Hi Kind Reader,
Today I awoke to a wonderful surprise. I’m featured on the incredible Gigi Eats Celebrities as a guest author. Gigi is all sorts of brilliant and powerfully kind in the most lighthearted of ways.
Hi Kind Reader,
Kindness-in-action! My grandmother is being honored posthumously for her selfless, brave choice to help Jewish men and women escape the horrors of the Nazis during #WWII.
As a young, single mother with a fourth-grade education in the poorest neighborhood of Budapest, Hungary, my grandmother did what others with much greater means would not. She risked everything to help others because she knew no other way to be except, to be #kind.
My father Les Besser (pictured with my grandma) will accept the award on her behalf in San Francisco. Congratulations, Namama. I’m sure your wings grew an extra size when they announced the great news.
Love your proud granddaughter, Nancika
How do we quiet the incessant and often-nonsensical unhelpful static to make space to be led by the direction of our inner voice? In other words, how do we listen to our truth?
When we are faced with a pivotal choice it is amazing how many of us choose to ask everyone for what to do next except the one entity that actually lives with the effects of our decisions: Our inner self. Why do we give up our power? Why do we abdicate actively participating in our future?
A paradox emerges: In order to have enough future security, we must surrender our prior imaginings. It is now imperative to choose something specific and something solid. The whimsical wishes that filled our waking and sleeping dreams before adulthood now seem to only take place during slumbering respites in darkness.
Why? Why is being a “responsible adult” somehow equated with being dreamless? Why is whimsy regarded as a waste of time?
When considering your next career, pause and ask yourself this single question: “How do I align who I am with what I want to accomplish?”
