Kindness Scales

“It scales better than competitiveness, frustration, pettiness, regret, revenge, merit (whatever that means) or apathy. Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.

Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.”

Seth Godin

None Of Us Comes Fully Equipped

“Let us temper our criticism with kindness. None of us comes fully equipped.”
Carl Sagan

Contribute To The Present Moment

“I don’t think it is possible to contribute to the present moment in any meaningful way while being wholly engulfed by it. It is only by stepping out of it, by taking a telescopic perspective, that we can then dip back in and do the work which our time asks of us.”

A Reflection on Living Through Turbulent Times, by Maria Popova

Clouds Sweater

This sweater!

Christiane Spangsberg

I noticed this drawing on Christiane Spangsberg’s Instagram. Would love a giant version on my living room walls.

Generosity

“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.”
– Dalai Lama

Friday Link Pack Gone Saturday

Playtime: One of my most cherished, slightly absurd, visually compelling movies I have ever seen. It’s DENSE!

– I remember how powerful this was when I was a kid. I am ready for another version of something like this.

– What is important is not so much how long you live as whether you live a meaningful life. This doesn’t mean accumulating money and fame, but being of service to your fellow human beings. It means helping others if you can, but even if you can’t do that, at least not harming them. – Dalai Lama

– I loved Anil Dash’s Twitter Question: Who is a person (not counting family) that opened doors for you in your career when they didn’t have to? Anytime is a good time to show gratitude! Here’s my incomplete answer.

– The world needs this: The Good News Network: Positive Stories 24/7

– I love Jocelyn’s Newsletter. So many gems, every time.

This book is lovely. Makes me wish my kids were little again. For a hot second.

– London based French Illustrator Laurène Boglio makes the funnest GIFs!

This pillow is GIANT. I love everything about it. WANT!

Moon Air Freshener.

– This soap dish made me smile. When does that ever happen? Exactly.

– These Tinsel Silver Earrings made me laugh.

– This favorite child patch is hilarious. Imagine you have 7 grown up kids and give one to each. Ha!

Crushes don’t last forever. You need to keep adding magic and generosity.

What Siri and Alexa might look like, according to artists

Good Enough.

– This made me laugh out loud: The Definition Of Hell For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type (via)

– This ironing board makes total sense.

– What a treasure trove: A compendium of Kevin Kelly’s Recommendo newsletter.

– I have attended the Do Lectures a few years ago and it was an incredible experience. Excited to be speaking and attending the 10 year anniversary DO Wales this June.

100% Human

– You made it to the very end. You deserve a high five.

Everything Here is Wonderful

This dog bed makes me want to get a dog.

Party Hats for Grown Ups

Party Hats for Grown Ups made me smile. Especially the 2017 Good Riddance New Years Eve Edition, designed by designers and artists!

Food Balancing Bulldog

This post made me laugh out loud. Dog owner stacks food on this sleeping bulldog. I have so many questions! Also, I love you internet!

Bat Kite

I laughed seeing this bat kite. F-U-N!

Here We Are

Here We Are is Oliver Jeffers’ latest picture book. It’s gloriously beautiful. In the heart. If you have a little one, buy one. His books are my kids’ favorites.

Oversized Necklace Letters

I like the idea of wearing an oversized necklace letter.

The Warm Wool Blanket

Oh! This wool blanket! Wish listed!
