Happy Jamhuri Day folks!
We have to take time to appreciate those who risked their lives for our country’s independence. Given what is curently happening around the world, we should never take for granted the simple pleasures, like the freedom of movement, speech…well you get the idea. For me, I am done with semester 1 of graduate school, I will get to share with my experience over the next few days. So I am spending what’s left of 2014, assessing and plotting for 2015.
As you continue to enjoy this long weekend, here are list of lists to keep you busy:
How to eat on a healthy budget (Levo League)
How to stop having awful Mondays (The Muse)
Yesterday, I listened to one of the most powerful Lively Shows in its 48-episode history.
Jess Lively interviewed Brooke White, a former contestant on Season 7 of American Idol. Brooke talks about exploring her musical talent, hairdressing among other things. I don’t want to preempt this episode. You just have to listen for yourself.
Missed past episodes? You can browse the archives here or start with my personal faves: Erin Loechner, Amber Housely, Noah Kagan, Eric Williams. (And no, I am not Jess Lively’s brand ambassador.)
This quote sums up Brooke’s message:
Dorie Clark’s You are not a failure and Stop believing that you have to be perfect
What’s your definition of success?
