@Howie Goldfarb Thanks, Howie! It really is. I know you have a lot going on but at any point if you'd like to get involved, just say the word.
Thinking of it, I'd love to know what @ancitasatija @mrdancohen @kirkhazlett @mattlacasse and some other #WUL team members think... and oh, @rachaelseda signed on as a #hopeproject Champion!

@RobBiesenbach Ooh, Hawaii! I want to go there! As for me - outside of busting my arm last week (fell on ice, ugh), I'm doing well, thank you!

@KDillabough I saw the snow angel pic on FB - loved it! I'd give anything to dance around right now, but my arm won't stand for it. :(
@Erin F. I don't think my nicknames were strange enough...

@rosemaryoneill That was such a kind comment, Rosemary - thank you! And I am so sorry it took me this long to reply... I think I was in transit and then it just got crazy. Has 2014 started well for you?

@KDillabough Thank you, belatedly, my friend! How is March 2014 treating you?
@lisaml15 Ditto, Lisa, and very belated thanks!
@RobBiesenbach Belated thanks! So... now that 2014 has been here a few months, how is everything going?
@dbvickery Back at you re: the getting to know bit, Brian - I'm so sorry I replied so late!
@Ancita I'm so sorry to have replied late, Ancita! It was wonderful to talk to you on India time, and I hope to do so again soon! And I hope 2014 has started off wonderfully for you.
@Soulati | Hybrid PR Ha, love it!

@KDillabough I'm so sorry to reply THIS late! I missed the Beatles tribute, I wish I'd watched it. Belated congrats on your 3-year anniversary!
@biggreenpen Those are both great points, Paula. The second one is particularly important, I think, and that's been on my mind a lot lately. It's an area I've been trying to do better in, which is why you see me less on social these days!
@Soulati | Hybrid PR Awww! Sorry I've taken so long to get here, traveling like a maniac and then injuring my arm hasn't helped. I think I'd completely dry up if I were at one of those auditions...!
@Howie Goldfarb I've seen some of my friends start to use it again!

I think we all say we're trying to be good social citizens, but in reality we're giving in to envy, jealousy (different things), backbiting, etc. Part of that is because it's such a small world. Part of it is... we're human! But if we try to be more mindful of what truly makes us feel good - in a long-lasting way, not just a transient "high" - and I'm reminded of @prtini's excellent post on mindfulness - then I think we get one step closer to being so.

This is really interesting, Heather - I will check out the app! I've been using Lift to track and develop habits. I found it very useful, though I went through a period where I started to get stressed if I didn't check in a day or two. The more I thought about it, though, I realized that that too is within my control... and if I'm mindful about why I am/not doing something, then there's really no reason to get stressed!
It's interesting that you're focusing on mindfulness right now - I'm trying to do that too, and as you say, I think many of us are. Everyone has their own way of getting there, and learning about these different paths is really interesting to me.
