BE YOURSELF, RELAX, AND ENJOY...AND LET OTHERS ENJOY!
It's that time again. After re-dedicating ourselves and applying ourselves to our goals for the new year, many of us have come through what was a particularly challenging year. Through storm after storm, this particularly difficult winter and challenging spring created a scenario where smiling faces were at times hard-to-find. The key to grinding through it took nothing less than a lot of effort. Now finally, the weather has turned beautiful, the energy has changed, and people can be found smiling almost everywhere we look.

While the Middle East struggles with conflict over so many differences, in much of the rest of the world diversity, pride in who we are, and how we get along has never been more celebrated.

Some have observed that while the World Cup is being played, we are all in the same time zone. It certainly has been thrilling to watch so many New Yorkers celebrate their national identity by proudly wearing their nation's colors throughout the World Cup games without even a thought that celebrating one's identity would invite anything but delight by others. How great is that?

This brings me to two thoughts for the summer: 1) we should all proudly be who we are and 2) we can all be rejuvenated by games and recreational activities. 
In This Issue

Let's make time to have some fun, always respecting others as we do so in our different ways.
 
Myself and my colleagues at Everybody Paddles will be doing just that. In our next newsletter, now scheduled for September, I look forward to sharing with you the lessons learned from the Summer of 2014.

In the meantime, Keep Paddling!
 

 Sincerely,

PADDLERS OF THE MONTH
THE UNITED STATES SOCCER TEAM

Since the start of the FIFA (Federation International of Soccer Association), the world has been glued to each and every game, cheering for their respective country - and then there is the United States of America.  Soccer, or Futbol, does not hold the same clout in the US as in other countries until now.  It has been reported that the FIFA matches are the most watch sporting events of 2014; beating out the Super Bowl, NBA Finals and Sochi Winters Games.

 

 

With our team playing well, advancing and unifying us along the way, The US Soccer Team is the June Paddlers of the Month.
