GOOD NEWS NOW!

“You can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone.” -Ronald Reagan

This month, I am writing to share several pieces of good news.

First, I finished writing my very first book, Motivation Now!  I hope to launch the book shortly and I can let you know when it is ready to go.  In the meantime, I am looking for those interested in writing a brief 2-4 line endorsement/testimonial.  If you get it to me by 7/31/2017 it will make it in the back pages of the book.  Please let me know so I can arrange to share an advance copy (click here to email me).  I know that some of you did offer to read an earlier piece and I am just waiting for your endorsements back.  The full launch will take place in early September.  That is when you would put your review up on Amazon and on Linked In.  I will send back your endorsement with a reminder and instructions on what to do.  Thanks to all in advance for joining my launch team; I truly appreciate your support.

Second, I am again Championing and Moderating the Transitioning into and within the Medical Device Industry on August 16th at Regis College in Weston 5:30pm-8:30pm.  This is the 11th Annual Event.  The panelists are top notch and we will have special guests sharing advice.  Please click here for more details.

On a personal note, I hope that you are keeping cool and enjoying this beautiful weather.  We just returned home from Orlando, Florida after a relaxing vacation.  We went to Universal Studio’s one day, and then spent the rest of the week relaxing on the lazy river at Orange Lake Country Club.  We played mini golf, scaled rock climbing walls and went on a hippo slide as well as other water slides.  It has been a good month.

Again, if you want to participate on my book launch team just let me know.  I would appreciate any help.  I am not concerned with how many books are sold it is more of an awareness campaign.  The kindle version will also be available for posting your reviewThanks in advance for helping me achieve my goal of authorship.  I always appreciate your comments on the pieces that I send. I hope you’ll consider sharing my book on social media; currently I’m only active on LinkedIn.  Finally, I plan to donate proceeds from my book to my favorite charity.

HEROES NOW!

“Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.”  -Pamela Vaull Starr

By now you have probably realized that I really enjoy sports, the teams and the players.  It was truly my honor to meet with and get my photo taken with “Big Papi,” Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz.

I felt like a mushroom next to him.  He is really a nice guy and he talked frankly about his life, the other players and all his past coaches.  He is my favorite ballplayer and I could always count on him to make contact with the ball.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes.  We have sports heroes like “Big Papi,” we have wartime heroes and we have heroes in our own families like our dads and husbands.  Anyone that knows me knows that my dad will always be a hero and a role model to me.   A very Happy Father’s Day greeting to all the Dads on this listing.

The point of this post is to share: Who are your heroes?  Who do you look up to and admire?  Who has traits and characteristics that you strongly believe in?  Who is a role model in your family and in your community?

Dream deep, for every dream precedes a goal.  That was the Red Sox and after 86 years (since 1918) they finally won a World Series in 2004.  Then they did it again in 2007 and they won a third World Series in 2013.  I believe that any of this is possible if you want it bad enough and if you follow your heart.

MOTHER’S DAY NOW!

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”  -Robert Louis Stevenson

This past weekend we celebrated Mother’s Day by paying homage to all moms including my mom, my mother-n-law, my sister-n-law and myself.  We had the family together and none of the mom’s had to cook, clean or do dishes. We tried to find a restaurant, but no one was willing to reserve 20 seats on Mother’s Day and we were not going to sit and wait until they could accommodate us.  So, we did the next best thing, we ordered Chinese food and ate in the convenience of our home.

It was much more of a relaxing atmosphere and my mother was not over stimulated.  In the last several years my mom has been suffering from Alzheimer’s.  My mother exemplifies living in the moment as her short term memory is unfortunately completely gone.  But she is still very much with us.  I hope and pray that someday there will be a cure for this terrible disease.  I am just lucky that I still have my mother and mother-n-law in my life.  Do you have a mother or mother-n-law in your life?  Do you have a daughter, daughter-n-law, or sister-in law in your life?  All of these people are responsible for bringing life into the world and because of that, we should be truly grateful.

I know that being a mom is the best job in the world.  My son is in 4th grade and this Friday we are going to a beach (Plum Island) to study marine life.  He asked me to be a chaperone.  I was so touched.  I know that soon he will probably say something different.  He is the most incredible kid.  He is sensitive, loving and caring.  He says what he feels.  He made his Nana’s happy with the cards he made for them, and I loved the beautiful card that he made me.  Why is it that it is the little things that mean the most?  I hope that you had a Happy Mother’s Day for you or your spouse.  Mother’s Day is the one day that we actually honor our mothers and all the unselfish acts they have done for us throughout the years.  Sorry that this is late, but Mother’s Day wishes are not forgotten.

CELEBRATE NOW!

 

“Celebrate Good Times.” – Kool & the Gang

Sigma Delta Tau celebrated our 100 year anniversary of sisterhood since our sororities founding and I organized a PSI chapter dinner.  We had 9 sisters attend and we all had a great time.  Sisters are forever.

John and I got away for a real second honeymoon.  We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we went away to an all inclusive resort in Cancun Mexico.  It was called the Hard Rock Resort on Riviera Mia.  There was no cooking, no cleaning and no work.  We left our laptops at home and also no children.  Yes, we missed our son terribly.  But we called him each night and we knew that he was in great hands with both sets of Grandparents and his aunts and uncle.  Our minds were at ease.  We had everything that we needed and so didn’t he.

On Sunday night when we celebrated our anniversary, we enjoyed a Romantic dinner on the beach with candlelight, champagne, a paparazzi and an accordion and a violinist.  We also had a day of adventure where we went to a breathtaking snorkeling bay.  Then we flew on 3 zip lines, then extreme rappelling down a tower structure and finally experiencing an underground cenote and seeing the stalactites and stalagmites.  What a vacation.  I actually called this the ultimate couples vacation.  It was amazing.  Do you know when you really need a vacation?  When you come back and your completely at ease.  That was an amazing 7 days and we enjoyed every minute of it.  Have you taken a vacation with just your spouse recently?  It can really cement your relationship and take you back to the past.  Who can’t use an ultimate break with no responsibilities.  We found it very fulfilling and it was an ultimate celebration.

Last but not least we had a huge family gathering for dinner on Easter Sunday with 20 people at the house.  Then we celebrated my son’s 10th birthday (believe it or not he is now in double digits).  We also celebrated Aunt Kathy’s, Aunt Judy’s, and Papa Sasso and Nanny Sasso’s birthdays.  We had the whole family together for some good old fashion celebrating.  It is so wonderful how well our families get along and it is a pleasure for us to host everyone.  Do you have family traditions like this?  We have been hosting this holiday for everyone for 10 years and each year is more rewarding.

There was a lot of celebrating that I wanted to acknowledge.  I hope that there was celebrating at your home.  Family traditions make life special.  What traditions do you have that are dear to you?
