Sweetest Day: Third Saturday in October
-

Now here is a day dedicated just for your sweetie. It exists as an opportunity for you to recognize that sweet and special someone. It doesn’t matter who that person is, or what their relation to you. They just have to be “sweet” in order to get a little recognition.

Sweetest Day is observed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan,Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and areas of both New York and Pennsylvania west of the spine of the Appalachian Mountains.

Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio philanthropist and candy company employee started Sweetest Day. He wanted to bring happiness to orphans, shut-ins and under-privileged. His intent was to show these people that they were not forgotten.  In 1922, he started this holiday by giving candy and small gifts. He often used movie stars to distribute the gifts.

The popularity of this holiday quickly spread. Today,  it is celebrated with loved ones and friends. However, we encourage you to follow the intent of the original holiday, and find ways to give candy and small gifts to those in need.

O-Courses, you don’t want to miss–Yes, that’s right O-Courses & Dr. Winfrey’s Harvard Commencement Speech

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
-
-
Television extraordinaire Oprah Winfrey delivered the 2013 commencement speech to Harvard University on May 29, 2013 before receiving an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree. It is a massive leap from her humble beginnings in Mississippi and the importance of the moment wasn’t lost on the billionaire. Her speech was one of the most important and inspirational commencement speeches I’ve heard.  Winfrey offered the graduating class vital lessons meant for them, but also viable in our own lives.
-
Dr. Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey has several honorary doctorate degrees from prestigious universities; however, her honorary degree from Harvard University was a poignant moment for the iconic business mogul.
-
Some of key points from the text follows below.  Dr. Winfrey’s speech in the 28 minute video below is not only inspiring and empowering; but also has clear steps on what do when you fall.
-
O-Courses
Dr. Winfrey’s O-Courses were born out of Oprah’s Emmy award winning series;Oprah’s LifeClass. The O-Courses I have taken are some of the best and most beneficial courses I’ve ever taken.

 Oprah Winfrey delivered the commencement speech to Harvard University 

May 29, 2013
-
-
-
Here are five of the most important Vital Life Lessons from Winfrey’s inspirational commencement speech–ones designed to “banish the darkness with light and seek positivity.”
-

Max Out Your Humanity

Instead of accruing debt, Winfrey advised students to max out their humanity instead. She told the graduating class to “fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being.” In doing this, the Oprah Winfrey Network owner encouraged students to come alive because the world needs us to be our full selves so we can evoke change.

“No matter what challenges or encounters you face, you will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal and that is this, to fulfill the highest most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family, and the people around you.”

Create Your Own Story

Winfrey’s words regarding the importance of being your own author are still resonating with me:

The challenge of life, I have found, is to build a resume that doesn’t simply tell a story about what you want to be, but it’s a story about who you want to be. It doesn’t just tell a story about what you want to be but why. A story that’s not just a collection of titles, and positions, but a story that’s really about your purpose. When you inevitably stumble and find yourself stuck in a hole, that is the story that will get you out. What is your true calling, what is your dharma, your true purpose.

Maya Angelou always says, “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” That is what makes your story great.

You Will Fall, But Failure Doesn’t Exist

“It doesn’t matter how far you might rise, at some point you are bound to stumble. If you are constantly doing what we do, raising the bar, If you are constantly pushing yourself higher, the law of average predicts that you will at some point fall. When you do, remember this: there is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. When you are down there in the hole, it looks like failure.”

These words are especially important to Winfrey after OWN was deemed a failure in its first few quarters. She vowed not to speak at Harvard University until she turned the network around.

“What could I possibly say to Harvard graduates…at the very moment when I had stopped succeeding? So I went to the shower. It was either that or a bag of Oreos. I chose the shower.”

In the shower, the words of her favorite hymn comforted her: “Trouble don’t always last.” It inspired her to invest her energy into making OWN a success.

“So this past year, I had to spoon feed those words to myself. When you are down in the hole, it’s really okay to feel bad for a little while.  Give yourself time to mourn what you think you may have lost, but then learn from every mistake.  Every encounter and particularly your mistakes are there to teach you and force you to be more of who you are.”

Develop an Internal Compass

Oprah advised the class of 2013 to develop an internal “moral and emotional” GPS that will guide them through the troubling times. She said, “This is so important because when you inevitably stumble and find yourself stuck in a hole, that is the story that will get you out.”

We All Need to be Validated

Winfrey has conducted more than 35,000 interviews in her career and she’s noticed that all humans “want to be validated.” “We want to be understood.” Oprah recounted how even Beyoncé “in all her Beyoncé -ness” needs validation. “Even Beyoncé whispered ‘Was that okay?’—because that’s what everyone wants to know: Was that okay? Did you hear me? Did what I say mean anything to you?”

Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi jointly awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
-
-
Kailash Satyarthi. 60 from India and Malala Yousafzai, 17 from Pakistan have won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize ‘for their struggle against oppression of young people and children’, says Nobel committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland.  He says Satyarthi is honoured for his ‘personal courage’ in battling child exploitation and despite her youth, Malala has achieved much for teenage education in Pakistan and abroad.
-
In India, Mr. Satyarthi, a former engineer, has long been associated with the struggle to free bonded laborers, some born into their condition and others lured into servitude. For decades, he has sought to rid India of child slavery and has liberated more than75,000 bonded and child laborers in the country.
-
Please Note:
Mr. Satyarthia and Ms.Yousafzai are both highly deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize.  Please note much of the attention is on Malala who is better known world-wide and because she is the youngest person (teenager) to have ever been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
-
In the video below you will find Malala’s address to the United Nations Youth Assembly in 2013 and a photo of her book, I Am Malala which was released October 2013.

“Malala has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education and has shown by example that children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations,”   Mr. Jagland said. “This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle, she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education.”
