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…

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

During the pandemic, have you been feeling intimate with physical, mental, emotional uncertainty and unrest? It seems that everything that can be shaken is shaking, where noise, angry noise appears to be drowning out laughter and love. I found I have been grieving the loss of power over my thoughts, my movements, my expectations, my finances, my future, my everything. So, I created Moments of Mindfulness as an emotional and spiritual band-aide for the hurt we are collectively feeling. All of us at the table have permission to find the stillness that allows authenticity and vulnerability to rise above the noise. We are going…

Moments of Mindfulness: We are isolated, but not alone.

Moments 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…

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…

Chocolates after midnight with Jaleh Moslehi and Tyra G

Chocolates after midnight with Jaleh Moslehi and Tyra G

Life is an ongoing process. It is not made up of one event. Every time it rains, it stops raining. Every time we get hurt, we heal. After darkness there is always light- we are reminded of this every morning, but still, we can forget, and instead choose to believe that the night will last forever. It won’t.  Nothing lasts forever. I chose this month’s theme as Chocolates after Midnight, Midnight symbolizing the rain and chocolates symbolizing the rainbows in our lives. We are looking at ourselves and how we relate and respond to life’s seasons.   Every week this month,…

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia’s Lights

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia's Lights

I turn to our author and life coach, Iyanla Vansant to create our common thought space while we are together today. It was published in 2000 in her book Until Today. She begins with these questions: 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 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? There are people who believe that…

Thank you for your service then and now with George Bodie

Journalist and author Isabel Allende reminds us that  “We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” My goal is to provide information about, and exposure to, a diverse set of perspectives about war experiences that breed transformational leadership. We explore the impact on their family, necessary services provided, social, cultural, and political cohorts. In this podcast, you hear about transformational leadership from an  African American man, a veteran officer from…

Family redefined with the Praise Warriors and Script Hop 101

Family redefined with the Praise Warriors and Script Hop 101

Marriage and family are key structures in most societies. While the two institutions have historically been closely linked in U.S. culture, their connection is becoming more complex. The relationship between marriage and family is an interesting topic of study to sociologists. The question of what constitutes a family is a prime area of debate in family sociology, as well as in politics and religion. Social conservatives tend to define the family in terms of structure with each family member filling a certain role (like father, mother, or child). Sociologists, on the other hand, tend to define family more in terms…
