My Time 4 Talk

Revving Up and Getting Back on Track

Revving Up

Since I haven’t quite decided on a suitable term to adequately capture how I feel, I will settle for one that conveys the most predominant feeling right now.  It is with humility that I embrace this time of my life, to reconnect with the world, and make a deliberate and significant stride toward normalcy since the recent passing of my father. As one who prides herself on being a perpetual student of life’s lessons, I must acknowledge a major loss such as this, as one which I have also viewed within the context of the psyche of Family Adult Caregivers around the world. I share your loss and feel your pain, even as I ‘hear’ my Papa urging me to keep the ball rolling, and to never lose sight of my goal! The drive to keep going should never leave us! I, not unlike a host of other adult children of the recently departed, have a lot to be thankful for when I take stock of the rich legacy my father left behind, not just for me, but for many others around the world. I feel ever so blessed!

Getting Back On Track

A Creative Take! – Author: Florence Bell

Saturday’s event echoed my words, “Come dance with me and I will make you
Fishers of Men.”

I saw them wonder.
I saw their flicker of anticipation.
I saw their shadows fade.
Their opened minds,
Exercising,
Freedom of speech.

I saw them – comfortable within themselves,
Relaxed in their huddles.
They spoke of the “who” they could become.
They focused on self, their awakening.
And wowed themselves by discovering
That yes, there were gifts sealed within.

Yes, they could ignite the spark,
Yes, they could take flight,
Yes, they could become……………….
EMPOWERED!

Empowerment: Our Role/Your Role

3rd Annual Self-Empowering Workshop for College-Bound High School Students and their Parentsflyermarch

“Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize.” – Elizabeth Harrison

If you are reading this post, I have no doubt that you are one with a “lifting the world upward and onward” mindset.

How do you see yourself contributing to the success of our initiative to empower our youth and parents?

Perhaps you are effective at reaching out to the core group who will benefit from this event.

You might even possess exceptional persuasive skills you could put into action to convince a child or grandchild of the benefits they will reap by participating in our FREE student-led and caring experts-guided, Self-Empowering Workshop.

You might know or be the parent of a scholarly high school or college student whose involvement will be priceless to their peers.

You might have some innovative thoughts that are geared towards addressing the needs of the student population in your community that we invite you to share with us.

You might be one, or have a direct line of communication with the “movers and shakers” of Long Island and beyond.

It is your time to join Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc., and play a role in the crucial Social Aspect of College Prep

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
