We evolved from the concern of two Panhellenic-minded      women witnessing the best and most outstanding High          School girls not being informed or prepared for sorority       recruitment, commonly called Rush 

       We prepare our college-bound young women for their 
       higher education in so many other ways – we think it is    
       necessary to help prepare them for the best 
       in social networking Rush!

                         We know that knowledge is power!

Positive Mindfulness!

by Pat Grant on 03/13/16

There seems to be a new buzz word out there among people in all walks of life. Mindfulness... in simple terms, it has to do with being in the moment. It seems we are a society of multi-taskers. Are we doing so many things at one time that we are not really paying attention to what we are doing? This conjures up images of a person going around and around in circles. A never ending cycle to the daily treadmill. Between technology demands, and teens thinking that texting is actually having a conversation, are we evolving into a people who can not be content with just one-person-to-one-person conversation and interface? I am not a cynic, (someone who has negative opinions about other people and about the things people do; especially; a person who believes that people are selfish and are only interested in helping themselves.).
However, lately I have experienced some technological challenges, (as evidenced in this "stalled" website, which is now still in the process of cautiously being upgraded, but functioning once again) but I don't think it has jaded me to technology!  However, there are those who are jaded to positive mindfulness and thought processes. The Nay-Sayers, or as I like to call them the Negative Nillies...they are the cynics of the world. In this political year we are bombarded with them everywhere! How can you find any peace and contentment in that atmosphere? No, I don't think you run from the issues. I just think you need to be mindful (there is that word again)... mindfulness in what words are coming our of you mouth, that can never be "taken back." Once spoken, how do you stop them from resonating in your ears? Mindfulness in what actions you are taking. Once a decision is made and done, can it be reversed? Face it, all of the Negative Nillies of the world can overload your thought process, if you let them. Don't embrace them and their dark cloud of influence.
Isn't is better to find the graciousness and kindness in the world? Isn't it true you find what you seek? If you look for the negative in the world, it is there. If you look for the positive and kindness in the world, it is there too! It is a choice! No, I am not "Pollyanna" and no, I am not wearing "rose-colored" glasses. I am flawed, horribly flawed, and so are my dear friends, but don't we accept our friends, "warts and all?' Again, it is a choice! I mindfully make my choice to be positive! So I am celebrating positive mindfulness!
And with that being stated, I invite you all to attend my last Spring Workshop for 2016, April 10th, Sunday afternoon 3-5 at the 'Emmet O'Neal library, I promise it will be a positive experience! Email or PM us on Facebook if you want more details. We already have several people pre-registered! It should be a positive experience, and hopefully you will find it mindfully uplifting!
And more positive things have been in our mist lately. Recently I was contacted by Dorm Décor, and Swoozies to venture into some mutual advantages for our clients. Those should start to manifest themselves at our April 10th workshop! It is exciting to think about these new relationships!
Also, another positive event, I have the distinct privilege of being the keynote speaker for Potential Magazine's overview of Greek life and the recruitment process on college campuses! That is April the 19th in Montgomery, Alabama. Potential Magazine is the publication headed and edited by Pam Mashburn. Pam and her crew are apt at educating parents and high schoolers on the prep process for college entrance. They navigate everything from applications, being admitted, scholarships, and beyond!  I am honored to be a small part of what promises to be a positive and informative day!
Stay positive folks!
All the best from Rushbiddies! Pat
