Nancy Roman | Posted 11.26.2015 | Fifty

I want to be born again in exactly the same circumstances to exactly the same family. But when I come to those pivotal decisions in my life -- those 'forks in the road', so to speak -- I want to choose the OPPOSITE this time around.

You Are the Variable

It's all on you for your life and it's all on me for mine. So, what's it going to be next time you end up in a less than desirable situation, are you going to turn inward and take responsibility for how you got there? Or are you going to lash out? The choice is yours, no one else's.

When It Comes to Creating Habits, You're Only Ever One Choice Away

Making a change and getting a new habit to stick can be hard. Especially in the early days. Enter a moment of stress, exhaustion or emotional strain and poof! Suddenly, the early motivation we had to change has gone out the window and we disappointingly find we have returned to our old ways.

And I'm scared to put my agency behind something because I'm distinctly uncomfortable with the idea of slinging my pack over my shoulders and walking over the horizon, knowing I'll never return to this place again.

Freezing Your Eggs at Fortysomething

I want women to know to just freeze their eggs if they want to. And for younger women, take a minute when you're in your 20's or 30's and just freeze them if you think having kids later in life is important to you. Because life happens - and sometimes things you think will line up, don't.

It takes a person with great courage to look inward and figure out why life isn't going according to plan. Maybe there's a measure of success but you know it could be marginally better. Okay, significantly better!

My Transgender Life: Choices

Grace Anne Stevens

I have made many choices in my life. Some turned out well and some were less successful. One choice in my life was to seek and follow my truth. It really does matter that it took me so many years before I did this. I never look back; I never ask that useless "what if" question.

Starting now, we need to get over ourselves. We need to know that, sometimes, looking bad is actually a good thing...because it means we're trying something new, we're stretching ourselves, we're taking on a new adventure.

The middle ground is terrifying, but in the end, it is the most liberating place there is. If I can hold my own hand, stay responsive to the moment and stay connected to my feelings, I always have the space to make another choice and to redirect if I veer off course.

I've come to the troubling realization that people have found yet another bias that only serves to divide us. This bias lies in a new form of exclusionary bias or soft bigotry -- education bigotry.

It's 1937 on a hot Sunday afternoon in Hempstead Long Island, the town of my birth -- 45 minutes from New York City. I am 14 years old. My mother and father had gone to see a polo match in Westbury, where all the rich Long Islanders, the Vanderbilt's and the Astor's lived.

Wake up and ask yourself: how can I serve today? How can I embody love? How can I bring joy? How can I leave this world a better place? Have a spirit of service as you go about your day. Be a blessing, good company, an inspiration to others. You get more of what you give, so if you lack love, joy or abundance, find a way to help others find it. It will return to you a hundredfold.
