As May ends springtime, summertime quickly approaches as well as the end of this school year. Many feel like the school year went by extremely too quickly and others feel like it didn't go by soon enough. Regardless how you fast you feel school went by or didn't, it's what you experienced that counts.

The battle rages. The struggle is real. The options are endless. The fight is always abounding. The victory is never final. The end is never realized. The choice is yours. Are you going to be a pessimist or an optimist? These two words are constantly at tension. An optimist is one seeing the good in the situation; a pessimist one is seeing the bad in the situation. Two people may see the same thing yet view a different outcome. I bring this up because as of late, I have been struggling with being more a pessimist than an optimist. I ...

Mother's Day is approaching and we all need to appreciate our mothers/mother figures that are in our lives. They continue to take care of us even when we are just slightly a little hard to handle. Our mothers are extremely understanding and they provide for us in ways we can't imagine.

As a young girl, I can recollect singing a song entitled "O Be Careful," and there was a verse that cautioned the singer to be careful what you say. As I child, when I sang in bible study and vacation bible school, I developed a child-like understanding. I acknowledged that I had to say kind things to my siblings and classmates, and that summed up the equation of my understanding. However, as life journeys took course, I began to understand in depth that what we speak is singularly the most powerful influence to humanity.

Remember when you were a kid and you couldn't wait to be a grown up so you could make grown up decisions - only to grow up and wish you were a kid again? You finally came to the realization that being a grown up wasn't everything that it was cracked up to be. It kind of reminds me of one of the familiar sayings that I heard growing up: "You make your bed, you lay in it." This was another way of saying if you make a decision, you had better be willing to live with the consequences ...

Last Saturday was Earth Day! We definitely should celebrate the planet we all live on and it's fair to say, we haven't been treating it so nicely. With all the pollution, toxins, and trash throughout the earth, it's not doing as well as it should be. We all can ultimately slow down these horrible practices and eventually stop them, so the earth can thrive to its full potential.

Who is your tribe? Recently I was asked this question and I had to stop and think. The definition tells us that a tribe is a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader. By this definition we are all in a tribe.

Loyalty. It is the first of our Army Core values, and most of the time we would agree upon the definition. Loyalty means remaining faithful to an organization or individual even when it might not be in one's personal interests to do so. So, to use an illustration from the NBA: Tim Duncan modeled loyalty; Kevin Durant did not.

Are you ever around someone, and it seems like they're always upset, sad or they have something negative to say?

There is a lot of buzz in the news right now about the changes to the Affordable Care Act. Rest assured, I am not about to engage in a political discussion about the morality, benefits, or drawbacks of this action. What we all agree on is that, as human beings, we all experience pain and become sick. In the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, we have enjoyed countless advances in technology and great scientific benefits, but we have yet to crack the code on eradicating cancers or reversing Alzheimer's disease. People still develop diabetes due to diet or hereditary factors ...

International Women's day was last week, so I think it's a good idea to think back and reflect on what great contributions many women have made throughout history, young and old.

How do you define privilege? Privilege is a concept that is hotly debated on social blogs and cable news almost daily. Most of the time, the debate is centered on people feeling they have a special right to certain things because of whom they are or what they have. It turns into an entitlement. It turns into a negative to those that don't have it. Have you ever felt entitled to something without understanding the moment? You can be entitled to stuff, but completely miss the moment. Is your life about what you believe you deserve verses what you ...

It's important to follow a healthy lifestyle especially when you're younger so that when you become an adult these healthy habits stay with you. With March being the national nutrition month, a few healthy food habits will be useful.
