Josie Natori Receives Honorary Degree From Manhattanville College, Tells Graduates to Embrace Change

AFTER SCHOOL WITH JOSIE: As the keynote speaker at this year’s undergraduate commencement at her alma mater Manhattanville College, Josie Natori was in for a few surprises.
Saturday’s stormy weather in New York caused the commencement to be moved indoors to the campus’ chapel where Natori had graduated 50 years ago. That morning-of change of plans was something she only learned about upon her arrival and the new location made the occasion even more memorable. “For me, selfishly, it was very nostalgic,” she said Monday.
Another surprise was the honorary degree that Manhattanville bestowed on the founder and chief executive officer of The Natori Company. “Of course, I burst into tears,” she said. Her former dean Elizabeth McCormack, who became president of the school in 1966, was in the crowd, as were Natori’s husband Ken and her son Kenneth. In her remarks, the designer said, “Change is the only constant — and right now, it happens in the blink of an eye. Embrace change or be left behind.”
Some of her other guideposts included:

You must love what you do. Because, if you don’t love it, you’re not going to succeed. 
Be open to all possibilities and listen to your inner feelings.
Even in the darkest moments, something

Men Embrace the Mustache — Again

The mustache is back and it was all over the runways for spring.
“We still see a lot of beards, but when someone decides to get rid of it for some reason, they want to leave the mustache and see how it looks,” said Martial Vivot, a men’s hairstylist who owns Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes in New York.
Facial hair has become so prevalent amongst Vivot’s clients — his roster runs the gamut from c-suite executives to celebrities — that earlier this year he introduced a line of tools made specifically for it, with one brush dedicated to mustaches.
Luckily, today’s mustache is a far cry from the overgrown styles of yesteryear. “It’s a cleaner line [now] — the difference is in the details,” Vivot said. “In the Seventies, the mustache was fuller and below the [lip line], almost falling on the lips.”
Vivot says the trend knows no age limit — he’s seen everyone from twentysomething hipsters to “preppy gentlemen” ask for a mustache.
“There’s something very masculine about facial hair — if you look back a century ago, a mustache was a way to elevate your [look] and assert yourself,” Vivot said. “It can reinforce a look you’re going after — we can fine-tune it to

Author Inspires Other Moms To Embrace Their Bodies’ ‘Wobbles, Lumps And Bumps’

A British author, blogger and actress has encouraged other moms to love their “perfectly imperfect” bodies in an empowering Instagram post.

Giovanna Fletcher, whose books include Billy and Me and Happy Mum, Happy Baby: My Adventures In Motherhood, shared a photo on Instagram that shows her enjoying a day at the beach with her two sons, Buzz and Buddy, whom she has with McFly band member Tom Fletcher. In the caption, she wrote that she had recently seen many posts about postpartum bodies. She then gave a touching explanation about how she feels about her body after giving birth to her sons. 

”At times it does bother me how much my body has changed, but I know I don’t ever want it to stop me having fun with the boys,” she wrote. “They aren’t going to look back and think, ‘Gosh, Mum had terrible cellulite, stretch marks and wobbled a lot,’ but they would notice if I sat out of games and didn’t make the most of my time with them.”

Fletcher emphasized how much she appreciates her body because it gave her the “two most important things” in her life, inspiring other moms to embrace their flaws. 

“So thank you to you in all your wobbles, lumps and bumps,” she wrote. “To me, you are perfectly imperfect.”

In February, Fletcher stopped by AOL Build UK for an interview and spoke openly about her postpartum body. During the chat, she said that a short time after she had given birth, a woman who asked for a photo with Fletcher’s husband turned to her and said, “Oh, look. Mommy’s still got a tummy.”

Watch Fletcher’s AOL Build interview below.

Fletcher said that a few days later, the incident came to mind again.

“A few days after that I had a shower, and I stood in my dressing room ― leaky boobs, stretch marks, wobbly belly,” she said. “And I just thought, ‘How do I feel about this … my body has changed, it’s not like it was when I was 18, no surprise.’”

The author soon realized the strength of her body, especially after going through a miscarriage. She then offered the audience an important message on how society views people’s bodies.

“We scrutinize and we put it down all the time,” she said. “We’re always told, ‘She’s got cellulite, she’s too fat, she’s too thin.’ Who actually cares?”

How to Embrace the Gift of Criticism

2017-02-14-1487094125-2445609-dontloseyourfire.jpg

This past October, I received the news from my literary agent that the novel I’d been laboring over and believed was finished, needed more work before she could take it out to market.

It was hard enough to accept this judgment, let alone share my disappointment with anyone–particularly my readers, in spite of the fact they’ve always remained remarkably loyal. Perhaps I was simply embarrassed to admit it. After all, I had made a few declarations that the manuscript was complete, and that I was on my way to finding a publisher.

The process of writing this book had already been somewhat painstaking, beginning back in October of 2015, when–after two years of writing–I received the advice of an established writer and editor: pitch the first 350 pages and begin again. After much contemplation, I decided to follow her suggestion.

That brings me to October 2016, a year later, when I found myself with 450 brand-new pages of completed manuscript. I sent it on to my agent, and this time she was the one to tell me that I had once again failed to reach my goal, although in an entirely different way this time around.

Initially, I couldn’t hear or process her evaluation: she felt that the novel should not be abandoned–but instead further revised. Significantly. Even though I had polished every page until my brain ached, I nevertheless needed to accept that I still had a lot of work to do. I trust my agent and value her experience, so I listened to all she had to say and resolved I would try to push myself through one last draft. This acquiescence, however, came with a steep emotional price tag.

THE NECESSARY EVIL OF CRITIQUE

Depression saturated the following days. One that was dark and deep, though I carried on with my life anyway. But, on a morning not so long afterward, as I brushed my teeth, the novel’s protagonist began to whisper in my ear. From her came a new idea. And then another. By the time five o’clock rolled around, I had scribbled down forty-one revisions I planned to make. And now, some four months after I’d submitted the manuscript to my agent originally, I am happy to say I’ve almost finished those numerous and significant changes. With great satisfaction, I can see how much I’ve improved and transformed the novel. I have to admit that, in so many ways, she was right.

I suppose the point in exposing my failures and regenerations in this writing process is to share with you the value of accepting criticism, enduring the agony of starting over, and learning to revise and adapt to changes in our plans–be they large or small–in order to achieve our dreams. Sometimes we have to let go of old ideas in order to reveal a new direction. In a novel, beginnings and endings change, as do titles, characters, points of view, scenes, and plot lines. The only constant is in knowing what you want to say–rather than knowing how you want to say it.

Going back to the starting gate in order to get to the finish line can be a harsh reality that requires both perseverance and fortitude–two qualities every writer must possess in abundance.

YOU ARE ALL THAT YOU NEED TO SUCCEED

My mother, the late poet, Anne Sexton, wore a medallion around her neck–which I inherited and still wear–that is inscribed with the Latin phrase: “Illegitimi Non Carborundum.” This means, in rough English (if you will excuse the expletive): “Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down.” I reminded myself of that sentiment as I soldiered on with countless revisions and rewrites. While no specific person was “grinding me down” back in October, it did feel, at the time, as if life itself was trying to squash my desire to see this through.

But now, sitting here at my computer in February, I no longer feel overwhelmed with self-doubt and defeat. Once again, I have regained a firm grasp of where my novel is going and how I’m going to get it to the finish line. And this time I’m certain that no one is going to get in my way. Not even myself.

Of course, there are no guarantees in the publishing industry. My agent may still feel uncertain about the novel despite all the hard work I’ve put into it since her last critique. Or, perhaps her response will be the opposite, and she’ll now see it as a blockbuster destined for the best-seller lists. But who’s to say my publisher will agree. The difficult work of four years could be stashed in a banker’s box, consigned to my storage shed, lined up side by side with the discarded drafts of other work and years of old tax returns. This is the risk I accept as one who makes her living as a writer.

Many of us go through similar experiences: a chef dumps a batch of curdled hollandaise sauce, and begins to whip up a new one; a surfer wipes out, and has to paddle in a hurry to catch the next wave; brothers and sisters, or parents and children, sit down together to work out a disagreement and strengthen their emotional bond.

The ability to listen to criticism, and to begin again, is a gift. And it can spark one of life’s most important challenges. If such insights should come to you–be open and take them to heart. It is absolutely possible to improve on a part of your life that is closest to your soul, be it in an intimate relationship or in the work-a-day world, so long as you allow it. Give starting over a chance, and discover the rewards you can reap.

Zero Stress Transitions: Stop Overwhelm, Build Your Self-Confidence & Embrace the Defining Moments of Your Life! (Zero Stress Coaching Series) (Unabridged)

Investors are all too often lured by the prospect of instant millions and fall prey to the many fads of Wall Street. The myriad approaches they adopt offer little or no real prospect for long-term success and invariably run the risk of considerable economic loss they resemble speculation or outright gambling, not a coherent investment program. But value investing – the strategy of investing in securities trading at an appreciable discount from underlying value – has a long history of delivering excellent investment results with limited marriage, divorce, a death in the family, a new job, retirement, pregnancy, a new home, kids in college, aging parents, sudden financial change, serious health conditions, or a new relationship. Transitions are the times in our life when we will make the worst mistakes in our life or create the best possible improvements to it.

How do we stack the deck in our favor?

The staggering pace of our modern world with its global workforce and markets generates a constant background of instability that forces us to go through many, many more transitions than our parents or their parents ever experienced.

This audiobook can help you learn the 3 things you need to know to make your next transition a defining moment that you can easily navigate with much less stress and much more personal power. The first of these three is to develop a very specific kind of self-confidence that uses your intuition as a trusted guide. The second is a quick and easy way to develop a healthy self-image and last, but certainly not least, is a better plan to handle overwhelm.

Enjoy the Kindle or audiobook version of Zero Stress Transitions today and learn how easy it is to reduce stress, increase your self-confidence and handle your overwhelm even in the midst of a major life transition!

Want a Lasting Relationship? Embrace This One Agreement

The other night I had dinner with a friend and she asked me about the agreements my husband and I had made when we decided our relationship would be different from anything either of us had ever had before.

Listening to her question, I was suddenly silent but then I remembered.

It was shortly after he and I had confessed our love to one another and were discussing our future.

“If we’re going to be together it has to be totally different from anything we’ve ever had before,” I’d offered. “So many relationships end up being about power or control and I don’t want that anymore.”

He’d agreed and added, “Most relationships are based on conditional love, too. The ‘you only love me because.’ Those end up being about tearing each other down.”

“Can’t there be another way? Another kind of relationship that lifts both people up?”

“Yeah,” he replied, “but it has to be about God first and about honoring the God within each other.”

Instantly I knew he was right. “That’s it!”

So what exactly is that, honoring the God within each other?

A simple way to think about it is the Hindi greeting, Namaste, commonly used across India but also often spoken amongst yoga practitioners. Translated it means the divinity in me recognizes the divinity in you.

Honoring the God in one another is about appealing to the higher self in all of us, the one yearning to be seen, heard and acknowledged. It’s about me rising into this space within myself and then seeing it in my partner and speaking to this aspect of him or her.

This kind of commitment is a relationship based on mutual love and respect.

It’s wanting your partner to live her passion, and encouraging her to take leaps and risks when they feed her and move her toward fulfilling her dreams and happiness. It’s giving your partner space to grow and evolve even if it means they leave you or aren’t always there for you.

This actually recently played out in my intimate relationship.

In 2004, my husband and I started a business together. After working side by side for nearly a decade, I was ready to move on. I knew it was time for me to shift careers yet I felt bad about leaving him to run the business on his own.

He could have easily fed that guilty place in me and said things to trigger it. Then I would have stayed because I love him and because I felt obligated since we’d started the business together.

Instead, he encouraged me to leave.

He was excited about what I was doing and the new direction my life was taking. It meant his life got harder initially, because it took time to fill the void I left. But he never wavered in his support of my new venture.

Now, he’s happier than ever and so am I. My shift allowed him to step more fully into roles that he had shied away from too.

He chose to remember our agreement of honoring the higher self in each of us, the God. He gave me both the room and the encouragement to follow my new path.

Change isn’t always easy, especially in our intimate relationships. It causes us to shift too as we make room for the other person to unfold. Yet when we choose to honor each other and celebrate who we are, not only is it more fulfilling but energizing too.

Positive change brings new opportunities and enthusiasm, which can be contagious and inspiring. We all know how good it feels when we’re in our flow. We are more alive, more present and more connected. Isn’t that what we all want for ourselves and for our loved ones?

Yet Another Reason Advertisers Should Embrace Body Diversity

Academic studies can be fascinating… and totally confusing. So we decided to strip away all of the scientific jargon and break them down for you.

The Background
When it comes to women’s bodies, academics have identified a “tyranny of slenderness” in contemporary culture. This “tyranny” is perpetuated through the ultra-thin models almost exclusively featured in ads. But while advertisers have defaulted to the thin ideal, research has yet to prove conclusively that this tactic actually sells more stuff. (Research has been able to prove that looking at all of those unattainable bodies reinforces the thin ideal and makes women feel bad, so there’s that.)

The Setup
In a recently published study, researchers from Baylor University wanted to see if the “thin sells” maxim made sense, so they surveyed 239 women ages 16 to roughly 65 to find out how much each woman internalized the thin ideal. Then, they randomly divided the women into three groups to see if they would buy handbags based off of particular advertisements. One group was shown five ads for handbags with “skinny” models and another group was shown five handbag ads featuring “average size” models (these were the “skinny” models Photoshopped to look a bit heavier). The last group was shown ads with no models, just handbags. The researchers also collected their basic demographic information, as well as each woman’s body mass index.

The Findings
Of the 239 women in the sample, only 30 percent were what the researchers called “high internalizers” who fully subscribed to the thin ideal. The other 70 percent were either ambivalent (45 percent) or “low internalizers” who rejected the thin ideal (25 percent). Ads with ultra-thin models only convinced women who were “high internalizers” to buy the handbags; otherwise model body size had no direct impact on the effectiveness of an ad — the “average size” models worked just as well as the “skinny” models. Fun facts about those “high internalizers”: These women were younger, consumed more media, earned more money and were generally unhappier with their bodies than the other women in the study.

The Takeaway
If, as this study would have you believe, advertisers pander to the insecurities of a small percentage of women, then also they’re likely alienating 70 percent of female consumers. It seems that a wider range of bodies are just as effective, if not more, at selling products, so perhaps that’s incentive enough for advertisers to embrace body diversity on a wider scale.

Until that actually happens, it might be helpful for women to keep in mind that previous research has shown that only 5 percent of women can actually achieve the thin ideal — just something to consider while you’re being bombarded with nearly 3,000 ads on a daily basis.

Life Lesson: Embrace the Journey

The paths in life are many, but depending on where you live (both figuratively and literally), you may have more specific destinations (goals). This focused view can help, as you try to map out all the ways to get there. But then life happens, and you are thrown off course. When this occurs, can you roll with it or will you stall (struggle)?

This point was driven home on a recent meet-up with an old friend. It was like any other Thursday. Our rendezvous point: Long Beach, California. And if L.A. traffic had anything to say, the stop and go (ups & downs) was just the start.

First, he was held up at work (responsibilities), so we pushed our get-together back, and even though I was en route, something told me (intuition) to flip around and head home instead. I came in for a pit stop and re-fueled with some healthy greens and made my way back out. This time I took Pacific Coast Highway, trusting that my GPS would get me there with ease (expectations). Not quite. Because I wasn’t able to pay full attention while driving, I missed a few signs (obstacles). But the unexpected didn’t stop there. Suddenly, without a clear entry in sight, I noticed that I drove right past the restaurant (challenges). I even pulled over on two occasions to ask the people directing traffic, “How do I get back on track (support)?” Still I was led astray (setbacks).

Finally, I saw a parking structure (blessings) and pulled in to discover it was completely full (false alarms)! On my way out, yet again, I asked the guy how I could find my way, only to not understand a word, due to his thick accent (confusion).

So I took matters into my own hands (control), and decided to follow the orange cones (guideposts), and found myself driving through the sand (surprises)! At least it was alongside a dazzling beach (beauty)! — I was lost in the moment (pun intended).

2015-05-15-1431658481-9551441-orangecones.JPG

Recognizing I was lost, I called my friend (initiative). He was equally surprised and perplexed as to what was going on, so he suggested finding me first (self-discovery) and then we could take it from there (process). He pulled aside and I followed behind him (teachers) as he steered aimlessly around Long Beach (the unknown) in search of familiar surroundings (experiences) and a new connection point (opportunities). However, our often abrupt and sudden turns (risks), required much focus (clarity), with no set roads to follow (uncertainty), and continued adjustments (resilience), until a way was shown (faith).

At last, and boy was I glad I ate first (reflection), we stumbled upon (fortune) a lovely restaurant situated along the beach, with a stunning view, and a quiet place to just be (relaxation) and have a heart to heart (profound connection). I couldn’t have imagined a better outcome (perspective). Truly, only life can orchestrate such an incredible journey (fulfillment)! What an adventure!

2015-05-15-1431658900-9741674-longbeach.JPG

Oh, and it turns out the annual Long Beach Grand Prix was taking place (destiny) and our detours (choices) led us exactly to where we were meant to be!

I leave you with this single question: How do you choose to navigate in your journey of life?

Laid Off Canadian Target Employees Embrace ‘Closing Time’ With Bittersweet Music Video

Target Canada closed every last one of the chain’s department stores on Sunday, but not before six employees in Victoria, British Columbia, sent theirs off with a proper farewell.

The workers — still wearing their red Target shirts — made a music video as the store packed up its last items, playing a cover of Semisonic’s “Closing Time” while seated on a dolly being dutifully, purposefully, pulled through the barren aisles.

“We poured our heart into our final goodbye through song, to a job we loved, and a building that contains so many great memories,” drummer Evan Holbein told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

According to the video’s YouTube description, the final product was shot in one take, with no practice, and “lots of improvisation.” In addition to Holbein on the drums rhythmic shopping basket, other band members included Liam McDonald on vocals and Kyle Vanderberg on guitar. Liam Kelly and Brady Zomer pulled the cart, and Eric Deibert caught the whole thing on video.

Reached for comment by the Star Tribune, Semisonic’s actual drummer, Jacob Slichter, said he found the cover to be “really powerful; that slow walk through the empty store and the sounds of things being loaded in the background.”

“I really hope these guys find jobs,” Slichter added.
