    Dixon D. White on "White Racial Responsibility" & Racial Healing

    in Politics Progressive

    Quite often, there are people who can be described as "a person for a time such as this."  

    Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and so many others come to mind. Looking back on the context of their times in history, we loft them into super human statuses and forget that they were born like the rest of us and they have died like we all will.

    What unites all of these names from our history is the common trait that they had the courage to stand up, speak up and "ACT UP!!"

    That last phrase Act Up comes from our featured guest for this episode of The #SocialSpitballShow.

    Dixon D. White is a self-described redneck and reformed racist. Dixon has many experiences to draw from to elicit truth about race, which is, in part, that we cannot ignore it away. Dixon calls on fellow White Americans to embrace their "White Racial Responsibility" to speak up and ACT UP when they see racial hurt.

    I personally love the term "Act Up" because it makes me think of a child misbehaving, but also the clever bumper sticker that says that "Well-Behaved Women Never Make History." It's true & fitting because we need to step outside of our "comfort zone" of complacency and condoning of a terrible history of racism and violence in this country.

    This history of racism and violence manifests itself as much today as in the past. Racism is not over. We need to stand up to racism. With courageous folks like Dixon White speaking up and acting up on the subject, we can be sure to bring more healing and common ground.

    Won't you tune in and hear from this amazing & inspiring man and others like him? Barbara and I are excited to get this conversation going...

    Building Self Confidence & Self Esteem

    in Blogs

    Thus Self Confidence is about one’s abilities, while Self Esteem is about one’s sense of worth as a person. Let’s look at what this means through an example…


    When you go for a job interview, self confidence is the quality that causes you to believe that the interviewer will find you qualified, and offer you a job. Self esteem is the quality that causes you to believe that you are a valuable person whose life is important — regardless of the opinion of the interviewer and of whether you are offered the job.


    How to Gain Self Confidence


    Those who believe they can do something
    and those who believe they can’t
    are both right.
    – Henry Ford


    Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.
    – Winston Churchill


     


    How Self Confidence and Self Esteem Reinforce Each Other


    Trust yourself, then you will know how to live.
    – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


    The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
    – Eleanor Roosevelt

    LIVE! with Cathi---Surrender to your highest good!

    in Fitness

    YOU CAN CREATE THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS!


    Eleanor Roosevelt said and I quote...


    "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dream!" 


    Are you willing to define "what you want" and let of attachment  to 'HOW IT SHOWS UP."  Are you willing to surrender the belief that you always HAVE TO BE IN CONTROL.


    What do you want to manifest in your life, how do you attune your mind to choose  what you want to manifest.  The practice of surrendering seems so frightening.  Does the idea of letting-go and allowing make you feel like your whole life will fall apart.  For a greater life to emerge for you, you have to let-go and then in letting-go a greater life could emerge for you.  Can you hold the belief that you don't always need to be IN CONTROL.


    STAY TUNED...


    The dreams you believe in can come true...etc.


    Let-Go and Trust...etc.


    Control is really an illusion...etc.


    Signs that it's time to surrender...etc.


    Trust the process of life...etc.

    HistoryChiQ on Women Ruling: Good Queen Bess to President

    in Entertainment

    Recently the White House sent out an email asking, 'Do You Know Who Ada Lovelace is?' (Yes. Do you?) & there was buzz around the last press conference of the year focusing only on female journalists -- Eleanor Roosevelt did it first, but who's counting... ? Well, someone is, because everywhere you look, someone is trying to restore balance to our patriarchal society. Feminist.com founder Marianne Schnall asked the leading question in her book What Will It Take to Make a Woman President? and got great answers from scores of luminaries on women & leadership. Feminist icon Gloria Feldt has founded Take the Lead Women, based on her book No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think about Power . But could Plato have the answer? Professor Anna Caney's new transcription of a previously unpublished work by Henry Howard gives a universe of historical reasons why women should rule. Hey, it worked for Queen Elizabeth I.
