Soul Food for Friday May 4th, 2012

It’s Soul Food time again!

Considering a Soul-Filled Mother’s Day?

Join the Fourth Annual Mothers’ Day Fancy Dress Swim in Oceanside where 100 women will be swimming -though just dipping in works just fine- to help prevent malaria worldwide.

100% of each $5 donated, purchases an insecticide treated bed net and spares fellow moms around the world the agony of losing their babies to malaria.

After this powerful way to launch Mother’s day, spend the rest of the day getting thoroughly pampered knowing you have made an impact not just at home but for a complete stranger.

Note: Non-swimmers can simply donate if they prefer not to get wet.

This is organized by OneSanDiego.org and the coordinator is Marlaine Cover who can be reached by Cell: 760.803.0837 or by email Marlaine@Parenting2pt0.org

With that reset are YOU Ready for the Real Rules of life?

The greater the hiding the more the self-revelation…

We are brought up to believe a certain set of rules: The early bird gets the worm. Slow and steady wins the race. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Good things happen to good people. Keep your faith, work hard, and all your dreams will come true. But then we grow up. We learn that life isn’t really fair. There are no fairy godmothers, and not everything works out in the end, no matter how good we have been or how hard we’ve tried.

Why, then, are these myths perpetuated? Because clichés and over-simple recipes for living provide a soothing way to manage our daily lives without confronting the harsh reality that some parts of our lives are out of our control.

For several decades, local expert and my friend – Ken Druck has been willing to stand up and write about what we have hidden from ourselves for so long: we need to confront life as it is, not as we want it to be.

We cannot magically wish things into reality. We cannot expect happiness or success to manifest from daily affirmations. By embracing the real rules of life, we discover life’s terms and learn to balance them with our own, preventing costly psychological debts and developing the life skills, underlying wisdom, and emotional freedom essential for fuller, richer lives.

Ken’s new book will resonate with what readers know to be true about how life really is. Readers will discover themselves in vibrant teaching stories from the front lines of Dr. Druck’s pioneering work with individuals, families, communities, leaders, and cutting-edge organizations. They will push the refresh button on long-held myths and limitations, turning them into empower truths, redirecting their lives in much more effective and purposeful ways, and reinvigorating the pursuit of their dream.
