Hope… It is Enough?

John Fioravanti offers an introspective look at the state of our world today and asks Hope… Is It Enough? The post includes a wonderful quote from Michelle Obama and words from John about courage, positive spirit, and whether a better tomorrow can be found. Inspiration? It’s here.

About Harvey Weinstein

Yes, that Harvey. He’s taken the headlines of newspapers and TV news, and now the Hollywood scandal is being included here in today’s post. Jay of Assholes Watching Movies has documented shocking encounters women have had with Weinstein, and it reminds us how far we still have to go in society.

Let’s look at this post, as uncomfortable as the details may be, and strive for a world where women are not treated as sexual objects EVER.

I love the title of this inspirational blog post and it lives up to it too: 7 Ways to Spread Joy.

I thank her for being vulnerable enough to write it as it opens up the lines of communication between men and women, boys and girls.

The role of inspiring young people and broadening their minds is a gratification that parents experience every day whether they’re aware of it or not. They’re a driving force in how their children perceive and make sense of the world around them. They help to establish the moral and ideological infrastructure of the person that they will grow up to be, building their value system as they grow physically and intellectually and form their own discreet personalities. But why stop there? Whether you have children or not, you – yes, you – are an inspiring woman whose experiences and insights are like no other’s. If you’re feeling underappreciated or under-stimulated in your current job or career you could do much worse than turn your talent to informing and inspiring the younger generation.
