Something changed last night. As I watched our House of Representatives pass a bill that would exclude dozens of serious pre-existing conditions from insurance coverage, I realized my silence has been hurtful.
I have several amazing female friends who join teams and participate in races all over the country. Their goal is to raise money for a worthy cause, or just have fun and meet personal fitness goals. (People have those, you know.)
I felt a prompting this year to pursue joy. I'm embarrassed even writing the words "pursue joy," but there it is. I actually considered making JOY my word for 2016, but didn’t think it was interesting or complex enough.
