What We Know Now, featuring author, educator, and inspirational speaker Lynnie Vessels

What We Know Now, featuring author, educator, and inspirational speaker Lynnie Vessels

This evening, our show theme is curated from our HUMAN LIBRARY catalog titled What I Know Now. You often hear me say everyone has a story. And you know, I also believe that everyone is a story. Each of our stories reflects a journey, not a destination, a process, not an event. We are continually moving, continually growing, continually becoming. As long as we breathe, the end of our story has not yet been written. That means we have opportunities to edit the plot of our story to reflect our physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional evolution. Author Maya Angelou   says,…

REWIND: A courageous conversation about the opioid crisis with Lucy Caldwell

REWIND: A courageous conversation about the opioid crisis with Lucy Caldwell

I want to open the door to a common thought space with some quotes from people who have walked into dark places and come up with dark solutions or who have loved others who have done so. I don’t know anyone who wakes up and say, “I want to be a criminal, I want to be homeless, or I want to be an addict. And yet sometimes the unlikely happens… Anonymous from Birmingham Alabama says: “I’m a good person. I’m a contributing member of society. I’m educated. I have a good job, make good money, have wonderful relationships with my…

Meet Dr. Tyler Nolting's Nashville team who are bending the arc by learning from history to help shape the future.

Some particular words to establish our common thought space today are offered by noted Karmic astrologer Dora Jones, and I quote: “Each of us comes into life with a promise, a gift, a passion, and a deep, heartfelt desire. The promise is not just a concept; it’s a journey of self-discovery. It’s what you have come to life to master, overcome, resolve, or heal some aspect of your consciousness. As you face your life’s experiences, you can fulfill this promise. Your responses to your experiences determine whether you fulfill or break the promise you have made to yourself. The gift…

Were it not for those who care, featuring Ron Riggins, Chairman of the Board, Catholic Charities of Arlington.

Were it not for those who care, featuring Ron Riggins, Chairman of the Board, Catholic Charities of Arlington.

There is a saying I read somewhere that stated, “if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together.” This journey called life seems necessarily codependent. What if you believed the most outstanding service you could offer in life is to be a light on the path? Your affirmation might say, “Today, I am devoted to shining the light of compassionate support and service on those who may be in need.” Since 1947, when it first opened its doors as an adoption and children’s service agency, Catholic Charities has served the needs of the…

Meet Patrick. “Patrick has autism and an intellectual disability. Until 2008, Patrick lived with his biological mother in Texas. She worked hard to ensure that Patrick had every opportunity to achieve his fullest potential. She socialized Patrick, taught him manners, and gave him basic skills. Sadly, after so many years of her life dedicated to the care and growth of her son, Patrick’s mother was tragically killed in an automobile accident. Patrick’s grandparents brought him to West Virginia following their daughter’s untimely death. While they were in good health, they were elderly and began looking for housing and care options…

“If man is to survive, he will have learned to take delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.” “A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on and licks it, or turns his back on it and starts to wither away.” “Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate but take a special delight in ideas…

Welcome to the Whimsical World of Mrs. Z featuring Caroline Zarinelli

Welcome to the Whimsical World of Mrs. Z featuring Caroline Zarinelli

The drive to do what you’re good at is instinct. It is what you were created to do. Human instinct in action is pure joy. It’s like a work of art in motion. Your instinct will draw you to the unique expression of your gifts. You can only be fruitful out of your own understanding of and connection with what is in your core.  It is the urging inside you that tells you to make your move now, to reach out now, to hold back until later, or to never give up. Instinct must merge with a purpose to give…

Iyanla Vanzant, Life Coach, and Author offers the following in her 2000 book Until Today. “Shhhh! Don’t tell that story again. Do not talk about how so many bad people wronged you.

Don’t utter another syllable about the pain and losses that have left you broken unless you are ready to recover right now. Stop!

“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 is Us featuring Author and Ted Talk speaker Michelle Petties, about Leaving Large Part 2

We continue discussing with Michelle Petties., her book, and the mentoring program about Leaving Large. “Life will work for me when I accept … The labels placed on me don’t always fit. With its structures, expectations, and divisions, society has fostered certain ideas about women that are not always flattering. Many people believe that strong women are not feminine and that assertive women cannot be trusted. My all-time favorite is that women who exhibit any degree of clarity about who they are and what they want are dangerous. Do not forget that a bossy woman is domineering, making her the…
