Kimberlie Dykeman Takes a Bite out of NYC

From the minute she landed in New York, Kimberlie Dykeman took in fabulous new experiences every chance she could!  It began with a trip to the General Motors Building to join the crowds at a taping of CBS’s The Early Show…  Dykeman not only shook hands of the fabulously friendly anchors, she also garnered some serious camera-time for the cover of her book, Pure Soapbox, and  handed off a copy to the producer.  Just in case they needed a great guest to motivate their viewers in the New Year!

Dykeman stayed at the swanky SoHo Grande Hotel, dined at Lure and  Megu and took in the amazing contemporary West-Side Story-esque musical, In the Heights, at the Richard Rogers Theater.    A junket into Greenwich Village was distracted by the annual SantaCon celebration, where Dykeman asked not ONE but TWO Santas for a few Christmas gifts!   IMG_0283  IMG_0278 

 

 

 

 And a fabulous meeting with a top executive at the Discovery Network inched the TV Host and producer even closer to that ONE HUGE WISH LIST ITEM …of a talk show on the newly launching Oprah Winfrey Network!  After all Discovery and OWN are officially partners for life, now; and it’s about time Kimberlie Dykeman and the SOAPBOX brand hit the Big Time to motivate the masses!

Remember. Respect. Re-ignite. Relish your future.

Memorial Day is an incredibly moving day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.  For generations, our peers, partners, pals and parents have stood with dignity, integrity and the uttermost courage to make the United States of America what it is today: a land of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  I challenge you to set your political party preferences aside and simply let this thought sink in.  It’s not about what did right or wrong; should or shouldn’t have done; will or won’t do.   It’s bigger than that, folks.  Purposefully join together to honor those who gave their all for our collective rights, and simply pay mindful appreciation to all you have, all you get to do each day, and all your future might just hold.  Your memories are the magic of life.  Cherish them, share them…and make more!          – KD

 “What you memorize, you memorialize.”     – Anonymous   (often credited to ND Walsch, author)

Whether your first sweetheart’s phone number, your favorite song, or big acceptance speech, you’ve chosen to etch these things into your mind for timely safe-keeping.  Yet years later, buried convolutions release their imprints your call, and elicit surprising delight.  But it’s not the content, nor the fact that you remember it verbatim that elates your spirit.  Instead, your smile, laugh and peaceful pause for reflection evolve from the unfolding of the celebration surrounding such snippets.  When you commit anything to mind, you emphasize its importance to your heart.  Honor the influential people, places, experiences, and messages that graciously fill your moments and pay tribute to yourself by tapping the enlightening power of those memories.
