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)


SQUEE Snaps in Michigan and Thank’n My Bright PINK Stars!

Mary Kate Kopec Happy Pics in Michigan

Hi All you wonderful beautiful happy SQUEE-Peeps!!!  Happy Friday!!!

As promised, here are a few snaps from my recent trip to MI.  Which one is your favorite?  :0)

Getting sunny snaps was a hit or miss as the weekend was mostly big rain clouds floating by.  So there’s a mixture of bright with some overcast, but for me, they were all a delight.  I just love the warm months in Michigan!!!  Looking forward to more and more!!!

As a personal little tidbit, if you knew me back in my twenties (what??? I’m not still in my twenties? … oh, how you make me gush!  LOL), you knew me as a happy, but determined, and even hard-as-nails, gonna-tackle-the-world student, researcher, and scientist.  My left brain was in charge, and it dominated.

But then I met Pauli and he sparked silliness, big time happiness, and laughter in me.  He got me outside … out of the lab … and he showed me that life didn’t always have to be work, work, work … serious, serious, serious.  And thank the bright PINK stars he did!!!

Over the years, I’ve picked up writing fiction and letting my right brain have a go.  And then I met Lena … a professional digital wizard as I call her, and the most wonderful digi-scribbler I know.  And she taught me I could be a digi-scribbler, too (except my skill is that of a 4 yr old – but still, it’s silly and fun and giggly-squee, so I’ll keep on, keepin’ on!).  And now I’ve picked up a camera!

Having fun, laughter, happiness, Paul, Lena, all of you, and letting my right brain breathe and be silly is most definitely what my life needed!  Thank’n my bright PINK stars, that’s for sure!

How do you let your right brain breathe (aka, what do you do for fun?)?

Happy Friday!!!  Happy Silly Smiles and Giant Squeezy Hugs!
