What’s Helping Me Now

Every once in a while, the internet can feel like a source of shame or just a waste of time. When I’m tempted to throw in my virtual towel and bail on the technology world, I challenge myself to find something uplifting and useful online. Here’s what I’ve found around the web this week.

  1. This book was such an educational and humbling read. I’ve written a bit about privilege on here before; reading books like Homegoing is part of my work.
  2. Anyone else have body acceptance on their to-do list? I’ve been actively working on mine for months and am considering taking this class in early January.
  3. Tara Brach on survival of the nurtured: “We can’t feel belonging to our world if we don’t let the parts of ourselves belong.”
  4. My favorite affirmation of the week, from one of my favorite self-care examples: “I am clear. I create space to hear the whispers from myself that guide my life.”
  5. This is why I’m an organ donor. (Found via the must-follow Tank’s Good News.)
  6. The entire New York Times parenting section is gold, but this article on childhood masturbation is especially fascinating: What is the “upper limit of normal”?

Have a beautiful weekend, and thank you for being here.
