How would you escape?”The answer? “Stop imagining.”Well you could have knocked me over with a feather. Doesn’t this sound like a good way to look at a lot of things? If you just stop imagining all of the bad things, stop envisioning the worst that could happen, guess what? Those bad, worst things most likely won’t happen....more

Another Treat for BlogHer '12: A Hotel Room of One's Own

There are a myriad of excellent reasons to attend BlogHer ‘12 and to the pile I would like to add just one more...a hotel room of my own. I feel like I should preface this with telling you how much I love my husband and kids, but I am going to skip straight over that and tell you how much I love staying in a hotel without them. This little lick of luxury does not happen very often but when it does, like on my upcoming trip to NYC, I savor every minute. What's so great?...more

HealthMinder Day Interviews: Why This Is a Great Pre-Conference Addition!

As of today, HealthMinder Day is one week and six days away. Don't panic! I thought since HealthMinder Day is new to our pre-conference agenda, it would help all of us -- those already attending and those who can't decide -- to ask some of the committee members a question. Maybe it will help calm the nerves of those who don't know what to expect. Maybe it will make you click and register at the last minute. Either way, I asked the committee behind it all this question:Why do you think HealthMinder Day is an important addition to the pre-conference agenda?...more
