Life Lessons from Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel with Skinny Girl Margaritas - Yum!

I have a secret… Somewhere, way, deep, deep down, in my heart of hearts, I believe that Bethenny Frankel and I are soul-mates. Given the opportunity for a chance meeting, I know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that we would quickly and forever bond over our many shared interests: fashion, yoga, cocktails, and of course, our families. My new BFF and I would chit-chat late into the night like long-lost old friends, all the while sipping Skinny Girl Margaritas, my convenience cocktail of choice, which I discovered this past summer on holiday in Healdsburg, Sonoma County, California (the heart of wine country), when the thought of another Zinfandel, as delicious as they are in those parts, just didn’t cut it. Ahhh, the Skinny Girl over ice, savoured while sitting in the sun with the Russian River floating by… But I digress. Anyone who has read my blog in the past knows that I have been absentee over the past year or so. I took on a part-time contract – you know, a day-job, career-oriented kinda’ thing – that ballooned into something all encompassing. I have lost all balance. No writing. No yoga. Sadly, no fun. But then, just the other day, like a beacon calling to me from out of the blue, I received an email from…you guessed it….Bethenny Frankel! Okay, not her exactly, but someone in her PR camp. And because of our destined-to-be-friends-forever-starting-someday-in-the-not-too-distant-future relationship, I thought I would pass the link they sent me along to all of you. It reminded me not only to find a little time for yoga, but for all of those things I love that I have let slide, like this blog. So please, pour yourself a glass of Skinny Girl and check out the following link, and then step away from the computer, like I plan to do, and go do something for yourself that you haven’t done in far too long. http://www.everydayhealth.com/fitness/bethenny-frankels-secrets-to-staying-fit.aspx
