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. I’m almost done with this book (it’s the last of my 2018 #bookclubfortwo) and have been marking it up from practically the first page on: “The greatest work and art comes from wrestling with the void.”
  2. Bruce Springsteen on depression: “People would see me onstage and think, ‘I wish I could be that guy.’ And I’d think, ‘Hey, I wish I could be that guy, too.’ There’s a big difference between what you see onstage and my daily general existence.”
  3. These got me good. Real good. #toddlerparenting
  4. “Every one of us forgets our goodness.” – Tara Brach nailing it in her latest lecture.
  5. This is the kind of parent I aspire to be when my kids are adults.
  6. Do yourself a favor and listen to this entire podcast – all the way to the end – to hear two imperfect (albeit famous) people doing the tough stuff right.
  7. My husband sent me this story; I love seeing people use their platforms for good.

Here’s hoping you’ve had a wonderful holiday and will have a beautiful weekend. Thank you for being here.
