    I call my close friends “my adoptive family.” My blood relatives all live out of state, so the only family I have here in Miami is the family I make for myself. Creating an adoptive family isn’t easy. You have to select just the right individuals. These people both nurture and support you and challenge you to learn and grow. I’m fortunate enough to be a discerning adult when it... Read More
  • Thanksgiving Lessons

    What are you grateful for? “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy “Here,” Nataly handed me a piece of paper shaped like a long feather, “write down something you’re grateful for and we will put it on the turkey.” She was referring to the paper turkey hanging in the reception.

  • The Act of Thankful Giving

    “Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.” ~W.J. Cameron There is an underground movement brewing in Florida National University. It’s very subtle. Students gathering, asking, “What can I do to make a difference?” Community service is not a graduation requirement here. With a student body primarily made up of non-traditional students, it was always assumed that such requirements would create undue hardship on students who are already over-extended. And... Read More
  • Get With the Program

    “In the last analysis, our only freedom is the freedom to discipline ourselves.” ~ Bernard Baruch Discipline: it sounds like such a harsh word, such a restrictive word—at least to a creative individual like me. It sounds like I’m about to be punished. I like words like imagination, transformation and manifestation—words that seem almost mystical. But really, we could use the synonyms vision, process, and outcome to say the same... Read More

  • Room to Grow

    I’m a big believer in personal empowerment. I feel we humans have limitless potential, although we don’t always see it in ourselves, or each other. Believing is often the first hurdle. Empowerment usually requires two believers, yourself and someone who believes in you. That is where a good mentor comes in. I’ve had some wonderful mentors. Some probably never suspected they were mentors. Some of their lessons took years to... Read More
