It's with great excitement that I share... Joe and I are expecting! Baby GIRL Lombardi is due this summer and we can't wait to meet her!
One of my very good friends and colleagues, Emily, experienced an interaction with two homeless people last fall that was incredibly touching. In NYC, we walk past the homeless time and time again and for some, they become invisible. Let's remember that they too, are people who are capable of love and need compassion. Next time you encounter a homeless person, acknowledge them when they speak to you. Even if you don't have a dollar to give them, let them know. Trust me, they appreciate just a simple answer. This story will touch your heart.
As someone who's always trying to see the world through a compassionate, optimistic lens, I'm excited to start a new series showcasing random acts of kindness featuring heart warming stories that show the love and kindness in the world. I don't know about you, but I despise watching the news. The mainstream media typically likes to exaggerate and exhaust any story that showcases sadness, violence and horror just to get people to tune in for ratings. It's sickening. Living in a world of terror, it's important to remember, that we're also still living in a world of love. I invite you, my readers, to also submit your random acts of kindness stories via email as I'd love to spread the word!
I was hesitant to share this with you since it's so personal, but I think now, as I begin my Health Coaching practice, is a good time and I couldn't be more aware and grateful than I am today. I've been asked time and time again by friends, family and you guys, my readers, about the spiritual journey I've been on for the past year. The answer is that it's exactly what makes most find God or seek a higher purpose, an obstacle, or as I now like to look at it, a transformation.

It's no secret that we live in a world that constantly reminds us – we're not enough – pretty enough, young enough, smart enough, skinny enough... and the list goes on. After we get through the personal battle of confidence and self worth, we're faced with the idea that we don't have enough – time, money, love, opportunity. But when is enough, enough?
