James’ Crossing

James’ Crossing


James’ Crossing is a late eighteenth century nostalgic tale of one man’s life adventure, from his first steps onto the new world to his various crossings through life and land as one of America’s early pioneers. James Sterling, a Scotsman forced into service to the English Navy, jumps ship and dares to pursue whatever comes his way in the deep south of a newly formed United States. Written in the genre of historical fiction, the story is loosely based on the life of an ancestor of the author, Dr. Frances Sterling Ellis, who at the time of publishing is 93 years old. Remarkably, the author is only three generations removed from the title character himself. Fleeing the English, and having an idea what would become of him as an unwilling British soldier, Sterling risks life and limb to escape his captors by jumping overboard at his first glimpse of land in the new world. During his crossing in the frigid waters of the ocean from the ship to his new life, Sterling realizes that surviving in this strange new wilderness will not be easy. He would have to adapt quickly to dangers he could never have imagined back in Scotland. Sterling regains consciousness on a deeply forested shore, hungry, thirsty, and exhausted. He finds himself surrounded by dark-skinned, strangely dressed men he had only heard of when he visited the pub back at home. He manages to befriend the natives of this curious new existence, learning not only survival skills, but new trades he would never have thought himself pursuing. The men he meets in this new place are as sturdy and able as the best he had known in his childhood. Sterling finds himself crossing again into one new existence after the other. Life is anything but stagnant and predictable here. Almost as hard to navigate as the cruelness of struggling to find food and shelter is the empty loneliness of having no one to share in his hardships, and the realization that he will never know the comfort of his beloved Scotland again. Eventually, Sterli

Weekend Roundup: Inauguration Into The Unknown

This week a whole nation was inaugurated into the unknown. We don’t know what Donald Trump will do once in the White House. But we do know how he got there. Everyone of good faith must hope that the new president will succeed in his promised aim of lifting up the left behind, which the political establishment he ousted could not do. Yet, anyone with the slightest sense of history must also worry how his path to power will define what he does with it.

The debasement of the democratic discourse introduced during Trump’s election campaign and since has already inflicted damage that cannot be easily undone. The level of xenophobic demonization of the world outside and enemies within, like his impulsive invective unleashed against even marginal critics, has been unprecedented for any presidential candidate in memory. Perhaps most dangerously, his effort to delegitimize any media, and even denigrate official intelligence agencies, won’t play along with his fast and loose use of facts or distortion of reality aims to make all information suspect. In this Orwellian universe, truth then becomes only what the self-anointed tribune of the people, speaking on their behalf, declares it is.

Fortunately, the Trump electoral mandate fell far short of a majority in a country that has a more diverse and pluralistic civil society than other times and places (such as 20th century Europe) where demagogues have risen to power. Robust cultural resistance will be part and parcel of the Trump years. Whole swaths of the nation, even entire states like California, will stand up and push back. Several polls already show that there is more popular opposition than support for Trump as he enters office.

Outside the U.S., concerns abound over what the new president will do next. Angst is probably the greatest south of the border, in Mexico. In grappling with Trump, Sergio Muñoz Bata advises Mexico to look back to its proud history of standing up to the “colossus of the north.” James Zogby predicts that if Trump follows through on his promise to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it “would ignite a spark that would set the region aflame.” Writing from Australia, Helen Clark says the possibility of an American retreat from Asia and rising tensions in the South China Sea are putting the region on edge.

Nick Robins-Early interviews an independent Russian journalist who says Russian media coverage of Trump is so sympathetic, “it’s getting bizarre.” Peter Wittig, German ambassador to the U.S., asserts that we need a robust transatlantic alliance more than ever to counter terrorism, deal with Russia and create growth and jobs. 

Within the U.S., Juan Escalante, an undocumented immigrant, lays out his emergency plan in case the Trump administration tries to deport his family. A Pakistani Muslim immigrant whose visa is up for renewal this summer, Mahira Tiwana tells us that despite feeling “other” in Trump’s America, she is not ready to give up on the “American dream” yet. Sina Toossi worries that Iranian-Americans will lose the voice they gained under Obama and that the Iran nuclear deal will be dismantled, worsening U.S. relations with Iran.

Richard Eskow addresses Americans who voted for Trump because they felt left behind, saying Trump will let them down and that then, the working class should create a “grand alliance,” as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. advocated. Filmmaker Ethan Coen pens a Dr. Seuss-style poem about Trump, saying, “He’ll change some people used to say / Calm down after Election Day / But Putin and the KKK knew / Trumpet always be that way.”

Jon Deutsch suggests the plus side of a Trump presidency could be the disruption of a political system that is long overdue for reform. Ivan Eland argues the U.S. intelligence community ― comprised of 17 huge agencies that don’t communicate effectively ― needs a shake-up, and Trump― who criticized intelligence officials after the release of reports about Russians hacking the election ― may make it happen. Howard Fineman reflects on Obama’s legacy, maintaining that his presidency worked “moderately well in domestic affairs, less well in the world … is likely to be regarded more as transitional than transformative … and … feels oddly more like the end of an era than the beginning of the one he promised.”

As Obama and his world order said goodbye, this week also saw China’s President Xi Jinping looking to fill a global power gap. Xi became the first Chinese president to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, and he gave a speech with strong messages on globalization and climate change. Jane Cai and Frank Tang responded to his presence at the summit, writing, “With choking smog, a weakening currency and a widening wealth gap at home and a fragmented global capitalist system abroad, President Xi Jinping is determined to take advantage of an elite forum to assure the world that China is doing fine and is ready to help pull the world together.” From Beijing, Akshay Shah and Carole Bernard paint another picture, sharing charts they made using new data that show warning signs that China could be headed for a financial crisis.

In a WorldPost feature, Danielle Mackey reports from San Salvador that a U.S. program meant to help Central American refugees is leaving most in danger. Saskia Sassen contends global firms and local elites who take land from farmers are partly to blame for skyrocketing violence in Central America. Edward Alden explains why, if Trump wants good jobs and investment, he needs to shape rules for foreign investment competition to avoid a race to the bottom in wage, consumer and environmental standards. From Helsinki, Heikki Hiilamo explores the potential of Finland’s new program testing out basic income for unemployed citizens. “As the world begins to see the impacts of globalized society with the elections of new leaders ― including Mr. Trump ―” he writes, “the answer to the fears of declining economies may just be a basic income system.”

Finally, our Singularity series this week looks at how cellular reprogramming boosted the lifespan of mice by 30 percent.

Ten Simple and Unexpected Ways to Boost Happiness

What are some small ways to boost happiness in everyday life? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Raj Raghunathan, Professor of marketing and happiness expert at UT Austin, on Quora:

I once surveyed my students to make a list of three small things that make them feel happy after watching this video. Here’s the Top Ten list from that survey:

Note that not all of them will work equally well for you, so you need to figure out which ones work best:

1. Engage in vigorous physical activity.

The next time you need a mood-boost, try this out: go for a long run or play a game of basketball. Now, what counts as a long run for you may be a mere walk in the park for me (it’s more likely to be the reverse), but the point is that the activity needs to be vigorous enough get your heart pumping and your mind distracted from your negative ruminations. If you are like most people, you are unlikely to want to get off your butt if you are feeling down. But, as the Nike slogan says, “Just Do It!” Here’s a fact to get you going: you are guaranteed to feel better after a workout than you felt before it.

2. Hang out with friends.

When we feel down, we typically don’t want to interact with others. This is partly because we don’t want others to see our negative side, but it’s mostly because we don’t think that hanging out with others is really going to help us feel better. I’m not sure where this intuition comes from, but I can tell you that it is wrong: our mood reliably improves after we socialize, especially if the people with whom we socialize are happy and likeable. Similar to how it’s important to overcome the reluctance to exercise, it’s important to overcome the pessimism we feel about the effectiveness of socializing when feeling down.

If you are wondering where and with whom to socialize, just call one of the “favorites” on your smart phone and make a plan to meet. Tell them about what is troubling you to get you started–even a short chat with a close-friend can significantly improve your mood.

3. Consume a moderate amount of alcohol.

I know, I know, I shouldn’t be encouraging people to drink, but what to do? It turns out that when we desperately need a happiness quick-fix, consuming a moderate amount of alcohol can be effective. The key here is to consume just enough to feel a little relaxed. The very process by which alcohol lowers inhibitions can also lower the tendency to worry. In other words, alcohol can temporarily take your mind off things that are causing you to feel negative and thus, can be useful in situations in which our mind is on a “negativity overdrive.” Needless to say, it is important to consume only a moderate amount of alcohol. If you are one of those who can’t stop after two, don’t try this at home or elsewhere!

4. Dress to kill.

As I mentioned in an earlier article, human beings are highly social creatures, which means that we worry a lot about what others think of us. When we believe that others view us positively, we feel good, and when we believe that they view us negatively, we feel bad. So, one way to make yourself feel good is to wear your best clothes and perfume (or cologne, as the case may be) and venture out to your local park or mall. We you look and smell good, or think that you do, you are likely to believe that others view you positively and this will make you feel good.

5. Revisit old (and positive) memories.

Reliving the “good old times” can be a surprisingly effective mood-booster. I say “surprising” because many of us, especially the young among us, rarely engage in reliving fond memories. Curiously, it seems that the more our life has become virtual, the less we are likely to revisit the past. My parents, for example, regularly spend time recalling pleasant past memories, and also routinely pore over the “family album” to relive past memories. Our existence in the virtual world, e.g., on social media websites, should, if anything, allow us to revisit our past even more effectively, given that many of our cherished memories and experiences are merely a “click away”.

A note of caution, however, if you are looking to the Internet to revisit the past: stay away from those who make you feel inferior. That is, stay away from people who are into the game of “keeping up with the joneses”–you know, the ones who frequently post pictures from their vacation in Spain, or engage in name-dropping. Findings show that such “friends” bring you down.

6. Watch a funny or touching video.

Some people prefer funny videos and others prefer heart-warming ones. Regardless, findings show is that even a short exposure to a positive video can significantly boost happiness. (There’s a reason why one of the most popular ways to manipulate mood in experiments is to have participants watch a video.) Here are links to two funny and two touching videos. (Note: the last one is relatively long, at about 15 minutes, but it is well worth it!)

Funny videos:

Dog playing piano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…

The Duck Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…

Heart-warming videos:

Love Language: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…

Validation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=…

7. Talk to an older relative.

It’s a bit of a pity that, in many “new” cultures (like the US), the elderly aren’t as respected as they are older cultures (like China or India). Think about it: as you grow older, you get physically weak and mentally less nimble. The one saving grace could have been that you gain in respect. Without it, growing old seems to have no positives. No wonder the US is so “youth crazy”!

As findings on hyperopia show, the elderly do deserve our respect because they have “been there, done that.” They thus have many valuable lessons to share. In particular, no one can put things in perspective like the elderly can. Talking to them will help you discern the important from the merely urgent and will also help you not sweat the small stuff.

8. Tick something off your “to do” list.

Have you ever written down something on your things to do list just so that you can have the pleasure of scratching it out? Well, turns out you are not alone. Findings show that people derive an “efficacy boost” by accomplishing goals and this can, in turn, make them feel good. If you don’t have a things to do list or can’t think of something to write on it to scratch off, don’t worry. Just do something simple and easy, like depositing a check or washing a cup, and you’ll be on your way to feeling good.

9. Do a small act of kindness.

Perhaps the most powerful determinant of how we feel is the story we tell ourselves about who we are. The more we believe that we are efficacious and successful, the better we feel–which is why tip #8 (ticking something off your list) works. Another story you can tell yourself is that a large-hearted, generous person. One way to convince yourself of this story is to act like a large-hearted and generous person. This doesn’t mean that you break your bank to serve someone; all you need to do is to perform a small act of kindness such as, rescuing a kitten from a tree, or giving left-over food to a homeless person. Even merely smiling or saying “good morning!” to someone can pick your mood up.

10. Venture into nature.

Most urbanites don’t recognize it, but human beings are biophiles, that is, we love being out in nature. I take my MBA students on a two day retreat each year to a place out in the boonies. We hike up a hill and swim in the river and do various other “nature-oriented” things. Before going on the trip, most of my students are skeptical that being out in nature is going to do anything good, but many come away making a pledge that they will get out more in nature in the future. (I’m not sure if they actually make good on their pledge, but the pledge is good enough for me.) Turns out you don’t need to go on a two day retreat to reap the benefits of being out in nature: even a short hike or a picnic in a park can help you feel good.

The Women Who Are Running To Protest Trump Are Tapping Into History

In the wake of President Donald Trump’s electoral victory, Alison Désir, the founder of a community running organization in New York City called Harlem Run, turned her frustration into political action.

Désir’s remedy: a four-woman, 240-mile relay, beginning in Harlem, New York City, on Jan. 16 and ending in Washington, D.C., on the day of Trump’s inauguration. The race was designed to raise money and awareness for Planned Parenthood in honor of women. As of Jan. 20, the (Four Women) Run For ALL Women GoFundMe page had raised more than $ 89,000 ― more than twice their goal ― to give women access to cancer screenings and preventive care, even if Planned Parenthood is defunded this year.

Though Four Women are running specifically in opposition to Trump, they are participating in a legacy of people who run in protest or with advocacy in mind.

Protest and advocacy runs range from sponsored marathons to singular, public displays of support, such as Terry Fox’s famous 143-day marathon for cancer research or the recent 2,000-mile relay run from North Dakota to Washington, D.C. to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Désir’s activist relay is part of a larger tradition of running as a form of protest. Women in particular have a history of using long-distance running to call attention to their fight for equality. In fact, just the act of running while female used to be protest enough.

When Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb’s 1966 Boston Marathon entry was rejected by the Boston Athletic Association because women were neither allowed to participate, nor “physiologically able” to compete, she ignored her denial letter. 

Instead, she dressed in her brother’s clothing, hid her hair under a hooded sweatshirt, and joined the race without a bib. 

Gibb would go on to prove her detractors at the Boston Athletic Association wrong. She finished in the top third of the pack.

“Last week a tidy-looking and pretty 23-year-old blonde [had] a performance that should do much to phase out the old-fashioned notion that a female is too frail for distance running,” Sports Illustrated wrote at the time.

Her protest run also inspired other women to participate, most memorably at that time 20-year-old Kathy Switzer, who officially entered the Boston marathon under the non-gender specific name “K.V. Switzer” the following year. Remarkable though her physical achievement was, race director Jock Semple tried to tackle Switzer and toss her from the race for entering under false pretenses (as seen in the photo above snapped during the assault). As Switzer writes on her website:

A big man, a huge man, with bared teeth was set to pounce, and before I could react he grabbed my shoulder and flung me back, screaming, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers!” Then he swiped down my front, trying to rip off my bib number, just as I leapt backward from him. 

The resulting photos transformed Switzer into the face of women’s running and cemented her status as a feminist role model for generations of women.

Six women in New York City built on that activist legacy. When the gun went off at the start of the New York City Marathon in 1972, the women sat down at the starting line and held up signs protesting the Amateur Athletic Union, which required female runners to participate in a “separate but equal” marathon and start the race 10 minutes before the male runners, or on a different starting line. 

A photo of the sit-in ran in the New York Times the following Monday.

“It made a huge difference because it happened in New York. After that, the A.A.U. allowed women to run with men,” Nina Kuscsik, one of the protesters, told the Times in 2011. In 1972, Kuscsik became the first woman to officially win the Boston Marathon.

As for Désir, she and the women of (Four Women) Run For ALL Women are carrying what Désir calls the “baton of hope and health” into Washington Friday, then joining the Women’s March on Saturday, in honor of the rights of women everywhere. 

In doing so, they’re building on the legacies of Gibb, Switzer and Kucsik.

“There will be four of us running, but we’ll be running for all of us,” Désir wrote on her GoFundMe page.

The Social History of Agriculture

The Social History of Agriculture


This innovative text provides a compelling narrative world history through the lens of food and farmers. Tracing the world history of agriculture from earliest times to the present, Christopher Isett and Stephen Miller argue that people, rather than markets, have been the primary agents of agricultural change. Exploring the actions taken by individuals and groups over time and analyzing their activities in the wider contexts of markets, states, wars, the environment, population increase, and similar factors, the authors emphasize how larger social and political forces inform decisions and lead to different technological outcomes. Both farmers and elites responded in ways that impeded economic development. Farmers, when able to trade with towns, used the revenue to gain more land and security. Elites used commercial opportunities to accumulate military power and slaves. The book explores these tendencies through rich case studies of ancient China; precolonial South America; early-modern France, England, and Japan; New World slavery; colonial Taiwan; socialist Cuba; and many other periods and places. Readers will understand how the promises and problems of contemporary agriculture are not simply technologically derived but are the outcomes of decisions and choices people have made and continue to make.

Women’s March Strengthens, Not Undercuts, Democracy

As over 200,000 protestors converge on DC this weekend for the Women’s March and other anti-Trump rallies, conservatives have a message: the protestors are marching against democracy and representative government.

Writing in The Spectator, Joanna Williams claimed that “the Women’s March on Washington is a protest against democracy,” composed of bitter “Trump-haters” who have forgotten basic democratic principles in a “cry of rage.”

“Protesting against an incoming president,” she declared, “is less a bid to overturn new laws and more an expression of distaste against the electorate.”

Dave Jones, a prominent Trump supporter, went further, arguing the planned peaceful demonstration is “direct assault on our democracy.”

They’re wrong. The hundreds of thousands of women and allies marching in DC–and in 620 cities across the world in solidarity– are not protesting democracy. They are defending it.

Democracy is more than the scramble to 270 electors in the electoral college. It’s more than winning the most votes. (By that metric, incidentally, Hillary Clinton won overwhelmingly).

True democracy builds a society and civic culture in which all people are regarded with respect, dignity, and care. True democracy safeguards fundamental rights. True democracy protects the vulnerable and supports the disenfranchised.

The best articulation of this conception of democratic theory comes from the late Ronald Dworkin, a legal philosopher who taught at Oxford, NYU, and Yale Law School. According to Dworkin, governments gain legitimacy by “treat[ing] all those in its charge as equals, that is entitled to equal concern and respect.”

Majoritarianism is part of democracy. To apply Dworkin’s framework, granting one vote to each person gives “equal concern and respect” to a polity. But democracy is much more expansive than counting ballots in an election. “Democratic elections” and “democracy” are not synonyms.

To Dworkin, “equal concern and respect” involved protecting individual rights. He called individual rights “political trumps held by individuals.”

These political trumps are more important than political Trump. Politicians, even those elected democratically, cannot violate individual rights. And rights, in turn, provide the foundation for democracy.

The marchers (and full disclosure: I am one of them, participating in the Women’s March in London) are responding to Trump’s failure to respect individual rights and equality. The proposed policies and actions of President-Elect Trump militate against a true democracy, even if he was democratically elected.

Consider candidate Trump. He vowed to discriminate against religious minorities, crack down on the press, round up immigrants, punish women for abortions, and revitalize torture. These policies hardly treat people with “equal concern and respect.”

Or take Trump’s actions since November 8. He’s refused to renounce some of his most odious policies. He’s appointed White House advisers who have promoted Islamaphobia, white nationalism, and anti-Semitism. In public statements, Trump has reaffirmed his contempt for the basic rights that are central to democracy.

And most frighteningly, he’s double downed on implementing his proposals to restrict individual rights. Just last night, Trump told donors, “We will do what we said we will do. Believe me.”

In Freedom’s Law, Dworkin posited, “deference to temporary majorities on matters of individual right is… brutal and alien, and many other nations with firm democratic traditions now reject it as fake.”

Ultimately, the protestors are refusing to give “deference to [Trump’s] a temporary majority on the matters of individual rights.” And in the process, they are upholding “democratic traditions,” not undermining them.

They’re not just marching against Trump, but for democracy.

Americans Aren’t With Donald Trump On Vaccines

President-elect Donald Trump’s skepticism about the safety of childhood vaccines contrasts not only with the scientific consensus, but also with the opinions of Americans ― fewer than one-quarter of whom think immunization should be a matter of personal choice.

By a more than 2-1 margin, 54 percent to 26 percent, Americans say that the science supporting the safety of childhood vaccination is “indisputable,” rather than something that requires future debate, a new HuffPost/YouGov survey finds, although partisan divides on the issue are widening.

Two-thirds of Americans say that the issue of vaccinating children is a matter of public health, with just 24 percent considering it a matter of personal choice. A 56 percent majority of those polled say they have at least a fair amount of trust in the government to set vaccination policies. 

Among public health experts, there’s little disagreement that immunization is safe and effective and one of the greatest public health achievements in modern times.

Trump has advocated the debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. Last week, he met with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a proponent of the autism theory, and Kennedy told reporters that Trump had asked him to lead an official commission investigating vaccine safety.

Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks sort of denied that Trump will create such a commission.

“There is no decision made on this position or commission,” she wrote in an email.

The link between vaccines and autism has been thoroughly investigated and disproved. Establishing a commission to investigate the matter could itself be harmful, experts say, since it could lead people to think the question hasn’t been answered or that vaccines don’t already go through a rigorous approval process. Sowing such doubts could lead to a drop in vaccination rates, needlessly exposing vulnerable groups like children to preventable diseases.

“It seems that at the highest level of our government, data is being ignored, scientific fact is being ignored,” said Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation, a nonprofit that supports research into causes of autism ― but not into the dubious vaccine link.

“That act of ignoring data will put children’s lives at risk,” Singer said.

Trump’s flirtation with vaccine-safety skeptics is dangerous, said Amy Pisani, director of Every Child By Two, a group that advocates in favor of timely childhood immunizations. But she said she believed Trump would come around.

“As soon as the Trump administration sits down and starts to read the science, and gets together with the proper autism groups,” Pisani said, “they’re going to come to realize the science is in on this issue and that focusing on vaccines will only take away precious resources that should be allocated to promising autism science.”

That act of ignoring data will put children’s lives at risk.
Alison Singer, Autism Science Foundation

The general public’s opinion on all these metrics has remained relatively stable in recent years. A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted in February 2015 found that 59 percent of Americans believed that the safety of childhood vaccinations was indisputable (54 percent said this in the most recent poll), and 70 percent believed that vaccinations were a matter of public health (now 66 percent). In the February 2015 poll, 52 percent of respondents expressed faith in the government’s policies on the issue (now 56 percent). 

But although a majority of Democrats and Republicans still support vaccination, the minor partisan divides present in the 2015 survey appear to have modestly widened.

Democrats have become even more staunch advocates for vaccines in the past two years. Two-thirds say that vaccine science is indisputable, up 6 points from 2015. Seventy-seven percent still consider childhood vaccines a matter of public health.

In contrast, while 64 percent of Republicans think vaccination is a public health issue, that’s down 7 points since the previous survey. Fifty-three percent consider childhood vaccines indisputably safe, down 9 points from 2015.

With a Republican about to enter the White House, however, more Republicans say they trust the government. Fifty-three percent of Republicans now have at least a “fair amount” of trust in the government’s vaccination policies, up 13 points.




One other finding from the previous survey remains relevant, and could be promising for vaccination advocates: Liberals and conservatives are both more likely to tar the other side as anti-vaccine than to accept the label for themselves.

Self-described liberals say by a 13-point margin that conservatives are more likely to have doubts about vaccines than liberals are, while self-described conservatives say by a 16-point margin that liberals are more likely than conservatives to harbor doubts.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted Jan. 11-12 among U.S. adults, using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov’s nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found here. More details on the polls’ methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov’s reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

Smart Casual Canapés

Smart Casual Canapés


Smart-Casual Canapés is the third chapter from The Sorted Crew’s new cookbook, Food with Friends. Things seem so much more sophisticated when translated into French, but while the word canapé sounds pretty classy, these bite-sized appetisers are actually just finger food. The real trick is to make them look as posh as they sound, so each canapé in this chapter is stupidly simple to make, but when you put four or five together they look really impressive. Recipes include: Jerk Chicken Potato Wedges, Mango, Coriander and Crayfish Sticks, Micro Jackets with Guacamole and Tequila Salmon Gravadlax. Food with Friends is the second cookbook from The Sorted Crew, with recipes by Ben Ebbrell. It’s the ultimate guide for entertaining friends in a fun and fuss-free way, from romantic suppers and family barbecues to curry nights for hungry hordes. Whether you’re cooking for two or twenty, Food with Friends by The Sorted Crew is THE book for easy entertaining. The Sorted Crew came together in their university holidays, sharing their cooking highs and lows with each other in the pub. Headed up by Ben Ebbrell and Barry Taylor, this original group of 8 mates with an interest in food has now grown into a highly engaged online community of hundreds of thousands, that works together to get food challenges sorted. The SortedFood video recipes on YouTube now get millions of views every month. They self-published two recipe books, A Recipe for Student Survival and A Rookie’s Guide to Crackin’ Cooking, and Beginners. Get Sorted was their first book with Penguin.

General John Kelly For Department Of Homeland Security

The number one job of the federal government is to keep its citizens safe. That’s why the person running the Department of Homeland Security needs to be somebody who understands what it takes to make our enemies think twice about trying anything dangerous against us.

That man is General John Kelly.

Not only is Kelly a 45-year Marine whose impeccable credentials made him a four-star general, he’s also a man who understands the real threat. Much like President-elect Trump, General Kelly sees the Southern border as our Achilles heel and the easiest way for those wishing to do us harm to get into this country and perpetrate an attack. With Kelly at the helm, the border will be made secure and that threat will be destroyed.

General Kelly has also shown the kind of guts the position of running the DHS demands. He strongly opposed President Obama’s statements about closing the detention camps at Guantanamo Bay, realizing that having so many suspected terrorists hellbent on destroying the United States roaming free would pose a grave problem. He ruled Gitmo with an iron fist and ensured that it served its intended purpose.

And make no mistake, General Kelly will also stand up to President-elect Trump if he feels has to.

Back in January, the General told the Military Times, “The one thing I was always told is you absolutely have to tell truth to power … the decision makers have got to have ground truth,” adding that, “Otherwise, the decisions they make could be flawed — and that can be dangerous.”

That’s exactly the kind of man we need at DHS. He realizes the top priority is, was, and should always be, the well-being of the American people. If he sees mistakes being made, he will say so, regardless of potential career consequences.

This isn’t a game to General Kelly. He has devoted his entire life to serving this nation. His own son was killed in Afghanistan following in his father’s footsteps. There will be no capitulation to our enemies and no flowery language, either. The job will get done and it will get done right or there will be hell to pay.

Once again, President-elect Trump has done a terrific job of finding the right person to lead a very important department. As he has shown us for decades in the business world, that’s what he does best: puts the right people in the right places. With fearless and tireless men like General Kelly and General Mattis in charge of two of our nation’s most important national security agencies, we, the American people, can sleep well at night knowing we are being well protected.

A new era is upon us. Come January 20, those who oppose America are going to find out very quickly that the days of weakness and appeasement are over. America is going to be strong again. America is going to be safe again. And most importantly, America is going to be great again.

Now is the Time: Do the Next, Right Thing

We will make only one choice.

Throughout our lives, we do only one thing. Again and again, moment by moment, year after year. It is how we live our days, how we shape our lives.

Our choice is this: What is the next, right thing for us to do? Where, in this moment, will we place our time, our care, our attention? Do we remain as we are, do we move? do we speak or keep silent, attend to this person, or that task, or turn away, in this direction, or that?

Each new moment demands a fresh choice.

after every decision, there is yet another to be made. And another. Ours are not so often obviously dramatic choices. We are rarely called upon to know the time to change careers, the day to get married, the hour to leave the city of our birth. Most choices are small, quiet, intimate things that flow from us as a breath, as water exhaled from a mountain spring. Endless, simple, one by one thimbles of water tumble into the next, creating the smallest trickles playing this way and that. Still. Over time, with neither map nor plan – through surprising twists, curving around unforeseen obstacles-mere droplets of water will always invariably find their way down, down, through the valley, completing their pilgrimage at last to become one, an ancient and familiar melting, into the sea, from which it came.

At every point of resistance, any threat of change, our tiny stream makes a choice: To go right or left? Over or around? Or it may just stop, right where it is. Without moving, our stream becomes a shallow pool, creates a slowly growing fullness, waiting. Waiting for that singularly perfect moment when the only possible next thing is to spill itself out and over, stumbling and rushing everywhere along its way.

The stream knows nothing of what lies ahead. It is not conscious of planning for any possible future. It is simply following the path of least resistance, motivated by gravity. Still, how does the water “decide” to go right, or left, when approaching a boulder, a fallen tree? And yet, a choice is made. Inch by inch, the water does the next, right thing, perhaps encountering tiny rivulets or flowing creeks along the way. By the end of the journey, if we look back, we witness the gradual, evolving birth of what we now realize has, drop by drop, choice by choice, become a stream.

A stream is little more than an ongoing fidelity, a consecrated relationship. A never-ending conversation between water, gravity, earth, overcoming obstacles, in a relationship born over time, which gives birth to this astonishing miracle we then call, “stream.” This ancient, elemental rhythm between water and earth creates all the streams that saturate all the seas that cover all the world.

So it is with our lives. The only choice we ever make is one called out from us by a similarly vital inner gravity, an invisible thread that carries our life forward, until our life – this one wild and precious life, meets the world. In all its wonder and promise, in all its ferocity and confusion. Just as it is.

So. We must prepare. We will make choices. If fortune smiles upon us we will make good, honorable, strong choices. But every decision we make, no matter how small, shapes the ground of our being. Each choice helps form the foundation upon which we stand, and live, and act.

This is our field of battle: Here, who we are meets what is in the world. This essential, heroic relationship, this intimate communion between the quiet wisdom of our hearts, and the ways the world emerges, moment by moment, right before our eyes becomes our most reliable tool, our most potent weapon, our true north, a lifelong practice of deep and holy listening for that very next, right thing we will – make no mistake – absolutely, and sooner than we imagine, be required to choose.

Our lives hang in the balance. Surely, goodness and mercy will follow us all.

Actually, Tom Price, Women Have Been Fired For Their Reproductive Choices

During his Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) said he didn’t believe employers were currently able to fire women for their reproductive decisions, specifically their choice to use birth control. 

Back in 2015, Price voted for a resolution that would have dismantled the District of Columbia’s protections for women from being fired for their reproductive health decisions. The description of the resolution clearly states that it disapproves of the D.C. Council’s vote to approve the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014, which protects people from workplace discrimination based on their reproductive health decisions. 

But during Wednesday’s senate hearing, Price insisted that the resolution he voted for would not have the effect of allowing employers to let workers go because of their personal health decisions. Here’s part of the exchange, with Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.): 

Hassan: No, the question is whether an employer, who, let’s say, in a self-insured, employer-provided health insurance plan, finds out that a female employee who earned the benefit with her hard work is using the benefit to provide health ― to provide birth control, to buy birth control, which the benefit provides, and then fires her because the employer disapproves of the use of birth control. 

Price: I don’t think that’s the case. 

Hassan: You don’t think that ― would you like us to provide examples for you? 

Price: Yeah, I’d be happy to. 

Hassan: So, you would be willing to say that employers may not — you would support a law, a rule, that employers may not discriminate against women for their reproductive health decisions?

Price: I don’t think that employers ought to, that employers have the opportunity right now to be able to let somebody go based upon their health status or the medications that they use.

To help Price out, here are just a few examples of women being fired for reproductive choices their employers didn’t agree with, compiled by the National Women’s Law Center:  

1. Christa Dias was fired from her job as a Catholic school teacher in Cincinnati in 2010, after school administrators found out she was unmarried and had become pregnant through artificial insemination. A jury awarded her more than $ 170,000 in 2013 after she filed an anti-discrimination lawsuit against the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati. 

2. Kelly Romenesko was fired from her teaching job at two Catholic schools in Wisconsin after she and her husband became pregnant through in vitro fertilization. The termination took place in 2004, just a few days after she told her boss that the fertility procedure had worked. Romenesko and her former employer, the Appleton Catholic Educational System Inc./Xavier, reached a settlement in 2007.

3. Emily Herx was fired from her job at a Catholic school in Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 2011 after school administrators found out that she and her husband were undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments. A jury awarded her $ 1.9 million in damages in 2014 after she filed a gender discrimination lawsuit. 

4. Christine John was fired from her job at a Seventh-day Adventist school in Michigan after school officials found out she was pregnant before she got married in 2005. 

5. Shaela Evenson was fired from her job at a Catholic school in Montana in 2014 after an anonymous letter to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Helena revealed that she was pregnant and unmarried. She had become pregnant through artificial insemination. In 2016, Evenson and the school reached a private settlement

6. Michelle McCusker was fired from her job at a Catholic school in New York in 2005 after she disclosed that she was pregnant and not planning to get married. The New York Civil Liberties Union filed a discrimination complaint on her behalf, and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled in 2006 that she had been the victim of unlawful pregnancy discrimination

7. After being compelled by a state law to offer employees insurance plans that included birth control coverage, the Madison Catholic Diocese in Wisconsin told employees that they could be fired if they actually used the benefit to get contraception. 

Price’s vote on this resolution is one of many legislative decisions he has made against reproductive choice and the right to an abortion. He has sponsored unsuccessful legislation that would have granted constitutional rights to fertilized embryos, voted for legislation that would have banned abortions nationwide 20 weeks after fertilization, and is against the Affordable Care Act’s birth control coverage mandate

Agricultural Development and Food Security in Africa

Agricultural Development and Food Security in Africa


The subject of food security and land issues in Africa has become one of increased importance and contention over recent years. In particular, the focus has shifted to the role new global South donors – especially India, China and Brazil – are playing in shaping African agriculture through their increased involvement and investment in the continent. Approaching the topic through the framework of South-South co-operation, this highly original volume presents a critical analysis of the ways in which Chinese, Indian and Brazilian engagements in African agriculture are structured and implemented. Do these investments have the potential to create new opportunities to improve local living standards, transfer new technology and knowhow to African producers, and reverse the persistent productivity decline in African agriculture? Or will they simply aggravate the problem of food insecurity by accelerating the process of land alienation and displacement of local people from their land? Topical and comprehensive, Agricultural Development and Food Security in Africa offers fresh insight into a set of relationships that will shape both Africa and the world over the coming decades.

Will Trump’s Inauguration Be The Day Clemency Died?

This piece is the second second installment in the ACLU’s “Waking Up in Trump’s America” series.

As someone who was fortunate to have his sentence commuted by President Obama, I am frequently asked, “Do you think President Trump will carry on President Obama’s Clemency Initiative?” And I jokingly say, “If Trump had the authority, I have no doubt he would put me back in prison and everyone else President Obama granted clemency to.”

But with Trump’s inauguration nearing, it feels more like a funeral to me, and the dead body being buried is clemency. During the campaign, Trump said that he would be the “law and order” president. With Trump’s nomination of Jeff Sessions as attorney general, a big fan of mandatory minimums, he followed through on his “law and order” rhetoric in form and substance.

Obama’s campaign ran on hope, and I experienced it firsthand through my freedom and the hope that others like me would experience it too. But now that hope is gone.

Now the reality sets in: There will be nonviolent drug offenders, many of whom are minorities, who will die in prison. I know this because these individuals were already dying from old age and other illnesses when I was in prison, such as Ramsey Muniz, who is in his seventies and can barely walk. Many have been inside since the late ’80s because of draconian mandatory minimum sentences.

The truth of the matter is that Donald Trump, of all people, should understand the morality of clemency and the truth that we all make mistakes. Throughout his life, Donald Trump has had to defend himself against many claims ― some immoral and some even subject to imprisonment. His voters, however, looked past the wrongs he had allegedly committed in the past and judged him based on what he could do for this country in the future.  

When President Obama visited El Reno Prison, he stated that he “could have easily been one of those inmates.” Indeed, based on Trump’s past actions, he could very well have found himself in prison with someone like me. Yet he is now president of the United States ― the most powerful man in the world. If Americans were willing to give him a second chance, then he should give Americans in prison for nonviolent drug offenses second chances, too.

Since I’ve returned home from prison, I’ve helped obtain the release of three inmates serving life without parole through Obama’s Clemency Initiative as well as assisted dozens of family members in pursuit of a second chance for their loved ones in prison. These are people who deserve clemency, such as Eva Atencio Palma and David Morris Barren. Both have turned their lives around after being sentenced to life without parole for nonviolent drug crimes.

Because of this work, I’ve been contacted nearly a dozen times by inmates and their family members asking for my help. For the past month, however, the calls, text, emails, and voice mails from families and inmates have increased 10-fold. And I don’t know what to tell them anymore. I can’t tell them that their loved one will probably die in prison, though this is likely the stark truth. It hurts because I know many of these individuals in prison, and I know many families with loved ones inside.

Obama’s campaign ran on hope, and I experienced it firsthand through my freedom and the hope that others like me would experience it too. But now that hope is gone.

http://www.acrx.org -As millions of Americans strive to deal with the economic downturn,loss of jobs,foreclosures,high cost of gas,and the rising cost of prescription drug cost. Charles Myrick ,the President of American Consultants Rx, announced the re-release of the American Consultants Rx community service project which consist of millions of free discount prescription cards being donated to thousands of not for profits,hospitals,schools,churches,etc. in an effort to assist the uninsured,under insured,and seniors deal with the high cost of prescription drugs.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs. They also possess no eligibility requirements, no forms to fill out, or expiration date as well .One card will take care of a whole family. Also note that the ACRX cards will come to your organization already pre-activated .The cards are good at over 50k stores from Walgreen, Wal mart, Eckerd”s, Kmart, Kroger, Publix, and many more. Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072. Please include name (if organization please include organization and contact name),mailing address,designate Spanish or English,amount of cards requested,and telephone number.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

How To Recover From Blogger Burnout In 3 Easy Ways

What Happens When You Step Away

What happens when you’ve slowed down on social media to truly reflect where you’re heading with your business?

What happens when you lose the flow of your posting schedule and you don’t even know where to start?

What happens when you think your voice won’t matter anymore?

What happens when you feel stuck?

You haven’t spoken up in over 2 months and we all know that is forever in the online world. You’ve not posted on all your social media platforms, You haven’t recorded a video, You’ve not showed up in your own FB group! What happens to your self-esteem and your confidence when these actions take place. Well, I should really ask what happens to your self-esteem and confidence when nothing has taken place or when you are sucked into this idea that you have to be online 24-7 in order to make a dollar? Well, it can be pretty depressing to know or should I rather say “think” that you have to start all over.

“Truth is being on social media all the time does not equate to running a business or conducting business activity”

You didn’t always feel this way…You actually had some rhyme or reason to what you were doing months before but somehow you’ve experienced something called burnout. That’s what it is. I hate this term burnout. It feels so cliche, it feels like I crashed and burned and there’s no return. There’s no getting back up. But really with all these emotions and thoughts there is light at the end of the tunnel. There is a lesson to be learned and taught to others.

So…let me revisit those questions and share with you my answer.

What can happen when you’ve slowed down on social media?

For starters you get to reflect where you were/are heading with your business… So in my book, amazing things can happen! You begin to have a new sense of confidence and clarity. You can find a new sense of commitment to your goals and what you stand for in your business. You can begin to find your own voice again. You know what when you are constantly online being bombarded by everyone else’s messages you can begin to sound like or imitate someone you really admire. But guess what? You aren’t that person so this time away can bring about a uniqueness in you, and difference in you where you begin to stand out more in your own niche in this sea of online businesses.

What can happen when you lose your flow of your posting schedule and you don’t even know where to start?

Realistically you haven’t lost your flow…you had it scheduled once before. If you scheduled it before I’m sure you can refer back to your old schedule but this time with a breath of fresh ideas and opinions. You can find it on a piece of paper a word document, one of your planners. Start looking back and re-evaluating what you were doing before the burnout. You may just be in a bit of a funk…YOU personally and internally may not be in a flow but that’s ok. Begin to reconnect with your creator first, with the God who created you and listen in to your spirit and where He would have you begin. He’s given you a message for others and you know you gotta get it out to the masses. Start small. Start with an inspirational photo, feel free to reintroduce yourself. Do whatever feels right to you but whatever you do never give up because you lost your flow or feel like you don’t know where to start. I can help with that…I hope this blog post is helping with that now.

What happens when you think your voice won’t matter?

Well honey, this is more of an internal thing. If you are feeling like your voice won’t matter then guess what…it won’t. It’s not for you to determine how your story will connect with others. It’s not for you to give a consensus on the wonderful message imparted within you. Nope you don’t get to judge your message before sharing with others.

When I stepped outside of my own comfort zone and began to share my story and share what I stood for, guess what. I got an astounding…”That was powerful”. This was a mindset shift that I was sharing with other women in my group.

Did you know that I re-edited and re-edited and stressed over this message for days before I put it out. Your voice is your message and when you share it just know if you’ve touched one person you’ve done your job!!!

Conclusion

Whether you are recovering from “Burn Out” or currently experiencing it as you read this post, it’s important to remember that business is a journey and there is no race to the finish line. Brands continually evolve and grow just like we do as people. Sometimes that growth may feel stunted and other times you may experience a growth spurt. But most importantly, building a business is a journey through personal development.

Learning more about yourself and allowing your commitment to shine through regardless of where you think you should be in business are important steps to showing up and serving others through your business.

Duchess Kate Nails Why People Don’t Seek Mental Health Help

The Duchess of Cambridge is yet again schooling the world on negative mental health stereotypes.

The duchess, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, spoke out about how stigma prevents people with mental illness from seeking support. The brief speech by the former Kate Middleton was part of an event in London on Tuesday for Heads Together, the royals’ mental health charity.

“The challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help. Admitting that they are not coping,” she said. “Fear, or reticence, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence ― allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked.

Kate couldn’t have summed it up better. Too often shame silences those with a mental health condition. And what’s worse is that it could be damaging to that person’s health: Research shows that the misconceptions surrounding behavioral health conditions often stand in the way of people getting professional treatment.

Approximately one in four adults globally experience a mental health issue in a given year. That number increases when you factor in children. Experts say anxiety disorders among kids are one of the most common pediatric problems

This is another mental health issue the royals are hoping to tackle. Last year, Kate penned an essay for The Huffington Post U.K. where she addressed the consequences that come with ignoring a child’s psychological well-being.

“The mental health of our children must be seen as every bit as important as their physical health,” she wrote. “For too long we have been embarrassed to admit when our children need emotional or psychiatric help, worried that the stigma associated with these problems would be detrimental to their futures.”

If we’re being honest, we could listen to this family talk about mental health all day. Keep it up, guys!

What Our Kids Have Learned About Public Service

Eight years ago, when our kids were 7, 4 and 1, their dad started work in the West Wing of the White House. They are now high school, middle school, and elementary aged kids. None of them have clear memories of their dad’s professional life prior to these eight years.  As our time in the White House comes to a close, I’ve thought a lot about what they have learned from this experience, aside from witnessing long hours and missed family events.

It will be awhile before they understand the importance and intricacies of policies made in the Obama administration, even though the immediate impact of these years is already apparent. They’ve had unique opportunities, like meeting Justin Timberlake and playing basketball at Camp David, that any kid would remember. But the life-changing opportunity has been meeting countless talented, hard-working men and women who make up our federal government, not just in Washington but across the country.

We met just a small number of the more than 4 million permanent employees in the federal government and I’m not naïve to think that every employee is extraordinary. But those we did meet – and they were many, from all walks of life – are remarkable public servants. Several, in fact, have served as role models for our children. These are experts who could have worked fewer hours, for more pay, in more hospitable surroundings in the private sector. They chose instead the federal government. Judging from the ridicule they endure from Congress and the intermittent pay freezes that have had their salaries grow at less than inflation, they surely didn’t select this for fame or fortune. 

Watching them work and hearing their pride in that work makes clear that they did it because they want to be part of something bigger, to look out for the public, and work on behalf of its security, opportunity, and freedom. And from what my kids have seen, federal employees are doing that.

Our kids saw National Park rangers, stewards of the world’s largest collection of federal lands and national parks, who shared what young people can do as Junior Rangers to help protect our natural resources, and explained to us their work to control invasive species and combat the effects of fire and drought.

They met members of the Armed Forces who, as we learned in visits to Fort Belvoir, Fort Mead, Joint Base Andrews, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, and the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, dedicate years to the intense training, teamwork and reverence for their fellow comrades at arms that undergird the best military in the world.  And we have seen our friends over these eight years move their families at least every three years― just one indication of the intense sacrifices military families endure to make our military work. 

They got to know researchers at the National Institute of Health (NIH) who talked to us about the new treatment options they are working on for patients with life threatening diseases whose options have been exhausted and hope for a healthy outcome otherwise beyond reach.

They learned from State Department employees who discussed youth exchange programs they have with over 160 countries, and programs that empower girls and women around the world.

They met doctors and nurses at the Veterans Administration and Walter Reed who discussed increased knowledge about and development of new brain treatments benefiting our wounded troops – and which at the same time advance our understanding of other brain injuries and concussions in children like them.

They have been greeted by political and career staff of the White House who showed us – and 4.5 million other visitors over the past eight years – the beauty and history of the president’s home. They saw a staff that includes a pastry chef who organized the baking of over 25,000 elaborately decorated holiday cookies each December, butlers who have worked for first families for several decades, establishing trust with presidents and their families, and a ground’s crew that treats the eighteen acres of the White House ground as lovingly as they would their own home.  

And our kids spent time with Secret Service agents and Uniformed Division officers who never complained about being away from their families over holidays, and whose hard work allowed so many to meet their president and first lady at events around the country.

Our kids experienced a core part of what makes this country strong: a federal government made up not just of institutions, but of people who make the institutions work.  If more Americans could see what we’ve seen, I am confident they would respect and value that this federal government is not made up of faceless bureaucrats but of passionate, committed, and talented patriots.  That is a lesson from one mom and three kids that I hope will reverberate for families across the country.

Kari Hillstrom McDonough is the co-founder of Vets Community Connections. She is married to outgoing White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.

A New Year, A New Chapter, A New You

2017-01-16-1484601083-5847386-hrdvsypffasaustinschmid.jpg

The start of the New Year has me thinking about endings, beginnings, and the paths we take to lead us from one chapter to the next. How did you choose your direction? How did you decide to be a botanist, a nurse, or a stay-at-home Dad? For some, life’s course comes naturally–as for those who know what they want to be as early as high school. For others, those decisions come hard–as for those of us who struggle to find our way until a midlife crisis leads us from one place to another.

For me, the certainty that I would wind up as a writer became apparent when I was quite young–though other ideas cropped up along the way. At one point, I dreamed of being a psychiatrist who could help people heal from the disease my mother suffered from. At another, I was sure I would be a horse breeder, spending my life on a farm with all sorts of animals, as I had at summer camp. But the passion for writing won out during my freshman year in college, and when I turned twenty-one I started my first book.

After two decades of writing fiction, at forty years old, I discovered–to my surprise–that I had something important to say about myself. I had a new grasp on all that had happened to me and all that I, at last, understood about my own history. A strong urge to express these revelations and my conclusions about them led me to memoir. I decided to jump genres.

Memoir requires a particular kind of courage–a willingness to open up emotionally and go public with your understanding of your life, rather than putting your experiences and ideas into the mouths of imaginary characters. This sort of writing is a challenge for me in many ways. First and foremost, it’s about “getting over” myself and learning how to be humble. Then there is conquering the fear of being vulnerable with an unknown host of others. Last but not least, there is the complicated matter of writing about people who are so integral to the experiences I am sharing with the world.

2017-01-16-1484581907-2120275-xzw66yayvbaalexwigan.jpg

I get questions from readers about all these issues regularly, and my answer to them is always the same simple truth: I am driven to reach out to others via what I have learned through my own life. I can’t flinch from writing about it. I often receive emails (or sometimes letters) from those who tell me that Searching for Mercy Street helped them to understand their parents better and to forgive the inevitable errors made while raising them. And others write to say that Half in Love has helped them to understand more about depression and suicide, or to move them to seek medical help, or to speak more frankly about their emotions with family–or just to take the risk of reaching out to me, a total stranger who might not answer, even though I seem to be a kindred spirit.

Every one of these reactions makes the fear of baring my soul to the world worthwhile, and this is what fulfills me. It puts into perspective any desire for better sales figures or stellar reviews. In the end, affecting other people with my writing is all that matters to me, and I’m grateful that my life allows me to pursue such a goal.

I have known many who have scrambled for a long time before being able to make a mid-life decision to go in a new direction. One who left a flourishing law practice to write; one who ditched the security of a being a physician to take the risk of becoming a Silicon Valley entrepreneur; one who took years away from her career in journalism to sail the world with her husband and young children; one who decided to become a stay-at-home Dad so that his wife could pursue her dream; one who conquered depression over being childless and adopted instead; one who went back to school at age forty to become a minister.

The changes these people created for themselves required enormous bravery and a willingness to take a leap of faith. I admire them immensely. They gave me the guts to make yet another shift in my professional life, one over which I had been hesitating. Although it was not dissatisfaction that pushed me to leave the genre that I loved, however temporarily, at the outset of 2015 I tackled fiction once again. I chose to start a novel in spite of my insecurity and fear about critics who sometimes judge that my memoirs are my best efforts. But, of course, the decision was softened by the fact that I was lucky enough to be able to continue using my own personal stories in my newsletters, blogs and articles.

We might all look for inspiration, as I did twice, in the examples of the others I’ve written about above–particularly if we are unhappy with wherever life has led us thus far. The advent of a new year is the perfect time to try something fresh. Summon up your courage and unleash whatever it is that fires you up.

You Should Be Weary Of Magazines’ ‘New Year’ Diets

In their January issue, Self magazine partnered with model and body positivity advocate Iskra Lawrence, who has been open about her experience with disordered eating and is a spokesperson for the National Eating Disorder Association.

There was one problem: The feature paired Lawrence’s commentary on acceptance and healthy eating with a calorie-restrictive meal plan. It was a move many ED advocates took issue with.

“I’m just surprised to see [a diet plan] coming from you as a body positive advocate,” Megan Crabbe, a body positive blogger, wrote in an open letter to Lawrence following the publication.

“Your work promoting ED recovery reaches millions, and so many of the people who are currently struggling with an eating disorder see you as the ultimate inspiration to fight their way out,” she continued. “You have a lot of influence over some very impressionable people, and what you’ve given them, quite frankly, is poison.”

Self apologized and swiftly removed the meal plan to leave only the workouts. Lawrence also released a statement to her 2.9 million Instagram followers:

“I don’t believe in diets, haven’t controlled my food since recovery, and would never mean to advocate for them,” Lawrence wrote. 

The glossy is hardly alone ― Resolutions focused on diet and fitness are wildly popular and, as a result, health-focused publications almost universally offer plans each January that cater to those goals, with headlines promising stories that will help you “kickstart” your diet.

But there is often a darker side to this messaging: According to experts, the meal plans so often found in lifestyle magazines and on health blogs in the new year can be confining, time-consuming and fundamentally unsustainable. They can also be dangerous triggers for those with eating disorders. 

“I would encourage anyone ― regardless of eating disorder vulnerability ― to avoid following those types of plans and to avoid reading about them,” Jennifer E. Wildes, director of the Eating Disorders Program at the University of Chicago, told The Huffington Post.

The problem with ‘New Year, New You’ diet plans

The number of calories a person needs per day varies by age, sex and activity level, and whether he or she looks to gain, lose or maintain weight. In other words, a person’s diet is far from one size fits all. Yet, in most cases, “New Year, New You” diet strategies tend to ignore that, Wildes says. Or there is only one strategy at play: To lose weight. 

This particularly includes one element some of those plans like to drive home: The idea that “clean eating” is the ultimate diet. The focus on “kickstarting” good nutritional habits by eating a diet free of all processed foods is misguided, Wildes explains. Different people require different things, so this blanketed guideline may set someone up for failure. 

Self magazine’s meal plan is a prime example of a clean food diet: Breakfast was a green smoothie. Lunch was a salad composed of vegetables, lentils and tahini dressing. Dinner was a black bean burger which suggests portobello mushrooms in lieu of a classic hamburger bun. The whole day’s worth of meals totaled approximately 1,600 calories, according to the printed version of the plan.

More importantly though, a ‘clean food diet’ presents two separate problems: The language used and the actual advice delivered. Eating disorder experts usually bristle at the word ‘clean’ in connection to eating because it inherently makes other more indulgent food sound ‘dirty’ which can be triggering for someone with an eating disorder vulnerability.

The glossy never used the word ‘clean’ in their piece, but the meal plan they suggested still sent the insidious ‘clean eating’ message – that you should strive to eat a diet 100 percent free from processed food. To be clear, eating this way is fine if that’s what you prefer, according to Wildes, but it’s not necessary to maintain a healthy body weight or lose weight. And for people who’ve experience disordered eating, it’s damaging. This type of diet can also be impractical for a busy person since meal plans like this require dedication and time spent meal prepping days in advance. 

“Unless you are someone who genuinely likes to eat these foods, and some people do, the likelihood that you are going to be able to follow a diet like that in a long-term sense is not great,” Wildes said.

Of course, as Self’s and other diet plans suggest, there are some foods that we should obviously eat more than others. However, restrictive food recommendations based on one nutritionist’s meal plan published in a publication often do not match government guidelines for a balanced diet, Wildes said.

This means that someone who follows this advice verbatim may not be following a nutritional plan that’s suitable or sustainable for them. This is particularly true for someone with disordered eating, who may be more vulnerable to messaging that suggests a healthy diet means a lower caloric intake. Eating disorders can manifest through a tendency to create rigid rules around eating

Lawrence’s fanbase, largely comprised of those recovering from disordered eating, were led to Self and its corresponding diet challenge by her presence on the cover. But these meticulous plans can have a negative affect beyond that community.

“I think that these sort of restrictive diets are not particularly healthy for any of us because they’re almost impossible to follow,” Wildes explained.

Still need diet guidance? Here’s what you can do instead

The most updated dietary guidelines suggest all Americans get their nutrients from a balance of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein and dairy. Excess sugar and fat should be limited, not eliminated

According to William H. Dietz, Chair of the Redstone Center for Prevention & Wellness at George Washington University, there is research that the Mediterranean diet may be useful, given its emphasis on fruits and vegetables, low-fat meat and fish. But nutrition science shows there’s no true diet that is the gold standard, he explained.

Additionally, many meal plans don’t take into account personal food sensitivities, which are critical in shaping a diet. The most important aspect in revamping your nutritional habits, Dietz says, is to choose a way of eating you can really live with.

“I think you want to get away from the perspective that ‘all I need to do is follow this diet for a month and I’ll be fine,’” Dietz told HuffPost. “A diet high in fruits and vegetables, has a good source of protein, reasonable source of dairy and whole grains is a good place to start. But you did not hear me say ‘free of processed foods.’”

Wildes and Dietz both said gripping onto a restrictive meal plan for one to two months might lead to shredded pounds, but the weight will typically come back. And research shows that weight cycling, also known as “yo-yo dieting,” usually leads to weight gain long term.

If you are looking at some of the New Year’s challenges, whether you’re vulnerable to disordered eating or not, Wildes says to pause and consider what you value most both physically and emotionally.

Because overall wellness is the whole point “New Year, New You,” anyway.

370 ‘Sister Marches’ Planned For Day After Trump’s Inauguration

Some 194,000 people have indicated on Facebook they plan to attend the Women’s March on Washington, scheduled for Saturday, the day after President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. And 1,200 tour buses have applied for permits to park at RFK stadium that day ― six times the number that have applied for spots on the day of Trump’s swearing in.

But march spokespeople say it would be a mistake to overlook the 370 smaller “sister marches” that have been planned in every state and on six continents that weekend ― and that are expected at last count to draw nearly 700,000 people. 

“This is a global movement,” national sister march spokeswoman Yordanos Eyoel told The Huffington Post.

“This is something that was catalyzed by the organizers of the March on Washington, but it is a call to action to people across this country and around the world who believe in the same mission and principles,” she said.

The Women’s March website is maintaining a running list of the marches being planned, Eyoel said, and is the best resource for people to consult if they are looking for a march near them.

With less than a week to go, nearly 700,000 people have registered to attend via Facebook, Eventbrite and Action Network, she said.

While the marches have been inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, they are being organized by volunteers at the local level and each will have its own programming.

The march in Maui, Hawaii, for example, will begin with a moment of silence and a traditional Hawaiian blessing, a press release explains. The march in Birmingham, Alabama, will begin at the 16th Baptist Church, an icon of the civil rights era that was recently declared a national monument

The biggest marches outside of Washington are planned in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Boston, Denver, San Francisco, Austin and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Internationally, 55 marches have been planned in cities such as Paris, Sydney and Nairobi. 

The aim, Eyoel said, is not to detract from the March on Washington in any way, but to encourage people everywhere to join in what she took pains to describe as a “non-partisan,” not explicitly “anti-Trump” march.

“If you are not able to make it to D.C., I will say that you’re still creating the same kind of change, and you’re making sure your voice is heard,” said Eyoel. “It’s important to do that within the community where you live.”

Where is HOME?

A good friend of mine shared a question posed by guitarist, Chris Wood on her Facebook page:

“Bob Dylan described eloquently how his music has been the quest to get home. Now as much as ever feels like a good time to ask you; what feels like home to you? Are you there already or do you still have a way to go?”

On the same day, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran released a new song called “Castle on the Hill”. The song retraces the singer’s youth, returning to his former home and recalling his memories en route.

I grew up in a small rural town called Penrith in Cumbria, England. It’s a tourist town situated on the edge of the Lake District National Park. I return periodically but I’ve realised over the years how my fond memories are stored in music rather than the place itself.

I consider Penrith to be my home but every time I return I feel more distant, more disconnected. Maybe what I search for is my youth – to remember Penrith as I did back then and feel the way the town made me feel then – but lately it seems empty, soulless. The only way I can get that feeling back is by listening to music that reminds me of when it was my home. That works, then I miss it, then it feels like home again.

When my mind traces back through all the places I’ve lived, they each have songs associated with the memories. In that sense, each place feels like home. There’s a nostalgic pull to every dwelling for different reasons and different songs. For some, scents can also trigger memories of places they consider home.

But where is home? Is it the house or town you grew up in or the house or town where you raised your family? Maybe it’s the place you felt most loved or perhaps the place you gave most love to. How does our heart identify home?

For many, home is more than a memory. For refugees, home is their country; for the street children in Brazil and India, home is wherever they feel safest.

So are we all constantly striving to find home? Do creative people, like Bob Dylan, find sanctuary in their work?

I’ve spent hours pondering an answer to Chris Wood’s question and feel no definitive place as my home. The house where I live now, and watched my family grow, is my home but Penrith is my home town. Maybe I am still on that quest to go home, but I fear that home was a moment in time…

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on what you consider home and why, so please comment below.

Democrats Lead Nationwide Day Of Rallies In Defense Of Obamacare

Supporters of the Affordable Care Act gathered to protest the health care law’s repeal in rallies across the country on Sunday.

The demonstrations were in response to an appeal by Democratic leaders in Congress for a day of action against ACA repeal, the defunding of Planned Parenthood and other policies promoted by the incoming Donald Trump administration.

Perhaps the highest-profile gathering was a rally at Macomb County Community College in Warren, Michigan, that drew thousands of people. Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and several other members of Congress addressed the large crowd that had waited in long lines in below-freezing weather to attend the event. Many who have received health insurance thanks to the ACA shared their emotional stories as well.

When Sanders finally took the stage after his colleagues, the roar of the audience and chants of “Bernie, Bernie Bernie” made it clear that for many in the crowd, the Vermont senator was the main attraction. Sanders’ political action nonprofit, “Our Revolution,” live-streamed the event on YouTube and Facebook.

“This is the wealthiest country in the history of the world,” Sanders said. “It is time we got our national priorities right. The United States today and I hope everybody in America understands it: We are the only major country on Earth not to guarantee health care to all people as a right!”

True to his democratic socialist form, Sanders, who won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in the Great Lakes State presidential primary, went beyond defending the ACA.

“So our job today is to defend the Affordable Care Act. Our job tomorrow is to create a Medicare-for-all, single-payer system,” he exhorted the crowd.

There were some 70 similar rallies across the country, according to Sanders. Photos on social media show significant crowds in Portland, Maine; Richmond, Virginia; Tampa, Florida; Boston, New York City and many other metropolises.

Other grassroots efforts suggest that the prospect of the ACA being repealed is finally mobilizing Democrats and their allies to take unified, concerted action.

The progressive organizations MoveOn.org, the Working Families Party and People’s Action reported that they were holding 500 “resist Trump” meetings on Sunday.

And on Saturday, over 100 people angry about ACA repeal packed Republican Rep. Mike Coffman’s constituent meeting in Aurora, Colorado. It was a scene that resembled past politically effective moments of protest, including the raucous anti-ACA town hall meetings in the summer of 2009.

Coffman only let people speak to him in groups of four at a time, then sneaked out a side entrance earlier than the event officially ended.

Head over here to learn about protest events scheduled for inauguration day this Friday.

Major Powers To Warn Trump Over Middle East Peace At Paris Meeting

PARIS (Reuters) – Major powers will send a message to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday that a two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians is the only way forward, and warn that his plan to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem could derail peace efforts.

Some 70 countries, including key European and Arab states as well as the permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, are due in Paris for a meeting that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected as “futile” and “rigged”. Neither the Israelis nor the Palestinians will be represented.

But, just five days before Trump is sworn in, the conference provides a platform for countries to send a strong signal to the future American leader.

Trump has pledged to pursue more pro-Israeli policies and move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, where it has been for 68 years, to Jerusalem, all but enshrining the city as Israel’s capital despite international objections.

“It would be a unilateral decision that could escalate tensions on the ground,” a senior French diplomat said.

“Five days before he becomes president, it’s not negligible that 70 countries recall (the need for) a two-state solution when his administration could implement controversial measures that may aggravate things.”

France has said the meeting does not intend to impose anything on Israel or the Palestinians and that, ultimately, only direct negotiations between the two can resolve the conflict.

A draft communique seen by Reuters reaffirms existing international resolutions, urges both sides to restate their commitment to the two-state solution and disavow officials who reject it, and asks the protagonists to “refrain from unilateral steps that prejudge the outcome of final status negotiations”.

LOW POINT

Diplomats said there could also be an allusion to Trump’s plans.

Relations between the United States and Israel have soured during President Barack Obama’s administration, reaching a low point late last month when Washington declined to veto a U.N. resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlements in occupied territory.

Obama’s secretary of state, John Kerry, said the settlement program threatened Middle Eastpeace, and that the two-state was in “serious jeopardy”.

Palestinian President Authority Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday that he had written to Trumpwarning that a move to Jerusalem would kill off the peace process and strip the United States of its role as honest broker – and could lead to the Palestinians going back on their recognition of Israel.

Home to Europe’s largest Muslim and Jewish communities, France has tried to breathe new life into the peace process over the past year. It believes that, with the uncertainty surrounding how the next U.S. administration will handle the issue, it is important to push the sides back to talks rather than allowing a fragile status quo to fester.

But with elections coming up this year in France and Germany, and Britain appearing to align itself more closely with the Trump administration on the issue, the prospects of the European Union, the largest economic partner for both Israel and the Palestinians, taking a lead on the matter appear unlikely.

Arab states have their own concerns about how Trump’s relationship with them will turn out, and have taken a cautious line.

“All this is premature. We need to give the new U.S. administration time to assess what they want to do,” said a Middle Eastern diplomat based in Paris.

12 Things Every ‘Type A’ Person Wants You To Know

2017-01-12-1484257821-2930246-12ThingsEveryTypeAPersonWantsYouToKnowHP.jpeg

Robert Frost once said, “The brain is a wonderful organ; it starts working the moment you get up in the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.” He certainly wasn’t thinking about Type A people when he said that. They barrel into the office like they’re racing for a pot of gold, and they never seem to lose momentum. It’s as if they’re driven by a motor that never shuts off.

We each have our own understanding of what it means to have a Type A personality, but what does this term really mean and where did it come from? It actually started in a waiting room shared by a pair of cardiologists. The doctors noticed that their chairs didn’t have wear on the backs as expected–the wear was only visible on the front edge of the seats and the armrests, suggesting that patients were literally waiting on the edge of their seats, ready to jump up the second their names were called.

So, the cardiologists–Doctors Friedman and Rosenman–wanted to find out if the strange wear pattern on their chairs was because impatient people are more prone to heart disease. They discovered that their hunch was correct. They also found that people’s personalities tend to lean in one of two directions, which they labeled Type A and Type B.

2017-01-12-1484257884-1847761-12ThingsEveryTypeAPersonWantsYouToKnowHP2.jpeg

Most think of Type A people as driven and highly strung and Type B people as carefree and even-keeled, but there’s so much more to it. Type As, in particular, are often misunderstood, as we just don’t understand the motivation behind their behavior.

To fully grasp what it means to be Type A, you need to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Don’t take my word for it–let’s see what they have to say:

1. We believe that winning is the only option.
We’re really hard on ourselves. Our desire to do our best often morphs into a desire to be the best. After all, if someone else does something better than us, then we mustn’t have been trying hard enough, right? This ensures that even the most mundane activities become a competition.

2. We live and die by our goals.
We don’t do anything “just because.” There’s an end aim for everything. That morning cup of coffee? The goal is to wake up. Half an hour of Pokemon Go at lunch? It’s about squeezing in some exercise and capturing more Pokemon than our friend down the hall. Heaven help anyone who slows us down or gets in our way. We’re nothing if we don’t reach our goals.

3. We’re always stressed.
Achieving our goals is so important to us that we often get stressed out about our progress. It’s that specter of wasted time or missed opportunities hanging over our heads that gets us all riled up, which can be really hard on our emotional intelligence (EQ).

4. We squeeze something into every possible moment. It may seem hypocritical that we’re sometimes late even though the rest of the time we’re impatiently drumming our fingers, waiting for meetings to start on time. The problem is that we try to squeeze a task into every possible minute, and sometimes we overdo it. In our determination to avoid downtime, we sometimes inadvertently create downtime for other people.

5. We want you to get to the point.
Skip the long preamble; if we have questions, we’ll ask. There’s no need to waste time on the setup when you have something important to tell us–just tell us. The theme here is efficiency; we’re interested in hearing the main points so we can begin taking action.

6. We hate to wait. We don’t hate being stuck at a red light or cooling our heels in a doctor’s waiting room because we think we’re too good to wait. We just like to be efficient with our time and don’t like things getting in our way. Every minute spent waiting is a minute we could have spent doing something productive. It’s a minute that we’ll never get back.

7. We’re conscientious.
Like “later,” “good enough” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Things are either right or they’re wrong. And they always, always have to be right. No matter what we’re doing, we care too much to settle for mediocrity.

8. We multitask. We’re not being rude, and we’re not bored. We just have a sense that the value of our day is measured by how much we get done, and we accomplish more when we do two (or more!) things at once.

9. We have a tough time relaxing. Relaxation isn’t a measurable goal, and it feels like a waste of time when nothing is getting done. It’s very difficult for us to sit around and “just be”; instead, we prefer to be actively “becoming” whatever lies at the end of our current ambition. Anything else amounts to lost time.

10. We have an unrealistic sense of urgency. From our perspective, “now” is the only time that exists. There’s no sense in putting something off till another time. While that’s often a good thing, we tend to give trivial issues a greater sense of urgency than they deserve.

11. We follow a schedule. Our time is carefully orchestrated so that each day we accomplish what we intended. Again like “later,” “whenever” isn’t part of our vocabulary. Everything gets scheduled and added to lists, and we take great satisfaction in ticking all the boxes.

12. We’re restless. Our motors are always running, so when we have to idle, that excess energy manifests in various nervous habits, such as fidgeting or biting our nails. Don’t worry, we’re not freaking out. This is normal behavior for us.

Bringing It All Together

We know that we can be awfully hard on everybody, but we’re even harder on ourselves. This may be difficult to see because no one else is privy to the perfectionist that’s goading or berating our every move inside our heads. Just know this: We care–we care a lot–and we really are sorry if our personality makes us hard to get along with sometimes.

What other characteristics set Type A people apart? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, as I learn just as much from you as you do from me.

This Texas Gun Owner Has Been An NRA Member For 46 Years. Now He’s Speaking Out.

Bernie Phillip is a 75-year-old Texas grandfather who owns nearly 20 guns ― enough, he says, “to take care of business.” He’s an avid hunter, and has been a National Rifle Association member for 46 years.

But this week, for the first time in his life, Phillip broke with the gun-rights group. He wrote to his state representative urging him to oppose two bills that would loosen restrictions on guns. HB 375 would allow Texans to carry a gun without a permit or license, and HB 560 get rid of gun-free zones, including schools, for people with a license to carry.

“I’m all for our 2nd Amendment rights but these two bills are downright irresponsible,” Phillip wrote in the letter, which has since gone viral on the internet. “I pride myself on gun safety and being a responsible gun owner. Neither of these bills further the cause of making our great state safer for my 5-year-old granddaughter. The thought of another parent being able to carry a gun in my granddaughter’s school when she goes to kindergarten next year is terrifying. There’s just no need for that.”

”It’s insane, no doubt about it,” Phillip said in an interview. “It’s mind-boggling they could come up with laws like that.” 

Phillip said he’s discussed the legislation with his hunting buddies, also NRA members. “They’ve said, ‘Oh yeah, that’s ridiculous,’” he said.

Phillip’s daughter, Tricia Gronnevik, who said she was raised to respect gun rights, next week will go to Austin to lobby against the bills with Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, a gun-safety advocacy group. Phillip won’t travel with her because of physical limitation, but asked his daughter to hand-deliver his letter to his state representative.

“Back when he joined the NRA, it was more of a gun-safety, sportsman organization, and so my dad still has that mentality,” Gronnevik said. “He doesn’t go online, he doesn’t even have an email address.

“After seeing everything I’ve been doing in my community and learning more of the facts behind these issues and the facts that more guns aren’t making us safer, I think really he showed how out of touch the NRA leadership is with its members. He’s an example of the longtime NRA members who are being left behind by these extremist gun policies.”

Since her father’s letter spread on social media, Gronnevik said she’s heard from hundreds of gun owners who agree.

“I think that it gives a lot of hope for Texas, because people think that Texas is just like this lost cause and there’s no sense here and I’m an example of the generational shift,” Gronnevik said.

Winter

Winter is a three-month period of time that represents a pause in the activity of life. Great lakes, ponds, and streams freeze over; the earth grows hard and unreceptive. Tree sap stops flowing. Even the air becomes dense, slow to move, and heat stealing. Yet, not everything is as it appears to be!

The pervasive stillness and deep silence of winter are powers every bit as great as are the explosive forces of spring and summer, only different. After all, what is a glacier but a vast frozen river crawling its way through time? Both are forms of water whose unstoppable might can carve their way through solid rock! So, how can we channel this power of winter and use it to let go of whatever stands between us and the higher life we desire?

Winter is the time of the year when the forces of nature assume their most passive form. But we are discovering here that passive does not mean powerless! Consider the micro-pause between each beat of the heart. Is the heart less alive, made less potent for the brief rest it takes in its own beating? Of course not! In each such moment of its repose we could just as easily say that it is gathering itself for its next pulsation. In other words, its temporary passive state is actually a measured act of preparation. So it is with the “heart” of winter.

The better we understand this unique power of being passive–and how it serves as the secret consort of all things active–the more we grow in the faith we need to be wisely passive toward whatever fears remain in us about letting go of our false self. This is why, during the dark days of winter, we should take time each day–as often as possible–to quietly return to the living Light that dwells in the center of ourselves.

By gathering our attention in this way, and bringing the whole of ourselves into the heart of this interior stillness, we not only collect our own forces, as nature herself is doing, but much more: in this deliberate act of gathering ourselves–and for the conscious sense of quiet contentment we find within it–we are also being released from the false idea that the source of our strength and security can be found somewhere outside us.

The great French author, philosopher, and Nobel Prize winner, Albert Camus, knew the power of this truth now revealed. He also realized its liberating potential. In the following carefully chosen words, see how beautifully he tells us not to fear any season of life wherein we find ourselves feeling empty, alone, or without any Light in our life. He writes: “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer.”

Once we start to see, to know in our innermost heart, that life itself is already complete, we can let go of whatever–or whoever–would have us believe otherwise.

Old attachments and their long-standing aches are now seen for being what they have always been: appendages of days gone by, worthless to the Higher Self we have agreed to become and by whose stillness we realize this need for a wholly new valuation of our own soul.

Now is the season to die to discontent, to withdraw our consent to live with any thoughts or feelings that would convince us it’s necessary to live in conflict or confusion.

The winter season can be the most challenging in terms of learning to channel its powers to help us let go. But, we may also have this timeless assurance: we are really created to enter into the perfect stillness from which we came. And for our return home–by entering into the bare infinity that is the center of our True Self–we arrive where we have always longed to be … without ever having had to set out. Here we make this last, glad discovery: the task of letting go, of separating ourselves from who and what we need no longer be, has already been done for us.

Lifestyle Guru Hey Fran Hey Shares 5 Self-Care Tips To Adopt In 2017

Self-care guru and social media personality Francheska Medina, who popularly goes by HeyFranHey, stopped by The Huffington Post Black Voices’ bi-weekly talk show “BV Breakdown” on Thursday to give some timely advice on how to cater to your mental and emotional health. 

Fran is also a co-host of the podcast “The Friendzone” where she frequently explores issues of mental health and provides helpful ways to practice self-care. Black Voices’ Senior Editor Lilly Workneh and Associate Editor Taryn Finley, who co-hosted Thursday’s episode of the “BV Breakdown,” asked Fran to share some of her wisdom on mind and body wellness. In doing so, Fran provided five helpful tips on how to stay rejuvenated and refreshed in 2017: 

1. Put Your Phone Down

To start things off, Fran acknowledge ways to address the very real struggle of social media addiction and ways to escape it.

“Just posting a picture or even your articles online…constantly has you checking your phone all day because you want these quick hits of dopamine [which is] the pleasure center in your body and your mind,” Fran said. “You’re basically looking for that pleasure all day long.”

The self-care goddess said obsession with social media can prevent productivity from taking place. “What happens is your stuck in this dopamine loop of looking for pleasure and things aren’t actually manifesting,” she continued. Her remedy for ending the social dopamine loop is to disable all notifications on your phone.

“That way you’re not so obsessive over whats popping up on your screen and you can actually concentrate all day,” she said.

2. Throw Some Passionflower Extract In Your Bedtime Tea

To simplify the process of catching good sleep, Fran suggested putting a couple of drops of passionflower extract in water or caffeine-free tea before bed. The extract is believed to enable better sleep by allowing you to feel more relaxed.

“It’s nice because it mimics that hormone that tells your body to chill out,” she said.

3. Meditate

As many people don’t have the time or resources to practice meditation in a yoga studio (or even their bedroom), Fran suggested wearing a mala bead necklace instead. The necklaces were created to enable a calmer state of mind as those wearing it are supposed to take a deep breath for each of its 108 beads.

If you don’t want to purchase a mala bead necklace, Fran suggested that a free alternative is to download the Headspace app which allows for a guided meditation.

“It’s nice to get that relaxation and get off that [dopamine] loop for a couple minutes,” she said of the app.

4. Take A Detox Bath With Epsom Salt

If you’re looking for a way to “get the week off of you” come Friday evening, Fran advised taking a bath using Epsom Salt, which is said to get rid of toxins, reduce stress and enhance sleep. You can even throw some lavender oil in the bath to potentially “tap into that goddessy feel,” she suggested.  

“You can make a tub full of so many natural oils that will just have you coming out of the tub just forgetting what the week was about,” she said.

5. Essential Oil Diffuser

To saturate the room with good energy and aroma, Fran recommends using an oil diffuser. While any essential oil of your preference would work, she suggests the Palo Santo essential oil which is created with remnants of bark from the Palo Santo tree in the Amazon Forest as it will give your space a more “natural feel.”

Science Once Again Claims Marijuana Is Medicine In Landmark National Academy Of Sciences Report

Today the National Academy of Sciences released a comprehensive review of research on marijuana and concluded that marijuana does indeed have medical value.

The review concluded: “One of the therapeutic uses of cannabis and cannabinoids is to treat chronic pain in adults. The committee found evidence to support that patients who were treated with cannabis or cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms. For adults with multiple sclerosis-related muscle spasms, there was substantial evidence that short-term use of certain “oral cannabinoids” – man-made, cannabinoid-based medications that are orally ingested – improved their reported symptoms. Furthermore, in adults with chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, there was conclusive evidence that certain oral cannabinoids were effective in preventing and treating those ailments.”

This is not the first time that the scientific community has made claims about marijuana as medicine.

The La Guardia report was commissioned by then-Mayor of New York Fiorello La Guardia in response to the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, the Feds’ first attempt at controlling marijuana use in the general public. The report confirmed what La Guardia suspected, that the effects of marijuana did not impact a person’s sensibilities or ability to make good decisions and that it likely was not as dangerous as Anslinger and his buddies were making it out to be with their Reefer Madness campaign.

The next scientific assessment of marijuana was commissioned by Richard Nixon in the early 1970’s. The passage of the Controlled Substances Act created drug schedules, a system for classifying drugs based on their medical value and dangerousness. Nixon commissioned the Shafer Report to study the effects of marijuana and make a recommendation as to what the appropriate schedule might be. The report concluded, “Considering the range of social concerns in contemporary America, marihuana does not, in our considered judgment, rank very high. We would deemphasize marihuana as a problem. The existing social and legal policy is out of proportion to the individual and social harm engendered by the use of the drug.” Nixon disregarded the report and marijuana remained a schedule I drug.

As the use of marijuana for medical purposes began to gain favor in the U.S., the Institute of Medicine decided to weigh in with a comprehensive review in 1999. This was not the first time the IOM had weighed in on the potential therapeutic benefits of marijuana. A 1982 report concluded, “Cannabis and its derivatives have shown promise in the treatment of a variety of disorders. The evidence is most impressive in glaucoma, where their mechanism of action appears to be different from the standard drugs; in asthma, where they approach isoproterenol in effectiveness; and in the nausea and vomiting of cancer chemotherapy, where they compare favorably with phenothiazines. Smaller trials have suggested cannabis might also be useful in seizures, spasticity, and other nervous system disorders.”

Both reports from the Institute of Medicine were discounted in the political realm.

Today’s marijuana landscape in the U.S. is vastly different from the one in 1999. Currently 28 U.S. states have medical marijuana laws, and 16 additional states have CBD laws. Yet, last summer, the DEA announced that it would not reschedule marijuana; leaving it with the definition of having no medical value.

Once again, the scientific community has come back with evidence against the Schedule I categorization of marijuana. Like the reports that came before it, the NAS report explicitly calls out marijuana’s Schedule I status as a barrier “that impede[s] the advancement of cannabis and cannabinoid research.”

Science has spoken, again. Politicians have a choice. They can continue to ignore the evidence brought forth by the scientific community, or they can reevaluate how marijuana is regulated at the federal level.

The people are waiting for an answer.

Amanda Reiman is manager of marijuana law and policy at the Drug Policy Alliance.

Four Uncommon Ways to Clear Your Mind and Make Big Decisions

What are some tips for battling decision-fatigue? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Jenny Blake, Author of PIVOT: The Only Move That Matters is Your Next One, on Quora.

Decision-fatigue refers to the phenomenon that, like willpower, our ability to make decisions throughout the day diminishes without proper recharging. When mid-Pivot and asking life’s biggest questions, we are often overwhelmed by smaller decisions and things that might not have registered on our radar in the past. Or conversely, we’re so bogged down by small day-to-day decisions that we don’t have the space to ask bigger Pivot questions about what we really want and what next steps would resonate most.

To refresh your mind, I recommend the following:

  • Don’t ask the same giant questions every day (ie: Should I quit my job?). Give yourself a period of time where you don’t have to decide at all, perhaps while you’re researching options. Revisit the decision at specific intervals of your choosing, but not on a daily monkey-mind basis.
  • Create routines for as much as you can in your life – morning routines, scheduling exercise for the same recurring days/times, evening wind down rituals. What recharges you? The more you can create routines around these things, the less you will find yourself debating what to do when throughout the day (gobbling up precious mental bandwidth).
  • Write your questions down.
  • Go with your gut! We actually do know the answer to more than we think – on decisions large and small. If you find yourself debating unproductively, ask: what does my gut say?

How Stress Can Cause A Heart Attack

A stressful, high-octane lifestyle is probably one of the worst things you can do for your heart, and cardiologists now have a better understanding of why. 

In a large-scale longitudinal study, published Wednesday in the medical journal The Lancet, a team of cardiologists at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital found that stress increases heart attack risk by way of an overactive amygdala in the brain.

The amygdala is the brain’s fear center. The small, almond-shaped region in the temporal lobe lights up in reaction to fear, anxiety, stress or anything else that signals a potential threat (real or perceived). A healthy amygdala can help to protect the brain against stress, while an amygdala that’s hyper-excitable as a result of chronic stress or other factors can amplify the stress response.  

The new study shows, for the first time, how an overactive amygdala can cause heart attack and stroke. When stress triggers the amygdala, it activates bone marrow and inflammation of the arteries to create the conditions for a heart attack. 

“Our results provide a unique insight into how stress may lead to cardiovascular disease,” Dr. Ahmed Tawakol, a Harvard cardiologist and the study’s lead author, said in a statement. “This raises the possibility that reducing stress could produce benefits that extend beyond an improved sense of psychological well-being.” 

For the study, 293 people over age 30, all without heart problems, were measured for brain activity, bone marrow activity and inflammation of the arteries. The researchers followed the participants for four years, from 2005 to 2008, during which time 22 participants experienced serious cardiac events. 

Participants with more active amygdalas (as determined by the initial brain scans) were more likely to have a cardiac event over the course of the study period, and were more likely to develop heart problems sooner than those with less active amygdalas. 

“Eventually, chronic stress could be treated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease.”
Dr. Ahmed Tawakol

Inflammation is known to create blockages in the arteries, which can cut off blood flow to the heart, while bone marrow activity has been linked to blood clots ― another known risk factor for heart attacks. 

In a small sub-study, 13 patients with a history of PTSD had their stress levels assessed by psychology, and underwent brain scans and tests of inflammation levels. Those with the highest stress levels showed the greatest amygdala activity, and also showed more signs of inflammation. 

“Eventually, chronic stress could be treated as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which is routinely screened for and effectively managed like other major cardiovascular disease risk factors,” Tawakol said. 

When advising patients on heart attack prevention, cardiologists typically focus on things like diet, smoking, alcohol consumption and physical activity. The new findings suggest that stress management should be considered as a preventative health measure as well. 

“In the past decade, more and more individuals experience psychosocial stress on a daily basis. Heavy workloads, job insecurity, or living in poverty are circumstances that can result in chronically increased stress,” Dr. Ilze Bot, a biopharmaceutical researcher at Leiden University in the Netherlands, wrote in a comment published alongside the study. “These clinical data establish a connection between stress and cardiovascular disease, thus identifying chronic stress as a true risk factor for acute cardiovascular syndromes.” 

So, if you work in a high-pressure environment or find yourself frequently under stress, consider taking up meditation, yoga, tai chi or other research-backed stress busters to keep your heart healthy. There’s a good chance that if your doctor isn’t already recommending these practices, she will be after seeing the results of this study.

Alec Baldwin Will Play Trump On ‘SNL’ The Day After The Inauguration

On Jan. 20, Donald Trump will officially become president of the United States. Alec Baldwin and “Saturday Night Live” are ready for it. 

While promoting his ABC game show “Match Game,” Baldwin revealed to Extra, “We’re gonna play him the day after the inauguration; I’m doing ‘SNL’ the day after the inauguration.”

He added, “Trump is our head writer. He just hands it to us in a basket with a big bow on it every day.”

Baldwin expressed similar sentiments in an interview on radio’s “The Brian Lehrer Show” last year, noting Trump is “the head writer of his own comedy routine.” 

The actor has also opened up about what it’s like getting into character as the business-man-turned-politician, telling The New York Times in December it was all about the “puffs” or pauses Trump takes when he gives speeches. 

“I see a guy who seems to pause and dig for the more precise and better language he wants to use, and never finds it,” Baldwin told the paper. “It’s the same dish — it’s a grilled cheese sandwich rhetorically over and over again.”

We guess that means we’ll be getting a whole lot of grilled cheese for the next four years …

Relationships That Have Roots are the Anchors in Our Lives

By Carolyn Massiah
UCF Forum columnist

The view in my backyard is a conservation area full of various types of trees. As the seasons pass, the trees lose their leaves and even some of their branches, but the trees remain in large part due to their sturdy roots.

To the side of my house is a concrete light pole. It doesn’t have any leaves and branches, obviously, but it is more susceptible to being blown down during a violent storm because it lacks the strong roots that mature trees have to anchor them through a storm.

When I compare and contrast the tree and the pole, I know I would much rather be a tree.

Both trees and light poles stand above the blanket of shrubs and bushes below. However, this is where the similarities end.

Many light poles are inorganic entities of concrete or metal, created through some form of human intervention. The shape and size in which these poles are created will forever be their shape and size as inorganic entities will not change during their existence unless there is additional intervention.

Trees, on the other hand, are organic. They are living organisms that continually change. They will lose and gain leaves and branches but they will also grow and mature throughout their existence. Continual growth and development is what I want for my own life. This is why I would rather be a tree than a light pole.

Unfortunately, positive growth sometimes must come from negative changes. Each year trees weather the change of seasons. With those changes in season, leaves come and they go and sometimes there may be seasons when the trees may not have any leaves at all on their branches.

The same can be said for our own lives. There are people that become attached to you as much as leaves are attached to branches. However, as the seasons change in our lives those people may disappear. Sometimes it seems several disappear at once and you are left bare much like trees in winter. For whatever reasons, those individuals were only meant to be in your life for a season. Yes, it hurts when those who you thought were going to stay forever leave your life before you are ready, but it is the nature of our organic lives.

Unfortunately, you never know how strong any branch will be until it is tested in the most violent of storms. Some branches appear thick and sturdy while they may actually be hollow or rotten to the core. If you step out on the branch for support because of its sturdy appearance, you might be disappointed and shocked when that branch does not support you but breaks and hurts you instead.

The same can be said for our own lives. There are people that we have relied upon and with whom we have built a long-term relationship. We have truly let them into our lives. However, as the weight of whatever burden you need bared by them increases, that friend gives under the load and breaks away from you in a permanent and irrevocable manner. Yes, it hurts but just as leaves come for a reason during a season, branches are there for those life-long lessons that we will take with us long after the branches have broken and been swept away. That is the nature of our organic lives.

So based on this, you might now be wondering why I would choose to be a tree instead of a pole. One word: roots!

Because trees are organic living creatures their roots continue to grow and strengthen as the tree grows and matures. When a storm comes, the roots anchor trees and allow trees to bend but not break in the storm.

Poles do not have that same anchor support. That is why we see more poles than trees down after severe hurricanes.

The same can be said for our own lives. Think about those individuals in your life that have been your anchor and support through the good and the bad. Often, much like a tree’s roots, those individuals do all of their work out of the view of others with no need of public acknowledgement. They are the blessings that we cannot overlook in our lives.

After comparing and contrasting the two, if I had to choose I would rather be a tree if it means that I will continue to have the blessings of roots just waiting to support me and feed me as I work to develop and mature throughout my existence.

Mom Talks ‘Vagina Stitches’ And Other Stuff No One Tells You About Having Kids

The first year of parenthood is full of messy surprises. While there’s no way to prepare for some of these experiences, other aspects are actually quite universal ― just not commonly discussed. 

U.K. mom and blogger Gylisa Jayne got honest about these “real” parenting moments in a viral Facebook post, titled “The things no one told me.”

“There has been countless moments during my first year of motherhood, when I have thought ‘ why did no one tell me about this…!’” she wrote.

Jayne proceeded to list examples of these too-real parenting experiences ― like the “stitches in your vag” that can hurt more than childbirth, the initial breastfeeding pain, the reality of never being alone again yet missing your baby during naptime, the feelings of loneliness and fear, and more. 

“No one told me that EVERYONE will have an opinion on your baby ― how to feed it, how to clothe it, how to name it, how to rock it, why you should only rock it for 5 seconds a day else it will be a spoilt little fuck, and how if you aren’t holding it 24/7 then you are clearly a Shit Mum…. and so on,” Jayne wrote, adding that no one told her a “polite way of telling said opinionated people to eff off” either. 

“No one told me that despite feeling like I couldn’t do any of this, that I wouldn’t know the first thing about motherhood, actually my instincts would not fail me, and everyone is winging it,” Jayne continued. “Some just make it look easier than others. Admiring someone else’s way of doing things shouldn’t make me question mine.”

The mom’s Facebook post really resonated with other parents and received over 75,000 likes. 

Jayne, who lives in Cornwall with her husband and their 1-and-a-half-year-old daughter Lily, shares her reflections on motherhood on her blog. She told The Huffington Post she was inspired to write this post and others along the same theme because she’s encountered many situations that simply aren’t covered in parenting books. 

“They all tell you how to parent and look after your child, but none of them tell you how to cope with parenthood,” she said. “I started my blog to reach out to other mothers that might be feeling like I was ― overwhelmed, lonely, isolated by motherhood in general.”

Since starting her blog, Jayne has amassed over 11,000 Facebook followers. She said she’s “honored” when readers reach out to share their similar experiences and thank her for her words.

“So many women now reach out to me to tell me that I’ve written what they were thinking but never found the words for,” she said. “I’ve found writing honestly about parenting has helped so many people realize that these moments are totally normal! It’s made women who otherwise wouldn’t have spoken about it feel like they aren’t the only one,” she added.

The fear and chaos and exhaustion and doubt ― it’s all normal.

A Former Coal Lobbyist Is Running To Chair The Democratic Party

For nearly all of the Obama era, Jaime Harrison has been a lobbyist at the Washington powerhouse Podesta Group. His clients have included some of the industries most reviled by today’s Democrats ― tobacco companies, coal producers and big banks, which he helped defend against new regulations proposed by the Obama administration.

Lobbyists are everywhere in the nation’s capital. Harrison’s career path wouldn’t be unusual ― except he’s currently running to be the next official head of the Democratic Party, which has generally sworn off many of Harrison’s top clients. Harrison’s professional background cuts a sharp contrast with Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a progressive congressman who told The Huffington Post last week that he would reinstate President Barack Obama’s ban on lobbyist contributions to the Democratic National Committee, if elected as its next chairman. Harrison opposes such a ban, and generally believes lobbyists are getting a bad rap. In an interview with HuffPost, he was unapologetic about his career choices.

“I don’t think there’s anything I’m embarrassed about,” Harrison said. “You don’t have very many options when you graduate from law school with $ 160,000 of student loan debt and want to take care of your grandma. That is how I take care of my family … I don’t come from a lot of money.”

Harrison worked for the Podesta Group from late 2008 until he began his run for the DNC chair late last year. He’s been chair of the South Carolina Democratic Party since 2013, and his bid for the national leadership post was initially viewed as something of a long shot. But he has steadily racked up a handful of endorsements over the course of the race. Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) ― the third-ranking House Democrat ― was an early advocate of Harrison, who worked as an aide to the congressman before jumping into the more lucrative lobbying world. On Monday, he touted support from Reps. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) and John Larson (D-Conn.), along with four members of the DNC ― the 447-member body that will actually vote in February to certify the next DNC Chair.

According to federal lobbying disclosure forms, from the spring of 2009 until the second quarter of 2012 (with a one-quarter break in 2010 and again in 2011), Harrison lobbied on behalf of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity ― a front group for big coal companies that worked to undermine Obama’s climate change legislation and subsequent regulations. 

After denying the existence of climate change for years, coal companies abruptly changed course in 2008, tasking ACCCE with responsibility for a new $ 40 million marketing plan designed to give the industry a friendlier reputation. Greenhouse gasses, the industry now acknowledged, were harmful to the environment. But ACCCE claimed coal wasn’t the problem ― new technologies could clean it up.

Those technologies never really materialized, and ACCCE ultimately paid Podesta nearly $ 1.2 million over the course of Harrison’s involvement with the coal group. Harrison denies that he did any work to “kill Obama’s energy legislation” for ACCCE. Instead, he says he was seeking “incentives for clean coal technology” and financial assistance for “people in those communities and also something for people who invested money in a corporation that’s going to be shuttered” due to new regulations.

ACCCE, which declined to comment for this article, wasn’t Harrison’s only stint with the coal industry. The Podesta Group also received a total of $ 160,000 for lobbying work over the final six months of 2010 representing the National Mining Association, which includes Caterpillar, Alliance Coal, the American Coal Council, Arch Coal, Berwind and several coal interest groups. Harrison is listed as one of NMA’s lobbyists on federal disclosure forms.

Another of Harrison’s early lobbying gigs involved tobacco clients. For half of 2009, Harrison worked on a campaign to help tobacco companies fight new legislation moving through Congress that would require tougher, more explicit health warnings on cigarette boxes. Taken together, the three tobacco companies ― S & M Brands, Dosal Tobacco and Xcaliber International ― control the Bailey’s, Tahoe, Riverside, Echo, Edgefield, Exeter, 305, Competidora and DTC cigarette brands. Harrison also worked alongside the Zip-Zap cigarette rolling paper company and the Council of Independent Tobacco Manufacturers Association on the project. All told, tobacco interests paid the Podesta Group about $ 120,000 over the course of six months, according to the filings.

None of those companies or interest groups would comment on Harrison’s work on their behalf, but Harrison defended working for “small tobacco companies,” which he said would have been “shut down completely” by the new rules. The cigarette industry is heavily concentrated at the top, with 85 percent of the domestic market controlled by Altria, Philip Morris and Reynolds American.

“It’s not that they don’t want to be compliant [with federal rules], but the way that the legislation or regulations are drawn, they’re drawn to impact the larger guys,” Harrison said. “And if they apply to the smaller mom-and-pop-type operations, they’ll be shut down.”

This is a common defense for small players battling reforms. Still, even small cigarette companies make money selling products that kill people.

Harrison also worked on behalf of Bank of America and Wells Fargo as Obama’s Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation was moving through Congress. Both banks received big bailouts from the federal government and spent billions to settle fraud charges tied to bogus mortgages, and both declined to comment for this story. Harrison said he could not recall what policies he lobbied for with the banks.

Harrison would not be the first political operator to move from the lobbying world to the chairmanship of the DNC. Steven Grossman had been president of the nation’s pre-eminent pro-Israel lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, before being elected head of the DNC in 1997. Harrison says Democrats need to stop disparaging lobbyists, many of whom do important work.

“The question I have for a lot of Democrats is, ‘Are we condemning people who can break out of poverty, or do we have to do the jobs that we deem are appropriate to do?’”

The Year of Courage

2017-01-10-1484073658-7328710-Courage.jpg

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
―Anais Nin

Years ago I gave up New Year’s Resolutions, because they always fell apart for me by March! Now instead I choose a theme each year – something I want to ponder, practice, and live into.

2016 was the year of noticing. I practiced noticing all year and got better and better at it – noticing small things and large patterns, how beautiful aging faces really are, and what people leave unsaid.

I’ve named 2017 the year of courage.

As we grow older, courage sometimes shows up in ways that are different from how it showed up in our younger years. For example, it took courage for my friend Joy to decide to stop downhill skiing. An excellent skier, she has loved skiing. And she’s past 70 and notices her reflexes have slowed down. She felt vulnerable and less confident the last couple of times she skiied. So – does her decision not to ski shrink or expand her life? I asked Joy. Her response was interesting. She said that although she thought it would shrink it, she now feels it actually expanded it. A good friend of hers fell and broke a leg skiing last year. Recovery has been slow and painful. “I had the courage to stop before that was me,” she said. And she’s recently started cross-country skiing, which she’d never tried before. “It’s a whole new skill,” she told me. “And I’m loving learning something new.”

Maybe it’s also true that as we age, the courage we need is different – not physical daring-type courage, but emotional and relational. Think of the courage to keep learning, to acknowledge when we don’t know, to see the humanity in someone we disagree with, to forgive.

I can already think of many ways I’m hoping to have courage this year:

  • To say “yes” to opportunities, challenges, life
  • To say “no” when I don’t want to do something
  • Not to be so sure I’m right about things
  • To listen deeply to people who have different views of things
  • To take care of myself, including eating less sugar
  • To create and participate in things that are a lot of fun
  • To stretch myself – keep learning
  • To speak up in the face of prejudice and injustice
  • To speak openly of spiritual matters
  • To love people deeply and well

Anne Lamott calls me to find new depths of courage:

“If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must.
Otherwise, you’ll just be rearranging furniture in rooms you’ve already been in.”

What would be a good theme for your 2017? My friend Donna named her year “Simplify.” Before choosing courage, I considered curiosity, generosity and love. Somehow this quote tipped me to courage: “Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.” ―Baltasar Gracian

COACHING QUESTIONS

  1. Consider choosing a theme for 2017.
  2. What will your theme for the new year be?
  3. How might it make 2017 a better year?
  4. Have a meaningful, fulfilling New Year!

5 Ways to Move Outside Your Comfort Zone

2017-01-10-1484074437-4726257-comfrotzone.jpeg

Most of the time we like to confine ourselves in cocoons of safety. We make life a routine and don’t strive to be better people. Going for the simplest option is natural. Besides, you are safe and surviving without ever having to face your fears and overcoming them.

Unfortunately, living an ordinary life isn’t exactly living life to the fullest. One misses a lot when it comes to learning new things, great experiences, acquiring skills, having fun, and personal growth. If you have ever desired to get out of that limiting cocoon, here are some tips on ways you can get outside your comfort zone.

Be comfortable in NOT being comfortable

The first step to getting out of your comfort zone is literally expanding your boundaries. Expanding your boundaries most definitely will be uncomfortable. However, the sooner you get used to and start facing discomfort the better and easier your journey will be. One of the interesting ways to get used to discomfort is sticking around in that uncomfortable situation for a longer period than you normally would. It is going to be a weird situation at first. But the longer and the more often you get yourself into such situations you would normally avoid, the more you get used to it, and you become comfortable.

Take risks, and hang out with risk takers

There are no two ways about it. When it comes to overcoming fear, either you face it, or you face it. The best way to overcome a fear or to venture into new territories is trying out new things. Hanging out with risk takers is usually a great idea. You can easily emulate what they are doing. Surrounding yourself with risk takers has a trickling effect. With time you will realize you are not scared of doing those things you are scared of or avoiding now.

Baby steps

This is one of the most realistic aspects of expanding one’s boundaries. If you make a drastic move, chances are you are going to bounce back when overwhelmed by what is beyond your comfort zone. The mind and body work with through conditioning. So. Take baby steps towards conquering your fears. If you have a fear of talking to new people, start by saying hi to your neighbors. If it’s public speaking, start by addressing small groups like your family. Expand slowly from there. When you look back, you’ll surely be surprised how far you have come.

Make snap decisions, and make a fool of yourself

Comfort zones at times are usually formed because we fear what others might think about us. But when you come to think of it, some of the people who are loved most and prove to be great company are those who do crazy and weird things without fear. They are people who act silly without worrying what others around them think. So why should you be worried about what they will think? Go ahead, and do that crazy little thing that will bring you out of your shell! You will be just fine, I promise…

Be honest with yourself, and stop making excuses

Fear will always be somewhere in the corner when you want to try out something different. However, let that not be an excuse for you to come up with all manner of reasons as to why you should not do what you want to do. Be honest with yourself and avoid the excuses. Instead, try coming up with more reasons as to why you should do that thing and motivate yourself to do it. The position you will be in after facing the situation is far better than when you keep harboring your fears. If you don’t try it out, you will never figure it out.

Stepping out of your comfort zone brings out the best in you and allows you to experience life from a whole different perspective. Enjoy exceeding your boundaries and have fun. You will realize that you are actually living a more fulfilled life. As you start off your new year, look to conquer that which has been conquering you!
