Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate is an excellent metaphor for life. It’s rich, full of energy, and joyful to the senses. It also represents some of the struggles in life: guilt, complexity, and unrelenting desire for more. Midnight is the transition from one day to the next, a point in time. Today, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G invites all listeners to Chocolate after Midnight. Each time we share Chocolate after Midnight, we walk out of judgment and into a space of acceptance. We walk out of fear and into a place where “impossible” is merely a word to describe the degree of difficulty. Here…

From convict to star citizen, a courageous conversation with Helenia Bragg.

From convict to star citizen, a courageous conversation with Helenia Bragg.

This story deserved a rewind. We all have times or seasons when it requires courage to make it from one moment to the next; to take the next step or to say the next word. And sometimes we let fear, shame, and guilt demonize our potential to overcome. What we discovered is that the ability to have a courageous conversation is often a process, a journey, not an event. It doesn’t always happen when it logically should; sometimes you have to grow into it.  And sometimes courageous conversations happen in and stay in our heads… or our hearts. Sometimes our…

What story do you tell yourself when the White House calls?

What story do you tell yourself when the White House calls?

This month’s theme, “Stories We Grew up with,” expands our appreciation of who we have become due to the stories we have been told and the ones we have told ourselves growing up. We look at how these stories have impacted our thoughts, our dreams; ultimately, I believe everyone has a story and is a story. Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories, “telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for a while, food makes us live; stories are what make our lives worth living.” Isak Dinesen says, “To be a…

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

Legacy is about life and living. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. The world isn’t connected only by molecules. It’s connected by stories, traditions, memories, hopes, and dreams. We are connected by the legacies passed down from those who came before us and the legacies we will pass down to those who come after us. English writer Dorothy Sayers, “Paradoxical as it may seem, to believe in youth is to look backward; to look forward, we must believe in age.” Today I have two guests that present legacy through different lenses.…

Legacy is for the living with father and son Courtney and Asa Nero

Legacy is for the living with father and son Courtney and Asa Nero

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 says, “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built, or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way, so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. Dara Horn says. “Every person has a legacy. You may not know what your impact is, and it may not be something that you can write on your tombstone, but…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

Women's History Month Celebrates Michelle Obama

It’s March, National Women’s History Month when we intentionally recognize the ongoing great contributions women have made to our nation. Frankly Speaking with Tyra G is celebrating this month with a twist. We are looking at phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, our rainbows and clouds, and our courage and resolve. We are a journey, not a destination; a process, not an event. Even when we are still, we are motion; loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love and love does. But sometimes, sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar,…

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

Women’s History Month Celebrates Nikki Giovanni, Poet Extraordinaire

In her own words, “We had music growing up, 78RPM’s that evolved into 45RPM’s and, always, the radio.  The radio in my day, Black and white, played everything.  Gospel Spirituals, even some opera when Leontyne Price came along.  You could listen to R & B late at night or you could go to the other station and listen to popular music.  There was also jazz if the wind was right.  I feel so sorry for the kids who only hear one kind of music.  Where do your dreams come from? My dream was not to publish or to even be…

Women’s History Month Celebrates the Fact That Truth is of No Color

Women's History Month Celebrates the Fact That 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…

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Moving Forward with Patricia Borowski District 7610 Governor Elect

Rotary Opens Opportunities Through Service: Moving Forward with Patricia Borowski District 7610 Governor Elect

Patricia is a symbol of Rotary’s transforming commitment to diversity and inclusion. Women join the senior leadership ranks. It has been a process, not an event. Consider some of the journey’s highlights: 1987 On 4 May, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Rotary clubs may not exclude women from membership on the basis of gender. Rotary issues a policy statement that any Rotary club in the United States can admit qualified women into membership. Sylvia Whitlock, of the Rotary Club of Duarte, California, becomes the first female Rotary club president. 1989 At its first meeting after the 1987 U.S. Supreme Court…

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

I echo the words of author and coach Iyanla Vanzant in her 2000 book, Until Today for her view of service. 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 can think yourself into and out of any situation with which you are confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself. Encourage yourself. Teach yourself! Correct yourself. That is power. You have a heart. Through it, you can experience…
