Might I take a moment and recommend some new measurements? Some new measurements that are not external in nature, but are internal—measurements that weigh the very heart and soul of humanity. And begin to give us a far better sense of who to trust, who to follow, and who to champion.

I continue to be inspired by Joshua's writings at becomingminimalist.com. His simple, pragmatic approach helps us to slow down the pace and appreciate that which gives meaning and satisfaction to our lives; friends, family and nature are a few that come to mind for me.

Beet and Avocado Smoothie

Need to cleanse that liver a bit after the holidays? Beets are the answer and this delicious combination might just do the trick.
