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.

I had a rare pleasure this week: I reduced the pile of papers in my inbox to about an inch and a half tall and cleared every piece of paper off my desktop. That's a huge accomplishment for me. I had to celebrate this little victory – with a cup of coffee.

Have you ever had one of those days? You know the day. It starts out unassuming enough. You have grand plans, the newness of the day ushers into your mind all the great things you will accomplish and the amount of things you will check off of your to-do list. You begin to see the fruits of your hard labor and recognize that it really is not as bad as you think. Then you decide it is time to get out of bed and face the world and all the uncertainties it will throw at you.

There is a TV show on HGTV called "Love it or List it?" Experts on the show compete to have couples choose to either love their newly renovated home or to use the adjusted property value as a means to list the home and buy a different one. The Apostle John asks us for a decision in the New Testament Book of 1 John: Are we going to love the world or are we going to leave it behind? [reference 1 John 2:15-17.]
