Did you miss me? The hiatus was short but refreshing, and now I'm back with all new episodes! This first one of 2016 features NO GUESTS; instead the content still comes from others with my take on it--I call it "Read to Me, Ree!"
In this new Read to Me, Ree! series, I curate articles of interest and share enlightening passages that will make you think. In this episode, I'm reading excerpts from three articles by Sylvia High, Erykah Badu and Seth Godin. What a mix! They are challenging us to consider our false pretenses,the lack of life fulfillment, and whether the pursuit of your calling is a worthy task.

Our culture teaches us that as women, we must constantly sacrifice our wants or needs for others, and that thinking of doing anything special for yourself is selfish or unspiritual. Many women think their dream is just a dream and never take the step to make it a reality. In this episode with Talisa Beasley, we discuss:

Children love to pretend. But when you become an adult, you're not supposed to continue playing pretend, right? So why are so many grown ups still pretending? Either they are busy deceiving others or self-deceived.
In this episode, I talked with the author of The Invitation to Love, Darren Pierre, Ph.D about:

Just because you can get it on and pull it up, doesn't mean you should wear it outside. There's just some things you can't "unsee." And the poor taste in fashion--being a little more trashy than classy--trickles to our kids. Some kids are growing up with female influences that are not the best examples about how to present yourself. Or they’re taking their cues on appearance and beauty from celebrities on ratchet reality TV shows. My guest, life stylist and designer Kionica Tolbert of @UniquelyHooked in Dallas, TX breaks it all down.
In this episode, Kionica and I discuss:
When our spouse, partner or significant other hurts us, we sometimes feel justified to respond with anger, guilt, or sarcasm. It may make us feel better for a moment, but it rarely produces the results we are hoping for. There is a quote from a book called Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs, and he says: You can be right, but wrong at the top of your voice. In essence, what this means is that we can be "right" in our assessment of the situation and still be "wrong" in how we respond. We should treat each other with respect, even in the midst of conflict. And being kind and respectful is more likely to lead to reconciliation, because being kind, respectful, tolerant, and patient even in the face of hurt feelings allows your partner to focus on his or her mistakes, rather than your response.

It can be scary to try to step out and do something new, especially when it comes to your career and your relationships. But instead of asking yourself, “What if I fail” or “What if I can't do it?”, but rather, “What happens if I DON'T?” So many people wonder what will happen if they step out on something and fail, but what about if they never try?
As you coast through your Facebook timeline, does it not seem that your "friends" are living a fabulous life? Do you ever feel a smidge of discontent? Or maybe it's not personal relationships, but business successes that drive you a little crazy on the inside with each one you see? And if it affects you a certain way, what goes on in the minds of teens? They get so much of their sense of self-worth and ideals from their peers and interactions on social media.
