On March 14, 2015, the National Empowerment Group, Inc., a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization & J. MOST are hosting the 7th Annual Women Unite to Win - Women's Appreciation Banquet at the luxurious Radisson Blu Mall of America Hotel. Each year they select an important cause involving women in the community that have motivated, educated and empowered others. This year they are honoring some of Minnesota's prominent musical legends. These phenomenal women, who have paved the way for many musicians have agreed to collaborate with the National Empowerment Group, Inc. and use this event as a platform to bring HIV/AIDS awareness to the community. I am honored to share information about this grand event.

Lately, I've been dealing with some individuals who are constantly talking about the things that happened to them in their past. I am comfortable with this because this happens to be something that I write about occasionally. I share with my readers the importance of letting go of their past and how to move on from past experiences that may be preventing them from achieving their goals. But truthfully, there are so many individuals who are not able to move on very easily. So after much thought and insight into this, I discovered some of the reasons why so many are drawn to events that have already happened to them and why they reminisce on the past and why their past has such a hold on them. Whether they're thinking about the good times or bad times, there is something that draws them in.

Here are a few things to consider as we work to help facilitate healing for the Black family.
Motivational Moments: Recognizing the heroes in your family

Today I talked with my sister about the elders in our family who are all gone away now. We reminisced about all the time we spent learning and listening to the adults talk about how things were when they were young. As kids, we thought those stories were boring and didn't have anything to do with what was going on in our lives at that moment. But looking back I now realize that everything they talked about is still very relevant today.
