A business trip to NY turned into a brief nightmare when weather turned bad at our destination. Flight cancellation had me and 2 coworkers scrambling to find a way to get home. As other people are worried about the world ending tomorrow and hunkering down in Sirince, Turkey here we are flying to a weird destination and driving. As we made alternate plans started accepting the fact and mother nature’s surprise for us we started relaxing. We are now experts in Laguardia airport, booking and rerouting flights, hotels, rental cars, finding chargers for devices and anything you can think of. This picture I took at Bryant Park became my reminder of ‘all will be OK’. In a funny way despite circumstances we are now enjoying ourselves. We even said ‘what an adventure!’. Now that’s what I call good attitude.
Flowing with life is better than swimming against it!
This holiday season make some real time with people you really care about. That is the best gift you can give yourself. I baked the above dessert with my dear friend Melanie – and even took this picture together. We surprised ourselves at what a good time we had. Truly being in each other’s presence, baking and laughing, sharing stories from 2012. So stop running around from store to store to buy more stuff that probably you or others don’t need. Spend that time to connect with people in your life – and I don’t mean messaging them on facebook. I chose to bake since its an activity we both love – choose your own activity, whatever that is. What we all really need is to make real memories that nourish our inner being.
So go ahead give yourself a gift of time and a real memory this holiday!
