- Words matter even if they are positive affirmations in your journal about completing a book project or acting as your own cheerleader. I adored reading “Octavia Butler’s Personal Journal Shows the Author Literally Wrote Her Life Into Existence,” by Kiara Collins. One page of Butler’s journal shows the words, “I will find a way to do this. So be it. See to it.” Thanks to my friend Renee Rivers for bringing this to my attention.
- I love everything Meyers- Briggs and have mentioned this fact before in my space. “How To Be a Good Friend to Each Meyers- Briggs Personality Type” by Heidi Priebe is an interesting read. I am INTJ and the assessment of what I expect in a friendship was on point.
- Breaking stereotypes is important. This Indian bride on her wedding day offered an unexpected way to enter matrimony. In India, this statement is huge. Bravo, Bullet Rani!
- How do you spend your life? This cinematic presentation from Brain Pickings is one of my absolute faves this week. Check out “How You Spend Your Life: A Cinematic Sum of the Hours, Days, and Years Spent on Mundane Activities.”
