Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Roses and Thorns

This is going to be a little bit of an Olympic-inspired Roses and Thorns... I can't help it, I'm a tad obsessed. I've had it on pretty much constantly all week long. There's just such great stories and accomplishments and people! Love it! 

A big roses to all of our Team USA Olympic medalists! Booya! 

Roses to boarder Hannah Teter and her amazing charity. Seriously, this girl is my hero at the age of 23 (OMG, she's the same age as my sister, minus seven days!).

Roses to working it out and resolving conflict.

Roses to four-day work weeks until the end of March! Love having vaca to burn!

Roses to feel-good stories and inspiration.

Roses to global camaraderie. I loved watching Lindsey Vonn hanging out with her German BFF Maria Riesch. That is the quintessence of healthy competition! (Plus they are both gorgeous and wanted to split the golds evenly among their four events!)

And while we're on the topic of skiers and riders, what up Shaun White?!? Roses to you man, you have the sport wrapped around your finger!

Thorns to seriously painful-looking ski wipe-outs. OUCH!

Thorns to the boyfriend dissing the Olympics. Why couldn't he be just a little bit of a sports fan?

Thorns to yet ANOTHER change in my company's vacation policy. WTF?!?

Thorns to Shaun White looking like a woman. Really, dude, just cut your orange locks, ok?

Thorns to annoying system upgrades at work.

{R&T inspired by K.Law: Inspired -- holla at my girl!}
