Happy New Year! By the time, you read this, 2016 will be a memory and 2017 will be our new reality. It also means that by now several people have probably asked you about your New Year’s resolutions.
Resolutions are a good thing. I fully support making positive changes and trying to be the best version of yourself. The thing is, resolutions take effort, and making real changes is often uncomfortable. After all, we have reasons for doing things the way we do them. Usually we choose the simplest, most effective course of action and stick with it until we find an alternative that works just as well or better than our way of doing things. In other words, we do things in a way that keeps us comfortable.
Austin, TX - Organizers are expecting between 10,000 and 15,000 people to converge on the Texas State Capitol on Saturday, Jan. 21 for the 2017 Women’s March on Austin. The event is “a sister march” to the national Women’s March on Washington, D.C., being held the same day to support the rights of women and other minorities as the country’s liberal and progressive populations brace themselves for the presidency of Donald Trump. The marches in D.C. and Austin — and cities in at least 41 U.S. states and 15 foreign countries — take place the day after Trump’s inauguration.
We’ve reach that time of year when we look back, take stock of the year, and begin to think about what will be in the New Year. This year, that is somewhat clouded and overshadowed – as is everything at this point – by the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the USA.
Getting one’s financial house in order is usually at the top of annual New Year’s resolutions, but far too often, we overlook and even neglect making critical decisions during the last few months of the year that can impact our personal financial situations for this year, next year, and for years to come.
As a fitness professional I’ve trained hundreds of people and written dozens of articles about exercise, health and wellness. I’ve changed my tune – every day I hear a lot of reasons and excuses to not train. I’ve been doing this for two decades now and I guess I’m just tired of trying to convince you so here are the top ten Reasons to not exercise!
It’s no exaggeration to say that you haven’t seen anything like Moonlight). Written and directed by Miami-native Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is based on a short play by gay playwright and Miami-native Tarell McCraney. Presented in three separate chapters, Moonlight tells the heartrending story of Chiron, as a child, a teen, and an adult, growing up in Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood. The three actors – Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, and Trevante Rhodes – are exceptional, and the supporting cast, including Mahershala Ali (drug kingpin Juan), Janelle Monae (Juan’s girlfriend Teresa), Naomie Harris (Chiron’s mother Paula), and André Holland (the adult Kevin, the great love of Chiron’s life), are all outstanding. That sound you hear? That’s the well-deserved Oscar buzz about Moonlight. I spoke with Tarell McCraney about the movie at the Standard in Miami Beach in October 2016.
I cannot tell you how many times I have returned from a leather event and run into a friend who says, “I’ve always wanted to go to that, but I’ve never been.” As one gets older you start to look back over your life. I find that most people do not regret the things that they did, they regret the things that they didn’t do. Make 2017 the year that you do it!
