What Traditions Do You Love CPM?

Since I can remember my mom and I have always made the Oscars a fun fabulous party in our home. We would dress up, pick our winners, and make wonderful hors d’oeuvre’s and Oscar themed treats.

A CPM Community That Plays Together Stays Together …

This past weekend we had our first CPM Chrismtas Sweatsuit Bowling Party. It was a wonderful event with lots of laughs, fun, and relationship building. As I looked at the room, It was so nice to see people who work so hard day in and day out, talk, laugh and lighten up for an evening!

The next morning, Chris and I looked at pictures and video reminiscing about all the fun that was had and it made me think of how important “Fun” is to our lives! I have written that a community that plays together stays together, but it goes […] Read more

Something to THINK about…

Something to THINK about…

Recently received an email from a dear friend / member…

Came across this in the context of work (that is, client relationships), but it makes so much sense within the context of all relationships–including relationships with our own health! Had to share with someone who would appreciate it, and you are that person!

From Seth Godin’s blog on 3/27/2014: LINK

What if, in some sort of sci-fi solar flare cataclysm, it was impossible for humans to have more kids? No more babies.

How would we treat the last generation? Would we say to the youngest student on Earth, “sorry the school is really run-down […] Read more

Lesson from my trip to NYC…

Lesson from my trip to NYC…

New York City is crazy! The TALL buildings, LOUD noises (and people) the AMOUNT of places to see and food to enjoy is darn near infinite when you only have a few days.

It took my a day or two to get settled… And when I didn’t know what to do or where to go, NYC felt overwhelming, confusing and made me feel apathetic. I decided to do something so simple that ended up being a game-changer. I went to the information dude at the hotel (i.e. NYC Coach). After speaking with my ‘NYC Coach’ he gave me options I […] Read more
