Summer is…

Posted on General, Parenting May 28, 2020 by Mary George

Summer is…
a bit different this year. Our plans of camps and trips are changing daily. The typical excitement and chant of “school is out” has changed to a giant parental sigh of “what now.” If there is a light in all of this, it is the resiliency and hope from our kids. Our Spring Zoom Class had girls from all over, and every time we finished that class their positivity for a better tomorrow lifted our spirits. It reminded us that they are okay and therefore we will be too. Our incredible Senior Workshops with the young women from St. Mary’s in Raleigh, NC also helped us reflect and remind us of finding the joy in journey. (THANK YOU ST. MARY’S!!)
While all of our children miss their friends, they are rising up and finding their way. They are enjoying the time spent baking, giving back to others, making frisbee golf courses in the backyard, movie nights, growing their gardens and just being. So try to take in their joy and be present with them. ☀️

**My Remarkable Self is available to give private workshops, school/camp workshops/assemblies and classes for parents, students, educators and businesses. Please contact us at for further information.**

Why we do what we do…

“When nothing is sure, everything is possible.” -Margaret Drabble

Why we do what we do…

In these crazy times we all need a boost, a bit of hope, and even a reminder that what we do matters. Thank you to the parents and schools who support us and the girls who continually inspire us!

“Thanks again for hosting these calls for our girls in this really remarkable time. I was sitting in the other room working and couldn’t help overhearing the discussion and crying over the big feelings these little girls have. But listening to them talk and come together and overcome these feelings was a humble reminder that they are role models for each other – and for myself as well. Thank you so much for being there for them!”
