What if your "virtues" are killing you?
Did you ever realize that what you thought was one of your best traits wasn’t helping you at all? What if the generosity people praise you for is really just your inability to say no?

What I’m thinking about this week
Rats can laugh
Ever wonder what happens when you tickle a rat? OK, maybe you haven’t, but some neuroscientists have. Spoiler alert, they laugh. Studies show that at least rats and some primates laugh and play in similar ways to humans. The research has helped in studies on depression, and to me is just more proof that the desire to have joy and play isn’t human alone. Videos of giggling rats and more here.
Seriously, stop and look at this beautiful picture of the moon
Andrew McCarthy is an “astrophotographer," and the images he captures are amazing. This week, he posted a picture he took of the moon that he created from 24,000 images! This is what stares down at us each night.
Until next week, keep looking up,
