During a stressful day at work yesterday, I glanced out the window overlooking the gray and gloomy Manhattan skyline. At that moment, a bunch of colorful balloons floated up past our floor and up into the sky – seemingly out of nowhere. It put a little pep in my step for the remainder of the day.

    That is definitely a sign. Nothing says “Chin up” more than a bunch of colorful balloons.
