There’s a free magazine I’ve been reading for quite some time called Neurology Now. The above quote is from the most recent issue from an article talking about foods that are good for the brain: food for thought.
Do you like inspirational stories? I find people that overcome adversity fascinating. That means everyone is fascinating because we all have some story, some sort of adversity we have overcome or are working on. Until last night, I had never heard of MasterChef Christine Ha.

She battles blindness due to an autoimmune disease called neuromyelitis optica or NMO for short. Here is some more info. – NMO
You can also read her blog at theblindcook.com.

Quotes like this, as true as they may be, have never done much for me. I don’t have the words to shape the sentiment. It’s just that it’s too simple. It’s like taking one piece of scripture and quoting it to somewhat reinforce an argument. There’s more to it.
ftc disclosure: I will be paid a small commission when you purchase through these links. Contact me if you’d like to know more. Thank you for your consideration.

I got a good laugh out of this old video my daughter showed me today. We love Ellen, and she knew this quick video would make my day! It’s pretty funny so I thought someone else might get a good laugh in. On a side note, my daughter thinks Ellen’s name is Ellen “The Generous” instead of DeGeneres.
