Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

 “The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to…

Moments of Mindfulness: “Love in Action” with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR’s Krista Tippett

Moments of Mindfulness: "Love in Action" with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR's Krista Tippett

First  Corinthians 13: 4-8 says “Love is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. … Love never ends”. Wikipedia says, “Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”; and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, and egotism, Author Glennon Doyle Melton expresses love as a message from God, and I quote:  “When you were born, I put a piece of me in…

Moments of Mindfulness: Daddy, where are you?

Moments of Mindfulness: Daddy, where are you?

Did you look under PROTECTION,  adjacent to PROVIDER, close to KEEPER OF THE REMOTE CONTROL, disguised as  SANTA CLAUS, within YOUR HEART? However, sometimes Daddy can only be found in a WARM, LOVING, and SPECIAL MEMORY. He moves around a lot. He has a lot to do when he is about his work. He hurts when you hurt, finds joy in your laughter, and wishes you all the blessings you deserve. He will answer to Daddy, Poppo, Pops, Dad, Papa, and even “Bald Mommy”. Whoever plays the role and earns the title of a father in your life is a…

Moments of Mindfulness: “And They Call it Puppy Love”

Moments of Mindfulness: "And They Call it Puppy Love"

Inspired by the pandemic crisis, this 1970s love song title means something fun and new to me. About two months ago I fell in love. It was sudden and it was powerful. His cuteness came into view about a half a block away. I stooped down on one knee and whispered loudly, “Are you a Westie?” I knew Puppy Otis heard me because he immediately began to run to me, dragging his humans out of their leisurely walk. Puppy Otis panted as he ran, “There is Miss Tyra! She looks like she needs a hug, and I have one. I…

Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Moments of Mindfulness: Everybody has one, many of us are.

Although motherhood related celebrations have existed for thousands of years, it was President Woodrow Wilson in 1914 who officially designated the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day in the United States. Mother is our first intimate relationship, first friend, and teacher. She is created with special powers. She has eyes in the back of her head, can hear through walls, and can catch us before we fall. Her love is the launchpad for all kinds of promise. “Super-her-o” mother understands what her children do not say, makes a scraped knee better with a kiss, and gives hugs that last…

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…

I love it when I get together, courageous enough to look and walk beyond words. Giving each other permission to expose gifts of imperfection without judgment.

Sowing Seeds of Service above Self with Meesh Peters

To establish a common thought space for our time together today, I turn once again to author and coach Iyanla Vanzant in her 2000 book, Until Today And I quote: “The greatest service I can offer is standing confidently in my power. It does not serve you or the world for you to behave as if you are powerless. You are gifts. You have the gift of intellect. You can think yourself into and out of any situation with you are confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself. Encourage yourself. Teach yourself!…
