When I see little things in the news, like people living in the wake of Hurricane Sandy that still have power stringing extension cords and power strips out so others can charge their phones and other important equipment, I realize that I still have hope for the human race.

I started to lose a little hope when someone broke into my Jeep the other night, but then I read about good news and I feel better again. I’m hoping that people in the U.S. will do the right thing and vote like a good citizen should and more importantly, cast an intelligent vote on Tuesday (if they haven’t already). I might not agree with your political beliefs, but if you fill in your ballot with thought and compassion for the greater good of your fellow brothers and sisters throughout the country, regardless of how different they are from you, you’re doing the right thing.


So yesterday was Halloween and people of all walks of life were dressing up as people of other walks of life. This in itself was a call for celebration, and lots of people did just that, however, I was feeling particularly celebratory because I was able to put on a Halloween costume I haven’t been able to wear in years.

I am ahead of schedule when it comes to my fitness regimen and my overall health plan. I’m feeling really good about being ahead of schedule, but I’m not relaxing. Numbers are still being tallied at the end of the day and abs are still being crunched. I’m carrying on with my plan and I’m already working on the new goal that has been established.

But it felt good to feel like a superhero yesterday.
