Confession - I read Huffington Post. Yup - my light-liberal reading; and while quite the gossip-publication, I find good reporting and writing.
Articles such as this one: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/roshi-joan-halifax/compassion-_b_1885877.html inspire me to be better while teaching and chaplaining and just being myself.
And this one: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lgbt-center-to-open-its-doors-across-from-mormon-temple-in-utah_us_5845ddfee4b02f60b02476e1 tell me more about my community than what I can find in local media.
Today is no different. This: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-travis-bradberry/10-unmistakable-habits-of_b_13772102.html speaks to me - I want to be this, meaning this will probably be one of my drivers for the new year.
Sure - I get anxiety when I read the news, but it's here at Huff Post that I also find something to laugh with, which then calms me down enough to move forward with my day.
