“Starting the New Year with a New Focus”

By Denitra Day

As we approach the New Year, we all set new goals and resolutions, drop old habits and pick up new ones. We all want to do big things, find love, change jobs, mend relationships, and the like. But, why do we wait for the New Year to make those well deserved changes? Is it that the year’s end pushes us to be fed up with life’s circumstances and experiences? […]

“New Year’s Resolution or Gimmick?”

By Gladys Quin

It’s that time of year again when every social media outlet is preaching the importance of the proverbial New Year’s Resolution. Together their successful at one thing, giving the false impression that change must start on January 1st in order for each of us to have a better year. However, I question the importance society has placed on January 1st. Think about it, how is it that the roll of a new year single handedly has the power to push ”starting over” in full effect? Further more, what makes that day different from the following Friday? Nothing. […]

“This Year, Change Will be a Great Thing!”

By Patricia Merritt

There’s a surprise wrapped up Inside of me. It’s coming, It’s certain. It’s Change. For some people, the word change can have an especially foul stench; and it seems as though I have become one of those individuals. The older I get, the more challenging it is for me to accept change. And, it’s not as though I can’t see it coming. But if I’m not a part of the initial process, the transformation can seem a bit threatening. What will the change resemble? More importantly, how will the change look on me? […]

Make Rest Your Holiday Tradition

By Heather Hawes

Christmas is important to me because it’s a time for REST.  It’s a time to rest, restore, shut down the Internet, detach from cell phone, and truly walk away from the office to spend quality time with family and friends – some of whom you haven’t seen in a while. […]

“Fathers Be Good to Your Daughters!”

A woman goes through several monumental moments in her life that formulate everlasting memories. Starting at a young age, she will begin to experience something she cannot explain, a feeling that cannot be compared to another, a feeling that will be repeated for many years to come. That feeling is love, but to that young girl, it’s “puppy love.”

As the young lady begins to progress in life, she will inevitably experience the trials and triumphs that come with love. Following her first crush in the sandbox and the “check yes if you like me” notes, will trail the heartbreak of separating with that initial crush. In her teenage years, that love for the opposite sex will grow stronger leading a woman to begin to make decisions based on her love interest. Before she knows it, that woman will go through life as a long term girlfriend, fiancé and ultimately wife. […]

“For Our Father’s!”

I was recently talking with a friend about the challenges of parenting. As a new father reaching the first year mark in the birth of his baby girl, he was still hilariously overwhelmed. Balancing the responsibilities of taking care of hiswife, his career success, and his new child, he confided in me the magnitude of stress he was experiencing on a daily basis. Quietly in the background of our conversation was the whisper of his daughter giggling and talking silently in words he could not yet understand. Underneath the tone of confusion was shear wonder at the little person he had helped to create. As I encouraged my long time friend on already succeeding in life by having a successful career and a healthy and nurturing family, I was given such hope for our future generation of fathers. […]

The Kindness Inside

During Nelson Mandela’s 19 years imprisoned on Robben Island, one particular commanding officer was the most brutal of them all:

“A few days before Badenhorst’s departure, I was called to the main office. General Steyn was visiting the island and wanted to know if we had any complaints. Badenhorst was there as I went through a list of demands. When I had finished, Badenhorst spoke to me directly. […]
