Recently, I attended the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Chicago. This year, several sessions addressed the important question of "value" in cancer care, with an emphasis on maintaining or improving quality of care while reducing the cost of care.

These people desperately need all the assistance they can get. It will help them preserve their own well-being. It will also help them improve their caregiving since no one can be a good caregiver if they're burned out all the time.

I see a common theme in the African American community -- a tolerance of the current state. "This system wasn't made for us, that's just how it is," I hear. This mentality permeates through world famous academics, and is widely read in higher education.

When you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or unmotivated, it's easy to isolate yourself if you have introverted tendencies or work alone. Yet often, the best way to make it through a difficult time in your business is to reach out to others.

The Ask

I'd like to call attention to the nurturing of our creative and professional selves, an aspect not always so well attended to. We always hear about the proverbial "boy's club" in business, politics, and the professional arena -- can we do a sound check on our "sisterhood" -- can we say the same?

In the end it really came down to acceptance. Accepting what I couldn't change, taking the situation for what it was and maybe even trying to learn something from it, and freeing myself to put my energy into things I actually could control: being positive, being grateful for the good in my life, and appreciating the love that was all around me.

Unless it is a cultural taboo, do not shy away from mentioning the dead person's name or talking about the situation. If he or she had been arrested, you would use their name and talk about the details. A horrible thing has happened, and many people are hurting.

Empathy: The Missing Link Between Parents and Childfrees

Let's get something straight: My complaining about my corner of motherhood is not an invitation to be patronized or blamed from my parenting choices. It does not signify a lack of love for my children, or that I am delusional about either the big picture or the minutiae of parenting.

Carole Brody Fleet | Posted 06.28.2014 | Fifty
Carole Brody Fleet

I had been widowed just over a year and well into my own Healing Journey when my mother gave me some very wise advice (which I both follow and dole out to this day). She told me to stop and look back at how far I had progressed since that awful season in time when my husband passed away. When I actually took the time to stop and examine how far I had progressed to that point (and have progressed since that time many years ago), I started worrying less about being "over it" and started appreciating the healing that I had accomplished instead.

Most women are conditioned to believe that their hopes and dreams should dim in comparison to a mans. How often do you hear of men quitting their jobs because their woman got a new position that requires them to relocate? What about men choosing to stay at home with their children while the woman continues to further her career? Hardly ever.
