In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Find a friend...Be a friend...

No man is an island...
Unless you are Tom Hanks and the movie is Castaway... But even Tom had "Wilson"...His Volleyball BFF.  We all need someone.  It is part of our humanity.  We are living, breathing, feeling people.  We need people who care about us.  People who listen to what we feel, think, believe.  We need people who think we can conquer the world, paint the Mona Lisa, compose something that rivals Handel's Messiah.  It is not enough to play on the computer, consume our lives with work, or diapers, or whatever your lot in life currently is.  To THRIVE we need to connect.  So in the year 2012 I challenge you to CONNECT.  Maybe it means actually going out with old high school friends you have been chatting on facebook with for over three years.  Or sitting with your BFF (or as I like to call them TFF...TRUE FRIEND FOREVER) over a cup of hot chocolate and a myriad of memories.  It might mean taking your child out for that needed parent child time...  At our house those are called "Mommy or Daddy Dates" and everyone always thinks "it's their turn."  It could mean you go sit with your parent and tell them how grateful you are for all they did... (or if you didn't have that kind of parent, not everyone find your mentor...we all have those...and tell them what they mean to you.)  But CONNECT!  I challenge you to find a friend and to be a friend.  In the year 2012 I challenge you to CONNECT!

Changing the world...ONE letter at a time!
