Lately, I've been thinking about what makes us feel happy. Maybe it's because it's summer—something that has always made me unequivocally happy—and right now, I'm not feeling that familiar adrenaline-fueled kind of happiness. Really, when you think about it, that's perfectly normal, isn't it? I mean, how can one thing—summer—erase all the other so-called stresses that enter our lives? And who is happy all the time, anyway?

A new study shows that teenage girls who are active in sports are less likely to die prematurely from cancer or other causes as they get older. That's great news—especially for a family like mine with a strong disposition toward cancer.

It's a common scenario: It's after-hours or a weekend and you need to see your doctor. But the office is closed. Or it's flu season and you can't get an appointment to see your doctor for two weeks. Maybe you're out of town and don't have access to your regular physician. Or you don't have your own physician. It's not exactly an emergency—your throat is scratchy and sore—but you don't want to wait to see your doctor.

Each summer for the past nine years, I either hop on a plane or train and travel into the blogosphere to attend the BlogHer Conference. It's an enlightening experience being around so many brilliant and inspiring women.
