Happy Friday! Here is this week’s 8 Good Things. This is my year-long weekly gift that is meant to be helpful, inspirational, aspirational, and informational. If I miss a Friday, it is because I am somewhere with no access to the internet 😉 Please keep scrolling down to see our upcoming Sojourns!
4) I have walked marathons on all seven continents, doing them as fundraisers. It took me five years. I still walk a lot these days. My legs feel it. Specifically, I experience sore joints and tendinitis in my left hip and ankle. Yoga, and believe it or not, walking, helps me feel better. Prolonged sitting does not! What also really helps is putting two scoops of Great Lake Gelatin Collagen into my coffee, tea or yogurt twice a day. If you have similar issues, I swear by this product. I buy it in bulk!
7) A woman’s game-changing approach to poverty relief. Her nonprofit model helps families become homeowners and able to send their kids to college. Read more.
8) “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful” ~Albert Schweitzer, German theologian, philosopher and physician (1875-1965)

Argentina, December 18th – January 6th. Where can you climb one of the seven summits and drink great wine? Mt. Aconcagua (22,841ft.) and Malbec pair nicely in Argentina (well, pre or post climb!) This year we are doing a climb in support of the Green Beret Foundation. The climb is being led by world-class climbing guides, Willie and Damien Benegas. Here is what they have to say: “We could not be more proud to be working with this great organization, looking forward to sharing this upcoming Aconcagua trip with you all.” Details here: Sojourn Explorers Aconcagua.
