Own It! How appropriate it is on International Women’s Day to face the world as it is. Making this conscious choice to go up close, and examine our beliefs today and everyday is empowering. It takes courage to critically ask: Where did these beliefs came from? Do these beliefs now need to change in light of new understandings? This journey must be prepared for before it is begun.
Feel It! It can feel scary and unsettling to have our core beliefs challenged. Especially when those beliefs are revealed to be untrue or based on bias and mistakes. Yet, it is the honor of being human to learn, stretch and grow. Making space for our thoughts, feelings and actions to constantly develop is a sign of maturity, and a civic responsibility. Yet, it is emotionally hard to do sometimes.
Live It! These online courses are designed to prepare those who are willing to undertake this classic human hero’s journey that results in seeing life as it is. The courses are one hour each, with transcripts and audio. Completion of the courses can lead to personal and social transformation because it reveals how to live a human life that is rich with purpose, meaning, and a truer understanding of others and ourselves.
Love It! Sign up for the courses and embrace the new beginnings that await.

Own It! Note the human error in linking this day to an event that did not occur (a 1908 strike of the International Ladies Garment Worker’s Union.) Let’s not let this be a stumbling block to the spirit of protecting our human rights and its rich global history. So long as there is a desire to produce, create, buy and sell, the need for restraint and oversight of these economic activities will continue. It is a necessary element of economics and human rights.
Feel It! Today is International Women’s Day and I am excited. Remembering to hold an awareness of human history, our relationships with economic development and human rights, is an act that feels astonishing.
Live It! Check out UNESCO, Wiki, the Google Doodle and search, to remember our human history. Get out there and march, and/or get Social Media active: Tweet, Follow, Like the events of the day. Make a note on your calendar for next year’s celebration, with plans to become more involved in 2018.
