Henna!

December 31, 2012 | Posted in General | By

I have wanted to try henna for a long time and yesterday I finally did! My friend Lauren is an amazing artist and she creates beautiful henna art for people. It is a great way to “try out” a tattoo before you commit or just a temporary expression of beauty. In some cultures, woman get henna on their hands and feet for their weddings. I think it looks so gorgeous! My friend Lauren’s link is below for local Upstate NY people. If you don’t know someone who does henna in your area, you can buy a kit at your local craft store and do it yourself! There are millions of possibilities for designs, check them out online. So have some fun and give henna a try, or even host a henna party and Live Inspired Now!

Snow day!!!

December 29, 2012 | Posted in General | By

Wow… here in Upstate NY, we have tons of beautiful snow and it is still coming down! They are those giant wet flakes that stick in your hair and make everything look so white and clean. The pine tree branches are all weighed down and the yard is calling out for the first person to make tracks in the smooth white cover. I can’t wait to get out there and play!
Today, take some time to play in the snow. Snow angels, snowmen, sledding, snow forts, snowball fights and even catching snowflakes… are all wonderful, fun, snow day activities! Get out there and have some fun and Live Inspired Now!

PS: No snow where you are? Get out and have some fun anyway…. get some fresh air, enjoy nature or take a hike.

Love is the true purpose…

December 28, 2012 | Posted in General | By

I watched a documentary the other night about this doctor who devoted his entire life to developing medical procedures and tools that made life easier for terminal patients. He never married, had no children but had plenty of patents and a legacy of making a difference in peoples lives. This doctor had done amazing things and was highly honored and respected but at the end of the interview, he said he had but one regret. He regretted never getting married and having someone to love. I felt bad for the man because at the end of the day, he went home alone. He had tons of friends and colleagues and lots of awards and honors, but nobody to fall asleep with or to smile at in the morning.
You career, job, book, invention or hobby may keep you busy and entertained but they will never provide love. Give you heart to someone, this is the true purpose in life…. to love someone.
Today, think about how much better off we are for the people in our lives that we love and Live Inspired Now!

Set a fine example…

December 27, 2012 | Posted in General | By

Thad and I took the kids on Christmas day to volunteer serving meals to the needy and this is what our daughter Madison posted on facebook that same evening.
Today I got the opportunity to help out people who are less fortunate and don’t have any family really to spend Christmas with. Today I was their family, and to know I made their day that much better makes my whole life that much better. I want to be able to devote my life to always helping people, because it is honestly such an amazing feeling.”
This is why we should always set a positive example for our kids and let them get involved in making a contribution. Kids are highly impressionable; which would you rather they learn from… your life experiences or Jersey Shore on television? A woman I met at the community center that day said “Lessons are caught not taught” after she complimented us on bringing all of our children to help. It is true… you can try and teach a kid how to act or what to do but ultimately, they will mirror your behavior. So today, set a fine example for your kids, not everyone has to volunteer but be sure that whatever you are doing, it is something you wouldn’t mind your kid doing as well and Live Inspired Now!
