I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what constitutes a real and meaningful life. What are the pillars that need to be in place? What has to be clear in our hearts and our minds so that we can not only feel good, but do good in the world as well? The truth is, I believe without a shadow of a doubt that we are all here on this planet to do good. To fight darkness. To call out injustices. To move humanity forward.

This week, I hope each of us can open our eyes, our minds, and our hearts and try to see how others see things.

Like so many people in my generation, I was raised to believe that powering through was what was expected of you. Winners power through, I was told. The strong power through. Americans power through...

Privacy and reflection. Is there room and/or time for either in this tumultuous campaign?

Back in June when my youngest child Christopher graduated from high school, I wrote about letting go. I said I was ready because he was ready. I lied. Read more to see how dropping my youngest off at college went:

In case you missed it in my Sunday paper yesterday, here's what I've been thinking about this week (inspired by my brothers): not complaining. Read and tell me what you think:

History was made last week.
One of the biggest glass ceilings in our nation was shattered. I hope you take a moment to let that sink in. Because it’s not everyday that you get to see what we saw this past week. In fact, I’ve waited my whole life and my mother never lived to see something she talked about her whole life. So, regardless of your political affiliation, it’s worth taking note of it and honoring it for what it is: A historic moment!.

History was made this week. One of the biggest glass ceilings in our nation was shattered by Hillary Clinton. I hope you take a moment to let that sink in.

The debates are behind us. The candidates have spoken. The pundits have weighed in. The campaigns that have engulfed us and divided us are in the final stretch. This is called crunch time. Get-out-the-vote time. Time to double down. Make calls. Find the remaining undecided voters. Hurry, hurry, hurry! I suggest otherwise. I say, it’s time for all of us to take a breath. Breathe in. Breathe out.

It’s easy to sit back in our ringside seats and pontificate. It’s easy to cheer as our “opponent” gets whipped. It’s easy to complain about our election choices. It’s easy to gossip about public people’s marriages. It’s easy to shake our fists as we watch what’s going on in Charlotte and Tulsa. But it’s harder, much harder, to pause and reflect about our own role in our communities, our cities, our country — what we ourselves are doing/saying/thinking to improve things.

if you’re sitting on the sidelines as a spectator, you never really know what it's like in the ring.

The key to looking forward is to have faith and to find hope. It’s what we all need in order to look forward.

In case you missed my Sunday Paper, I've Been Thinking about my family and why it's important to stay connected.
My mother valued family and passed that legacy on to my siblings and I. Even after the deaths of my parents we still are united. 6 family truths I practice.

Think twice before you call someone "crazy." Here's what I've Been Thinking about:
http://mariashriver.com/blog/2016/08/donald-trump-isnt-crazy-name-calling-maria-shriver/
Mental health is no laughing matter. Neither is name-calling. My cousin Patrick Kennedy has asked people to stop calling Donald Trump "crazy."

During this volatile political season I think a conversation about empathy is a good one for all of us to have. Here's what I've Been Thinking:

http://mariashriver.com/blog/2016/08/power-empathy-khizr-khan-maria-shriver/
I've been thinking: To create a more compassionate, caring, collaborative world, we first need to talk about, and yes exhibit, empathy.

Story
Tagline
My mission: to inform, inspire & ignite people to impact their world as Architects of Change.
Introduction
Maria Shriver is a mother of four, a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist and producer, a six-time New York Times best-selling author, and an NBC News Special Anchor covering the shifting roles, emerging power and evolving needs of women in modern life. Since 2009, Shriver has produced a groundbreaking series of Shriver Reports that chronicle and explore seismic shifts in the American culture and society affecting women today. Shriver was California’s First Lady from 2003 to 2010 and, during that time, she spearheaded what became the nation's premier forum for women, The Women's Conference.

Shriver's work is driven by her belief that all of us have the ability to be what she calls Architects of Change -- people who see a problem in their own life or the community around them, then step out of their comfort zone and do what it takes to create the solution. Her website, MariaShriver.com, features the life stories and life lessons of the world's greatest voices, hearts and minds to inspire people from all walks of life to use their ideas, influence and initiative to make an impact on the world as Architects of Change.

Maria Shriver has become one of the nation's leading advocates for families struggling with Alzheimer's disease. Her father, Sargent Shriver, was diagnosed with the disease in 2003 and passed away in 2011 at the age of 95. Following in the footsteps of her mother, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, Maria has also been a lifelong advocate for people with intellectual disabilities. She is an active member of the International Board of Special Olympics, the organization her mother founded in 1968. She is also on the advisory board of Best Buddies, a one-to-one friendship and jobs program for people with intellectual disabilities founded by her brother, Anthony Shriver.
