Celebrating Black History
Queen Latifah sang this back in 1993. This episode spotlights Black History Month. The focus of the observance is to celebrate the African American diaspora – that is the dispersion of any people from their original homeland – and African American history. U-N-I-T-Y, Queen Latifah sang this back in 1993, while the lyrics may get explicit, it’s the word I’m emphasizing the word – Unity. This is the biggest need for 2021. The second is a return to normalcy. Why do I bring this up in a conversation about Black History Month, as a sub-topic? For a number of us, January 20th inserted the word HOPE back into our vocabularyCelebrating Black History Month places emphasis on those who might otherwise be ignored. Seek to understand that Black Lives Matter is more than three words.

Tis the Season: Reflections
Not Yet. And Yet. Borrowing the title, “Not Yet” from the December 13 Daily Reflection for Advent & Christmas, it symbolizes a special waiting. Not anxious but hopeful. That place or quiet calm gently building. More like anticipation. To many of us, it feels like the past year has been on hold. And we’ve grown weary. So many unforeseen struggles and challenges. We were not prepared. But now is not the time to look back and beat ourselves up for what we should have done. We must look down the road and prepare for the unfolding – as best we can. This episode lays a foundation to build your 2021 resolutions by actually sharing my goals/objectives with you. We start with defining SMART goals and share the what; the where and the how with you. We end with helping you to define your why; track and review your progress. This is our last episode for season 1, but we’ll be back on January 12. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Tis the Season for Gratitude
Greetings and welcome everyone. For the next few weeks, I’m going to take you on a journey. As you have heard me say time and again, Savory Passage is a bridge, a journey constructed of stories from our past to our future. We’ve also heard that we should acknowledge the things we can control and let go of the things that we cannot; just let it unfold. Life itself is a journey, filled with joy, sadness, challenges and limitations. And life does not consider what is happening around us before it injects those emotional tasks that disrupts the norm. Birth, death, celebrations, causes, and let’s not forget – the holidays. Like life, the seasons do not consider our current state of mind.I leave you with one last takeaway, “by practicing mindfulness techniques, you can change the hardwiring of your brain, enabling you to spend more time truly living in the moment; to create new healthy habits to live by; to make better choices; and to grow into the best version of yourself.” You’ve got approximately 31 days to prepare to greet the new year; so let’s get started in an effort to build your resolutions. Ready. Set. Go.
