A Moment of Mindfulness: Be Encouraged 2

A Moment of Mindfulness:  Be Encouraged  2

I went to sleep one night and woke up to a different world. It’s been easy to maintain the ordered physical distance during my daily walks because my only companion is my reflection in the darkened windows of offices and shops. However, it’s been tough to watch the usually frisky neighborhood dogs walking their humans with gloomy, subdued steps. It’s like this mean old “invisible virus enemy” has stolen their spirits as it tries to take away our lives. But wait! This is a time where our memories can become useful weapons. Remember the fight of your life, the second…

Reflect, restore, and reposition with Brandon Cosby of OAR

Reflect, restore, and reposition with Brandon Cosby of OAR

JAIL is a result, event-driven, choice involved, power stripping, a visible shift. However, within the jail cell inside each inmate is the power of transformation. Transformation is process-driven, choice involved and resides internally. Opportunities, Alternatives & Resources, (OAR) is missioned to rebuild lives and create a safer community with opportunities, alternatives, and resources for justice-involved individuals and their families. OAR is a local non-profit restorative justice organization providing human services since 1971. Its history has its roots in the highest principles of human rights, and the most practical applications of a community’s enlightened self-interest and citizen action. Its origins can be…

Reflect, restore, and reposition with author Margery Leveen Sher

“America is an idea. It is a culture of tolerance. All different colors and religions can live in coexistence. All can contribute positively. This idea must be a leader in the world. This idea must be preserved. If anything happened to this idea, it would be very bad for the rest of the world.”—Zaheer Iqbal, immigrant from Pakistan Author Margery Leveen Sher sets the stage for our conversation in the following words. “This book tells some of the continuing stories of immigrants to our country. The American Dream is not dead, and it is certainly not a myth. It is…

A Moment of Mindfulness: We are isolated, but not alone.

A Moment of Mindfulness: We are isolated, but not alone.

Today we fight not one, but two enemies. The invisible pandemic enemy and the enemy within. We are stuck between our no longer and our not yet. Stuck looks and feels like anxiety, depression, anger, and emotional isolation. Stuck makes it hard to know who and how to trust. And yet, we are not defeated. We have individual thoughts and words, the most powerful weapons of all. What if we used their positive energy to wage war on the enemy within, the one few are talking about, our mental well being? Someone said, “The virus attacks the lungs, but we…

Reflecting, restoring, repositioning attitudes towards health as we age with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

Reflecting, restoring, repositioning attitudes towards health as we age with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

You exercise. You eat right. You’re in pretty good shape for someone your age. Still, getting older can bring on health problems as our bodies change. Not everyone will get them. But some medical conditions become more common or more serious after we get a few decades under our belts. Getting older can be a triple whammy. You lose muscle as you age. That makes it harder to keep the pounds from creeping up. You also become less active. At the same time, your body burns fewer calories for the same physical activities as when you were younger. You probably…

Hope reflected, restored, and repositoned with Meesh Peters and Tijani Musa.

Rob Bell in his 2016 book How to Be Here reflects, “That question the blinking line in your mind or on your mobile device asks is: Who are you to do this? can keep you locked up for years, living in fear and doubt, looking over your fence or your shoulder, comparing yourself with the people around you. But the first word about you is a gift, and you’re here and you’re breathing, and you get to take part in the ongoing and creation of the world. Creation is exhausting and exhilarating and draining and invigorating and it’s also a mystery…

Everyone has a story. Once upon a time with Naomi and Asa Nero

Everyone has a story. Once upon a time with Naomi and Asa Nero

We all know everyone has a story. However, I like to say everyone is a story. This month we are taking a closer look at our personal stories and the stories of those who have supported our becoming more. And, we are going to recognize the power of the stories that we tell ourselves. Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories “Telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for while food makes us live, stories are what make our lives worth living.” Isak Dinesen says, “To be a person is to have a story…

She Believes in Me: Encourage, Empower, Inspire with Founder Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

She Believes in Me: Encourage, Empower, Inspire with Founder Rene Gorman and Michelle Galliano

Contrary to the belief that this is a male-dominated world, women provide the foundation of power, grace, wisdom, justice, creativity, and hope. Throughout history, the world has witnessed many great women of strength who managed to tap into their Everyday Power to leave an indelible mark on society. However, it is important that there is a transfer of empowerment to the next generations. Actress Audrey Hepburn said, “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.” The…

Were it not for those who care with Dr. Ethel Canty Bothuel

Were it not for those who care with Dr. Ethel Canty Bothuel

This month we have been exploring the diversity found in the space called legacy; more specifically the legacy of caring and loving. We themed it “Were it not for Those Who Care and Who Have Cared”. Ever stop to think about those people? You know the ones… who especially encouraged you to keep on going when you had decided to stop; who gave when you couldn’t ask, who dried the track of your tears… and who said, “Yes you can!” They planted seeds for you to harvest immediately or later in your life.  They have magical timing…some stay for a…
