TODAY'S PASS IT FORWARD.......


Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.


Being yourself is a hard task for many to complete, because many are too scared to show the world what their true colors consist of. Being yourself is sometimes very difficult, especially when many in society will try to make you feel as though being yourself just isn't good enough, and that being someone that you aren't completely is the only way a person will be able to fit in everywhere correctly.

The only problem with this is life isn't about fitting in, life is about standing out. Sure everyone has a desire to be accepted by their peers, but the only way that we can really be accepted by our peers is to be ourselves so that they can actually accept us for who and what we are. Besides, we are supposed to go to places in which we are celebrated, not just tolerated. So be yourself, in doing so you can show the world a new light.

We Are Only Given Today




               We Are Only Given Today:

We are only given today and never promised tomorrow. So be sure to tell someone you love them.


Today is the day that the Lord has made, and rejoice and be glad in it. Never take for granted the importance of every day that you are given life on this earth. We must never stare too hard into the past, because if we do we will find that what we could of had today and in the future will pass us by when we are finally able to turn around.


Worrying about the future too much without living each day will cause us to look too far ahead, and miss out on parts of today that are crucial for success in the future.


Make an effort to live each day at your best. Though there will be bad days, and there will be good days, taking life step by step is a good way to ensure that when you start going the places that you want to be in life that you will know how to maintain a position in the place that you worked hard to be in.


This has been a very bad week personally for me, and I read this as though the Lord spoke directly to me.......he probably did!  Our Father above is so AWESOME!!!


Have new blessings each day.


Hugs,
Barb

EILEEN RIFE TELLING ABOUT  HER NEW BOOK

"SECOND CHANCE"

EILEEN RIFE
AUTHOR



It is exciting to learn about your new book Second Chance, Eileen, and I'm sure others are anxious to read what you will be telling us about your story.  I like the cover, by the way, and it appeals to my interest if I were to see it displayed in a book store.  So, without further ado, let me begin by asking you if there is a reason you thought of the subject idea for this book in particular, or I'll ask that question a bit differently.....


How did you come up with the idea for Second Chance?

The seed of inspiration developed from a desire to build awareness about inner city teen ministries, and specifically Straight Street of the Roanoke Valley where I live and where my son-in-law and daughter serve full-time.

What is Second Chance about?

Second Chance is the poignant story of middle age, surprising friendships, and unexpected places.

Mave Robertson, a recent empty nester, wants the fire back in her marriage, but her husband Jerry remains aloof. Is he having an affair? Midlife crisis? When a neighbor suggests Mave “get a life,” she accepts the challenge and volunteers at an inner city teen ministry where she’s thrown into a culture of drugs, gangs, and unwed teen moms. She soon discovers someone she can help, but might he also be the cure for both her stale marriage and her crumbling relationship with her father.

Dareece Jackson, a teen from the projects, wants something in Mave’s purse . . . and he’ll stop at nothing to get it.

Why did you pick the setting you did?

Second Chance is set in Roanoke, VA, where I’ve lived for almost 23 years. I had no idea how prevalent both drugs and gang activity are in my own cozy little city until I did some research.  Often both pursuits are born out of a need to belong, to be significant, and to be secure, all basic human needs. Sadly, drugs and gang life lead participants down a dead-end street, resulting in danger both to themselves, their families, and others. My hope is that readers will gain awareness and be moved to compassionate action for lost and hurting teens in their own hometowns.

What are some themes addressed in Second Chance?

One of the themes Second Chance addresses is purpose in the second half of life. My central character, Mave, spends her adult life rearing her children. Now that they’re grown and out of the home, she wonders if her best days are over. Her neighbor helps her see that she can enjoy midlife if she’ll get involved in something bigger than herself. Maintaining a meaningful purpose in every season of life is central to our well-being, and thus a powerful theme in Second Chance.

Another theme is redemption. Mave, her husband Jerry, and Dareece come together on the common ground of needing to forgive their fathers for past abuse. This theme bridges social and economic status, helping the reader realize that whether s/he lives in a middle class neighborhood or the projects, s/he can still struggle with some of the same fundamental issues in life. 

How has this story touched you on a personal level?

In some ways, writing Second Chance was my way of processing entrance into the empty nest. I had homeschooled my three daughters for 20 years. I knew there would be an end to that period in my life, but when it happened, I wasn’t totally prepared. Several life events occurred at the same time: two daughters’ weddings in one year, two first grandbabies the next year, my mother’s death, my husband starting a new business. I felt overwhelmed. Looking back, I should (ah, the wonderful should), have taken a personal retreat of some sort to rest, regroup, and reflect on the “what’s next?” question.

On another level, Second Chance is close to my heart because I wanted to honor and help promote Straight Street.

Do you have any tips/suggestions for moms as they approach the empty nest?

Foster a healthy, growing relationship with your husband. This is vital, so that when you enter the empty nest season, you won’t be sitting across the table from your husband, thinking, Who is this guy? Investing in your marriage now will pay off down the road. I encourage couples to pencil in a weekly date night on the calendar, even if it simply means putting the kids to bed early and sitting on the sofa together with a bowl of popcorn.
Second Chance highlights this throughout the story as Mave moves from suspicion about her husband, Jerry, to determination to love him. This tension plays out in often humorous ways, and one of them involves popcorn!
Develop a friendship with two or three trusted women whom you allow to speak into your life as you grow older. Mave doesn’t always appreciate what her friend, Trish, has to share. In fact, at times she’s downright jealous of the woman. But when all’s said and done, she respects her and values her input.
Know that God has a purpose for you in every season of life. Begin now to foster your own interests apart from your family.  Mine is writing, and the Lord has used this platform in my life to do what He’s put in my heart: Share His love and forgiveness with others. You may have to search for your purpose, but it’s there—some cause or people group that you’re passionate about. Mave discovers her purpose unexpectedly, but she then takes steps to pursue fulfilling that purpose.

What do you want readers to take away after they close the pages of Second Chance?

In the words of Robert Browning: That the best is yet to come. Midlife doesn’t mean life is over. When I turned 50 and so many life events were coming at me, I urged my husband, Chuck, to dance with me. I craved something new and different. Something to call our own. Now, you have to know Chuck. Dancing is as far from his personality as you can get. But in his wisdom, he humored me. He even bought me a dance instruction video that Christmas. Now, six years later, we still take an occasional dance class. Sometimes, if you peek in our living room window at night, you’ll see us practicing a few steps in front of the fire place.
Also, I want readers to take away awareness and action. Find something or someone else they can serve. Serving others breeds joy and fulfillment because that’s the way God has wired us.

What book are you working on next?

I’m currently juggling three projects, but the next novel is titled Laughing with Lily. And the teaser: An unexpected encounter with a person from her past launches a special education teacher on a quest for answers.

Where can readers find you and your book?

My books are available for order through bookstores and online.


Eileen, I can personally relate to many feelings you described overwhelming Mave.  She certainly went from the kettle to the fire with problems she developed when she sought new solutions to fill up  her "empty nest" syndrome.  You have illustrated a very clear picture about the highlights of  your story without giving away any teasers.  You definitely have left me wanting more.  I can't wait to get my copy of Second Chances and devour a great read.  Reading an interesting page turner is like comfort food to me.  The title of your novel in the works,  Laughing with Lily, is quite intriguing and we can all look forward to another good story soon.  Thank you for giving a thorough synopsis of Second Chances, that speaks to many readers today who will empathize with Mave.  You have delighted me with your interview and please come back when you are ready to tell us about Laughing with Lily.  You have been blessed especially talented by the Lord with a creative mind and I will pray for the success of your writing future.  It's been a joy getting to know another sister in the Lord.  


Friends, below is a trailer of a news interview with Eileen Rife on Second Chances.  I urge you to watch and enjoy.


Have a great week,
Barb

International Women's Day

INCREDIBLE PICTURES AND STORIES
OF INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
IT'S A MUST SEE FOR WOMEN EVERYWHERE!



Venezuela

March 8 marks the 101st International Women's Day. The event aims to celebrate the progress of women while pointing out inequalities that still exist.

A supporter of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez, Marlene Vanegas, 72, known as "Little Red Riding Hood," rides on the back of a motorbike holding a homemade signs that reads in Spanish; "Love is paid with love," during a rally marking International Women's Day in Caracas, Venezuela on March 8.

CLICK ON BELOW LINK 
TO VIEW 22 PICS & STORIES


You'll please excuse my unawareness that this special day honoring women all over the world actually happened two days ago.  These women in the pictures know how to celebrate in some countries, yet in others - it's hard to be a women.  It caused me to realize how blessed we American women are and how fortunate that we have the kind of power and love as Christians to change the world for women everywhere who are not as fortunate.  We can make every day a women's day through prayer and sharing those things of our faith that can bring spiritual contentment to those who don't know what can bring happiness to their lives.  Pass it forward.  They need to be blessed.  Woman praying for women - I like that!  Sounds like a good place to be.  If there isn't already an organization formed around that name....someone should organize it.  Any volunteers?  Well, it's a nice thought anyway.....

Hugs to all until the next time,
Barb

Encourage One Another: God Will Save Me!

Hi Friends.....The person who writes this blog just joined by following my blog.  Just wanted to add the blog here so you can visit it.


Pass it forward!


Encourage One Another: God Will Save Me!: There was an man sitting on his porch watching the rain fall. Pretty soon the water was coming over the porch and into the house. The m...

Can you get addicted to ice cream? Maybe, study shows

OH OH.....NOW WHAT MORE DO I HAVE TO GIVE UP???


Sure, Stephen Colbert’s Americone Dream tastes so good it’s addictive, but is it, you know, addictive? Could Ben and Jerry, Häagen Dazs, or Blue Bell really be pushers of a substance akin to nicotine? 
Baskin-Robbins-as-crack-house might seem ridiculous, and the idea that any food can be addictive in the scientific sense is still controversial. But, broadly speaking, as far as the brain’s circuitry is concerned, pleasure is pleasure. Activation patterns often look about the same.  Now new research shows that ice cream and drugs may share something else in common.   
With drugs, over time, addicts feel less and less pleasure, though they crave more and more. This effect has been linked to a lowered density of specific versions of cellular receptors for the brain chemical dopamine. It’s as if constant stimulation has blunted the ability to enjoy.
When researchers Kyle S. Burger and Eric Stice, of theOregon Research Institute, fed kids real chocolate milkshakes (made with Häagen Dazs) while the kids’ brains were being scanned, they found a similar effect.
In a study published online last week by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Burger and Stice first surveyed the 151 adolescents, all of them of healthy weight, about their recent eating habits and how much they craved certain foods. Then they scanned them in an fMRI machine while showing them a cartoon of a milkshake, to measure craving, followed by the real shake.  
All the kids wanted the shake, but those who ate the most ice cream over the previous few weeks enjoyed it less, as reflected in lowered activity in reward centers.
It’s as if the brains of big ice cream eaters had been changed, Burger said. "Over consumption of these foods down regulates reward processes," he explained. "That may, in turn, make you eat more," in an effort to feel the same pleasure you once did. "You could be continually tying to match the earlier experience," he said, taking bigger and bigger portions, and gaining more and more weight.
Importantly, these kids weren’t fat. That means that the brain changes Burger believes are at work happen before obesity sets in.
"Hyper-rewarding foods cause changes in the brain akin to what we see with tobacco and alcohol. ... That is food addiction,"insisted Ashley Gearhardt, a Yale psychology PhD candidate who has also conducted research using milkshakes. (Solid ice cream can’t be fed to a subject in an fMRI.) She admitted the case for food addiction "is not open and shut," but, she said, "our food environment preys on people" by manufacturing food "designed to amp up reward" and vulnerable people can become addicts.
Burger isn’t so sure. "I personally do not say food is addictive. I say energy-dense food, high sugar food, can elicit neural responses during consumption that parallel those seen in drug addiction. So it has addictive-like properties."
That may seem a difference without a purpose, but true addiction is more complicated than diminished reward in the face of high craving. Until more is learned, enjoy -- a little -- of that Super Fudge Chunk.

Well, dear friends - whatever is your choice....ENJOY or SUFFER!?


Whatever you decide....I want you to feel the joy of management.  Do all things in moderation.

LESLIE RADDATZ INTERVIEW 


FLASHBACKS IN

POST TRAUMATIC

STRESS DISORDER


THURSDAY - DAY FOUR


LESLIE RADDATZ
AUTHOR


Barb:  Well, here we are again, Leslie, after taking a day’s break to allow our readers to catch up and take in more understanding of PSTD, we are both eager to continue.  Didn’t we leave the interview the other day promising more information about EMDR and Brainspotting?


Leslie:  Yes and I’m glad to be continuing with more information.  This entire issue is direly important to be understood.  I do appreciate the comments and input from those reading your blog.  So, start firing your questions and I’ll do my best to answer.

Barb:  Right on, Leslie….(chuckles)…I’ll admit that I’ve done a little research on EMDR and Brainspotting and I googled some information.  There is certainly a lot of information, so I randomly looked at Paula R. Shild PhD of a Boulder, Colorado Therapy Group that works with all types of relationship problems.
http://www.paulaschild.com/relationship_problems.html

Leslie:  I’d be interested in seeing that, but what did you find out?  Tell me something you learned and I’ll pick up and interrupt…..well, I really mean add to what you are saying. (laughs)

Barb:  Ok.  I apologize that I didn’t send this information to you, but I’ll send it to you later, if that is alright.  She gave a great lead in on what causes PSTD:

            "Our earliest relationships with our parents or caregivers influence who we are and how we interact with others for the rest of our lives. Connecting with our parents is as instinctual and fundamental as our need to eat and sleep. A good relationship or attachment to our parents allows us to develop our sense of our selves and shapes our personalities. How we get our needs met by our parents as children affects how we see and experience others and the world around us.
When we have relationship problems or are unhappy generally in our adult lives, we can examine these early relationships to determine how we learned to connect with others. The therapeutic relationship is the perfect place to figure out what we need to change to have good relationships and more satisfying lives.
In my Boulder Psychotherapy practice, I help individuals understand how ways that they interact with others can interfere with having healthier, more satisfying relationships and personal lives. In counseling clients will
  • gain a better understanding of themselves and their needs
  • learn more effective communication skills
  • reduce relationship conflict and stress
  • create more satisfying couple, step family, step kid, friend, and family relationships"
  • paula@paulaschild.com


Leslie:  Very well stated. That about covers exactly what causes PSTD.  When you read my book, after it is published, you will see how these factors in my childhood and adulthood resulted in my PSTD.


Barb:  I’m so anxious to read your book.  Now, tell us what EMDR means and how it is used in therapy, please.

Leslie:  EMDR means Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing…..

Barb:  What on earth does that mean?  Have you been given that type of therapy?


Leslie:  (laughs slightly)…I knew that explanation would surprise you.  Yes, I’ve been through this in therapy, and it does sound kind of nutty, but it really worked for me.  For Some, our earliest attachments and relationships with our parents/family or caregivers is not as positive or productive as it could have been or should be.. There are lots of reasons for this, such as the mother’s depression,  father’s absence, or other stresses including poor parenting, physical or emotional abuse, alcoholism or other substance abuse by parents;  medical traumas, childhood illnesses and hospitalizations, or economic hard times to name just a few.


Barb:  That is quite a few!  How sad to think about children going through this kind of abuse and treatment that is worse than what you have already talked about.  Tell us more about this therapy.


Leslie:  Ok,  I’ve learned some big words in my therapy and what they mean in explaining where PSTD begins……(smiles, cute chuckle)…I’ll try to be succinct…  because the brain develops through interpersonal interaction, this problematic relationship affects how we perceive and experience the environment around us; including other important persons in our lives like spouses/partners, step kids, our biological children, friends, etc. Trying to resolve these relationship problems through traditional “talk” therapy is ineffective because it does not access the parts of the brain that contain the distressing relationship experiences.


Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) accesses these parts of the brain and allows therapists to work with these experiences. EMDR is also very useful for resolving traumas resulting from car accidents and violent crime. Those trained in EMDR use it successfully with individuals as well as couples to resolve relationship problems.


Barb:  Very well explained, but I’m curious as to the treatment itself and how you have learned to use it to help others.

Leslie:  Well….I don’t want to give away an example of that now…I hope you’ll read that in my book.  For more information about EMDR, please visit my website or blog.  Another site for a good explanation is
www.emdr.com, EMDR Institute, Inc.  
The EMDR Institute™, founded by Dr Francine Shapiro in 1990.


Barb:  Understood.  Thanks for what you’ve told us about EMDR.  It makes more sense to me now.  Leslie, what about Brainspotting?  Do we have time today to cover that somewhat? 


Leslie:  Sure.  Again….LOL….big words that I never knew before my therapy…but I know them well now.  I’ll be brief on Brainspotting also, because my book will cover that therapy in more detail.  Quite a long time ago EMDR therapist and psychologist, Dr. David Grand, developed Brainspotting, another technique that accesses the parts of the brain that store painful experience and relationship problems. “Brainspots” or eye positions allow us to neurobiologically locate, focus, process, and release experiences and symptoms out of reach of the conscious mind and its cognitive and verbal capacities.  “Brainspotting”  is a powerful, focused treatment method that works by identifying, processing and releasing core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation and a variety of challenging symptoms.” He has trained in Brainspotting and uses it with patients -  individuals and couples  -  struggling with relationship problems in their couple’s relationship, step families, and at work.  If anyone wants more information on Brainspotting, please go to www.biolateral.com/brainspotting.htm
BRAINSPOTTING.PRO


Is that enough information to tease you into studying this subject more to understand better what I’ve gone through?  As I said before….you can find all kinds of information by reading my book.


Barb:  I think our brains have been tickled quite enough for today.  Well done, Leslie.  I’m so glad you are here to tell others about your plight and your journey as a different person into the future.  You have been through so much negativity and pain in your life.  I’m so glad you’re past that now and recovered.


Leslie:  Thank you, Barb.  I’m so thankful for the opportunity to share all of this with others.


Barb:  Leslie, When we’ve chatted before, I heard you mention veterans PSTD.  I think many of us relate PTSD to those veterans involved in combat and don’t survive the emotional impact of what they’ve been through.   This is a sorrowful and sordid issue and how did you become involved in understanding their severe problems with PTSD?  Have you included any stories of veterans as well as other victims of this disorder?


Leslie:  Yes I wrote about my father who suffers PSTD in only one chapter of my book, but not in other chapters.  My book is mostly about me because it is a memoir about me,  but in my family background I explain about my dad’s PTSD so readers would have a sense to understand that the parental neglect wasn’t his fault because he was dealing with so much trauma himself.  Also my mother was an alcoholic.


Barb:  That does indeed sound quite heavy.  Can we look forward tomorrow to hearing more about your dad. 


Leslie:  Yes, I’d like to talk about my dad.  His life has not been easy and he did serve in Vietnam which resulted in extreme trauma and deep psychological changes in his personality.  By the grace of God, he is still living, but is not well.


Barb: Yes, the grace of God has covered many in their need.  Praise the Lord!  You and your family are in my daily prayers and I am sure other’s prayers as well.  Leslie, I appreciate your discussing this painful time and your triumph.  Thank you and we'll look forward to seeing you tomorrow.


Friends, please return tomorrow to hear about Leslie’s dad and some of his struggles.  We don’t want to overplay the importance of this devastating disease, PTSD; but we don’t want to underplay it either.


God Bless All of You and Yours,
Barb
