Identity In A Hall Of Mirrors

Jane Simon, M.D. | Posted 10.07.2016 | GPS for the Soul
Jane Simon, M.D.

To the extent that we are mirrored, encouraged and acknowledged for our achievements and our creative pursuits, we are unified within ourselves. To the degree that we are perceived through a distorted mirror, we are torn asunder and may search for approval at a cost to our real self and creativity.

In a sense, Donald Trump is correct that women who have abortions if the procedure is banned should face "some sort of punishment." Before you misconstrue my opinion, please note that I have always been an advocate of pro-choice.

Snuggling on the sofa with my eight-year daughter one evening, a commercial for the nightly news hinted of a sensational story about the 2016 political candidates. My daughter looked at me, with sadness in her eyes, "Mommy, I don't want Trump to be president." "Why is that, baby?" I ask. "Because half of my friends would disappear from school!"

Facing Fears and Insecurities as an Adoptive Parent

Lakshmi Iyer | Posted 11.30.2016 | Parents
Lakshmi Iyer

It hit me then that, the fear that people kept alluding to stems from a lack of acceptance that my children have other families. People who have a place at the table so to speak. I don't know if it is because we crossed racial lines or if the fact that they were toddlers when we became their parents, their heritage is a real, living presence in our lives.

One of the biggest fears that I think we all have is the fear of success, and the fear to discover our true essence and potential. What if you discover all that you really are able to achieve? What if you find a more direct way to successfully conquer your goals but where are you going to first need to test all your fears, prove your worth, your principles and your integrity?

When someone says the word "bravery" out loud it sounds like it's from a book on noblemen or knights. I can almost hear the clank of sword on shield. Call it medieval if you want, but I believe in trying to be brave.

If you're not where you want to be, or doing what you want to do. Change it. Pursue a new path. Take a chance. Stop making excuses for why you can't or won't and step outside your comfort zone or you'll never find what you're looking for and what you think you're missing.
