I’ve been really slacking on my Friday Favorites, but I’m back at it!
Today’s Friday Favorites is all about music. I love music. I listen to it while I work, cook, clean and workout. There is something about music that lets you escape the stress of everyday life.
It’s almost St.Patrick’s Day…one of my favorite days of the year. I am half Irish, but in my heart, I’m 100%. Both my maternal grandparents were born and raised in Ireland, and I am determined to go back there someday. I am beyond proud of my heritage, and I remind my children of it constantly.
Today we’re talking about how social media and PR work together. Before twitter, facebook and snapchat, the only way to let people know that you and your company were going on to be on the 10 pm news is an email blast or a phone call.
I hate the gym, yes I know that’s a strong word. But the thought of being on a cross trainer for 45 minutes is like walking on nails for me. I’m the type of person who will stop half way through. The only way that I’m successful at working out is when I’m with a trainer or in a group fitness class. I need to be pushed. I need motivation. I need a group of people around me. I need to be held accountable.
The older I get, the more I believe in fate. I really think things happen for a reason.
Yesterday, a public affairs officer from the U.S. military in Afghanistan connected with me on LinkedIn. I immediately messaged him to thank him for what he is doing for our country.
