I came across this magazine as I was buying gatorade for my post-workout drink and chocolate covered raisins to satisfy my sweet-tooth. I typically do not purchase magazines, because the articles are not always mentally fulfilling. However, the photography makes for great inspiration. This magazine has articles pertaining to woman who are still feminine and putting their mark in the business world. The article that resinated with me the most titled, Girl Power, written by Hollie Deese is about why it is important to stay connected with your best friend. This relationship is special because it is the one person who has seen you grow and develop in the various stages of your life. I am very fortunate to have more than one best friend. These ladies inspire me to be better, improve my emotional well-being, and have absolutely beautiful souls. Women in business is a wonderful thing to embrace and so are the special bonds we create.
Recommended read: I enjoyed this book because it profiled three successful leaders, each with very different leadership traits. There is not a perfect formula for success. Focus on the positive and enhance your natural talents. You already have the tools that you need to be great.
This weekend I had the opportunity to be surrounded by the little people I love. I played with guinea pigs, ate endless amounts of ice cream, and learned that the most delightful toy can be a balloon.
I was able to experience the world through the eyes of a nine and a six year old. A simple, yet magical world where cutting computer paper can make a transformer, fish can fly, and sugar followed by more sugar makes for the best day ever.
It was a joy to see that happiness is free, how dreams thrive on such playful energy, and life is measured in giggles.
If you have the pleasure to experience life from pure and youthful eyes, embrace their magic shows, the way they brighten up a room, and continue to leave a smile on your face.
