The documentary, Expedition Happiness, was the inspiration for today's podcast.  It made me really reflect on things I can do to focus more on living life to the fullest.  We can all start by focusing on "all things positive".  Make sure that you are creating a healthy and happy environment to live in.  Don't let set backs, barriers and boundaries take you to a dark place in your mind...grow from it and allow perspective to keep you in a happy state of mind.
