August News, Product and Client Spotlight!

Hi Disconnected Family and Friends

 

We hope you’ve been enjoying the lovely (and mild!) summer here in San Diego.  While you are out on your adventures and hanging with friends do you take time to look around you? Do you stop to smell the roses figuratively speaking? We live in a place where we are literally surrounded with beauty, in all forms: the beaches, the mountains, the fashion, the food and the people  (just walk around La Jolla for an afternoon, you’ll know what I’m talking about). It’s all so diverse and so aesthetically pleasing.

 

I have a theory that we sometimes “forget” what a unique and pretty wonderland it is that we get to call home, because the beauty is just so pervasive, we lose sight of it. In the psych world they call this “habituation,” a term that describes getting used to stimuli (i.e. the awesomeness that is San Diego) and then ignoring said stimuli leading to apathy (i.e. le dreaded hipster funk). Have you ever visited another part of the country only to realize what real seasons look like? And you think to yourself, “I’ve been so spoiled with San Diego, where every season is exactly the same…” Yeah it’s nice but it’s nice all year round! And so we get used to it all, the awesomeness and the beauty of San Diego, and we start to forget why we moved here in the first place, or what makes San Diego such a destination spot or why there are so many dang tourists everywhere with their cameras and map guides, and there is no place to park in PB by the beach! … But I digress.

 

Well this is your wake up call and an invitation to OPEN YOUR EYES! There is a lot to see and so much to appreciate all around us.  Take a cue from our little ones; kids are easy to please and they think everything they see and experience is groundbreaking.   Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could stoke that child-like curiosity once again within us?

 

I have some event recommendations for you this month to get happy and glad, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll find yourself giggling like a giddy schoolgirl at a sleepover!
