Mr. Soul On Top

I just listened to this The Moth episode by Christian McBride titled Mr. Soul on Top. He tells the story of him falling in love with James Brown’s music and dreaming of one day performing with him on stage. It is nothing short of moving and incredibly inspiring. I will make my kids listen to this one!

Beautiful People Don’t Just Happen

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Fearless Girl by Skylar Yoo

I saw this shirt over on Skylar Yoo and couldn’t help but think this should have been part of my daily uniform for the past two years. I have tackled so many big things in my life headfirst that are absolutely terrifying but once pushed through will change everything. Also, does it come in kids sizes? I think my daughter could use it as well, given she is just about to head into her teen years.
