Be together, not the same. An inclusion and diversity conversation with CEO of Brigade of Mercy Ambreen Rizvi

Be together, not the same. An inclusion and diversity conversation with CEO of Brigade of Mercy Ambreen Rizvi

When I walk daily, I intentionally “unplug”. There is nothing on my body to indicate how many steps I have taken during my four-mile walk. I listen to the birds singing and ducks honking as they make love to spring. I notice new flowers in bloom. I am at peace. Yet sometimes, today, for instance, unwanted thoughts insert themselves as a result of something I heard on the news. Today it was the concept of “Othering.” I wouldn’t say I like it and I like even less the fact that it is being intentionally used in this season’s political lexicon.…

Imagine an organization that fuels its power through service above self. Join my conversation with Ms. Rene Laws, Rotary 7610 District Governor Elect

Imagine an organization that fuels its power through service above self. Join my conversation with Ms. Rene Laws, Rotary 7610 District Governor Elect

Over the past three years, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G has been intentionally curating thematic stories across generations, cultures, and genres. We are learning from and paying tribute to servant leaders, game-changing entrepreneurs, innovative organizations, planting seeds that yield precious harvests, and all who live “despite “rather than “because of.” These leaders and organizations have chosen SERVICE to heal themselves and the nation. Service as a way of lighting up the darkness. Tonight, we are hearing one voice out of 1.4 million members of a 117-year-old international organization called Rotary. Rotary has continued to grow itself into a position of…

REWIND: Unwrapping his gift of music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

REWIND: Unwrapping his gift of music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

A 2018 blog written by musicians who declare they believe in music says, “Music is simply a very special language that everyone understands. There is no feeling that cannot be described and transported through music. It preserves memories for eternity, turns dreams into reality. It caresses the soul or screams unmistakably. Music conquers fear, dries tears, gives courage and strength. It is the safe and expressive home of our emotions – with all facets between joy and pain, irrepressible lust for life, and thoughtfulness. Music can turn enemies into friends and cross borders. It can ensure that the injustices of…

Tapping into Joy featuring Deb Beroset, award-winning journalist, speaker, and seasoned PR expert.

Tapping into Joy featuring Deb Beroset, award-winning journalist, speaker, and seasoned PR expert.

Author and coach Iyanla Vanzant, in her 2000 book, Until Today, suggests, “If you are waiting for something to happen that will make you happy, you are killing off your joy. Joy comes through you. Happiness comes to you. If you seek your joy within, you will be happy, no matter what happens. It is easy to believe in more than what you can see when you know you will be protected, guided, and blessed. If you only believe what you can see around you, you may miss the blessings right under your nose. If you have and hold love…

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Do you go the extra mile? Do you do more than what is expected? Do you expect the best? These questions pertain not only to your relationship with the world but also to how you treat yourself. Do you go the extra mile when it comes to you, or do you think that the least is enough for you? Going the extra mile means taking what you have and looking for ways to expand it— you believe in your ability to make it happen. Going the extra mile means doing just a little more than is expected, being just a…

“We are in a time of new suns” says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

"We are in a time of new suns" says emergent startegist, Adrienne Maree Brown

“What a time to be alive,” Adrienne Maree Brown has written. “Right now we are in a fast river together — every day there are changes that seemed unimaginable until they occurred.” Adrienne Maree Brown and others use many words and phrases to describe what she does, and who she is: A student of complexity. A student of change and of how groups change together. A “scholar of belonging.” A “scholar of magic.” She grew up loving science fiction, and thought we’d be driving flying cars by now; yet, has found in speculative fiction the transformative force of vision and…

The blessing of life and legacy featuring Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessing of life and legacy featuring Karen and Cheyenne Harris

A legacy may take many forms – children, grandchildren, a business, an ideal, a book, a community, a home, or some piece of ourselves. Our legacy naturally intrigues us. Understandably, we would want to know how the world will remember us after we’re gone. How many of us will be surprised? How many of us live so that our legacy reflects all that we genuinely hold most near and dear? How many of us are living with integrity and courage? Leaving a legacy is a human need. It is, in part, selfish – we want to feel immortal. We also…

REWIND: What About the Children? Dr. Roz, Child and Family Therapist, Considers Their LandscapeToday

The challenge for us today is to be a lighthouse in the next generation’s lives. Be on the lookout for lost souls in this season of intense uncertainty and unrest. Be alert to those who may be in need and have nowhere to go or no way to get there. Be sensitive to children who are left out, leftover, or left behind. Be a lighthouse to a child. Show children protection and guidance. You don’t have to say much; just let the child know you are there should the need arise. Roselyn V. Baker-Black, affectionately known as Dr. Roz, has…

REWIND: Sweep in a new season with the courage to be vulnerable with Dr. Brene Brown and Krista Tippett from NPR

Spring is the season during which the natural world revives and reinvigorates after the colder winter months. During spring, dormant plants begin to grow again, new seedlings sprout out of the ground and hibernating animals awake. What are you doing to revive and reinvigorate your dreams, your soul, your mind? What script are you creating? Does it contain thoughts like “I am not enough!” or “I am more than enough!”? Are you stuck between your no longer and you not yet? Or are you willing to take new risks and experience the vulnerability that comes with it? Do you understand that…
