World Water Day, Water, Water Crisis, International World Water Day, United NationsToday is World Water Day, which is celebrated annually on March 22.

In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.

As we continue to ensure that every person around the world has access to clean drinking water, let’s also be mindful of our carelessness when it comes to illegally dumping pollutants contaminating our waterways and oceans. While there is still a lot of work yet to be done, there is so much that we can do individually to make this effort possible. Check out the reputable clean water organizations who are making strides to help millions of people around the world have access to clean water.

Spring, Seasons, Warm Weather

Throughout our sporadic winter weather, we have been waiting for spring to get here and booyah…it has arrived. Although allergy season is in progress, I don’t think we can complain about that inconvenience and are truly grateful to welcome the warmth of the change of seasons this day brings.

Helloooooooo Spring!

Women's History Month, Celebrating Women Image Credit: DiversityStore.Com

Contrary to what some may think, the power of a woman is fierce, strong, heroic and mind-boggling. Although progress has been made throughout history, women have faced and continue to face inequality in various industries such as the workforce, arts, literature, politics, religion and film. I love this quote by William Golding (1911-1993), “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men…they are far superior and always have been.”

Throughout the month of March, we are celebrating National Women’s History Month. Women have been the glue to hold families, businesses, and organizations together, with or without recognition. Yet, those days of ignoring the important role women play in our everyday lives are a thing of the past. Women are resilient and demand to be seen and heard. No longer are voices stifled and visions hidden. Women are and always have been the pioneers of innovation…

Are You Ready for a Bigger Pot?

flower pots, growth, spiritual maturity

Several years ago, I purchased some plants and flowers that I haphazardly left in their original containers for a few months. One day I noticed the roots found their way through the holes of those plastic containers and the plants began to look a bit haggard. Throughout my years of many failures and successes when growing plants and flowers, I realize the process for growth and multiplication is not the same application for all of my garden friends. Some plants grow slow, while others take off like a lightening rod!

While fertilization, watering and getting sufficient sunlight was essential, my problem was leaving these plants and flowers in pots they outgrew. After buying some bigger containers to replant my foliage in, I was amazed at how fast those plants and flowers flourished.

Romance, Happy Valentine's Day, Be my Valentine

Today is Valentine’s Day and an annual celebration where lover’s exchange tokens of their affection and adoration for each other. But how do you quantify love? You can’t.

True love is not a conditional emotion. You either do or you don’t. A box of chocolates, a romantic dinner, an adventurous escapade, a tear-jerking love story or a thoughtful card can express sentimentality, but does or should the celebration simply end there?

Regardless of whether or not you have a significant other to commemorate this occasion with, just remember to love yourself, if you are by yourself. Or, think about visiting a convalescent home or children’s hospital and share some homemade gifts of love with them. We know they would really appreciate your kindness. Remember, you have  364 more days of this year to share some of that good ole-fashioned love from your heart, if you can’t do it today.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
