I find small obsessions where I can sit for hours, if the time allows, focused on that one thing. Recently my obsession has been about TED talks. If you aren’t familiar with what this is, it’s basically a platform for people to spread their ideas in the form of short talks. Some can be lengthy, but I wouldn’t bother writing this is it wasn’t worth your time.
I’ve compiled a few that I think are essential for inspiration, particularly for millennials who could use a quick pick-me-up.
Any given moment you are led to a ton of questions that you feel you can’t answer. The pressure can give you a headache and all of a sudden everything you thought you knew becomes a question also. It all gets so confusing! There’s no right, no wrong and an unlimited number of possibilities to figure it all out.
Maybe, it’s time for you to realize that your only goal is to figure out what works for you and your purpose; so the answers to those questions fall into place. Over time you learn that embracing the journey is far more rewarding than reaching the destination, and that there’s more to celebrate when you’re on the road to becoming the person you want to be, if you just take the time to appreciate it.
PLEASE remember: Don’t ever compare your beginning to someone else’s middle. Focus on your journey and you’ll see it all unfold the way it is meant to.
When we think of big names affiliated with Facebook, we generally think of Mark Zuckerberg (The list stops there). But have you ever heard the name Sheryl Sandberg?
She was a huge part of the #BanBossy movement launched a couple of months ago with Beyoncé, Arne Duncan, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Garner and more.
I love emotion provoking speeches! When a woman makes a speech or says something that makes you think, want to change, or feel better than before she spoke, she should be celebrated. She deserves to sit on the couch today. She = Gabourey Sidibe.
May 1, 2014, Gabourey Sidibe gave a long and beautiful speech at Gloria Awards and Gala. She is radiantly beautiful and for a person to have half of her confidence…they should be so lucky. I posted about her a while back, and she still stands for the same beautiful thing, strength and self-love. Continue reading for excerpts from her beautiful speech.
There is this compelling young woman who has been making headlines for some time now, and the more I’ve seen her, the more I wanted to know about her. So, I’m offering her a seat, comfortably, on the couch today. Since I mentioned her in last weeks post, it only seems right that I get her acquainted with you guys.
We have Mrs. Alecia Beth Moore Hart aka P!nk. In December of 2013 my personal favorite bad-ass, punk-rock artist accepted Billboard’s Woman of the Year award at their annual Women in Music luncheon in New York City. We can bring to light the fact that Billboard celebrates women every year in the first place. But it was P!nk’s acceptance speech that brings me to (figuratively) sit her on PL’s couch today.
