MM&I Header

February 13, 2012 - Have you given thought lately to what you simply adore and love about your life and work? Have you paused to appreciate it and know how much it means to not only you, but those you love and enjoy being with and sharing it with? Too often, we get so caught up in the grind and demands of everyday life, that we fail to embrace and appreciate all that makes our life and work worth living and doing.

Take an MM&I Moment this Valentine's week to pause and acknowledge all that you love about your relationships, your work, and your life. Share with others who mean the most to you and encourage them to do the same with you and others. Even the smallest of acknowledgements can bring about the most powerful possibilities and opportunities. Appreciation and acknowledgement naturally brings about even more and more things to love and appreciate.


Synergized Quote of the Week 

"When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love." - Marcus Aurelius
