Monday Question: What Do You Desire?

Jay Colby your blog is great!

Jay Colby

Many people face this question everyday deciding what do we want to do or how do we want to spend our life. This can be a difficult and perplexing when figuring out what direction our life is headed. Often times we do things we don’t like or feel like we have to do. This can potentially make us miserable and live life on a day to day basis. Without following our desires or dreams it can hold us back from living the life we are destined to live.

Where to Start

I often get asked “I want to go after my dreams and passion but it’s not that simple for me I don’t know how to actually get started”. This can be a conundrum for many of us because just starting can be the most challenging and sometimes overwhelming time. We all know saying what we want to do is…

Great poetry on Inner Ramblings Boulevard

She thought what she found
Was the best she ever had!
She never wanted to take
Any of it for granted.
She wanted to do things differently!

She made every effort
To make it a priority.
She wanted it to last forever,
But unfortunately
She was just an option.

She kept hoping and praying
It would one day be
More than just a ‘thought’.
She was certain what she found
Was the best she ever had!

But forever isn’t possible
Without making certain things
A priority.
How could something so right
Still turn out so wrong?

The Women’s March on Washington: I’ll Be There in Spirit by Carol P. Christ

womens-march-logoThe Women’s March on Washington has released its statement of vision and principles, and what a stunning testimony to intersectional feminism and collaboration it is! The statement is woman-centered, while at the same time addressing a multitude of issues that affect women’s lives: from access to abortion for all, to an equal rights amendment to the constitution, to the rights of  women as domestic and farm workers, to police reform, and so much more.

I was thrilled to read the list of women honored as foremothers to the march:

Bella Abzug*Corazon Aquino*Ella Baker*Grace Lee Boggs*Berta Caceres*Rachel Carson*Shirley Chisholm*Angela Davis*Miss Major Griffin Gracy*LaDonna Harris*Dorothy I. Height *bell hooks*Dolores Huerta*Marsha P. Johnson*Barbara Jordan*Yuri Kochiyama*Winona LaDuke*Audre Lorde*Wilma Mankiller*Diane Nash*Sylvia Rivera*Barbara Smith*Gloria Steinem*Hannah G. Solomon*Harriet Tubman*Edith Windsor*Malala Yousafza

Many of these women have inspired me, particularly (but not only): Bella Abzug, Rachel Carson, Shirley Chisholm, Malala Yousafza. I have taught books by or…

Extraordinary writing from an extraordinary man: Reexamining MLK’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

Great writing! It is worthy of a re-post!

mlk-in-jail

When I was in college, I took a course on rhetoric and debate in 20th century America. In it, we looked at numerous famous speeches made by famous people: Lincoln, Jefferson, King, etc. Learning from great persuaders how to fashion a rational and emotional argument would later become useful as a copywriter and presenter. During that semester, no document we studied was more powerful than Martin Luther King’s Letter From a Birmingham Jail.

I am not being glib when I say Letter from a Birmingham Jail is one of the finest pieces of long copy ever written. No question Equal Rights was and is a big idea. I like LFABJ better than King’s more famous “I Have a Dream” speech. Not because of content (both are awesome) but because of circumstances. King was alone in a jail cell when he wrote it.

On this, the anniversary of what would have…
