On a seemingly normal fall day, 5 years ago, in New York's Hudson River Valley, a nearly 1,000 pound tree limb struck me, breaking my neck and leaving me unconscious for days.
Over my multi-month recovery in New York and Massachusetts, I dealt with not only the traumatic accident, but also that my husband was living a double-life and my employer forced me to resign.The instant when this tree in the picture clobbered me and all that ensued, I call my When All Balls Drop moment. My juggling of career, marriage, and healthy lifestyle was forced to stop. It was through this reflection period that I found there was an upside to losing everything. I started by calling the 27th of every month Look Up Day, but it has morphed into a mantra that I call Looking Up!
In Honor of the 5th Anniversary, I Ask You to Do Me These 5 Favors...

4) Attend one of my events in FL, WI, Italy, Boston, or Kauai.
