Lisa Rinna Changes Her Hairdo for the First Time in 20 Years Using Drugstore Dye

As Brandi Glanville once told Lisa Rinna in season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: ‘You’ve had the same hairdo for 20 years!” Well, not anymore.

The Melrose Place alum debuted her new darker hairstyle on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday, after the third and final part of the RHOBH reunion special aired on Bravo.

“I mean, I wanted to try something new, and you know, I’ve had the same hairdo,” Rinna, 52, explained to host Andy Cohen about her coiffed strands. “For 20 years I’ve had the same hairdo and I thought, ‘Why not?’ You know?”

The mother of two also added that the hair transformation was a bit of a spontaneous decision that was influenced by the recent Met Gala.

“I darkened it a little bit. I went to the drugstore last night, and I got this fanciful – I don’t know what it is. It’ll wash out,” she said. “Because my highlights were all crazy all over the place and I thought, ‘I’ll just darken it a little bit.’ I had a vision. It was sort of, like, for the Met Ball, the ‘Manus Machina’ look for the Met Ball.”

So will this darker color be permanent change? “I like my hairdo though,” she clarified. “I really do.”

Rinna’s signature, short hairstyle previously featured streaks of honey blonde highlights. She most memorably sported brunette locks in April 2015 when she ditched her shaggy pixie cut for dark Kardashian-esque extensions in response to Glanville’s insults about her hair.

One of the reasons Rinna likes to rock a bob is because husband of close to 20 years Harry Hamlin prefers a shorter ‘do.

“Harry likes it. He always says, ‘Keep it short.’ So I like to keep my husband happy; that is not news,” she said during a Access Hollywood co-hosting gig in April 2015.

This Kendall Jenner Vs. Britney Spears Fashion Faceoff Was 14 Years in the Making

We’ve already caught Kendall Jenner channeling Britney Spears in the past, and now the supermodel just took her appreciation for all things ’90s style to the next level by wearing almost the same exact diamond choker as Brit, 14 years after the pop princess first rocked it.

7 Years Younger (Illustrated)


Follow this plan-it works!” says Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor and Vice-chair of Surgery, NYP-Columbia Medical Center, and Host of The Dr. Oz Show. Look younger, stay slimmer, feel sexier. no matter what your age! This revolutionary plan to reverse the signs of aging kicks off with a 7-day Jumpstart plan offering all the tools you need to start your total rejuvenation. Then you’ll follow the 7-week, science-based program with a holistic approach to looking and feeling younger. Its 7 age erasers cover every base with special regimens for skin care, makeup, hair care, nutrition and diet, fitness, brain fitness, and emotional health. With this program you can “de-age” your skin, use makeup and hair smarts to get a youthful look, rehab your diet and exercise habits to lower your risk of age-related diseases and to lose weight, learn to sharpen your mind, and nurture your emotional health. You’ll be surprised at how much you can turn back the clock on your own-without stepping near a plastic surgeon’s office, or spending a fortune on expensive beauty products. The scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute rigorously tested more than 400 beauty products and conducted more than 5,000 lab tests over the course of two years to find the anti-aging products that really work. Then ten test panelists went on the plan. The life-transforming results? One woman lost 12 pounds, another lost an amazing 10 inches from around her waist, and a third restored the glow and smoothness of her skin-improvements that were confirmed by scientific testing. Yet another tester emerged looking more glamorous than she’d looked since she first had kids. As one of the testers said, “There are a lot of diet and exercise programs out there on the market. And there are a lot of beauty tips you can get, but ‘7 Years Younger’ has taken all of those things and put them into a one stop shopping experience for your overall beauty and health and mindset.” “What’s great about the program,” says Good

You Can Help Pick This Year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductees

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just announced this year’s nominees for induction into its ranks. The 15 nominees — including Janet Jackson, Nine Inch Nails, The Smiths and Chaka Khan — span many genres, styles and time periods, though to qualify, they have to have released their first album or single at least 25 years ago. 

Here’s the full list of nominees, in alphabetical order:

  • Chicago
  • Cheap Trick
  • Deep Purple
  • The Cars
  • Chaka Khan

  • The J.B.’s
  • Janet Jackson

  • Nine Inch Nails
  • The Smiths
  • The Spinners

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — located in Cleveland, Ohio — doesn’t have a set number of slots open for induction each year, though a representative said that they usually aim to admit five performers, plus several more in other categories. 

The final list of inductees will be determined by votes from more than 800 musical artists, professionals and historians from around the world; each will be able to select up to five of the nominees. 

In addition, fans everywhere will be able to vote for inductees online — including right here:

The five artists that get the most votes from online fans will be added to a “fans ballot” that will be tallied along with the ballots from the Hall of Fame’s panel.

Jon Hamm And Jennifer Westfeldt Split After 18 Years As A Couple

You may have already lost count of how many celebrity couples have broken up this summer, but here’s one more right as Labor Day brings an unofficial close to the season: Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have split after 18 years as partners, according to a statement they released Monday to multiple outlets.

“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history. We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward,” the couple said.

People Magazine claims that the last time the two attended a public event was at the “Wet Hot American Summer” Netflix premiere’s after-party in July.

The two released a statement back in April denying rumors they had broken up.

The month before, Hamm completed a rehab stint for alcohol and noted Westfeldt had supported him during his struggle.

Roksanda Marks 10 Years with Capsule Collection

Roksanda Turns 10: Roksanda Ilincic’s Roksanda label marks its 10th anniversary this year, and the London-based designer has dipped back into her archive to celebrate the milestone.
The designer has this week launched a 10-piece capsule collection that’s inspired by Ilincic’s back catalogue of designs — which make a feature of bold colors and strong silhouettes — over the past 10 years.
The looks include the Margot dress that Ilincic first showed in spring 2012, a shift dress with tuliplike sleeves, which she’s redone in tomato red and a voluminous, tiered smock dress, which originally came in deep purple, but is now in black.
Ilincic said looking back at her archive, she believes that “as a designer you evolve and change season to season.” “Culture has changed and the economic situation has changed,” Ilincic mused, noting that all those influences impact her aesthetic.
And while Ilincic launched her line on the London Fashion Week schedule for spring 2006 with “12 occasion dresses,” the line now comprises looks that her woman can wear “seven days a week,” the designer said. Alongside ready-to-wear, the label also includes a children’s collection, Blossom, and swimwear, while looking ahead she has categories such as handbags and fine jewelry in her

These Photos Capture The Spirit Of New Orleans, 10 Years After Katrina

It’s been a slow recovery since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans 10 years ago, but residents are hopeful that the city is returning to its roots.

New Orleanians are repopulating their city, reestablishing festive traditions, repairing historic landmarks, rebuilding churches and reinvigorating the educational system.

Things like “Who dat Saints” and Mardi Gras have always been staples in its rich history — but it is the people who have undeniably made New Orleans the cultural hub it is today. 

President Obama described the city as a place where “the jazz makes you cry and the funerals make you dance,” during his speech in New Orleans on Thursday.

Here are 35 uplifting photos that show resilient New Orleanians and capture the spirt of the city, one decade after Katrina:

100-Year-Olds Married 75 Years Share Secrets To Wedded Bliss

Seventy-five years after saying their “I dos,” Lisette and Walter Kimmel celebrated their platinum anniversary by cutting a cake at the same time they both walked down the aisle, all those years ago.

The couple have not only defied the odds by staying married for so long, they’ve also both accomplished the great feat of living to 100. They’ve been together for three-fourths of their lives.

 

The pair met when they were just 22 at a Maryland church. They married in that same church just a few years later. Lisette played the organ and Walter was in the choir. They went on to have two children, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

They celebrated their milestone with a party at the Charlestown Retirement Community where they now live, with staff and other residents. They enjoyed cake accompanied by classic songs, including “What a Wonderful World.”

As to their secret to happily wedded bliss for 75 years, they advice was short and sweet. “Stay true to each other,” said Lisette in a release. “Be honest with each other and enjoy each other.” Walter said, “Be happy with each other every day of your life.”

Congratulations!

Reda Mill Celebrates 150 Years

Reda has been producing luxury fabrics in Biella, Italy, since 1865. Now the company is on a worldwide journey to mark its 150th anniversary. That journey started with an event in Milan in February, followed by one in London and then New York. It will continue to Berlin in November.
“We thought we would go where our customer is,” said Ercole Botto Poala, chief executive officer, at the New York event. “So we went to our most important markets to celebrate.”
To commemorate the milestone, Reda partnered with The Woolmark Co. on a multisensory exhibit showcasing the process that takes merino wool from raw fiber to finished fabric. The exhibit included photographs commissioned from the Magnum Photos Agency that will be used in a book, “150,” to be released later this year as a tribute to the company.

British Label Wolsey Marks 260 Years With Made in the U.K. Collection

British heritage label Wolsey, known for its woolens and outerwear, marks its 260th anniversary this year and the label’s creative director Chris Lee has gone back to the company’s long-established roots to create a capsule collection to mark the milestone.
The Made in the U.K. collection launches in September, and comprises two coats, a sweater and accessories that take their cues from Wolsey’s archives.
All the designs are made at Wolsey’s factory in Leicester, England.
The label began in the same area as a hosiery manufacturer in 1755, and evolved over the years to incorporate outerwear, military garments and sportswear.
In 2010, Jamey Hargreaves — whose family founded British retailer Matalan — acquired the label, and set about relaunching it as a heritage and performance sports brand.
Prices for the collection start at 50 pounds, or $ 78, for a beanie hat.
The line will launch at Wolsey’s London flagship on Soho’s Brewer Street.

112 Greene Street: The Early Years, 1970-1974


112 Greene Street was one of New York’s first alternative, artist-run venues. Started in October 1970 by Jeffrey Lew, Gordon Matta-Clark and Alan Saret, among others, the building became a focal point for a young generation of artists seeking a substitute for New York’s established gallery circuit, and provided the stage for a singular moment of artistic invention and freedom that was at its peak between 1970 and 1974. This extensively researched volume is the culmination of David Zwirner’s January 2011 exhibition of the same name, gathering a number of works exhibited at 112 Greene Street (by Matta-Clark, Vito Acconci, Tina Girouard, Suzanne Harris, Jene Highstein, Larry Miller, Alan Saret and Richard Serra among others), alongside extensive interviews with many of the artists involved, a timeline of the early years at 112 Greene Street and installation views of the 2011 exhibition.

Jimmy Fallon To Host ‘Tonight Show’ For Six More Years

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Just a few months after Jimmy Fallon marked his first anniversary as host of “The Tonight Show,” NBC has signed him for six more years.

Calling him “the best there is,” NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said Fallon, who turns 41 next month, will occupy the “Tonight” host chair until at least 2021.

Speaking to TV critics on Thursday, Greenblatt also announced that Rihanna will join “The Voice” as key adviser to the panel of judges, who will be Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Pharrell and Gwen Stefani.

He said new additions to the cast of the holiday production of “The Wiz Live!” include “Hairspray” co-star Elijah Kelley (in the role of the Scarecrow), singer-songwriter-actor Ne-Yo (as the Tin Man) and Oscar-winning songwriter and actor Common, who will play the Gatekeeper to Emerald City.

Previously announced cast members in the musical production, airing live Dec. 3, include Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, David Alan Grier, Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Stephanie Mills and Shanice Williams as Dorothy.

Greenblatt also had two words on whether Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump would ever return as host of “The Celebrity Apprentice”: “Absolutely not.”

Greenblatt said the show will not be back next season, but will return in the future with a new host. He didn’t speculate on whom that host might be, but said, “We’re obviously looking for a host who will make noise and is a big personality.”

Celebrating 20 Years, SITE Santa Fe Shows New Commissions and Collaborations

Celebrating 20 Years: SITE Santa Fe’s Collaborative Spirit

A significant anniversary invites a retrospective view, and for SITE Santa Fe’s 20th, the institution is doing just that, in a yearlong series of exhibitions featuring artists who have presented major works at SITE in the past. But for this 20th-anniversary celebration, SITE is not only looking back at its own history, or reprising past projects, rather refreshingly the exhibits that comprise “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” take the form of new work, commissions, and collaborations.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE (detail), 2014-2015. Courtesy of the artist.

SITE Santa Fe opened in 1995 with its first International Biennial: Longing and Belonging: From the Faraway Nearby, curated by Bruce Ferguson, and has since produced eight biennials, and over 80 exhibitions, helping to launch or galvanize the careers of numerous curators and artists. The notion of reconnecting with artists who have contributed to the institution’s history, taking a look at then and now, exemplifies SITE’s mission to form strong bonds with the international art community while cultivating deep roots within the community of Santa Fe and the wider Southwest region.

Amy Cutler, Cautionary Trail, 2005. Courtesy of the artist and Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, New York.

Presented in three installments, over spring, summer and fall, “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” first opened in March with work by Gregory Crewdson, Deborah Grant, Roxy Paine, Mary Reid Kelley with Patrick Kelley, Rose B. Simpson, and Jessica Stockholder. The fall installment, opening October 23, will feature installations by Terry Allen, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Wangechi Mutu with Edgar Arceneaux, and Susan Silton with The Crowing Hens. The summer exhibition of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” is currently on view, until October 4, with installations and collaborations by Ann Hamilton, Janine Antoni with choreographer Stephen Petronio, Amy Cutler with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, Harmony Hammond with artist Francis Cape, and Dario Robleto with historian Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter of Dust-to-Digital Records. While the wall texts throughout the show acknowledge the contributions of each of the artists to SITE Santa Fe’s exhibitions of the past–Ann Hamilton, for instance, showed in the first Biennial and Janine Antoni showed a major solo show at SITE in 2002–the focus rests on the artists’ current practices.

The installations in the current configuration of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” exhibit few connections between them, with each occupying its own discrete room in the gallery. But if there is one conceptual thread running throughout, it is the notion of collaboration–collaboration among artists, between artists and institutions, artists and choreographers, musicians, historians, and so on. A successful collaborative effort can achieve results that a single artist couldn’t produce on her own, a kind of synergistic effect that provides new contexts and new meanings to an artist’s work. In an unsuccessful collaboration, on the other hand, compromises become more apparent than cooperation, resulting in a situation where one person’s vision might supersede another to the detriment of the whole artwork. The wide range of artistic collaboration, both successful and unsuccessful, can be found in SITE Santa Fe’s current exhibition.

Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio, Honey Baby, 2013. Copyright Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio; Courtesy of the artists and Luhring Augustine, New York.

Janine Antoni’s collaboration with the choreographer Stephen Petronio, for instance, sheds new light on Antoni’s practice with regard to the grotesque and expressive potential of the human body–in this case a male dancer’s lithe form, emulating the movements of the body in utero–in a somewhat disturbing but entrancing video. And Dario Robleto’s collaboration with sound historians Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter results in a series of small vinyl albums–recordings of the human heart and early gospel spirituals–with extensive liner notes that convey a historical depth and artistic sensibility (despite the somewhat twee aesthetic), enhancing our apprehension of these early recordings visually, textually, and sonically.

The collaborative installation by painter Harmony Hammond and sculptor Francis Cape, Angle of Repose (2015), on the other hand, is less apparent as a collaboration at all. Comprised of one of Hammond’s layered monochrome paintings leaning against a wall and a collection of re-made handcrafted furniture by Cape, the two works are somewhat independent of each other, but their proximity yields a new conversation between the works. Their pairing seems more like a very astute curatorial choice, rather than a true collaboration that results in one unified work.

Amy Cutler, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

While Hammond and Cape’s collaboration demonstrates restraint and subtlety, Amy Cutler’s installation commits the sin of sensorial overload. Created with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, the installation sets out to devise a three-dimensional version of one of Cutler’s surreal paintings. Braided hair intertwined between aspen logs that form a primitive hut in the center of the gallery, lit from within, houses bundled lumps of more hair. An eerie soundtrack of breathing permeates the dark atmosphere. The ambience is meticulously crafted, but the literalness of such a proposal deprives the viewer of the sense of imagination and wonderment one can experience in the scenes of Cutler’s strange and richly detailed paintings.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE, 2014-2015, installation view, SITE Santa Fe, 2015. Courtesy of the artist. Photo: Eric Swanson.

At turns impressive, delightful, and poignant, Ann Hamilton’s installation is one of the most richly rewarding of the show. Created in cooperation with the University of Washington’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture’s Ornithology collection, the common SENSE · the animals (2014-2015) is comprised of digital scans of bird and animal specimens taken from the collection, printed on stacks of newsprint, and presented salon style across the whole room. Invited to tear off sheets of the newsprint and take some of the pictures home, viewers are confronted with the consequences of their impulse to consume–as each sheet is torn away, the installation is lessened, pointing to the ultimate finitude of natural resources. In the wake of the tragedy of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, Hamilton’s installation becomes all the more moving.

Marie Watt, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

The emphasis on collaboration at SITE Santa Fe is not a passing fancy, or just relevant to this particular exhibition, but rather is something that runs deep within the institution’s programming and curatorial mission. This is evidenced in a concurrent exhibition at the museum, Unsuspected Possibilities, supported by a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Grant, featuring works by Marie Watt, Leonardo Drew, and Sarah Oppenheimer. Marie Watt’s installation in particular perfectly and beautifully illustrates SITE Santa Fe’s continued commitment to collaborative processes and community engagement. The artist, who is of Iroquois descent, involved local Santa Fe students and community members to help embroider designs on fragments of Pendleton blankets, which were then assembled into magnificent constructions, and hung like an advancing regiment through the gallery space. It’s a breathtaking installation, made all the more impressive knowing the many hands that touched it.

Jon Stewart Proves Ridiculous Interviews Over The Years Were Real

Clear your schedule. You’re going to need a lot more than one moment of zen after this.

Jon Stewart says that a big question “The Daily Show” gets asked is, “Are the interviews they do real?” The show constantly seems to have ridiculous people who share polarizing views like denouncing the notion that President Obama is the Antichrist only because he is, in fact, the second coming of Hitler. You know, stuff like that. 

Surely, these can’t be serious, right?

Well, unfortunately …

Image: Tumblr

In order to prove the show didn’t distort peoples’ views, Stewart had Jessica Williams take a camera crew to contact past interviewees. And it looks like they’re still as ridiculous as ever.

The good news is at least person doesn’t think the president is the second coming of Hitler anymore. Now, he thinks he’s the son of Satan — which is pretty much back to the Antichrist theory again. So at least it’s nice everything is coming full circle.

Jon Stewart’s final “Daily Show” as host will air Thursday night, Aug. 6 at 11:00 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.

After Being Denied 73 Years Ago, 92-Year-Old Black Woman Finally Receives Her Library Card

Ninety-two-year-old Pearl Thompson was a student at Shaw University in 1942 when she attempted to check out a book from the Olivia Raney Library in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her school, which is an HBCU, didn’t carry the book she needed for a history class so she visited the local library. According to her daughter, Deborah Thompson, Pearl was denied a library card because she was black, so instead, she was sent to the building’s basement to read the book.

“I expected to go in and get a book,” Pearl told News & Observer.

Seventy-three years later, Pearl returned to Raleigh with her daughter and granddaughter and finally got her library card.

Pearl Thompson signs the back of her library card.

“She was fighting good health but she was determined to make this trip,” Deborah told HuffPost. She said Pearl is currently battling kidney disease and suffers from heart issues — but she wouldn’t let that stop her.

The Olivia Raney Library was the city’s first public library and later became a part of the larger Wake County Public Library system. In the 1960’s, it merged with Richard B. Harrison Library — a library Deborah said Pearl helped to launch — which only served blacks at the time. The Olivia Raney Library, which is now closed, serves as a local history library and the administration at Cameron Village Library, which opened right after Olivia Raney Library closed, held a ceremony in Pearl’s honor last week.

“We all felt that the presentation of Mrs. Thompson’s library card needed to be honored with a ceremony and we also wanted the opportunity to rectify a mistake of the past,” Ann Burlingame, deputy director of Wake County Public Libraries, told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.

After college, Pearl, who has always been an advocate for education, went on to become a teacher in Raleigh for nearly fifty years.

“I was determined that when I became a teacher every child would have an opportunity to learn to read,” Pearl said at the ceremony. “A little boy [had] Down’s syndrome and they said he would never learn to read. And I taught him to read. Even to the point he wrote books himself.”

Thompson moved to Ohio with her husband after 12 years as a teacher in Raleigh, and she now lives in Cincinnati where she taught for 37 years. Decades after her days in college, she said she doesn’t hold a grudge against the library and their poor treatment.

“I don’t hold any kind of hate in my heart, because that doesn’t do it,” she said. “That doesn’t get you there.”

40 Years of Stanford Research Found That People With This One Quality Are More Likely to Succeed

In the 1960s, a Stanford professor named Walter Mischel began conducting a series of important psychological studies.

During his experiments, Mischel and his team tested hundreds of children — most of them around the ages of 4 and 5 years old — and revealed what is now believed to be one of the most important characteristics for success in health, work and life.

Let’s talk about what happened and, more importantly, how you can use it.

The Marshmallow Experiment

The experiment began by bringing each child into a private room, sitting them down in a chair, and placing a marshmallow on the table in front of them.

At this point, the researcher offered a deal to the child.

The researcher told the child that he was going to leave the room and that if the child did not eat the marshmallow while he was away, then they would be rewarded with a second marshmallow. However, if the child decided to eat the first one before the researcher came back, then they would not get a second marshmallow.

So the choice was simple: one treat right now or two treats later.

The researcher left the room for 15 minutes.

As you can imagine, the footage of the children waiting alone in the room was rather entertaining. Some kids jumped up and ate the first marshmallow as soon as the researcher closed the door. Others wiggled and bounced and scooted in their chairs as they tried to restrain themselves, but eventually gave in to temptation a few minutes later. And finally, a few of the children did manage to wait the entire time.

Published in 1972, this popular study became known as The Marshmallow Experiment, but it wasn’t the treat that made it famous. The interesting part came years later.

The Power of Delayed Gratification

As the years rolled on and the children grew up, the researchers conducted follow up studies and tracked each child’s progress in a number of areas. What they found was surprising.

The children who were willing to delay gratification and waited to receive the second marshmallow ended up having higher SAT scores, lower levels of substance abuse, lower likelihood of obesity, better responses to stress, better social skills as reported by their parents, and generally better scores in a range of other life measures. (You can see the followup studies here, here, and here.)

The researchers followed each child for more than 40 years and over and over again, the group who waited patiently for the second marshmallow succeed in whatever capacity they were measuring. In other words, this series of experiments proved that the ability to delay gratification was critical for success in life.

And if you look around, you’ll see this playing out everywhere…

  • If you delay the gratification of watching television and get your homework done now, then you’ll learn more and get better grades.
  • If you delay the gratification of buying desserts and chips at the store, then you’ll eat healthier when you get home.
  • If you delay the gratification of finishing your workout early and put in a few more reps, then you’ll be stronger.

… and countless other examples.

Success usually comes down to choosing the pain of discipline over the ease of distraction. And that’s exactly what delayed gratification is all about.

This brings us to an interesting question: Did some children naturally have more self-control, and thus were destined for success? Or can you learn to develop this important trait?

What Determines Your Ability to Delay Gratification?

Researchers at the University of Rochester decided to replicate the marshmallow experiment, but with an important twist. (You can read the study here.)

Before offering the child the marshmallow, the researchers split the children into two groups.

The first group was exposed to a series of unreliable experiences. For example, the researcher gave the child a small box of crayons and promised to bring a bigger one, but never did. Then the researcher gave the child a small sticker and promised to bring a better selection of stickers, but never did.

Meanwhile, the second group had very reliable experiences. They were promised better crayons and got them. They were told about the better stickers and then they received them.

You can imagine the impact these experiences had on the marshmallow test. The children in the unreliable group had no reason to trust that the researchers would bring a second marshmallow and thus they didn’t wait very long to eat the first one.

Meanwhile, the children in the second group were training their brains to see delayed gratification as a positive. Every time the researcher made a promise and then delivered on it, the child’s brain registered two things: 1) waiting for gratification is worth it and 2) I have the capability to wait. As a result, the second group waited an average of four times longer than the first group.

In other words, the child’s ability to delay gratification and display self-control was not a predetermined trait, but rather was impacted by the experiences and environment that surrounded them. In fact, the effects of the environment were almost instantaneous. Just a few minutes of reliable or unreliable experiences were enough to push the actions of each child in one direction or another.

What can you and I learn from all of this?

How to Become Better at Delaying Gratification

Before we go further, let’s clear one thing up: for one reason or another, the Marshmallow Experiment has become particularly popular. You’ll find it mentioned in nearly every major media outlet. But these studies are just one piece of data, a small insight into the story of success. Human behavior (and life in general) is a lot more complex than that, so let’s not pretend that one choice a four-year-old makes will determine the rest of his or her life.

But…

The studies above do make one thing clear: if you want to succeed at something, at some point you will need to find the ability to be disciplined and take action instead of becoming distracted and doing what’s easy. Success in nearly every field requires you to ignore doing something easier (delaying gratification) in favor of doing something harder (doing the work and putting in your reps).

But the key takeaway here is that even if you don’t feel like you’re good at delaying gratification now, you can train yourself to become better simply by making a few small improvements. In the case of the children in the study, this meant being exposed to a reliable environment where the researcher promised something and then delivered it.

You and I can do the same thing. We can train our ability to delay gratification, just like we can train our muscles in the gym. And you can do it in the same way as the child and the researcher: by promising something small and then delivering. Over and over again until your brain says, 1. Yes, it’s worth it to wait and 2. Yes, I have the capability to do this.

Here are 4 simple ways to do exactly that:

  1. Start incredibly small. Make your new habit “so easy you can’t say no.” (Hat tip to Leo Babauta.)
  2. Improve one thing, by one percent. Do it again tomorrow.
  3. Use the “Seinfeld Strategy” to maintain consistency.
  4. Find a way to get started in less than two minutes.

Elizabeth Berkley Finally Embraces ‘Showgirls’ After All These Years

1995 just wasn’t ready for the campy brilliance of “Showgirls.” But 20 years after the film flopped in theaters its star, Elizabeth Berkley, has finally embraced the cult classic — and the film’s adoring fans.

On Saturday night, the former “Saved by the Bell” star gave a heartfelt speech before a screening of the film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles.

“This is such a special night, you don’t even know. This is 20 years in the making, I can’t believe I’m here with you. 4,000 people. 4,000 Nomis, 4,000 Cristals,” the 42-year-old actress told the massive crowd.

Berkely went on to say how she did everything her character Nomi Malone would have done to get this part.

“When a dream is happening, it’s unlike anything you can imagine. Which is why, when the movie came out, it was more painful than anything you can imagine,” she said. “While in 1995, it was such a different time when taking risks like that were not embraced. They were laughed at, they were shamed publicly, and to be a young girl in the center of that was something that was quite difficult.”

elizabeth berkley showgirls

Two decades ago, critics were not kind to Berkley or the NC-17 rated film, but critics be damned, as Berkley learned it’s the fans that matter.

“Tonight is like this magical full-circle moment, where I actually didn’t get to experience the sweetness of a screening with a crowd that embraced it. Tonight I want to thank you guys for giving me this gift of truly getting a full-circle moment of experiencing the joy with you,” she said, adding, “because you guys and the love you have for this movie have made this the cult film that it is.”

Berkley concluded her speech by telling the audience, “I hope that you grab life and go Andrew Carver on its ass. Just know that I love you guys so much and thank you for giving me strength and confidence to become the woman that I am.”

Berlin’s German Historical Museum Looks Back On 150 Years Of Gay Milestones

BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s main national history museum on Wednesday launched an exhibition tracing 150 years of gay history in the country, including the first uses of the term “homosexual,” the brutal Nazi-era repression of gays and gradual moves toward legal equality starting in the 1960s.

The exhibition at the German Historical Museum in Berlin, which is staging it together with the capital’s privately run Gay Museum, has been four years in the planning but is opening amid a new debate in Germany over whether to allow full-fledged marriage for same-sex couples. They have been able to enter civil partnerships since 2001 but much of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party is reluctant to go further. Culture Minister Monika Gruetters said at the show’s presentation that it “puts the current debate about legal equality into a historical context.” She said it shows “how hard-fought the progress we can speak of today was, not just legally but also in society’s perceptions.”

The show, “Homosexuality_ies,” opens to the public Friday and runs through Dec. 1, featuring photo and film material, artifacts including an electric shock device used for “aversion therapy” in the 1950s and an “A to Z” section exploring issues ranging from gay marriage to censorship.

One of the earliest exhibits is a handwritten 1868 letter from Vienna-born writer Karl Maria Kertbeny to a German advocate of legal reform, Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, which is believed to be the oldest written record anywhere of the words “homosexual” and “heterosexual.”

It also features the work of scientists such as sex researcher Magnus Hirschfeld, whose pioneering Institute for Sexual Research was shut down and looted shortly after the Nazis took power in 1933. The Nazi regime toughened the 1872 law criminalizing sex between men; West Germany changed the so-called “paragraph 175” to decriminalize it only in 1969.

Nazi Germany convicted some 50,000 homosexuals as criminals. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 gay men were deported to concentration camps. A room in the exhibition titled “In the Pink Triangle” explores the stories of men and women caught up in Nazi persecution.

Kelli O’Hara Receives “Our Leading Lady” Award for 15 Years On Broadway (VIDEO)

2015-06-12-1434133235-5861471-KelliSteve2.jpg

By Steve Schonberg; Video Producer: Meredith Ganzman

SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH THE INTERVIEW AND SEE KELLI RECEIVE THE “OUR LEADING LADY” AWARD!

On Sunday, June 7, famed Broadway actress and fan favorite, Kelli O’Hara (who I profiled here, last year) was finally recognized by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing for her remarkable contributions to the stage, taking home her very first TONY Award following a total of six nominations over several years.

In the weeks leading up, fans took to social media with a fervor, debating who exactly should win for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical. Many were in “Camp Kristin” for Chenoweth’s outstanding performance as Lily Garland in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of On The 20th Century. Others rooted for theater legend Chita Rivera and her performance as Claire Zachanassian in Kander and Ebb’s final musical, The Visit (which Rivera has said will likely be her final role on Broadway).

However, the support for O’Hara was fierce, and her fans were ultimately vindicated on TONY night as she received the award for her stunning and complex performance as Anna Leonowens in the Lincoln Center revival of The King and I.

Weeks before the TONY Awards, our team at Center On The Aisle (#COTA – the website I run in addition to contributing here on The Huffington Post) was also split, but peace came by acknowledging exactly what this incredible recognition represents. All three of these women were frontrunners, and deserved to win for different reasons. However, if the TONY Awards have a weakness, it’s that other than its Lifetime Achievement awards, they celebrate only a single performance–not the performer’s body of work and total contribution to the art form.

Realizing this, our team did a little research and found out that this year did not just bring Kelli her sixth nomination, her performance in The King and I marked a total of 15 years on Broadway, and her 10th Broadway show.

To acknowledge this, the #COTA team (with the help of a special celebrity guest included in the video below!) decided to take matters into our own hands and recognize Kelli O’Hara for all of these incredible performances (whether she won the TONY Award or not), which collectively have made her one of the most recognizable and talented actresses on stage today.

Check out the video below to see me present Kelli with Center On The Aisle’s first ever award, titled “Our Leading Lady.”

An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived With AIDS for Thirty Years

An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived With AIDS for Thirty Years


John Paul An Enlightened Journey: How I Lived with AIDS for Thirty Years John is a person with AIDS who was diagnosed with Kaposi sarcoma, an AIDS-related cancer on August 24, 1984, and was given one year to live, he had just turned thirty-four. John was invited to speak at the Sixth International AIDS Conference held in San Francisco in 1990 because he was considered a long-term survivor having lived with AIDS for six years. Prior to the conference, he was convinced death was inevitable because HIV/AIDS had just been identified a few years before and there was no known treatment. Stricken with fear and embarrassed by his physical appearance, caused by wasting, he isolated himself from his friends and society in general. It wasn’t long before he became so ill he was bed-ridden for one year. His roommates were terrified to even come near him, but occasionally one roommate would peek into his bedroom to see if he was still alive. Then one day he received a gift from a friend, it was a book about herbs and their healing properties. At the advice of his friend, who stated, “You can’t do nothing, you have to do something,” John studied this book from cover-to-cover and began to fight. Immersing himself in the challenge to acquire every bit of knowledge concerning his condition, John discovered a wealth of information on nutrition, herbal remedies, and the doctrine of mind, body, and spirit. Using herbs that are antiviral, anti-cancer, and ones that strengthen the immune system his health began to improve. For the next twenty-two years John used only natural substances and the quality of his life improved greatly. His book is not only about his battle with AIDS, but also the obstacles that have been laid in front of him through this journey: From discrimination, to taking part in demonstrations through the streets of San Francisco in an attempt to bring AIDS awareness to our government. To crossing the Mexican border purchasing a medication that showed promise in the figh

An Exclusive Peek Inside This Year’s Tony Awards Gala

Answer: Party at the Plaza Hotel into the wee hours!

Question: This Sunday at the American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards, after the last circular medallion is handed out at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, what happens next?

For the fifth year, the nominees, presenters and other VIPs hightail it to the famous and historic Plaza Hotel for a Tony gala for the ages. “We’re the only event that takes over the entirety of the Plaza Hotel including the Todd English Food Court, the Palm Court and the Terrace Room. That makes it very special,” says Charlotte St. Martin, president of The Broadway League, which presents the Tony Awards along with the American Theatre Wing.

This year’s theme is Marie Antoinette with shades of pink, flowers and crystal galore. “It’s very Versailles-looking, which certainly matches the decor of the Plaza,” says St. Martin. In fact, the shindig has been in the works for an entire year. As Heather Hitchens, president of the American Theatre Wing explains, “The Tonys is June 7. On June 8, we begin planning next year’s Tonys.”

The glam Tony gala is a collaboration of 24 different businesses. So what can the partygoers expect at this year’s gala? For a preview of the big night (from 1,800 glasses of champagne to 1,500 pieces of shrimp), click on this story at Parade.com

Boom: 100 Years of Fashion History in Under 3 Minutes

Check this out: The last century of Western fashion and women’s style has been neatly condensed in a quickie video that’ll take you less than three minutes to watch. Starting in 1915, you’ll go through decade by decade to see the full costume a lady of that era might have worn (prepare for more than a few Downton Abbey flashbacks at the beginning).

The retro looks are fascinating, but there’s also something super interesting about seeing the decades we all participated in given the same anthropological treatment. Imagining a museum of the future where a ’90s floral mini is displayed near a wasp-waisted dress accessorized with a parasol? Trippy.

Strength in Our 22 Years of Marriage

With today being my 22nd wedding anniversary, I am consumed with feeling nostalgic and hopeful; nostalgic for the wonderful years of memories we have had and hopeful for all of the new memories we have yet to create.

2015-05-23-1432403016-8560033-UsMackyDaves.jpg

Twenty-two years of happiness, of trying times, of struggling to make more money, of stress with our first jobs, of raising children, of stress with our second jobs, of building our first house, and of always loving each other… Those are the kind of years that make a marriage last.

I have learned a few essential lessons along this wonderful journey and I am fairly sure my husband has as well. One thing I know for absolute certain is that I wouldn’t trade those years for anything and I wouldn’t trade him for anyone. (Can I get a collective, “awwwww?”)

2015-05-23-1432403799-1283621-UsinFtLaud.jpg

Now and again, there is true strength in ignorance. We were the first of our friends to marry. Fortuitously or not, there was nobody to compare our situation to and nobody to guide or offer us advice. We did not realize if we were similar to our friends’ marriages and we did not have to listen to others tell us what we should or should not do for any given situation. We were undoubtedly on our own.

Our life together has spanned over two-plus decades. Upon reflection, I can say it is one sincerely filled with devotion, passion and a great deal of respect. Here is an abbreviated breakdown of what our history has (essentially) looked like.

1. Moving to a new city within 2 weeks of getting married.
2. Surviving an 8-year residency program.
3. Raising two babies (with me often as a single parent).
4. Coping with an unplanned autoimmune disease.
5. Struggling through several entrepreneurial endeavors.
6. Living in 4 different states together.
7. Losing grandparents.
8. Traveling to different countries (both together and apart).
9. Being scared with every hazard from the hospital.
10. Losing a parent.
11. Surviving our kids’ teenage years.
12. Building our dream home.

Life continues to get better and better as each year together passes. My husband and I have developed a special partnership and an extraordinary bond. He has become my truest friend, my confidant and my tower of strength. While those beginning years were certainly rough ones, our next phase is bound to be full of good health, countless laughter, fantastic travel and, most importantly, endless love.

Four Years Wiser, My Message for This Year’s Graduates

A little over four years ago, in one of my last articles for Holy Cross’ student newspaper, The Crusader, I offered a reflection — a “graduation message”, if you will — for my fellow Crusaders, the class of 2011.

Inspired by graduation season, I recently reread it and was reminded of how much my life has changed since then. Now four years into the “real” and working world, long gone are the “all-nighters”, the month-long vacations and the clearly defined sense of purpose that studying provides.

2015-05-26-1432673655-915447-IMG_7307.jpg

What remains, however, is a lesson I had learned and shared at the near end of my college experience:

“I have come to learn and to believe that in every met expectation and unforeseen surprise, every accomplishment and failure, in every loss and gain, every victory and defeat, in every mistake and intention, and in every realized dream and unfulfilled hope, there is always a lesson — always an opportunity to learn something about yourself or about life, and always something to take away and remember for the future.

Sometimes, as I have come to learn, the lesson stares us square in the face, other times it is more obscure and requires a bit more awareness and faith. But, if anything, I have come to learn that it is always there, waiting to be discovered and acknowledged.”

I still believe this to be true. I might add, however, that it is equally important to remember that life is a continual process of growth and discovery — and that the moment we think we have “figured it all out” or learned all our lessons is typically when life will remind us, with a gentle touch or forceful push, that much remains for us to learn.

My friend and I used to joke throughout our four years at Holy Cross that “one day everything will be ok.” It became our secret six-word mantra the two of us shared, helping us to cope with the endless pressure and stress of an intense academic environment, not to mention our sometimes challenging social dilemmas.

Little did we know how mistaken we were — not in our youthful optimistic attitude, but in our naive belief that once we graduated and settled into a job, once we “made it on our own,” all would be right with the world, our fear and anxiety dissipating into eternal contentment.

In fact, it was a little over a year ago while talking on the phone that we laughed at our “six letter phrase” and agreed that while some days can feel like that “aha” moment, there will always be days that leave one feeling troubled and ill at ease.

But, it’s not that I don’t think we can ever find peace, joy or contentment. On the contrary, I think that the realization and acceptance of life as a journey — as something that we can never fully understand, master or even control — may actually be the first important step toward finding those very things.

As easy as it is for us to convince ourselves that “once I get to this point…” or “if only I could…” or “maybe if I do this…” then “everything will be ok”, it is a dangerous, crippling mentality and perpetual cycle of thought that prevents us from fully realizing that happiness is not some outside force that comes to us, but is, rather, something we must create and choose for ourselves.

Our focus, then, should not be on trying to “figure it all out.” It should be on finding ways to be more accepting of the place we are currently in — and looking for lessons that we can call upon for guidance in the future.

There are certainly days (weeks, months, maybe even years) when everything just seems right, when things have fallen into place and are running seamlessly. But, not all days are going to be like that. Nor should we expect them to. And that’s ok.

And so, four years wiser, my message to this year’s graduates is this:

You will likely face, in the coming months and years, a series of circumstances, decisions, questions and doubts that will test your confidence in yourself and those around you.

You will likely be met with challenges you may have expected, and those that you could never have anticipated – and while you will be able to successfully navigate some on your own, others will likely require the guidance and perspective of a loving parent or friend.

You will undoubtedly have moments of success and celebration, moments of failure and discouragement and maybe moments of utter despair.

You may even come to question yourself, your relationship with others and your role in the world around you.

And you will probably spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what exactly you want to do, or should do with your life.

2015-05-26-1432673769-3051927-photo70.jpg

But, instead of looking at these as obstacles — as something you have to suffer through in order to be “ok” — relish them. Accept them. Embrace them. And…learn from them. Only then can we realize and accept that we are the arbiters of our life and our contentment, and that everything can be ok right now if we allow it to be.

As the Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke — recognized as “one of the most lyrically intense German-language poets” — so eloquently wrote:

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

Congratulations to all 2015 graduates! Live your questions.

Also check out these 5 life wisdom books for college graduates, along with 7 inspirational quotes for the 7 days of the week.

Newport Folk Festival Celebrates 50 Years Since Bob Dylan Went Electric

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — This year’s Newport Folk Festival plans to pay tribute to the moment when Bob Dylan made rock history by going electric 50 years ago.

The festival, noted for introducing performers who later became big stars, will have a secret lineup of musicians billed as ’65 Revisited. Festival producer Jay Sweet said on Tuesday that nearly a dozen contemporary musicians are included in an “all-star lineup,” but the audience won’t know who they are until they take the stage to close the festival with a “massive” set celebrating Dylan’s 1965 performance.

Dylan first appeared at Newport as a guest of Joan Baez in 1963. His three-song electric set two years later — including “Like a Rolling Stone” and “Maggie’s Farm” — is widely viewed as one of the most pivotal moments in rock ‘n’ roll history. It marked Dylan’s break with the folk movement and spurred others to go electric as well.

The Fender Stratocaster guitar Dylan played in the performance sold at auction in 2013 for nearly $ 1 million, the highest price paid for a guitar at auction.

Dylan is not playing at this year’s festival, although Sweet said he’s invited to play every year. If there’s any year Dylan wouldn’t come, it’s Sweet’s guess it would probably be this one.

“Having him back would be the least Newport way to celebrate it,” he said.

Dylan last played Newport in 2002.

“Trying to recreate that moment is a fool’s errand,” Sweet said. “We’re about the future, not about reliving the past.”

But Sweet said without that moment, when Dylan struck out a new path for music, the Newport Folk Festival probably would not be celebrating its 56th anniversary this year.

“Every once in a while, you have to acknowledge, that allowed us to be here,” he said.

The festival runs July 24-26. Tickets are sold out for the last two days, but a few are available for the first day. Other headliners include Roger Waters and The Decemberists.

The past few weeks have been busy, so an important career milestone almost slipped by with my having noticed: May 13th was my “Five Year Blogaversary.” On that date in 2010 my first blog appeared on The Huffington Post. Titled “Picasso’s Recession-Proof Harem,” it appeared on HuffPost’s New York section, as the Arts page hadn’t opened yet. HuffPost Arts — now HuffPost Arts & Culture — officially opened a month later, on June 15, 2010, under the direction of its amazing founding editor, artist Kimberly Brooks.

“Picasso’s Recession-Proof Harem” was the first of a total of 259 blogs (this one included) that I have posted over a five-year span. That means I have averaged just under a blog a week over time. When I started, I had absolutely no idea that I was capable of writing so much or so often. Blogging has been a huge surprise for me: It has been a life-transforming experience and a door-opener.

Ex-voto painting by Matthew Couper

Matthew Couper’s wonderful ex-voto painting, sent to me as a gift early in 2011, does a great job of capturing the spirit world of my newfound avocation. Seated productively at my computer, I’m connected by a grid of red circuitry to Mat Gleason — another early HuffPost Arts blogger — and also to an all-seeing eye, and to a painting by my mentor, the late Nathan Oliveira. A head by Jean-Michel Basquiat — another art world frenemy — rises over the floor tiles to my left, while my journalistic patron saintess, Arianna Huffington, raises a knowing eyebrow to my right. Christ, crucified for art, adds an additional touch of religiosity and devotion to the tableau.

At work in my office

Matthew’s painting captures some of the imaginative and psychological forces that surround my interest in writing. A photo of me at work in my real office shows some interesting correspondences. I do spend a great deal of time leaning over my laptop, and a work by Nathan Oliveira — one of his “Tauromaquia” monotypes — does hang in front of me as I write. A large model plane that I built and put too much work into to actually fly hangs over my head, a reminder of a hobby of the past. The energy that I used to put into making things seems to all go into writing these days. After recently re-organizing a bookshelf in my office to contain all of the catalogs and books I have contributed to over the past few years, all the effort suddenly seemed tangible.

Art catalogs and books

The following list contains some reflections, notes and comments from five years of blogging:

A few things I have learned:

Every word matters. You never know who is reading your blog. Every blog is important.

My favorite quote from an artist:

“The bravest thing in the world is to take a position without a pre-planned fall back.”

– Kyle Staver quoted in “A Brother Honored”

My favorite reader comment:

“Read it. Excellent. Loved the Mao.”

Steve Martin responding to my blog “I Don’t Deconstruct” on Twitter.

Blogging is different from other kinds of writing:

You wake up in the morning, drink your coffee, and blog about what you want to write about in the way that you want to.

Blogging is truly social:

I have never had so many friends. Oh, and a few frenemies too…

Something I need to do again:

The “Paintings and Palettes” and “Studio Visit” blogs were a lot of work, but a lot of fun too.

Click here for one…

A common misconception.

I have written predominantly about representational painters. For that reason, some people have come to think that I don’t care for other types of art. That isn’t true. I write about representational painting because there is simply so much good work out there that hasn’t gotten the attention that it deserves.

Humor is important:

You can say things with humor that you can’t say another other way. A list of my satires can be found at this link.

I’m often asked if I have a favorite artist:

Yes, it is the artist I am writing about at any given moment.

Artists need to have their stories told:

Interviewing artists has allowed me let artists tell their stories. An index of the 75 interviews I have conducted since 2010 can be found on my personal website.

http://www.johnseed.com/p/interviews.html

Some Acknowledgements:

I owe a great deal of thanks to Arianna Huffington, Kimberly Brooks, Kathleen Massara and Katherine Brooks (my editors). I owe even more to my wife Linda who has supported me, even when I have been writing when there is laundry that needs folding.

To my readers:

Thank you for reading. There is a lot left to write… more blogs are on the way.

Here Are All The Winners Of This Year’s Cannes Film Festival

CANNES, France (AP) — The 68th Cannes Film Festival was brought to a surprising close Sunday with Jacques Audiard’s Sri Lankan refugee drama taking the festival’s coveted top honor, the Palme d’Or.

The choice of “Dheepan,” as selected by a jury led by Joel and Ethan Coen, left some critics scratching their heads. While the dapper French filmmaker has drawn widespread acclaim for films such as “A Prophet” and “Rust and Bone,” some critics were disappointed by the thriller climax of Audiard’s film. “Dheepan” is about a trio of Sri Lankans who pretend to be a family in order to flee their war-torn country and are settled in a violent housing project outside Paris. “This isn’t a jury of film critics,” Joel Coen told reporters after the awards ceremony, alongside fellow jurors like Guillermo del Toro and Jake Gyllenhaal. “This is a jury of artists who are looking at the work.”

The win for “Dheepan” comes at a time when Europe is particularly attuned to the experience of immigrants, following the recent deaths of hundreds crossing the Mediterranean, seeking Italian shores. Jury members, though, said “Dheepan” was chosen for its overall strength as a film, rather than any topicality.

“We all thought it was a very beautiful movie,” said Ethan Coen, calling the decision “swift.” ”Everyone had some high level of excitement and enthusiasm for it.”

Audiard, springing to the podium at the Palais des Festivals, accepted the award with warm gratitude, bowing to the jury. He was joined by the makeshift parents of his film: Kalieaswari Srinivasan and Antonythasan Jesuthasan, who himself was Tamil Tiger child soldier before finding political asylum in France.

“To receive a prize from the Coen brothers is exceptional,” said Audiard, who added that only receiving one from the Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, the Belgian filmmaking siblings, could equal it.

The runner-up prize, the Grand Prix, went to “Son of Saul,” a grim Holocaust drama by first-time Hungarian director László Nemes. Some expected Nemes’ horrifying plunge into the life of an Auschwitz worker to take the top award, but it’s been 26 years since a debut film (Steven Soderbergh’s “Sex, Lies, and Videotape”) was given the Palme.

English actress Sienna Miller and Canadian actor Xavier Dolan, both jury members, sounded especially moved by “Son of Saul.” Miller called it “breathtaking” and an extraordinary accomplishment for a first-time filmmaker.

“Europe is still haunted by the destruction of the European Jews,” said Nemes. “That’s something that lives with us.”

Hou Hsiao-Hsien, the masterful 68-year-old Taiwanese filmmaker, won best director for his first feature in eight years: “The Assassin,” a lushly painterly martial arts drama.

The best actress prize was split but not the way some expected. It was given to both Rooney Mara, half of the romantic pair of Todd Haynes’ ’50s lesbian drama “Carol,” and Emmanuelle Bercot, the French star of the roller coaster marriage drama “My King.” (Bercot also directed the festival opener, “Standing Tall,” about a delinquent teenager.) Any split was presumed to go to Mara and her “Carol” co-star, Cate Blanchett.

Best actor was awarded to Vincent Lindon, the veteran French actor of Stéphane Brizé’s “The Measure of a Man.” He plays a man struggling to make a living after a long period of unemployment. The visibly moved Lindon won over some big-name competition, including Michael Caine, the star of Paolo Sorrentino’s unrewarded “Youth,” a wry, melancholy portrait of old age.

Lindon’s award added to a banner year at Cannes for France, which had five films out of the 19 in competition and went home with three awards.

Yorgos Lanthimos, a Greek filmmaker working in English for the first time, took the jury prize for his “The Lobster,” a deadpan dystopian comedy, starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, about a near-future where unmarried singles are turned into the animal of their choice.

“Chronic,” an understated drama about a home-care nurse (Tim Roth) for the terminally ill, took best screenplay for Mexican writer-director Michel Franco. Franco and Roth met three years ago when Roth, serving on a Cannes jury, helped award Franco the Un Certain Regard prize. “It’s a Cannes story,” said Franco.

The Camera d’Or, Cannes award for best first feature film, went to “La Tierra Y la Sombra.” César Augusto Acevedo’s debut, which played in the Critics Week section, is about an old farmer returning home to tend to his gravely ill son.

The Coens themselves took the Palme in 1991 for “Barton Fink.” The last two Cannes winners have been three-hour art-house epics: the glacial Turkish drama “Winter Sleep,” chosen last year by Jane Campion’s jury, and “Blue is the Warmest Color,” as picked by Steven Spielberg’s jury.

This year’s competition slate left some critics calling it a so-so year for Cannes. Some of the films that drew the biggest raves (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” Pixar’s “Inside Out”) played out of competition, while some in it (like Gus Van Sant’s “The Sea of Trees”) drew loud boos.

The festival was dominated by discussion about gender equality with many — from Blanchett to Jane Fonda — speaking about female opportunity in the movie business. “You hope it’s not just the year,” said Blanchett of the attention to women in film. “It’s not some sort of fashionable moment.” An honorary Palme d’Or was also given to French filmmaker Agnes Varda, the first woman to receive one and only the fourth director after Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood and Bernardo Bertolucci.

But the festival was overrun by an unlikely scandal when several women were turned away from the formal premiere of Todd Haynes’ “Carol” for wearing flat shoes, rather than high heels. The festival insisted it was the mistake of overzealous security guards and not part of Cannes’ notoriously strict dress code.

The festival, as it often is, was dominated by the unexpected, even on its last night. Nothing was more unforeseen — not even the Palme for “Dheepan” — than John C. Reilly, a co-star of “The Lobster” and another competition entry, “Tale of Tales,” took the stage to sing “Just a Gigolo” in a bright white suit.

The 8 Most Important Things We’ve Learned About Happiness In The Past 10 Years

We’re living in a golden age of happiness — the scientific study of happiness, at least.

The field of positive psychology has exploded in growth since its inception in 1998, dramatically increasing our understanding of human flourishing. We now know more than ever about what makes us happy, how we can spread happiness socially and geographically, and how happiness affects our physical and mental health.

But it’s just the beginning. In the next decade, we’re likely to see not only a greater understanding of positive emotions, but also the application of this research on a practical level to improve well-being on a global scale.

“Positive psychology has just scratched at the surface of the benefits of topics like meditation, gratitude and forgiveness,” Emma Seppala, Ph.D., a positive psychologist at Stanford and associate director of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, told The Huffington Post in an email. “The next decade of research will dive deep into these topics.”

Already, this burgeoning research offers valuable tools for each one of us to bring more joy into our own lives and the lives of others. In honor of HuffPost’s 10th anniversary, here are eight scientific findings about happiness from the past decade — and reasons why we’ll be happier in the future, too.

happiness

1. We get happier as we get older.
Although we tend to focus on the downsides of aging, a robust body of research suggests we’ve got a lot to look forward to as we get older. One survey conducted in 2013 found 23 and 69 to be life’s two happiest ages. Other data suggests that after happiness levels drop around mid-life, they tend to increase steadily into old age. One conducted by Duke University researchers in 2006 found that 70-year-olds tended to rate themselves as being happier than 30-year-olds did.

Why? Greater appreciations for life’s little triumphs and acceptance of life’s trials likely play a role, as well as lower stress levels.

“As we age, we have the opportunity to accept who we are, instead of focusing on who we feel we need to become,” psychoanalyst Ken Eisold wrote in Psychology Today. “We relax into being ourselves.”

“As we age… we relax into being ourselves.”

2. You can rewire your brain for happiness.
One of the most amazing things about the human brain is neuroplasticity — the brain’s capacity to rewire itself in response to new experiences.

We can actually wire our brains for happiness by focusing our attention on positive experiences and emotions, says neuropsychologist Rick Hanson, author of Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence. When you linger on a positive experience, it becomes encoded in your neural chemistry. Linger on many of these experiences, and the connections become strengthened over time and easier to retrieve.

“The longer the neurons fire, the more of them that fire, and the more intensely they fire, the more they’re going to wire that inner strength –- that happiness, gratitude, feeling confident, feeling successful, feeling loved and lovable,” Hanson told HuffPost in 2013.

3. Happy mind, healthy body.
More and more science is revealing the depth of our mind-body connection. We know now that cultivating a positive state of mind isn’t just good for your mental health — it can also keep your body healthy and protect you from disease.

Positive emotions have been shown to boost immune system functioning, positively alter gene expression, improve sleep quality and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, among other physical health benefits.

4. Social connection is key.
Human beings are social creatures, and the quality of our relationships is inextricably linked with our physical and mental well-being.

“Over a given period, people who have strong ties to family, friends, or coworkers have a 50 percent greater chance of outliving those with fewer social connections,” CNN medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta wrote last year. “If our relationships can have such an effect on our overall health, why don’t we prioritize spending time with the people around us as much as we do exercising and eating right?”

5. We can thrive in the face of life’s challenges.
The field of post-traumatic growth — which investigates how people not only survive but come to thrive in the wake of adversity — is one of the most exciting in all of psychology right now, says Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman, a psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania.

“I believe we need to move beyond positive emotions and incorporate trauma and anxiety, and investigate how these ‘negative’ emotions can lead to greater personal growth and well-being,” Kaufman told The Huffington Post in an email.

6. We’re happier when we’re helping others.
Being kind to others is a fast track to happiness. Volunteering makes people happier and boosts their longevity, according to a 2013 review of studies from the University of Exeter.

Helping others may also be an effective way to combat feelings of disconnection in our increasingly online lives.

“Too much use of technology can actually isolate us and make us lonelier,” Kaufman told The Huffington Post. “Also, generations appear to be getting more and more narcissistic and self-focused, and we know that’s not conducive to well-being. I think we will only be happier in the future if we can figure out a way to harness new technologies for the benefit of helping others.”

An added benefit? Kindness is contagious.

7. Lasting happiness is born of purpose.
“Happiness cannot be pursued; it must ensue,” Austrian psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl wrote in his 1946 manifesto Man’s Search for Meaning. “One must have a reason to ‘be happy.'”

In recent years, psychologists have demonstrated what Frankl long held to be true: Happiness doesn’t just come from chasing pleasure or positive experiences. As mounting research has demonstrated, sustainable happiness (and good health) comes from having a deep sense of purpose in life.

“One must have a reason to ‘be happy.'”

Studies have shown that a sense of purpose and meaning increases well-being and life satisfaction, boosts self-esteem and can even ward off depression.

8. Mindfulness is a gateway to happiness.
You don’t have to be a veteran yogi or a meditating monk to make yourself at least “10 percent happier,” as ABC anchor Dan Harris says, through a mindfulness practice. Studies have shown that meditation boosts positive feelings and psychological well-being, in addition to warding off stress, depression and anxiety.

“Research suggests that we are happiest in the present,” Seppala told HuffPost. “We will be happier in the future, if we learn to be present!”

21 Books From The Last 5 Years That Every Woman Should Read

books every woman

The one struggle of being a woman who reads is that you want to read everything.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by bestseller lists, because there just isn’t enough time in the day to read every hot new book. Between near-constant recommendations of amazing memoirs, new sequels and a terrifyingly long list of bookmarked Internet longreads, it can be stressful to choose what you should pick up next. Knowing which classics you’re missing from your reading repertoire is easy — it’s a little harder to remember what you’ve missed from three years ago.

We’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you (or maybe just increased your book stress… sorry) by pulling together a list of incredible titles from the past few years that you should add to the pile on your bedside table. These books by women are just a few of the incredible titles published recently — an exhaustive list would be hundreds of books longer. Those listed here are some of the most-discussed, thought-provoking and life-changing books from a diverse group of women writers. They make you rethink what being a feminist means, offer life advice to women of all ages, and reinforce your long-held belief that Tina and Amy should be your best friends and life coaches forever. The novels are some of the finest writing from woman authors. From lighthearted memoirs to harrowing thrillers, there’s a genre here for everyone.

Here are 21 books published in the past 5 years that all women should read:

A Goodbye After 20 Years of Directing Late Show With David Letterman

In the early evening of May 20 the words “used to be” will be grafted to the end of my name. Around 5:30, I will ask CBS Technical Director Tim Kennedy to “please fade to black.” Later I will remove the few remaining personal items from my sunny office with the four windows and set out to civilian life. When my feet touch 53rd street I will take my place among “ex” ball players, “former” Congressmen and “used to be” ship captains. I will be referred to as “the former director” of Late Show with David Letterman. Along with the name change, comes the surrender of an all-access pass to New York City.

Consider the sound of six hands clapping. In March of 2012, the cast of the Broadway show Once was booked on Late Show. On the Friday before the appearance, I walked eight blocks south to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater with a Late Show producer and my assistant. We sat in the darkened house as Cristin Milioti, Steve Kazee and the entire cast treated us to a very private performance of “Falling Slowly.” We were invited onstage where these big-time performers warmly introduced themselves and asked if “we would like to see it again?” “Ah, thank you. We’d love to see it again.”

Show business is filled with effusive strivers who realize their dream and can’t stop telling you about it. Sorry, but yes, there was a younger version of me from the north shore of Staten Island desperate for a one-way ferry ride. Manhattan scared me — it was loud, uncomfortable and uncaring, and, for reasons thousands of smarter people have tried to explain, absolutely magnetic. I had no choice. I needed to step off on the New York side and stay there.

One arctic January night, I rode the ferry again but this time I “owned” it. Late Show needed a new opening montage and I was given the resources and creative freedom to light up a boat named “The American Legion”. After crossing the harbor with the ferry’s captain, I grabbed a taxi to the West 30th street heliport where a pilot and camera crew harnessed me to the floor of a helicopter that was missing its doors. We did multiple passes across the bow of the ferry that was following a route and speed I requested. Later we buzzed the icons. I got a close look at the rivets dotting the roof of the Chrysler building and dangled my feet over the spiky crown of the Statue of Liberty. “Big deal” you say, “directors get to do that stuff all the time.” True, but on what scale and how often? I was in show business every day for 20 years or 1040 Sundays if Billy Crystal is counting. I had a blast. If things didn’t go well on Tuesday (they often didn’t), I had the rest of the week to get it right (I often didn’t.)

When my time at Late Show ends I will have directed over 3700 broadcasts, three openings and dozens of single camera shorts. I was treated to a private tour of the Empire State Building. I rode in blimps, police cars and the back seat of a taxi with Buzz Aldrin, who listened politely as I explained how to hold a pen in zero G. I had free run of Yankee Stadium and was part of a group that convinced George Steinbrenner to berate our Stage Manager, Biff Henderson. Mr. Steinbrenner turned out to be a great guy but the people around him seemed very nervous.

I put in hundreds of miles wandering the city streets with writers and camera crews in search of “found comedy”. On one of the many days when the funny refused to reveal itself, a call was put in to City Hall. Forty five minutes later, we were standing on the porch of Gracie Mansion as Rudy Giuliani lectured us about the waters of the Long Island Sound, the Harlem River and Upper New York Bay converging off his front yard to form the currents of Hell Gate. He reminded me of a know-it-all uncle.

If Joaquin Phoenix can romance an operating system, can I love a building? In 1992 I was invited to abandon my comfortable union gig in the art deco halls of NBC and travel a few blocks west to a smelly, broken down theater that saw its glory days in the 1960s. There was no guarantee of long-term employment, but there was the opportunity to help refurbish of one of the world’s most famous stages. Money blew down Broadway as the corporate might of CBS dragged a neglected ocean liner out of mothballs and made it seaworthy again. It was intoxicating. A dazzling broadcast facility was dropped into a swirl of fresh plaster, deep pile carpeting and velour seats. Everything was new; everything was possible.

I roamed the grand old building unchallenged, no one told me to leave (actually there was one time in 2003, long story). Instead stagehands and security people acknowledged me with snarky, absurd salutations that can only be traded among people who’ve shared changes of seasons and cycles of life. I’ve crawled through every accessible inch of The Ed Sullivan Theater. I’ve examined the pumping system that tames the stream running beneath the building and I’ve spied the plump rats who shared the stage with Letterman. I’ve climbed the sketchy iron ladder to the roof and stepped out a restaurant window onto the iconic marquee where Paul McCartney marked his return with a summertime street concert. I’ve pondered my good fortune in front of the René Bouché pencil drawing of Ed that hangs in the inner lobby and I’ve seen the looks of reverence from the many people I’ve taken through the place.

In October of 2002 Warren Zevon showed up for rehearsal; he was dying from mesothelioma. This was his last Late Show appearance and final public performance. He would be dead in less than a year.

Warren was a Late Show regular and covered for Paul Shaffer during the rare times Paul was unavailable. He was one of those guys you never saw coming. He didn’t enter a room — he appeared. On this day a rolling silence announced Warren’s arrival. He took in our frightened, sad faces for a few perfectly timed beats and said, “I think it’s the flu.” Later, Warren and Letterman had a compelling and surprisingly amusing conversation during which Warren shared that he may have “made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years.” With the time he had left, Warren told us he intended to “enjoy every sandwich.” He performed three songs, focusing every witness to a deep look at the abyss.

Each day, Late Show started with a blank page that demanded to be filled. There were plenty of smart ideas, but we often resorted to spectacle. We broke windows, blew up pumpkins and spilled thousands of marbles from seven floors up. We hosted presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents. (There’s that “former” word again.) We re-enacted the Civil War and marched Marines under our marquee and through the aisles of the theater. We watched Philippe Petit take a wire walk 14 stories above an airbag that the city demanded, but he assured me would do nothing to save his life.

And then there are the folks, the humans who kept the assembly line moving. Late Show is populated by smart, stylish people with wicked senses of humor and impossibly fast minds. They gorge on popular culture and carry generous supplies of intuition and insight. Somehow they soldier on through jealousy, rage, dysfunction, cancelled guests, evolving technology, relentless scrutiny, tardy rock stars, fierce competition, 4 am calls, failed comedy ideas and a very demanding boss. They are clever, resilient and, at their core, among the most decent people you could ever hope to meet.

And then there’s Letterman — someone who relentlessly drove himself and the rest of us to the outer envelope of effort and clear thinking. In a random close encounter you’re likely to be charmed — what a great guy, so well-informed and so interested in what I have to say.

I grew up around funny people. Sarcasm and irony was my native language, finesse was an alien concept. Humming just beneath the surface of banter and insults was a bond allowing us to endure life’s cruelties with silliness. Funny people are strong. They counter fear and the indignities of living by surfacing the ironic, the ridiculous and the unexplainable. If tragedy is never taken seriously, then nothing can be tragic, fear is eliminated. To be in the presence of funny people is effortless and exhilarating, to be around people trying to be funny requires you to pay attention — it’s work.

When Dave was still at NBC hosting his 12:30 show, there were lavish Christmas parties. He’d buy out the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink and staff and crew would eat, drink and skate together. It was magical. Imagine sliding around on that famous ice minus the crowds, while envious tourists studied us from the plaza above.

As the evening wore on, small support clusters gathered to strategize about the best moment to approach Dave. We all wanted a little face time to register gratitude and maybe say something clever. People agonized over when to make the move and what to say. It was like lining up to visit Santa Claus, except Santa was a moving target, easily irritated and there would be no sitting on his lap.

It didn’t feel right to bother him while he was skating; you weren’t going to interrupt him while he was eating and there was never an easy way to join a conversation he was having with someone else. I was new to this world and couldn’t reconcile the degree of angst hovering over the room. Smart people were struggling to measure the conditions of saying “thank you” to their boss at the company Christmas party. It seemed way too difficult but, like everyone else, I was thrilled to be included and desperately wanted to be invited to the next party and beyond.

As I silently raged against my diffidence and fear of celebrities, I was steadily reminded by more experienced partygoers that “you have to go up there.” Time was running short. When I spied a gap around his table, I jumped. It was like stepping off the wing of a shrieking airplane. Beyond the pressure of coming up with something smart to say was the added burden of being evaluated by a gaggle of eavesdroppers who would overhear my remarks and report to the rest of the party. There would be judgment.

Before I was frightened off by the intense, narrow eyes that screamed “Oh God, here’s another one,” I stuck out my arm and said “Well Dave, it’s time for the annual hand shake.” I was sure that lampooning the absurdity of it all was something he’d appreciate. Turns out I was very wrong. Professional funny people don’t like wise guys. My stab at neighborhood humor was met with soul-searing silence. “Thanks for everything,” I stammered as he reflexively gripped my hand. “No Jerry, thank you,” came the kind-of-loud reply. I slithered away reduced. I spent two agonizing hours trying to get it right and he dropped me with four words and a scowl. I wanted to stick my head in a bucket.

Spread over 25 years my Letterman encounters, occasionally direct sometimes by proxy, were dominated by similar miscues, garbled intentions and remorse. I never seemed to say the right thing, but the stakes got higher — I was the director, perfectly positioned to screw things up and I often did. Despite an earnest desire to please, I never left work thinking I got it right.

Among Dave’s many gifts is the uncanny ability to turn the simplest task into something unwieldy. Watch him dial a phone or attempt a tweet. He’s also someone who can stare down the barrel of a single camera and distill the most complex human frailties with sideways insights that are hysterical and ultimately reassuring. The maddening part is the impossibility of predicting which version you’re going to get.

Long before Paris Hilton, the obnoxious Housewives or the family Kardashian was Dave, antagonizing Bryant Gumbel with a bull horn or taunting General Electric’s upper management with a gift basket. Dave pioneered reality television. If he was happy, you knew it and there was no escaping the times he was pissed. Search the night he announced the birth of his son or the time someone accused him of being a “non-voting Republican.”

Brilliant writers showered him with scripts, concepts and set ups. Most pitches were rejected and the rare ones to make it through were drastically altered. Even the best ideas were a threat to his effort to spill his thoughts out in real time. The memorable nights were when he was on a rant or a roll and the vitriol or joy flowed fresh from his uniquely wired brain. While he filleted himself in pursuit of perfection, David Letterman harbored a deep disdain for anything suggesting rehearsal. The observations, the comedy, the biting conclusions had to be conjured in the moment. This was not a teleprompter guy, if it was being read, it wasn’t a conversation, and if it wasn’t a conversation you’re not a broadcaster.

Dave is painfully self-aware. He lives in a state of perpetual examination and is incredulous that others don’t make the same effort. If they did, the world wouldn’t be populated by so many fools. He is easily the fastest knife in any fight and lights, microphones, cameras and direction only interfered. He was impossible to please, and if you stumbled into doing something right, he was convinced it would lessen your next effort. Was it simply some noble, Midwestern work ethic? I may never know.

Dave possessed a fierce drive to honor his opportunity. He threw everything he had at the show and left nothing on the table. Defying an earlier generation of generic NBC executives, David Letterman did become the uncontested heir to Johnny Carson. He walks off with his dream fully realized. He also gave me and many others a shot at their own professional dreams. The entertainment business is deep with people who passed through Dave’s world and have gone on to considerable success.

Now it’s time to hand the keys to a new owner. One day you’re a big shot with fat budgets and vast resources and the next day you’re not. Like the high school we leave behind or the vacated summer rental, someone kind of like you will occupy the space that was once yours and create memories of their own.

When Warren Zevon was leaving the theater that early autumn evening the impossible silence returned. The stage was dim and the theater’s ghost light was in place. As Warren gingerly lowered himself into the backseat of a town car, Stagehand Kenny Sheehan attempted a goodbye — “We’ll see you around, Warren.” A weary grin came to Warren’s face as he reached for the door. “Yea, I’ll see you somewhere.”

Watch What Happens When This Young Couple Sees What They Will Look Like In 70 Years

SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue

By Sue Campbell

If you haven’t yet seen the viral video showing a couple in their 20s get transformed by makeup artists to look age 50, 70 and 90, take five minutes to watch it (below). The video will make you think about sterotypes of aging and also about what it means to grow old with a partner.

It centers on Kristie and Tavis, who are to be married in a month. They’ve agreed to this experiement and are eager to share it with their families. “My mom thinks this is the coolest thing ever,” Kristie says. “She said, ‘What a treat for us because we’ll probably be gone when you’re that age, so we’ll get to see what you would maybe look like.”

The makeup artists get to work, and when the couple hits 50, Tavis is delighted by Kristie’s looks. They expect, they say, that they’ll be living a sterotypical kind of life, raising teenagers and joining the PTA. At 70, they turn a bit emotional. “I can’t help but think about what the potential last 50 years would hold,” Tavis says. “To see her look like this makes me think of where we have gone, what would have happened in between.”

To see a young couple ponder time’s passing, believe the years will keep them together and accept one another’s aging faces with love reveals the commitment they feel. It’s sweet and tender to watch.

At 90, they weep. The pair instinctively grasps that there’s deep comfort to be found in long relationships. They talk about what their last words to each other would be. “I would want to make sure he knew how much I love him and how important he’s been to me,” Kristie says. “I’m a better person because of you,” Tavis says.

A month before their wedding, engaged couple Kristie Scherrer and Tavis Doucette participated in a fun and surprisingly emotional experiment. Using makeup and prosthetics, the pair was able to get a glimpse of what they’ll look like as they grow old together.

“I hope you look like this,” Tavis says. “You look fantastic.”

“To see her look like this makes me just think of where we have gone to be next to each other looking like this,” he says. “What would have happened in between.”

“There’s some strange, comforting feeling seeing him this way,” Kristie says.

A Cut Video employee told BuzzFeed that the makeup artists used the couple’s family photos as a guide to what they might look like at that stage in their life.

According to their wedding website, Kristie and Tavis tied the knot on Friday. The making of the video, filmed roughly a month before the wedding, couldn’t have come at a better time.

“Especially being about to get married and embarking on all that, I couldn’t be more sure that this is what I want,” Kristie says at the end of the video. And with that, our hearts have officially turned to mush.

How Two Newlyweds Paid Off $52K of Debt in Under Two Years

In our Money Mic series, we hand over the podium to people with controversial views about money. These are their views, not ours, but we welcome your responses.

Today, one man recounts the moment he realized that he and his wife were drowning in debt, and how digging themselves out transformed their finances, their marriage — and his calling in life.

Before tying the knot in 2008, my wife, Kim, and I never discussed money.

It wasn’t an intentional choice to be secretive — we just never prioritized sharing details about our income, spending habits, or debt when we were dating.

But I had financial skeletons in my closet. With $ 18,000 in student loans and another $ 18,000 from an auto loan, I brought a significant amount of debt into our marriage.

I guess I didn’t worry about fessing up to Kim because I wasn’t too concerned myself. I figured, with a little discipline, I’d get around to paying it off at some point.

What did alarm me, however, was an incident that happened shortly after our wedding.

In the course of one month, Kim charged $ 600 of new clothing and designer handbags to our joint credit card — a fact I discovered while looking over the statement one day.

I was truly shocked, and it got me thinking: Did we have a spending problem?

What I realized, after taking a closer look at our finances, is that it wasn’t just Kim who was threatening our financial wellbeing. In just a few months’ time, we’d run up a $ 7,000 balance on our credit cards, thanks to a combination of Kim’s shopping, my overspending on everyday expenses and our $ 1,400 honeymoon cruise.

When I combined that balance with my own debt and Kim’s outstanding $ 9,000 in student loans, I realized we were on the hook for $ 52,000 — plus another $ 350,000 for our mortgage.

RELATED: How I Paid $ 100,000 Off My Mortgage in Under 2 Years

At the time, Kim was just kicking off her career as a high school teacher, and I was selling flooring. Our combined annual income landed at just around $ 70,000 — and we had no savings to speak of.

Seeing the numbers in black and white was anxiety-inducing, to say the least. How had we mismanaged our money so badly? And, more importantly, what did this mean for our future?

Prior to tallying up our debt, we’d talked about traveling internationally, starting a family and, some day, retiring comfortably. There was so much we wanted out of life, but basic math showed us we’d never manage to make progress on our goals while carrying this $ 52,000 weight.

I knew it was time to get real — and Kim agreed. So we started hashing out a plan that would put us on the path to financial freedom.

Trimming, Selling and Communicating — Our Debt-Repayment Plan of Attack
Whether it’s money, business or any other area of expertise, I’ve always been a big believer in drawing upon others’ success.

So I set out to find inspiration from people who knew a thing or two about money management, devouring personal finance blogs and books for strategies on getting out of debt. We also enrolled in a 13-week personal finance class through our church, which focused on how to better manage money as a couple.

The flood of new information gave way to some powerful changes.

The first thing we did was write down all of our assets, debts, income and expenses on one sheet of paper to see the big picture — and immediately realized we needed to slash our expenses.

Next, I painstakingly reviewed every line item in our budget, and found a lot of opportunities to save. I negotiated our Internet bill to under $ 20 and canceled our cable package, freeing up another $ 70 a month. We also scaled back restaurant visits to just a few times a month and started clipping coupons.

Believe it or not, these measures put an extra $ 400 to $ 500 in our pockets each month that we could throw toward debt repayment.

And we didn’t stop there. We also took steps to bring more money in.

I started with my brand-new Nissan Altima, which I sold for $ 16,000 and replaced with a 12-year-old used car for $ 2,500. Sure, the passenger-side door didn’t open from the outside, but I was bettering our financial picture — and that made it worth it.

Selling large household odds and ends online — like our Nintendo Wii and a few of Kim’s designer purses — also became part of our routine. And Kim completed some professional development coursework that resulted in a $ 1,500 raise.

Any time extra money fell in our lap — whether through a pay boost, a hefty tax return, or an item sold online — we automatically earmarked it for debt repayment. Once the momentum was in full swing, we were putting anywhere from $ 1,000 to $ 5,000 a month toward our debt.

To stay on track, Kim and I had weekly money talks to review a comprehensive spreadsheet we’d made detailing our finances from month to month. Clicking from one tab to the next, we could literally see our debt gradually shrinking — which served as a powerful visual reminder of our progress.

These weekly money dates also allowed us to hash out problems — like disagreements over how much to spend on entertainment — and encouraged us when we were feeling down.

I remember a few months when we didn’t make as much progress because I hadn’t earned as much commission from work. But talking through such issues reenergized us to keep going, making our relationship even stronger.

Finally, after 18 months, we crossed over the finish line — and became debt-free.

RELATED: Real People Dish: The #1 Thing That Inspired Me to Get Out of Debt

The Debt-Free Life: 5 Years and Counting
About four and a half years have passed since Kim and I began the new, financially-free chapter of our lives.

After climbing out of the hole, we prioritized building up our emergency fund to $ 15,000, which was about five months’ worth of expenses — and started saving for a big international trip we’d dreamed about.

After socking away $ 300 a month for two years, we finally embarked on a two-week trip to Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia. The best part: The vacation was 100 percent paid in cash.

As simple as it sounds, that’s probably the biggest lesson I learned from our financial journey: You can’t spend more than you make. It’s an obvious rule of thumb, but it was something Kim and I needed to learn the hard way.

Speaking of income, a happy result of our experience is that I’m now generating two to three times more money than I was when we were swallowed in debt… as a financial planner.

It feels great to come full-circle, using my skills and passions in a way that generates income — and helps both us and others work toward financial security.

Today, Kim and I have about $ 20,000 set aside for retirement, on top of our $ 15,000 emergency fund. We also have another $ 5,000 designated for travel and gifts, so we aren’t blindsided by baby showers and birthdays.

What’s more, after significantly paying down the mortgage on our condo, we sold it toward the end of 2014. Between our equity and an extra $ 8,000 we’d saved on our own, we were able to put a 20 percent down payment on a larger home.

And we’re going to need that extra space — our first child is due at the end of this month.

Prepping for parenthood got me thinking about what it really means to be a good example. My parents, who are divorced, both individually filed for bankruptcy — so you could say I didn’t have the strongest money role models. But when it comes to raising my own children, teaching better money habits is a priority.

And knowing that I took control of my own finances, broke the debt cycle, and forged a new path for my family empowers me to do so.

The Vertigo Years

The Vertigo Years


Europe, early in the twentieth century: a world adrift, a pulsating era of creativity and contradictions. The hot topics of the day – terrorism and globalisation, immigration, consumerism, the lack of moral values and rivalling superpowers – could make one forget that it is a century ago that this era vanished in the trenches of the Somme, of Ypres, and of Passchendaele. Or did it? The closer one looks, the more this world seems like ours: feminism and quantum thedory, atonal music and democratisation, mass communication and commercial branding, genetics, state-sponsored genocide, colonialism, consumerism and racism, radioactivity and psychoanalysis are all terms first used during this period. This was a time radically unlike the Victorian era that preceded it, a time in which old certainties broke down and many people lost their bearings. At the heart of this vibrant Europe, was a contradiction that would cause its collapse: the new, modern world of mass production, urban life, technological warfare and a rapidly growing working class was still ruled by men – Kaiser Wilhelm, Tsar Nicolas II, and the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Francis Joseph among them – who thought in the chivalric and paternalistic categories of earlier generations, prefering the image of dashing cavalry officers to the prosaic slaughter of the machine gun, and national mythology to political cohesion and democracy. The eventual scope of the catastrophe often obscures the fact that the great cultural divide in Europe’s history lies before 1914. This book will bring to life the immediacy of the lives and issues of this fascinating and flawed period.

Faith: 20 Years Strong

2015-04-01-1427888188-1379415-201503311427816099920288IMG_6568thumb.JPG

When you look up the word ‘Incomparable’ it means “unable to be compared.’ It’s also the name of the newest album from Faith Evans. The R&B singer from New Jersey has a music career spanning 20 years. Faith was the first female artist to be signed to Bad Boy Entertainment in 1994 and her first studio album ‘Faith’ was released in 1995. Faith took to the stage to perform some of her greatest hits and songs from her new album ‘Incomparable’ that was released in November. On a Sunday night in March in New York City she was the headliner during the monthly showcase of R&B Spotlight that’s held at Sounds of Brazil or what is also know as SOBs. Before Faith took the stage, super fans of hers got to hear unsigned talented artist as well J. Drew of the famous Clark Sisters & Sheard family.

If you’ve never been to a Faith Evans show it mirrors every aspect of her life. The singer has been through a great deal of heartache, pain, and exciting time. That’s why I feel it’s very fitting to say that her performances are much of the same. Faith takes the listener on an emotional, rocky, yet fun journey. Without a doubt she brought the house with her energy and her legion of fans known as #Faithfuls. Personally, I was excited to be at the show but I was even more excited that I would be getting the opportunity to spend about five minutes with Faith to interview an amazing singer whose songs I have heard playing on the radio since I was 12 years old. I can recall hearing “Soon As I Get Home” blasting from some of my other sister’s rooms as I run through the house. So the opportunity to interview her was five minutes well spent. Tunnel Vision Marketing & Consulting is the reason I was able to knock out one of my interview goals.

I met Faith for our brief five-minute chat inside of her dressing room after the show. I wanted to know how she has remained such a force in the music industry for so long, how she’s maintained herself over the years and what people can expect from her new music.

KM: Faith, thank you so much for this opportunity. You definitely brought the house down tonight? How did it feel being up there in front of all those ride-or-die Faith fans?

Faith: Oh I had so much fun, I wish that I could have done a longer set but the band that I performed with I haven’t worked with them before but I threw in two extra songs and they were able to pick it up. It was just so much fun, it’s always good to come back home because the home city is always there to support.

KM: Let’s talk about the album ‘Incomparable’ for a moment. What’s different about this one than say some of your previous albums?

Faith: Well, first this is a concept album and details a lot of things that I was going through whether it be with my family or conversationally you know post divorce and getting back into dating. The album really captures a two year period of my life It was so great to bring it all together and make a story out of it. Also to me it’s my best album so far. Now I have others coming but it’s a really good album to me. All I really wanted was for people to say it’s a good album and I have been getting that.

KM: What makes Faith Evans strong?

Faith: First and foremost my family makes me strong. My mother and my grandmother made me strong. My children make me strong and the fact that I wake up at four in the morning to go work out makes me strong. But most of all God keeps me, makes me, made me, fulfills me, you know he is why I am strong.

KM: And you look amazing, let’s just go ahead and say that too!

Faith: Thank you, thank you so much.

It’s true Faith Evans has transformed her body but her soul remains true to form. Which brings me back to the new album ‘Incomparable’ and why it is appropriately titled during this time in her life. In her life she has seen her fair share of triumphant times and pain but the journey has been hers and no one could compare to handling it the way that she has. Faith pours her soul into her music and once she hits the stage the #Faithfuls feel it too. ‘Incomparable’ is available now everywhere music is sold. Give it a listen and let Faith take you on a musical journey.

Meet Your New Style Icon: Marilyn Monroe, Circa Her College Years

marilyn-monroe-coat-picture-1950

The show notes for Max Mara‘s fall 2015 collection taught me something I didn’t know: that Marilyn Monroe attended college classes (and loved reading, leaving behind a 400-book library when she died). The above snap of Marilyn is from a 1950 photo shoot in the backyard of a Hollywood agent, one of the years right before her career really took off, and, according to The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe by J. Randy Taraborrelli, a time period when she was taking literature classes at UCLA.

marilyn-monroe-suit-outfit-1950-personal-style-picture

The majority of photos we’ve all seen of Marilyn are either movie stills or promotional pics and they all play to her sex-bomb persona. There’s a whole other strata of her personal style though—less documented but worth paying attention to—where she’s off the clock and wearing classic basics that are less curve-hugging.

marilyn-monroe-sweatshirt-1953-picture

I dug through a lot of vintage snaps, and these were the most inspiring I saw. If you’re craving more, Life shared images from a shoot 24-year-old Marilyn did when she was still relatively unknown (so much so that the magazine declined to publish them). Her clothes, monogrammed shirt included, hinted at that bookish side, as did the photographer’s note that the images were taken when “we’d go out to Griffith Park and she’d read poetry.”

I’m a big fan of the way the star’s cerebral side has been reinterpreted for now. “Marilyn’s ‘me’ time menswear classics are reinvented…silhouettes are shrunken or maxi-sized,” the Max Mara notes read. “A vision which is brainy, sexy, and modern.” The show opened with Gigi Hadid, a modern-day bombshell of Marilyn caliber, pulling a camel coat around her. Joan Smalls followed in a chunky cardigan sweater that was inspired by one Marilyn wore in an iconic 1962 beach photo shoot, and Lindsey Wixson wore a camel set that turned the sweatshirt into something any sex kitten would covet.

Which Marilyn is more in line with your style: the sexy siren she’s classically known as or this more bookish, reserved version?

Couple Married 81 Years: ‘You’re Damn Right’ We’re Still In Love

After 81 years of marriage, Dale and Alice Rockey still haven’t lost their spark.

“You don’t see them together without holding hands,” their son Tom Rockey told Kansas City’s FOX 4 News.

On Saturday, the Rockeys were honored by the Worldwide Marriage Encounter, a Christian group based in San Bernardino, California, as part of the organization’s 2015 Longest Married Couple Project. The title is based on nominations, so this does not make the pair the indisputable longest-married couple in the country — just the longest-married among the 375 nominees.

The Rockeys — who tied the knot on December 29, 1933 — grew up just a couple blocks from each other in Hemingford, Nebraska. According to the Kansas City Star, their romance began one afternoon before a double date they had planned — but Alice was supposed to be going with another guy and Dale with another girl.

When the other girl was still at work, Dale Rockey pulled up in front of Alice’s house. She was sitting on the front porch.

“He came by and says, ‘You want to go for a ride?’” recalled Alice Rockey. “So we went for a ride, and that was our first date.”

The pair went on to have five sons, 15 grandkids, 28 great-grandkids and six great-great grandchildren.

When asked on Saturday, “Do you still love each other after all this time?”, Dale replied with a laugh, “You’re damn right!”

For more on their love story, watch the video above or head over to the Kansas City Star.

DeMarcus Cousins Waited Exactly 5 Years To Send Out This Perfectly Timed Tweet

On Jan. 30, 2010, the University of Kentucky basketball team and its young star Demarcus Cousins played Vanderbilt. During the game, sports writer Clay Travis, a Vanderbilt Law School graduate (who once ate nothing but pudding for at least 27 days), tweeted this about then-controversial Cousins:

A Lot Of People Haven’t Seen The Year’s Best Picture Nominees

Amid controversy with this year’s list of Oscar nominees, there’s this sobering statistic: The eight movies nominated for Best Picture are the lowest-grossing group since the Academy Awards expanded from five nominees in 2009. As Box Office Mojo notes, the eight movies have earned a combined $ 203.1 million, more than $ 300 million less than the previous low in 2011.

Part of that has to do with the number of nominees: No fewer than nine movies have been in the Best Picture race since the 2009 ceremony. (This year, there were eight.) Part of that has to do with the snubs: “Gone Girl” ($ 167 million in North America), “Unbroken” ($ 103 million in North America), “Into the Woods” ($ 107 million in North America) and “Interstellar” ($ 185 million in North America) all failed to secure nominations.

As it stands now, Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is the most financially successful Best Picture nominee with $ 59 million in North American ticket sales. “The Imitation Game” ($ 42 million) follows close behind. Films like “Selma,” “The Imitation Game” and “American Sniper” should also make up big ground between now and Feb. 22, when the Oscars are handed out. (“American Sniper” and “The Imitation Game” could both crack $ 100 million prior to the ceremony, assuming each film continues to perform through nationwide expansion.) But for an Academy that originally expanded its roster of Best Picture nominees to be more inclusive, this year feels anything but: It’s an indie-heavy lineup that all but ignored major studio successes, and could prove deadly to the Oscars’ television ratings next month.

The Last Five Years Official Trailer #1 (2015) – Anna Kendrick Movie HD

THE LAST FIVE YEARS by Tony award winning composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young, talented up and coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an intercutting time line device; all of Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their love affair while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage. Its beautiful pop music score portrays an honest, heartbreaking, often funny, exploration of love and it’s consequences on individual identity.

The 3 Best Apps for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

2015-01-05-YogaWoman3328695.jpg

Good news/bad news here.

First the good news: You want to be a better person.

Research out of the University of Scranton (yes, that Scranton) indicates that nearly half of all Americans make New Year’s resolutions aimed at improving their lives, and at least half of our resolutions are aimed at leading physically or mentally healthier lives. Yeah! Go you!

Now for the bad news: Only 8 percent of people who make these resolutions will actually keep them.

If you are a chronic resolutioner who has trouble following through, you may be wondering why you are so determined to be better but so bad at it. It’s actually not your fault. It has to do with the way your brain is wired. Your brain is better suited for short-term thinking than long-term thinking. Your brain, which is the product of hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, has one major job: to keep you (and your offspring) alive. Thankfully, your brain takes that job very seriously. That’s why when you are faced with the choice of eating a slice of chocolate cake or kale, the more primitive parts of your brain are directing you towards the cake, which has more calories — even if your higher brain centers know that in the long-term, the kale is better for you. It is just following a pattern of logic from long, long ago. This is why it is so hard to follow through on long-term goals like diet, exercise or writing that novel that you’ve been putting off.

The best news is that even if you were born with a human brain — and I suspect you were — and you have difficulty keeping your resolutions — and I suspect you do — there is wonderful technology that is here to help you on your path. Now that there is an app for everything, there are apps to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions. As a clinical psychologist, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my patients’ lives, and technology can be a major source of support for those who are trying to stay mentally or physically healthy — both of which, by the way, go hand in hand.

So, without further ado, here are my choices for the three best apps* that truly work to help you keep your resolutions to live a physically or mentally healthier life this year:

2015-01-05-ScreenShot20150104at8.38.05PM.png

1. Lose Weight with Rise

Rise is consistently one of the highest rated apps in the iTunes App store for one reason and one reason only: It works. It is a brilliant use of mobile technology that pairs people who are looking to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle with a personal nutritionist. One of my patients tried this app late in the fall, and it has helped her make better choices and lose weight. If you are looking to slim down or to make better food choices Rise is the way to go.

2015-01-05-ScreenShot20150103at10.32.07PM.png

2. Quit Smoking with My Quit Coach

2015-01-05-ScreenShot20150104at9.31.45PM.png

One of the top resolutions that people make every year is to quit smoking. Once again, this can be a challenge because even if you think you want to quit, the pleasure centers deep in your brain may have another idea. Enter My Quit Coach. This app uses a behavior modification approach to help keep you motivated to quit by tracking your cravings and progress. A solid app for those who want to kick the habit.

3. Meditate Better with Buddhify

For those of you who are unsure of the value of meditation, the results are in, and they are strong. There are a plethora of apps to help you meditate. What I like about Buddihfy is that the app has 80 different types of meditations depending on your mood and situation. The meditations are useful and spot on. Plus, I think that it is well designed and beautiful, which doesn’t hurt.

2015-01-05-ScreenShot20150103at10.38.19PM.png

If you make specific goals and use these apps, I can tell you that you will either follow through on your resolutions you will go much further than you have in the past. And if you fail, just remember, there’s always next year…

Also, if you are looking for additional motivation to achieve your goals, I am offering the first chapter of my book for free for the month of January to help you get started on your New Year’s resolutions.

2014-10-06-130219BHMFormalPicForPublicity.jpgDr. Ben Michaelis is a clinical psychologist in full-time private practice in Manhattan. Dr. Michaelis writes and speaks regularly about mental health, creativity, spirituality and motivation. He is the author of numerous popular and scholarly articles and is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post.

Dr. Michaelis is the author of Your Next Big Thing: 10 Small Steps to Get Moving and Get Happy.

*I have not been paid to endorse any of these apps. Each of these are apps that I have personally used or have seen good results with through my close friends or patients.

8 New Year’s Wedding Resolutions

Happy New Year to brides around the world! Now that it’s 2015, it’s time to make your New Year’s wedding resolutions. This is something that needs to be taken seriously… or, at least, as seriously as you can get in an article on a bridal website.

Please raise your right hand (you’ll just have to scroll down with your left hand) and repeat these eight resolutions:

  • *I vow to make my wedding personal. It’s your wedding! Make it reflect your personality and who you and your fiancé are as people. Trends are wonderful and can provide inspiration but you don’t want to look back on your wedding in ten years and laugh about some of the decisions you made.
  • *Do burlap and mason jars only if you want them. Burlap and mason jars have become a default decorative theme for wedding receptions in the past few years in our area, Eastern North Carolina. If that’s you, go full steam ahead. It’s a fantastic look. If that isn’t you, don’t do it! See: Tip 1, make your wedding personal.
  • *Don’t cave to expectations. Your mom wants you to do only posed photos, your sister wants you to have 15 bridesmaids and your maid of honor wants you to wear a pink dress. Don’t be afraid to say no! After all, it’s your wedding!
  • *Stand up to your mother-in-law. Demand respect! In a nice, polite way of course. If she doesn’t understand this whole wedding thing and just wants you to get married at the courthouse, respectfully disagree… and then uninvite her to the wedding. (Just kidding on that last part.)
  • *Compromise. OK, so sometimes you can’t make the noble stand while keeping peace in the family. It’s one thing to tell you not to cave and to stand up to your mother-in-law but it’s another thing to do it. If your mother is really adamant about a couple items, try to find a way to fit one of them in a way that doesn’t ruin your grand vision.
  • *Put down Pinterest one month before wedding day. Seriously, drop the phone and slowly back away from it. (I think they probably have a medication for Bridal Pinterest Withdrawal Syndrome at this point.) We say this in jest but we do mean it. You’ll drive yourself, and your wedding planner, crazy if you keep hatching ideas right up until wedding day. You can’t possibly do everything you see on Pinterest. Be realistic. Speaking of that…
  • *Be realistic. In addition to the Pinterest stuff mentioned above, budgets need to be maintained. You can’t hire the best pros in North Carolina and feed 300 guests on a budget of3,000. (Ramen noodles for everybody!) Eventually everybody has to put aside something from their dream wedding because they can’t afford it or because they don’t have time to accomplish it. You might also need to make changes. Raise your budget. Lower the guest count. Eliminate the Cinderella ice glass slippers with sorbet.
  • *Hire pros and do it right. We hear horror stories from brides who had their cousin photograph their wedding or their uncle as the iPod DJ. We also see a lot of these horror shows first hand. They’re not pretty. The reason that the best wedding professionals charge a lot of money is because they’re really good at what they do. They’ll make your life easier and your wedding better.

You may now lower your right hand. Now that you’ve resolved to follow these eight wedding-related items, get to work! Go plan that wedding! (Or, better yet, hire a wedding planner to do it for you.)

Princess Mary Had the Dreamiest New Year’s Outfit, Ever

New Year’s Day isn’t a time for slouchy home clothes if you’re a royal, as evidenced by Denmark’s Princess Mary who picked a beyond-regal look for a meal at Amalienborg Palace. While I was in a plaid button-down and sweater at a buffet with my in-laws (true story), she was wearing a belted white gown complete with a dramatic tiara and velvet cape. It’s divine.

princess-mary-white-dress-new-years-2015

It’s the little things that keep the dress so perfect—the fabric and wrapped overlay make it look like it’s floating around her, and the bracelet-length sleeves show a flash of wrist, keeping the overall look light. And not to sound dramatic, but I adore it with royals wear traditional, from-the-safe family jewels. I was all about it the time Kate Middleton rocked a Zara statement necklace (remember?), but there’s something to be said for priceless pieces and the chains and badges that, I swear, look like they’re straight out of a BBC period drama.

How was your New Year’s? What did you wear?

I Hereby Resolve: No More New Year’s Resolutions!

2014-12-30-20141230_160739.jpg

Have you created your list of New Year’s resolutions yet? I haven’t, and I won’t. I’ve never been one to wait once a year to decide to change something. Throughout the year, I decide to change my behaviors or life situation when I feel the time is right. I feel like waiting for Jan. 1 is a bit manufactured and not very authentic. I may be a bit opinionated.

But for me, I like the process of things. I like the rituals and traditions of things. So a few years ago, I created new daily rituals for my family. When the children and I sit down for dinner, instead of simply saying grace, we each reflect on our days with specific reflections.

We each identify:
– One thing we’re grateful for that day
– One thing we’ve failed at that day
– One kind deed of that day
– How we’re feeling
– The best part of the day
– The worst part of the day

Why am I such a task-master and force my poor children to delay satisfying their hunger? Because I think these reflections remind us of several things. It’s important to remember there’s something to be grateful for in every situation. I don’t want my kids to forget this, or to take things for granted. I’d like to hope I’m helping them with this practice of gratitudes and mindfulness.

I think it’s important to also note what our failures are. This reminder forces us to remember what we didn’t do well, and the discussion turns into how we can improve in the future. I find value in processing what didn’t go as planned or intended, or what we just simply decided not to put our best effort into. I find value in identifying our weaknesses or flaws or mistakes. Not to ruminate on them, but to really examine them and decide what we’re going to do with them — accept them or improve them, and how.

A core value in my life is kindness. I believe firmly that we can’t have too much kindness in this world, and that in fact, we don’t have enough of it. I believe we are each responsible for adding to this kindness deficit. I believe no act of kindness can be too small, or too large. This daily reminder is self-explanatory. And if the kids cannot identify an act of kindness by dinnertime, there’s still time to work on that.

Feelings. I also firmly believe we need to be able to identify our feelings and use our words to cope with them. Feeling angry is different than disappointed. Feeling anxious is different than feeling scared. How we cope with each of those is very different, so it’s important to really know our feelings. I also like this one because our feelings change throughout the day. My kids need to learn that nothing lasts forever–good or bad. If they had a craptastic day, they can still feel very happy at dinnertime. If they had a great day, it can all go to hell in a heartbeat. There’s value in accepting things wax and wane, there’s value in learning how to be flexible, there’s value in accepting things.

I think reflecting on your day to determine what the best part and worst part of the day helps not only start conversations to share our days, but it promotes mindfulness and gratitude and perspective. Identifying the worst part of the day alongside the best helps to combat catastrophizing or generalizing into a negative world view. Perspective is everything. It’s important to remember each day contains both wonderful and horrible things.

I find these mindful reflections help with the overall and lifelong process of improvement. Reciting daily gratitudes teaches us how to be mindful of gratitudes in every moment big and small. Identifying our failures reminds us of our messy selves and who we want to be, and how to be that person. Remembering our acts of kindness every day reminds us simply to be kind. Recognizing our feelings keeps us in touch with ourselves. Perspective and remembering the good and bad in life helps us stay grounded.

This is our grace as we thank the world and count our blessings. These are our rituals. Our traditions. These help center us. Grounds us. Keeps us in the moment. I’ve found these reflections are in fact like resolutions, but they’re daily and necessary so that we can consider a different tomorrow. It is in these daily moments and reflections that we forge our lives, and the direction of where we go.

I’m learning to act like the person I want to be. I’d like to think these daily reflections and rituals help us to get to who we want to be. Who needs once-a-year New Year’s resolutions when we have an opportunity every day to reflect and be who we want to be? Not me. Now please pass the peas.
