In 1968 I discovered Australia at the tender age of 12. Through the wonders of a fabulous 6th grade history teacher and the school library I vowed that when I grew up I would visit Australia. Fast-forward to 2011 I am at week I of a 3 week trek in Australia. The city of Ballarat is quaint, picturesque, and extremely relaxing. I will take a few moments each day to share the experiences, the sights, the sounds, the people and the “brief” melt-down. Exhaling is a good thing, until tomorrow – Emma E
There are specific health conditions that are prevalent and serious for women of color. In 2010 Brighter Day Productions produced a Women of Color Health Conference to address the unique health concerns of women of color. The goal; celebrate women of color and provide accurate health information about the significance of preventive health care. Join us as we produce the 2nd Annual “Fit-To-Be-Fierce” Women of Color Health Conference on November 5, 2011. Register on-line at http://www.brighterdayproductions.org. The conference is guaranteed to be high-energy with qualified presenters, exercise demonstrations, health screenings, and panel discussions on heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Brighter Day Productions is an agent of change and is bringing home to women of color the importance of maintaining their physical, mental and spiritual health.
Today I woke with a song in my heart. These days it takes very little for me to be appreciative of my blessings. A cool breeze, a kind word, a dance tune with a really good beat. In the last few days I have spent time with friends who are celebrating life “in spite of.” I have learned on this journey through life what truly matters is the ability to simply recognize and celebrate the good in our circumstances. People enter our lives for a season and for a reason. Whether the season is a day, a week, a month, years, a moment or the briefest of time; the reason can make a lasting impact. I am thankful to those who shared a “season” with me.
