    Choosing You - Caring for the Caregiver - Part 2

    in Motivation

    On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.

    Living, Caring, Learning and Sharing with Don Durant

    in Writing

    Todays program will focus on the high number of young Black men being shot and killed by Police, across the nation.  It is a true comparison, with the Ohio police officer confronting a Murderer, and at gunpoint ordered him to stop as he kept running towards the officer.  and the young Gun seller in Tulsa, shot dead, "By Accident" The end result will surprise you, and then again, maybe not. But by all means is the action for the officer to have taken, but it is hurtful anyhow.

    KMnm/Leadership skills and qualities

    in Religion

    Seek and you shall find.  In our earlier years, we didn't have to rely on our thinking alone, especially when there waa a parent or two and an older sibling.  We were always being told what to and not to do.  One day we discovered what using our brain for what its worth, was all about.  A sibling or two under us either got our sympathy or the tests ot the times.  Nowadays, the year of the Gregorian calendar, 2015,  We are having to realiza our mistakes and pay the price, in many cases, with our lives.  So many siblings are perhaps feeling sorry that they mistreated the younger ones.  Then again, it all depends on what kind of a relationship was built. Many ones went off to war and returned wondering who they were themselves, less only the others around themm

    Wealth in Politics is turning it into Poli-Tricks.  Money is buying our political leaders so easily that the new TPP is being forced down our throats and the wishes and desires of Israel is taking a front seat even against our own President.  Congress manufactures millionaires based on simply belonging to a select committee and selling your services...

    The Sibling Project: Episode 1 - Nicole Spivey

    in Family

    According to SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 24.6 million Americans were illicit drug users in 2013.  Now just for a moment, take that number and try to imagine the number of people that were impacted by that illicit drug use. Think about the families. Think about the number of mothers, fathers, cousins, grandfathers, co-workers and best friends. Think about all the people that were pulled into and torn apart by the viscous cycle of addiction.

    Clearly, the numbers are staggering and the heartache is real and we need to start talking about it. That’s why I’ve created The Sibling Project: Exploring How The Lives of Siblings Are Impacted By Addiction. Over the next several weeks, I will be speaking one on one with a group who’s voice we rarely if ever get to hear, the siblings of addicts and alcoholics. 

    It is my hope, with this series of podcasts, that we can spark a new conversation that focuses on the countless number of siblings living and struggling alongside an addicted loved one. 

    In Episode 1 of The Sibling Project, I am so excited to be joined by Nicole S. Just from the emails that we’ve exchanged I can already tell that this young lady has a lot to say on the subject.
