The biggest missed opportunity in life is to not deliberately reflect on the chaos of our failures.
To be talking publicly is the effort to release any future regret about the topic at hand. The stakes of the 2018 midterm are undoubtedly high and it was exciting to learn from the campaign and have a look firsthand at all my flaws. This is not about blame. Its ownership over my efforts in activism - a place I no longer wish to occupy.
Oh don’t mind me here 👆🏽 but just wondering, have y’all registered to VOTE??? 🗳
If you don’t care then tell me why you think voting is useless?👂🏽(I’m sincerely listening) .
If you’re not sure, you can go to vote.org to find out if you’re registered. 🇺🇸
Sometimes when we look at a massive problem, we fail to understand that a single drop in the ocean to change can make all the difference. Each of us represents a drop and we’re either part of the solution or part of the problem.
It’s easy to sit behind a screen and tout your commitments to inclusion and diversity. What takes real commitment is making it part of your every day action. Doing so forces us to think beyond ourselves and our own outcomes. It forces us to think beyond today and into tomorrow. It forces us to think beyond our immediate fear and into possibility. What are you going to do today, every day, in your life and business to demonstrate the values you profess? It could be as simple as paying that next speaker at your event. Sure, short term that means less profit for you. Long term that means better compensation and more profit for women in business- including yourself. Every drop counts. Every step counts. #payforprogress
The legendary actor River Phoenix had two distinct signatures - one when he was younger (second photo on this post) and one he perfected and used as a young adult (the first photo on this post). For a short life he did more than any other actor of his time to bring attention to environmental issues and animal rights. I will always remember when he suggested to us all to collect as many styrofoam McDonalds boxes as we could put them in trash bags and drop them off at the local McDonalds. A year later McDonalds stop using styrofoam containers. I firmly believe it was his drive to educate the leaders at McDonalds on the environmental consequences of styrofoam that lead to that change. He made us all feel that we could change the world. "When I was old enough to realize all meat was killed, I saw it as an irrational way of using our power, to take a weaker thing and mutilate it. It was like the way bullies would take control of younger kids in the schoolyard." River Phoenix
🎆 Let’s remind ourselves of this every morning. 💯.Can't stop. Won't stop.
Everyone, of any gender, should have the right to experience a full range of emotions and learn to express them in a healthy way. I can’t believe I have to do this, but let’s clarify some things: this post isn’t saying that boys can’t be dominant. Nor is it saying masculinity in general is toxic, just that a toxic form of masculinity exists, which confines boys and men into strict guidelines of what society deems acceptable for them.
