Synergy Success E-Zine, DECEMBER 2013


Three things in human life are important:

the first is to be kind;

the second is to be kind;

and the third is to be kind.

~ Henry James




Holiday Greetings to YOU and a Warm Welcome to our growing community of heart-centered women, who are creating balanced success through a restorative lifestyle by Working Smart, Playing Hard, and Resting best we can, even in the midst of life's challenges.


It's hard to let go. From the smallest things -- like the fact that your Christmas tree lights only work on half the tree, or the expectations you place on yourself to over-deliver in every imaginable way around the holidays--To the biggest things--like cherished loved ones who pass away before we are ready to say good-bye.      


Yesterday I had the honor of uplifting a dear friend as she put her mother to rest. I'm sad to say it was also the day my father-in-law lost his heroic 74-day battle with double pneumonia, kidney failure, and sepsis following a double heart valve replacement surgery he had 74 days ago.


This weekend our family will be in Maryland celebrating the life of this amazing man who I will forever remember for his deep devotion to family, sunny disposition, commitment to excellence, and kindheartedness.


They say the best way to honor someone who you have lost is to create something meaningful in their memory. That's why I invite you to join me in doing one random act that shines some light into the life of another person every day, beginning today.


Just imagine the positive energy that a single act of kindness can carry!  Our chance to make a difference is now. Let's remember to live each day in the present moment, as best we can...And love like today is all there is.   


What do you say?  Will you Share a Smile. Be Kind. and Pass it on?
