Who knows what the next year will hold...? But this summertime break is a time to gain strength for the challenges ahead.

I know exercise and eating right help me to live right.
