Just another egregious example of our nation slouching closer and closer to theocracy: The U.S. Attorney General’s use of a Biblical passage to justify separating immigrant children from their parents. Even Jeff Sessions’ denomination, The United Methodist Church, condemned his behavior.

Public policy “proof texting” from any sacred scroll should scare us all. Despite popular belief, no particular religion has ever or should ever define this country. This trend is a slippery slope, fueled by fear and ignorance, and under the current administration we’re sliding further away from the freedom to simply be ourselves.

We’ve fought too hard and long to bring America somewhat out of its brutally white-male-centric kingdom, only to see the clock grinding backwards in the age of Trump and his allies in the reprehensible right. Show up and vote this November and again in 2020, and help restore a more inclusive America…or at least put us back on the journey.

Growing Your Strengths

I’m a Nashville-based writer, talent strategist, and certified executive coach. On this website, I primarily write stories featuring a diverse group of professionals whose examples of applying mindfulness, learning agility, and storytelling will help you love your career and enhance your quality of life.

These characters face familiar pain points: nonstop change, accelerating economic and technological disruption, and the collective “noise” that grows louder each day. The impact, for these professionals and for many of us, has been confusion, distraction, and stress.

Until, however, each of these individuals chooses to do something new: practicing mindfulness, learning agility, and storytelling habits, and growing them into strengths…strengths that respond to change rather than just react.

Strengths that you can develop as well.

Don’t settle for the confusion, distraction, and stress. You’re stronger than that, and capable of much more.
