Today only comes once, so embrace it!

Sky-Embrace it

Last October, embracing the moment on my travels back from Boston, I took this photo with an I Pad.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Recently I was given the opportunity to create this 19″ visual ad that was published on or around March 31, 2014, in the Westfield News Business & Industry Section.

 

This ad is part of our 2014 campaign.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. ~Dr. Seuss

Pink Rose, Wendy Lane Wright

Beanie, you must be a rose!

 

Recently, our life-long friend, Beanie, who baby sat three generations of my family, underwent Hospice Care.  This strong lady full of life, smiles, laughter, compassion and great empathy, now lay helplessly.  Her body ravaged with cancer.

 

With wide resolute eyes, Beanie looked at me and asked, “Why me Wendy?  I go to church, and I live my life by always giving to others.  I have always done the right thing. “

 

I leaned in closer to her and held her hand.  I gently smiled as my throat constricted, and tears flowed down my face.  Beanie, you are such a rare and beautiful soul-one in humanity.

 

I am inspired by the flowers in my garden.  By tending to them, they grow and blossom.  A symbol of our relationship I hold dear to my heart.

 

Beanie, you are like a vibrant rose in full bloom with soft and fragile pedals. I tend to the roses in my garden as they grow and blossom.  I cut a handful of my best flowers to bring into my home and enjoy.

 

Beanie, you must be a rose!

This spring, I will plant a rosebush outside my front door in your honor.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Tennyson

Leadership is not for everyone!

Title

Like everyone else, a leader must also take time to enjoy life and nurture their own well-being of mind, body and soul.

 

In part, successful leaders are great mentors, coaches, negotiators, and administrators who ensure employees can grow, develop and stay engaged in the workplace.  Ensuring high quality services are delivered by well qualified staff.

 

Exceptional leaders are the primary basis for maintaining, and upholding a strong sense of employee satisfaction and excellent services are delivered, while maintaining fiscal stability.

 

A good administrator ensures the best possible care of staff because they are fundamental to organizational success.

 

Leadership is not for everyone!  To those exceptional leaders who lead by example with integrity and perseverance – THANK YOU!
