Hey friends,

Invitation to join me in The Corners

Pop-culture Post-script

Honest to God, the Netflix docu-series, CHEER is completely worth watching. There is a lot to love about it and the kids’ stories are compelling and heartbreaking and inspiring all at once. Episodes 5 and 6 made me cry.

This Hidden Brain podcast about how intense emotions change our behavior is worth listening to.  It was humbling to hear how difficult it is to always act the way we want to. I mean, I knew that already, but here’s some explanation as to why.

This article about negativity in relationships made me realize some things that were rough, but helpful.

This Instagram post by Lizzo. What a difference 10 years can make.

OK, that’s it for now. 

See you in The Corners.
