"We hear so much these days about how traditional religious family values are necessary for raising moral children who can grow into accomplished adults," said American Humanist Association Executive Director Roy Speckhardt, father of two. "But we humanists have known for a long, long time that ethical humanist values build character. The number of moral and accomplished humanists is legion. We've been honoring the greatest of them every year since 1953 at our annual conferences. Now Barack Obama has given us the opportunity to share this truth with those from around the country who come to our nation's capital to share in the inauguration experience."

This week is Women’s Self Empowerment Week. What better way to start the year. This is a time for women to reflect on and feel good about their accomplishments, role in society, as well as establish new goals for the future. Too many of us have fallen into the habit of depending on others for what we think, what we do, and who we are.
Check out the following links to help you on your journey to self empowerment:

So another year is over and another has begun…
I am not one for New Year’s Resolutions as such. I prefer to set goals: to have aspirations that are achievable and realistic. The first one is to treat myself well. No self hatred, no unattainable resolutions, continuing to improve my health.
2008 was a long and difficult year for me. I have faced many health crisis and have finally turned a corner to feeling and doing well. I want to continue to build on the solid foundation I have carefully built this past year. Which means feeding my body what it requires each day. Not falling for some arbitrary number on a scale. Moving my body to keep my fibro pain in check. Taking my meds and supplements as prescribed. Making and keeping follow up appointments with my team of docs. Attending therapy sessions routinely. Not isolating myself from the outside world.
All this I do for my optimum health.
