I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- Do you curse? Turns out profanity might be good for you. Noah Berlatsky explains why swearing isn’t as bad as you think in his piece in Quartz.
- “I’ve written extensively, intimately, damningly, about my children for seven years without once thinking about it from the point of view of their feelings and their privacy. A few months ago I stopped.” I adore this New York Times essay by Elizabeth Bastos, “Why I Decided to Stop Writing About My Children.”
- Have you thought about including an accountability partner to meet your goals? Andre Sólo demonstrates how having a goal buddy helps you achieve success in “The Surprising Way to Grow Your Productivity.”
- How do you deal with the cavalry of bad news? Maybe tuning out is the answer. Deborah Sosin makes a compelling argument in “When Breaking News Breaks Your Spirit, Is It OK To Tune Out?“
What were some of your favorite reads this week?
Oh good – I totally swear too much! I tell my kids that the worst “F” word is fat and the worst “s” word is stupid. I’d much rather they say anything but those!
Phew, me too Tamara! Just yesterday in fact, as I struggled to reinstall a car seat at a rest stop in the middle of a 3 hour ride back from NYC, I might have dropped the F bomb and my son, perched happily on the console parroted it back to me giggling. Oh well, there are worse things I figured and yet, maybe I’m on the right track after all 🙂 Thanks, Rudri, for another great round up!
Glad you enjoyed the roundup, Dana. I’m guilty of swearing too. Can’t sweat the small things.
I am still catching up on my reading. We just returned home a couple of days ago from vacation. Thanks for sharing. xo
