Take a Trip with Me

Take a trip with me to New York City. On my new Life Replay page, I rehash good times from June 2002 during a visit to Manhattan with five special people. The motivation behind writing this post was the death of Osama bin Laden, remembrance of 9-11, and Mother’s Day.

Inspiration for the Life Replay page comes from Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham. Upon reading his book earlier this spring, I discovered how delightful it was to replay various life segments in my head. Paying more attention to these moments enables me to learn more about what make me feel strong and fulfilled.

Quoting his book jacket nearly verbatim: Buckingham discusses what the happiest and most successful women do differently. I found his insight to be very enlightening and would encourage anyone — male or female — to read this book.

My NYC trip replay signifies good times, reflections at Ground Zero, living in the moment and looking forward to new life chapters. Let me know what you think. Happy reading.
