Liza’s Light

I tap my FitBit, scroll until I find walk, and hit go.  I need a walk. I just drove three hours and had crap sleep again. Maybe tonight I need to take two melatonin gummies? I need the sun, the walking meditation, and to figure out how to instill hope to female faculty/staff in a country that is attacking women daily: Roe v Wade, maternal deaths, suppressed voting rights, and murdering women for being female. As I take my first steps onto the trail, I walk by a group of young men gathered in a circle. I think, “If they [...]

Center Yourself.

White caps are spilling over the bow of our aluminum canoe onto my hot pink waterproof sandals. Fear rises like the water in our boat; we are novices navigating the Boundary Waters in its fury. TT at the stern yells, “Center yourself!” She’s twenty-one, and her wisdom rips through the gust. I take a deep breath, squint into the wind, and dig into the wave. This is my MOXIEmoment. Paddling the Boundary Waters with five Gen Z women for a week of Super-Moons, loon spottings, fresh blueberries, YWCA yoga, and watching for bears as you pee. It’s a week of [...]

When I was eight (before confidence peaks for girls in America), I declared I was going to be President, own a school, publish a book like Judy Blume, and circumnavigate the world like Magellan. Ok, I probably didn’t say circumnavigate-but I knew I wanted to see King Tut, the Panama Canal, and travel like Magellan. Next week, I go back to “my roots” where Little Kristi made this declaration-Dubuque, Iowa. “Remembering my roots” is this week’s MOXIEmoment. I’ll be on the main stage at the Dubuque Women’s Leadership Network’s conference wearing my “Remember your roots” tshirt-made by a Dubuque and [...]

Welcome to MOXIEmoments.

Bienvenidos! Selemat Datang! Saibaidee! Welcome to MOXIEmoments with Kristi Hemmer. It’s like Deep Thoughts but MOXIER. It’s a pause: to celebrate, to share what you’re proud of, to reflect on what took guts (MOXIE) to do/say, and to share something you’re excited about. And the research shows, it’s good for the brain. I’ve been doing MOXIEmoments for the past eight years (before I knew it was good for the brain) and what I’ve found is it quickly builds trust, inspires vulnerability, and illustrates the humanity in all of us. MOXIEmoments show what matters-individually and collectively. For me, the past year has been one of awakening. Awakening the [...]
