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.
- “Quiet the noise around you; soften its pitch. Our deepest stories are our best teachers. Let the weapons of the weak — the poison, the nagging, the gossip — burn themselves to ash; cast them to the wind. Take back the permission to succeed; make it yours.” Do you give yourself permission to succeed? Elissa Altman’s piece, On Writing and the Permission to Succeed, resonated with me on a guttural level.
- “You’d think I’d be an expert in letting go by now.” A beautiful Modern Love column by Doris Iarovici: “On a Serpentine Road, With the Top Down.”
- “In my school, where even white girls with brown hair seemed to envy the blondes, I didn’t just feel invisible; I felt like a mistake.” So much wisdom from Nicole Chung in “What I Learned From Kristi Yamaguchi.”
- I leave you with something fun to watch during the weekend – What happens when you combine Justin Bieber’s song, Sorry and Bollywood dancing? This happens. Check out This Remix Of Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ Has The Perfect Bollywood Touch. You will definitely feel the urge to dance.
