I have gained experiential wisdom from the loves of my life. Some lessons were exceptionally good. Some were simply enlightening. But, they all were essential in making me a better-than-I-used-to-be human…in progress. A- absence is bad for the heart. B- breathing deeply is an art form. C- cuddling cures a bad day. D- destiny is fluid. E- exes don’t need a eulogy every day. F- forgiveness propels you forward. G- God is very detail oriented. H- habit is a poor excuse for cheating. I- imagi-Nation is a great place to travel. J- joy—real joy—comes from within. K- kindness in a…

Their Eyes Are Not Watching God

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

“It takes courage to grow in public.”—Bishop T.D. Jakes The fact is we ALL have public lives. Big Sister is everywhere and her eyes are not watching God. Social media posts, volunteerism, job, dating, classes…keep us in the windows of the world, on display every day. Most of us think celebrities, elected leaders, and VIP’s are the only ones who have a high profile existence. They are constantly in front of cameras. Every word and action is closely scrutinized and added to the fragmented collages we create from snapshots of their daily lives. The most fascinating thing is how quick…

Why Doesn’t Batwoman Have A Sidekick?

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

Balance, as in life balance, might as well be a four-letter word because it seems like a no-no for us grinders. I know people who won’t even admit when they are tired or overwhelmed. But if we want our sons, daughters, loved ones, or acquaintances to have balanced lives that include work, rest, and play, then we need to role-model that balance. If your actions say you can do everything at any time without any help, don’t complain when everyone is happy to let you be Batwoman and save the world. Why doesn’t Batwoman have a sidekick anyway, like Batman,…

Love Thy Neighbor But Watch Your Purse!

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

Have you ever noticed how good some people–men, in particular–are at answering only the part(s) of your question they feel like addressing? For example, recently, someone with whom I contracted to do a job did not follow up as promised. This is the verbatim text exchange with that party: 12:04 p.m. (Dr. mOe) “I’ve inquired about when you can meet in person with my business partner and me twice. You have not responded, it seems difficult to reach you. Do you have another job? ” 1:46 pm (Response) “Where are you trying to reach me? This number or email is…

Juggling for Beginners

Posted by | blog, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

I like jugglers. I’ve seen professional clowns juggle at the circus and executives juggle at the office. The execs call it time management or maximizing efficiency but the tasks are very similar.  The definition of juggle is “cope with by adroitly balancing.” You may balance bowling pins or projects by constantly reprioritizing in order not to drop anything. The interesting fact about this activity is that no matter how many things you juggle, you only have your hands on two things at any given time. The rest are in the air, on your desk, or they get dropped. Knowing your…

Why Is Maya Angelou Famous?

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, talk show guest | No Comments

I originally published this blog in 2012 but I am still mourning the passing of my shero while simultaneously celebrating her amazing life. She was truly a gift to mankind. I’m also attaching a wonderful Master Class that was broadcast on Oprah Winfrey’s network for those of you unfamiliar with the depth and breadth of her body of work. My oldest son asks me, “I don’t understand something. Why is Maya Angelou famous?” I swallow my first reaction and remind myself he is 25 years old and Dr. Angelou is 83. I tick off her literary award winning novels like…

What It Takes To Be A Survivor

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, speakers, talk show guest | No Comments

February 18, 2014 I celebrated my 2-yr cancerversary. Until recently, I have generally avoided using the word “survivor” to refer to myself because I truly intend to be free of disease someday against all odds. As my type of sarcoma (GIST) has no known cure (yet), I was moved to look up the word “survivor” a few weeks ago. Survivor means: to continue to live; a person alive after an event in which others have died; to exist. It does not mean you are healed, rescued, no longer facing challenges or even that you won’t die eventually. It means–right now–I’m…

One World Theatre and Kirk Whalum (News Article)

Posted by | blog, dr moe anderson, empowerment, life balance, monica anderson, motivation, self-improvement, speakers, talk show guest | No Comments

Austin’s One World Theatre, a top-tier venue for musicians and music lovers is also one of the best kept secrets in the Live Music Capitol of the World. Visitors flock to the narrow sidewalks of Sixth Street to hear live music gush through the shingles of bustling bars and rain on their eardrums. In contrast, ten miles away, One World sits on a sun bleached plateau in the Hill Country overlooking the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve. The architecture of the Tuscan-style Villa, along with the breathtaking view bring new meaning to the word “syncopation” as the quality of this theater’s…
