Reminded again today that while it’s not happening here, it is happening now. I am really fundamentally shaken up by the fact that the world simultaneously holds people who spend hundreds on dinner and people who have starving children; women who run countries and women who are gang raped; people who walk freely and people who have never known a day outside of dictatorship. How is it possible that we’ve all been okay enough with this dichotomy to allow it to continue to exist?
Today I had the chance to hear from a woman who learned of this dichotomy and decided to do something about it, by founding Women for Women. Groups like this keep me optimistic. And excited, about joining!

Such a beautiful track

do you ever look around at the big crowds of people around you and realize everyone has a story and memories and family and troubles and achievements and a first kiss and a broken heart but you’ll never know any of it and every human life is really intricate and expansive but oh they’ve walked into a shop and you’ll never see them again and you’ll never know just what they were thinking

Lessons learned

  • Disconnect from time to time. Put the phone away, close out of your email, close out of facebook. Put on some music or read a book. Make hot chocolate. Relax. Disconnect from their world and reenter yours.
  • When you have the same skills and resources as the person next to you, use your attitude to set yourself apart.
  • Be unapologetically yourself. Being genuine is something a lot of people lack, and, it’s easy being yourself. Because you don’t need to force anything.
