Short and sweet for a Sunday! Walking and creativity–Do they go hand in hand?
See you next week!
Ok, folks. Here’s the first Ted Talk of the year. It’s all about emotions. I won’t put any spoilers here. Lisa Barrett provides some real insights into how our emotions work.
See you next week!!
I enjoy Ted Talks because they provide the voices of so many different people from all over the world. Honestly, I have to say that some of these talks just piss me off, but I listen anyway. I want to be exposed to as many different ideas and viewpoints as possible. In today’s very divided world, I find these talks to be inspiring, informative, and mind-expanding.
I recommend reading broadly. Read authors you disagree with, follow blogs that make you angry, dive into topics you are unaware of. You’ll be surprised at how your viewpoints will change over time.
This talk is about getting a coach for any endeavor into uncharted territory. An outside pair of eyes is always a great way to improve and keep yourself accountable. Self-management is tough, even for the most disciplined of us.
Enjoy the video with a cup of coffee or tea and have a great Sunday!!
You never really think about this disease until you’re affected by it. My Dad was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia last year. As soon as I got the news, I retired from my job and drove home to spend as much time as I could with my Dad before he forgets who we are and who he is.
This video is about Beth’s Dad. I can relate to this because I’m experiencing it every day. Some days are good for Dad. He talks, he listens, and he understands what’s going on. Other days, and more of them lately, he stares out our living room window unaware of what’s going on.
My Mom and Dad are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary this month and I can tell my Mom isn’t taking this too well. She gets mad at him, she gets frustrated, and all the rest. I can only imagine how horrible it is to see the man you love literally fall apart before your eyes.
If you have someone in your family that is suffering from this horrific condition, feel free to share here if you’re comfortable. If not, I get it.
All the best,
In light of all of the extremist activities in our world, I felt this video would be a good one to share. Her talk is about what they are learning about extremist organizations, how people are recruited or radicalized, and the steps her organization is taking to counter the extremist message. This was a really interesting talk.
The strength of America is its diversity and our ability to work with one another. My time in the U.S. Army proved that when Americans put their mind to something–nothing, and I mean NOTHING will stop us.
This is a great video that is very “time” appropriate in our divisive times.
Enjoy and have a great Saturday!!
Here is a short video of a reporter who was captured and detained by North Korea for 140 days. This reminded me of a visit I paid to East Berlin (still under Communist rule) and how I saw the same things in the East German people when I and my fellow soldiers visited for a day. Very powerful video.
Enjoy your Saturday!
