The thing about white privilege is that white people don’t see it.  “White privilege” doesn’t mean your life hasn’t been hard, it simply means that your skin color isn’t one of the things making it harder.
This series is meant to share experiences of real people who have experienced racism and still experience it. The goal is to shine a light so that we ALL see it and take actionable steps to do something about it.

Dorothy May Ross, CEO of Women Rocking Life, Co-author of Bouncing Back in Thriving & Changing Times and creator of online training program Reinventing Yourself in Midlife and Beyond. More importantly though, I’m a wife and a mother to 3 incredible sons.

So, who am I? Well, over the years I have tried my hand at so many different things and when time for retirement came I had not found what I wanted to do with the second half of my life. I was used to having a busy life and I loved the idea of doing something different with my life I just didn’t know what that was going to be.

I was looking to discover what would be fulfilling and satisfying for me once I retired. With 33 years in the paint industry I loved my job yet I knew if I didn’t have a plan for the next chapter in my life I would be looking to go back to where I came from, back to corporate America.

I remembered something I heard and learned a long ago – that to have a smooth road to follow and a bright light that leads the way you have to create it, not discover it – to concentrate on it, believe in it, learn it and place it in your heart. 

We have to go from Inspiration (creative) to Revelation (revealing),  and avoid carelessness in life as we move toward what we desire. It’s also important to keep your eyes open for distractions and negativity, keeping the vision alive.

The thing to remember is that we have the opportunity with each new day to create the beginning of our “next chapter” and we get to do it step-by-step as we see it. We get to be life changers who design our own lives.

I now leverage the wisdom I have acquired from my life experiences to be a light and resource to help other people change what life has torn down in their lives and to recreate it new as they see it.
