|My notes from the IIN conference, day 1 (top) and day 2 (bottom).|
I'm old-school and still write my notes by hand.
But, as the cliche goes, I took what I liked, and left the rest behind. As you can see in the photo above, I took lots of notes. But if I were to sum up the weekend, the over-arching message I kept hearing was BE YOURSELF, and have ALIGNMENT among all aspects of your life. In other words, be yourself, and live your message. That, my friends, I can and will do. :-)

The other conference attendees I met that weekend were all amazed that I flew to New York from San Francisco. And while attending the conference is part of my reason to fly across the country, I also do it so that I can visit my friends and family that live in Manhattan. This time I stayed with one of my cousins, who lives just three blocks from the conference location (score!). Having a short walk to and from was fantastic for this cold-weather wimp. I also was able to visit another cousin across the river in Hoboken, have a yummy organic, vegetarian dinner with good friends from high school, and I got to see my sister three times (including one dinner that was just us).
And so, my complaints fell aside and I left New York full of love and inspiration. Love for myself, those close to me, my clients, as well as our world and all beings that are a part of it. And inspiration to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be in this moment, and to share that with the world. To that end, I am full of gratitude that you're here, reading my recipes and musings on Zwick's Picks. Thank you!
