Mobiles by Yuko Nishikawa593棋牌


These ceramic mobiles by Yuko Nishikawa made me gasp.


“Purpose is an essential element of you. It is the reason you are on the planet at this particular time in history. Your very existence is wrapped up in the things you are here to fulfill. Whatever you choose for a career path, remember, the struggles along the way are only meant to shape you for your purpose.”
Chadwick Boseman

Call me Trim Tab593棋牌

“Something hit me very hard once, thinking 关于 what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Elizabeth — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, “Call me Trim Tab.”

The truth is that you get the low pressure to do things, rather than getting on the other side and trying to push the bow of the ship around. And you build that low pressure by getting rid of a little nonsense, getting rid of things that don’t work and aren’t true until you start to get that trim-tab motion. It works every time. That’s the grand strategy you’re going for. So I’m positive that what you do with yourself, just the little things you do yourself, these are the things that count. To be a real trim tab, you’ve got to start with yourself, and soon you’ll feel that low pressure, and suddenly things begin to work in a beautiful way.”
Buckminster Fuller

Please exhale!593棋牌


I have been holding my breath since March. While trying to keep my companies alive and making sure my kids feel emotionally safe. ⁣

I am done holding my breath. ⁣

“At any point in our lives, we can choose to be happy, no matter the circumstances,” my wise friend @suefan once said. ⁣

Think about it. ⁣

At any time you can choose love over fear. ⁣

I refuse to let 2020 go down as an unlived year.⁣

I hereby exhale and surrender to what is. ⁣

I am going to breathe deeply and actively look for and celebrate anything that brings me joy:⁣

Be it this imperfectly perfect heart-shaped tomato.

Rollerskaters dancing. (Check my Instagram story highlight titled HAPPY) ⁣

Tending to my plants.⁣

Sitting with my neighbors on my stoop.⁣. …

Given that 2020 is one big dumpster fire, I am trying to think of joy-producing ideas that up the ante. ⁣

Here’s one that made me giggle: What if we muster up all of our courage and confess to our secret crushes?

“Hi [insert name],⁣

2020 sucks. But I figured it would make you happy to know that I have been secretly crushing on you.”⁣

Can you imagine how that would make your day? ⁣

There are 124 days left in 2020. Let’s live a little. Let’s be warriors of joy. ⁣

PS: Please, exhale. ⁣

How To Citizen With Baratunde593棋牌

I was able to listen in on the live taping of this episode of How To Citizen with Baratunde and Eric Liu as his guest. A timely and important listen for many of us. And also, for me, as I just became a citizen, after living in the USA for 21 years. Eric started Citizen University and is an overall impressive human. Thank you Baratunde for all you do. Very, very excited for this new podcast of yours.

Water Has Three States593棋牌

“Water has three states, but you know, not really only three—clouds, fogs, mist, rain, and many others. A rainbow is related to water. Our bodies are 70% water, and our planet is also 70% water on the surface. We’re almost like a puddle of water. As you know, those different states of water can look very beautiful, but sometimes they can be very violent, like a tsunami.”
Ryuichi Sakamoto

How Much Heart People Invest593棋牌

“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”
― Ted Hughes
