Feeling Your PINKitude?

Living Pinkitude Mary Kate Kopec

Happy Friday my beautiful wonderful happy SQUEE-Peeps!

I’ve been working hard on my new biz, and it’s going well, and I’m feeling down right giddy about it.  I’m helping people again!!!  And it feels so soul-soothingly wonderful, PINK, and totally SQUEE!!!  My soul absolutely moves every happy shade of PINK when I help my students be their awesometacular selves … with big, bright, shiny smiles and all!!!

I read an article this week about a Canadian woman who died in her fiance’s arms during the recent London attacks.  My heart gasps at what kind of horrible pain that must’ve been, and my thoughts, love, and intentions go out to her fiance, family, and friends, and all the people who are affected by yet again another horrific happening in the world.

I want to take a moment to remember this woman, as she will most certainly be missed along with her wonderful PINK spirit and all the help she gave to those in need around her.  Her name was Christine Archibald, and she was a “talented social worker and exceptional human being who inspired all who worked with her.”  She worked in a homeless shelter and she helped those in need.  She is remembered as a “bright light,” and we needed her.  The world needs so many more wonderful bright spirits willing to help, especially in these hard times, when so many are feeling lonely, isolated, lost, and depressed.

If you’d like to read more about Christine’s story, click here.  And if you feel so moved to help make your community a better place, #Chrissysentme will let the family know.  :0)

It starts with the smallest of things.  Our PINK hearts and smiles.  Hold a hand in need.  Be the ear for a friend or a stranger.  And hug your family.  Our community starts at home with our loved ones and our friends, and grows bigger from there.  Big Hearts my SQUEE-Peeps!  The world needs our bright, sunny, and SQUEE Big Hearts!!!

Love you,

Mary Kate :0)

Hi all you happy wonderful beautiful SQUEE-Peeps!!!!  Ecstatic Friday and start to a wonderful holiday weekend to you!!!  Pauli and I just got back from MI.  We were launching the opening of my new online learning and advising academy biz – The Best You PAL Academy.  We also went to a nephew’s wedding in Glen Arbor, MI near Traverse City and in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  We’d never been there, and if you’ve never been either … it’s a must-do!!!  It’s ridickerously beautiful!!!  The dunes are crazy high and the nature is absolutely lovely!  (I’m saving some pics for another post.) And lookie here what I snapped a picture of –  a HEART smack dab in the middle of the clouds.  That’s untouched by Photoshop.  That’s a real heart right up there in the sky … a beautiful blue sky clearing in the middle of a on-again-off-again stormy day.  When I saw it, I grabbed for my camera and started clicking away.  The clouds were moving at a fair clip, and the heart didn’t last very long.  I’m so glad I looked up at just the right moment!!!  :0)

This picture is of the East Arm Grand Traverse Bay!  The clouds made for an amazingly striking day!!!

Hope you enjoy!

Have a safe and happy weekend!!!

Love and Hugs and Silly Smiles,
