Lessons in how to be a good ally from Black Panther: be quiet, and know your place. Also, don’t expect praise.
In light of all the frustration and terror and anger, I thought that this announcement and decision was a huge step in the right direction. Yes please to more of this.
This writer spent two years trying to fix the gender imbalance in her stories, and it’s a good reminder that we often need to be more intentional and look more closely at our choices. When we don’t, we can kid ourselves that we’re doing pretty well with being unbiased.
Constantly working on accepting the lack of perfect, both in my business and in my personal life. Not everyone is going to like me, and that’s a good thing, considering the fact that I don’t like everyone.
Always working on being more straightforward and blunt, especially when other people are tramping around on my boundaries and expecting me to take it lying down. We all need to practice saying what we mean and meaning what we say!
We’ve all read these before, but it made me feel more grounded in my purpose to read them again this week. I think I’m doing a pretty good job with avoiding these regrets!
I loved this graduation speech. Most of society’s arguments are kept alive by a failure to acknowledge nuance.
I’ve been feeling really run-down this week while fighting a cold that won’t seem to go away! In the meantime, I had lots of interesting calls for work about new projects I’m excited about, delicious shakshuka for lunch, lots of sunshine and smiles, a wonderful story-telling event, and puppy cuddles All in all, it’s been a great week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xo.
