Gal Pals, Sisters and Girlfriends

The Golddiggers of Rat Pack fame celebrate life and strike a pose! From left to right: Susan Buckner, Deborah Pratt, Maria Lauren (Alberici Sisters), Linda Eichberg (Alberici Sisters), Marie Peck, Patti Gribow, Peggy Gohl and Darlene Cianci (Alberici Sisters).

When girlfriends celebrate together, it is pure joy! My girlfriends are a colorful bunch of personalities as we tap into our inner diva which touches on the divine!

We have a history together, starting as singers and dancers on the Dean Martin Show. We were just babes!

  • Sneak a peek at our book on Amazon! Beyond Our Wildest Dreams tells of our escapades during the golden age of show business when the Rat Pack and Elvis ruled the Las Vegas strip!

Through the years, we worked and played together and in between, we lived life, broke-up with boyfriends, got married, got divorced, had babies, watched them grow, applauded their achievements and watched them get married. Such was this occasion. My sister’s daughter, Lindsay was getting married! It was a grand affair partying with my dear friends and family too!

It’s so important to have people in your life that have witnessed your ups and downs and are there for you as you turn the page of another chapter.  I found you just can’t beat sharing your life story with sisters, girlfriends and gal pals! For that, I’m truly grateful.

Start today and call a girlfriend or sister to pal around, with, have lunch, go shopping, go to the movies, go dancing, drink wine, exercise together or just talk. Texting doesn’t count! 😉

Have a blessed life and share it with a friend,

Maria Lauren, AKA Maria Elena Alberici

Thriving

“A good day is thriving at work and play while discovering the natural balance and breath of well-being.”

– Maria Lauren (Maria Elena Alberici – Riccio)

 

On this day, I was blessed to be able to walk on the beach before driving to work, where I teach a variety of exercise classes at Kaiser Permanente. This is not my regular routine, so I took a selfie to remind myself of this day. 🙂

“We are committed to improve and maintain our members’ total well-being—mind and body—because we understand that being healthy is not just about living, it’s about living well.” – Kaiser Permanente

Nurturing your mind and nourishing your body is important.

I have found that focusing on gratitude helps to deter my mind from worries and the disappointments of life.

A spiritual nurturing and nourishing includes a daily communication with God.

Gods creations, the beauty of nature and the lovely kindness of people inspire me. This reminds me of the characteristics of God’s own nature.

Opening my heart to the Holy Spirit helps me get through days when I have no ‘get up and go.’

My family and friends, as well as my colleagues and patients at work give me a sense of belonging, caring, giving and receiving. 🙂

 

At Kaiser Permanente, we promote wellness within our company and to our clients. It isn’t healthy to sit at a desk for too many hours. Make it a habit to get out of your chair to move your body, your blood, muscles etc. When you take this much-deserved exercise break, you improve brain functions with a renewed sense of energy and perspective.

Get up off your chair and walk! Exercise and be more productive!
