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. The founder of one of my favorite podcasts of all time has a new book, but even more exciting to NPR-nerd me: She was interviewed on Fresh Air this week on childbirth injuries, parenting, and working motherhood.
  2. I quoted Alison Faulkner (from her podcast episode 66) on my Instagram stories this week, but I’ll leave it here too: You cannot negatively think your way to positive results. Hear, hear.
  3. If you haven’t read Braving the Wilderness yet, this article is a great primer, focusing on why group processing can be so powerful and empowering.
  4. I used to think all the kids’ resilience tools from Sesame Street were cheesy and ineffective. Then I had my own kids – and ya’ll they are BRILLIANT.
  5. The parenting questions in this ethics column are fascinating. The first is especially humbling, and the second a bit heartbreaking.

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