Makes My Monday: Go Fish!

Indulge me a moment while I flare my fins....

Great News:
I am thrilled to have been invited to serve as an ambassador/faculty member of Pepperidge Farms' "Fishful Thinking" campaign!

Created by renowned Positive Psychology leader, Dr. Karen Reivich (who also happens to be a twin mama), Fishful Thinking is a tool for helping parents raise confident children...children who are well-equipped to overcome obstacles and thrive in the face of adversity -- kids who can dream, and ultimately reach their goals. [Can I hear an "Amen"?!?]

Best News of All:
On March 7th, from 8am to 3pm at the Crowne Plaza in White Plains, New York, Dr. Reivich is hosting the Fishful Thinking "Parenting for Possibilities" Workshop.

It's FREE, but is limited to 250 participants, so please RSVP here ASAP if you can attend.

Along with the 7-9 other Fishful Thinking faculty, I'll be there with my twin mama bells on; and would LOVE the chance to meet you in person to exchange ideas on how to encourage our children --positively and proactively.

An opportunity like this one simply Makes My Monday...and beyond.

No doubt you have a happy facet Making Your Monday this week -- please do tell!

Add your name and link to the Mr. Linky below, and share in the web-wide, week-beginning, day brightening. (Say that five times fast!)

Well, I won't get to meet you at the fish day because well, it would cost me a ton to come! But If I could be there I would give you a great big hung and a giant thanks for the linky love!!!

Hey, Cheryl, on a side note, my blog is going private. If you'd like to continue reading, just let me know and I'll list your email as one of my readers. Had too many trolls lately for my comfort.
