    Episode 37 - Boundaries in a Pandemic

    Hey Y'all, Hey!! It's been a month since we were last here. My time off has been beautiful even during these uncertain times. Taking time to rest and reflect has been most helpful while navigating the challenges 2020 brings. 
     
     
    This week will be discuss implementing "Pandemic Boundaries" because ummmh, boundaries bring balance. I don't know if you've felt like me during this pandemic, but it's been exhausting. Specific 'pandemic boundaries' have helped me as states begin to and continue to reopen. 
     
     
    If you need help setting boundaries and/or enforcing them, this episode is for you.

    Episode 36 - Juneteenth, Racism, B.L.M. & More w/Guest Host: Erik Wilson

    Episode 36 - Juneteenth, Racism, B.L.M. & More w/Guest Host: Erik Wilson

    Hiatus.... What hiatus?? What I thought would be a 4 week break has turned into a pivotal time in our nation and culture. I've found myself researching, educating, weeping, angry, inspired, motivated, saddened at the state of the lives of BLACK PEOPLE. I couldn't sit still. I couldn't be quiet. It would be remise of me not to drop this episode on today, Juneteenth as we witness a shift in our voices and our fight. We have to do the work. Do it tired. Do it scared. Just Do It, period.
    About our Guest: Erik Wilson is a teacher with Hampton City Schools. His passion for education comes from his desire to to service the youth in the community - the same community which was pivotal in his formal education. Mr. Wilson is a degree holder from both, Howard University and The Ohio State University.
    Mr. Wilson provides us with a ton of literature in this episode, you may want to write those down. Knowledge is key.

Juneteenth Podcast

Re: the Juneteenth show, I was annoyed the way you and your guest kept saying ‘the slaves’. These are your people... African People who were ENSLAVED. So it’s the enslaved Africans, the enslaved people! The way you speak of your people, your history needs to be w a clear view of your ancestors who were born Africans (not slaves) and who were stolen from their country and enslaved in the USA!
