Gearing up for a Miracle…or Two

Gabby Bernstein is the real deal.  I am more than excited to not only read May Cause Miracles, but to implement the 40 Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness.  Doesn’t that just sound like it’s something awesome!

I have read the introduction and I am already inspired beyond belief.  I am fired up and ready to forgive my past, release my future, and show up for the present with love and faith.  Something is telling me that this might be CLC’s first book of the month. Check back July 1st and see.

Popsugar Musthave: June’s Box

I love this time of the month.  Every time I open the mail and there’s my pink and white box, I do the happy dance…literally.   Time to present to you, June’s POPSUGAR MustHave Box.

When I opened this month’s box, I was so excited with what was inside.  Great for summertime.  I look forward to taking my goodies to the beach.  I love the feeling of being fresh and the scent of lemons.  This was a winner in my book. The You Smell Lemon Wet Wipes (retail $6), SACHAJUAN Shiny Citrus Body Lotion (retail $24), and the Turkish-T Beach  Towel (retail $32) are already in my beach bag for tomorrow.

Oh my goodness, tell me it’s not so.  I was eyeing this book yesterday at Barnes and Nobles Bookstore.  I am definitely a fan of Emily Griffin.  In my box is a copy of “The One & Only” (retail $28).  A great summer read.  It’s a novel  of an unlikely romance and lifelong friends set against the backdrop of Texas football.  I will be surprised if I can even put it down.

Also in box, a package of Lollies Basic Hair Ties (retail $8). With my current workout situation and hot summer heat, a much needed gift.

I love that there is always, a special gift in each POPSUGAR MustHave Box.  This month, there was a $15 voucher Native Union.  Definitely appeals to the geek in me. Will reveal purchase after I stop drooling and pick something!

Inspired by beachy hair, citrus, sand, sun, surf. backyard bbq’s, relaxing, unwinding, reading, and stripes…the June’s POPSUGAR Musthave Box is definitely a MUST HAVE.

#BerkleeNOLA: A Month Later

It has been a month since I left for my volunteer trip to New Orleans, LA.  I can’t believe how fast time flys.  Not a day goes by where I don’t think about my experience there.  Being blessed with such a wonderful opportunity has not only created a special place in my heart, but I now have a new family of 9 other great people.  Berklee College of Music’s GraceNotes does wonderful things in the community of Boston, so to step out and into NOLA was just fabulous!

As we went around New Orleans, so many people would tell us “Thank you for being here and helping.”  I want to tell the lovely people of New Orleans, “Thank you for having us and allowing us to come into your home and aid in rebuilding a legend.  I am very appreciative of everything and everyone that I encountered in NOLA. There was great food, fun, people and lots of hard work!

 

What’s Up With The Elephants?

So every blue moon I get the question, “What’s your fascination with elephants?”  So being that I have decided to use elephants as a symbol for Chief Life Changers, I figured I would explain why.

Elephants can be the symbol for many things such as wisdom, honor, reliability, royalty, dignity, happiness, longevity,  strength,  stability, patience, among other attributes.

When speaking of the Hindu ways, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha.   Ganesha is the god of luck, fortune, protection and a blessing on all new projects.  Ganesha also bulldozes obstacles.

Elephants are also considered Gentle Giants.  I love gentle giants. Don’t you?

As I embark on this new adventure of sharing and caring, motivating and inspiring…I bring along a symbol that embodies what Chief Life Changers is all about.  We are to be strong but patient, proud but honorable, and have dignity in all that we are and all that we do.
