This is dedicated to my late husband Chris. Of all my writings, this was his favorite:

Jennifer>>>>>Chris>>>>>Happy Anniversary 2014

Life is but a moment
For us, our moment has lasted 25 years
Oh how I wish for 25 more
Then 25 more after that
For the rest of my life I will love you
And will miss you when you go away
For life is but a moment
Then the moment slips away.....
Into Eternity

With Love Beyond Life,

The more connections you have the better your chances for success. Connections help you to find new opportunities, new information & new relationships. Not only in business but in life it’s about the right connection to achieve success. This is actually a chapter from my Body Passport book: The Right Connection. Here are a few tips from that chapter:

Only date or marry a person with whom you have chemistry. Otherwise, it’s a waste of your time and theirs. Even actors have to take a chemistry test before each movie to see if they’re compatible.

Connecting with your partner on as many levels as possible-spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical-is a road map for success. The theory “opposites attract” only works for magnets.

Getting married is a choice. Having children is a choice. Don’t let someone else choose for you or pressure you into doing either of these things. You choose or it will be a life sentence. You may choose to remain single because it’s all you can live with and all you can take. Your declaration of independence is a constitutional right.

There will be family matters because family matters. Nothing matters more as a matter of fact.

Roll call of the substitute parents: the TV, the iPad, video games, the computer, the cell phone, the MP3 player. Both parents and children pay the price when a substitute parent is called in too often.

Remember to say “I love you” to those you love before you hang up the phone or say goodbye because it may be the last time you ever speak to or see them. For real.

Your circle of friends may change over time, but your true friends will remain. Your circle isn’t complete without them. Friendship rings, bracelets, and other friendship gifts were created with this in mind, as a sign of your long-standing friendships. You should give them something for sticking around so long.

If you would like to read more exciting chapters like this, you can get my Body Passport book or ebook on the Shop Page of this website.

Here’s hoping that you find all of the right connections for success!

In honor of Father's Day, I wrote something special to celebrate:

"There for You"

You learned to ride a bike with help from Dad

You played catch and built sandcastles together

You delighted in something he got just for you

You went out with your friends chauffeured by Dad

You turned to him when you felt lost or were in trouble

You asked him to fix something beyond repair

You felt he loved you even in tough times

You watched him grill a steak he cooked perfectly for you

You got your driver's license after training with Dad

You called him to say you were okay any time of day

You quoted Dad to others with wisdom he gave you

You followed his lead and succeeded in life

You celebrated together all special occasions 

You had a drink with Dad when your age was right

You hugged him each time you said "Hello" or "Goodbye"

You did all of this because ... Dad has always been there for you. He rules!
Happy Father's Day!  Thank you to all the great Dads out there for all that you do!

HeartIn honor of Mother's Day, here is some inspiration from Mother Teresa. For those of you who are not familiar with who she was, Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun, Missionary, and Founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity. She was a recipient of numerous honors for her work including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. One of her legacy gifts to us was a poem titled: "Do It Anyway." The verses reportedly were written on the wall of Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta, India and their association with her has made them popular worldwide. They are as follows: 
People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Thank you Mother Teresa for this inspirational gift. Your legacy lives on and you will always be remembered. Happy Mother's Day to all of the great moms out there for all that you do.
