No real introduction needed today…let’s get right to the point.
Everyone has a story.
I am Mark Brodinsky and this is The Sunday Series.
The Sunday Series: The Book!
To love. To serve. To care. To share your story.
Many of the stories are about to be part of a book, we are just a few days away from publishing: The Sunday Series with Mark Brodinsky. Real Stories of Courage, Hope & Inspiration, Volume I.
Why do it? Why not.
The Sunday Series is a labor of love – an opportunity to allow others to share their journey, using me as the vessel, through my own gifts and talents, to turn lives and the challenges of those lives into stories which resonate with the world. These are stories of courage, hope and inspiration. The reality is nearly every life story can be defined in this manner. If you are living, then you are giving – so why not give it all? Give it all away. The world wins, we win, when you share.
So many have shared. At the time of this writng there are 146 Sunday Series and Volume I is a compilation of many of the first 50 stories on this blog.
It all began back on October 13th, 2013, with Marci Scher asking me to share her family’s story with the world. Marci and Brian Scher were facing the very real challenges of caring for their son Ian, living with a terminal illness. Their story, was and is, an inspiration to us all. Without Marci’s request, the Sunday Series does not exist. From that day forth, and nearly each and every Sunday since, I have shared stories of courage, hope and inspiration on this blog.
We all hoped for a different outcome for Ian, but it was not to be. He lost his courageous battle against his rare motor neuron disease in September of last year. The Sunday Series Volume I, is dedicated to his memory. The superhero inspiration he provided, and that of the Scher family, lives on in our everyday lives and in the pages of the book.
So many stories: Traci Kodeck and her dedication and drive to become a single mother in Soul Purpose, Penny Kinkade moving her family forward the best she can after the sudden loss of her husband Grant in Never Be Alone, Jen Drucker and her desire to openly speak about her daughter Cassie and the challenges of autism, in Unconditional, Debbie Fink and her courageous battle against a rare cancer, in All In for Life, Ivelisse Page spearheading a clinical trial which could change the world, in Believe Big, Tim Kenney and his journey back from a near-fatal collision, The Rain, The Pain, The…Gain, Richard Mosca dedicating his life to help those dealing with mesothelioma, in A Man of Good Hope, Tami Bensky keeping her husband’s legacy alive, through Larry’s Ride, Lesley Bogash changing lives and changing bodies, including her own, in Wealth is Health and even my own struggle with a speech impediment which defined more than two decades of my life, in Speechless.
These and so many other stories make up the pages of The Sunday Series, Volume I.
Let’s be honest about something – there is no one on this planet who wakes up every day and the story of their life is, everything’s fine. The next day: everything’s fine. The day after: everything’s fine.
Who would want to read a story like that? No one. It would bore us to tears. There are no true, bold lives like this. Though we all desire happiness, joy and peace, the reality of truly living your life is that is not possible. Certainly not every single day of our lives. What you and I face and embrace in a life truly lived, creates a story everyone wants to hear, because every story is unique and different. Your journey is the tale – from birth to death – and all of the stops along the way. Don’t tip-toe to that destination, create footsteps that are loud, deep and leave a lasting imprint. Make a dent in the universe.
Knowing that the reaper is coming, could be at your doorstep at any moment, you don’t know when – should inspire you to live your biggest and truest self. You can’t beat the reaper by living longer, you can only beat the reaper by living your life well and the to the fullest. Don’t take any of it with you…leave it behind for all of us to benefit.
The reality is nearly ever person’s life is an inspiration to each and every one of us. The person living it might not think it to be – but the reality speaks differently. This is the point of The Sunday Series.
The Sunday Series with Mark Brodinsky. Real Stories of Courage, Hope and Inspiration, Volume I, will be published in the next few days. I’ll let you know when. I hope you will support the cause as well. In dedication to Ian Scher, 20% of all proceeds from the book will be donated to Global Genes, a non-profit dedicated to helping with the challenges of families dealing with rare diseases.

Look for the book announcement in the coming days.
Until next time thanks for taking the time,
Write. Speak. Inspire.
