NETWORKS

Networking. It’s not pretending to sip on cheap champagne at your work mixer or empty like-for-likes on Insta. A network is any opportunity to expand a relationship– be it career, romantic or kinship. Whether it’s on the interwebs or IRL, the true measure of networks are in the amount of energy we invest in them. So next time you’re cultivating a new squad, think about the people guaranteed to lift you up, then invite them in and watch as they orbit around you, strengthening the most important relationship of all: the one with yourself.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE

If you’re a Western millennial, you’re living in one of the greatest periods of choice. While that may seem paralyzing at times, it’s incredibly empowering. Our generation is far beyond societal norms. Increasingly, we are nonconforming in terms of gender, religion and relationships. We are designing our jobs. Tattoos are smiled upon in the workplace. Women can have babies without meeting the donor. Stay-at-home dads are a thing. This freedom of choice is allowing us to create our world, keep moving forward and continually dissolve the boundaries placed on or by us. As the great Drake one said, “What a time to be alive!”

WOKE AS FUCK

“STAY WOKE!” You’ve seen it on Insta feeds and graffitied in public restrooms, but this Internet slang is no mere meme. It’s an ominous rally cry to stay educated and active on social and racial issues. We live in the Information Age and there’s no pretending the truth isn’t out there. We read the news, we’ve watched 13th, we’ve heard of Ferguson. Our generation doesn’t get to pretend we didn’t know. Our access to knowledge is our responsibility and our power. So this week we’re on hyper-alert, reminding ourselves to stay vigilant and vocal for every life that matters.

STARVE YOUR DOUBT

There’s an old saying, “Feed your faith and starve your doubt.” And, as it turns out, the best way to silence negative talk is to screen it– just like when your mom calls during Thursday Book Club. If you try to fight doubt, it looms larger, and if you converse with doubt, it grows in meaning. But if you see it’s calling you, notice it, and calmly let it go to voicemail while you focus on the positives ahead, then suddenly you’re winning. Come with us this week as we go on a doubt diet. Also, you should probably call your mom back.
