This has been a pretty intense (ok, insane) week. I have been on the road in Chicago and New York sharing The Companion Guide. Despite the hectic nature of the days (not sure what town I’m writing this from!), I have had the great and wonderful opportunity to meet lots of people and hear the most incredible stories. Hearing about people’s life experiences is always such an inspiration to me (after all, I am Irish!).
This week, I have given many talks and interviews. My oh my oh my. On Tuesday, I did something called a “Satellite Media Tour” during which Stacy Sharpe, the beautiful and smart and amazing VP of Corporate relations at Allstate and I told the story (about ten times in a row to different television & radio stations) of The Companion Guide and Allstate’s commitment to give away companion guides for FREE to each and every person impacted by FBC between October of 2014 and October of 2015. By the way, if you haven’t downloaded your free copy, you can do so here: http://www.directrelief.org/silverlining
During each and every one of the interviews, hope is the recurring theme. After all, looking for (and then inevitably finding!) Silver Linings is what has always and continues to give me hope to get through the difficult times, even just a tough day. I believe that each and every one of us can do this, whether it is a diagnosis, heartbreak, job loss…What I know with absolute certainty is that pain is pain. We are all going to face pain in life. It is inevitable. What I also know for sure is that
So, this weekend, I hope that you will make the active decision to choose hope.
