I like to share random things I learn & collect here:
Niche internet communities of philosophers. Digital gardens. Personal development resources. Cozy book & rain GIFs. Feelings I don't have words for. 300+ job resources for COVID layoffs. Allyship guides. Sun Dance Film Festival tips. The best digital syllabi. Instagram therapist directory. Dope newsletters.
A sample of books that have expanded my mind and been my greatest teachers.
Public accountability challenge to read more long-form content. You can see all the essays i'm reading here or follow along on Twitter.
“What the pupil must learn, if he learns anything at all, is that the world will do most of the work for you, provided you cooperate with it by identifying how it really works and aligning with those realities. If we do not let the world teach us, it teaches us a lesson.”— Joseph Tussman
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”— Viktor E. Frankl
“So I ask myself the question, "if I loved myself, truly and deeply, what would I do?" I love this question. There is no threat, no right or wrong answer, only an invitation to my truth in this present moment.”— Kamal Ravikant
“Wabi sabi is an intuitive response to beauty that reflects the true nature of life. Wabi sabi is an acceptance and appreciation of the impermanent, imperfect, and incomplete nature of everything. Wabi sabi is a recognition of the gifts of simple, slow, and natural living.”— Beth Kempton
“When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love...”
― Marcus Aurelius
“Man naturally desires, not only to be loved, but to be lovely. Instead of pursuing attention via wealth or fame or power, pursue wisdom and goodness. There are 2 paths to being loved. The first path is to be rich, famous, powerful. The second path is to be wise and virtuous.”— Adam Smith
“The courage to be happy also includes the courage to be disliked. When you have gained that courage, your interpersonal relationships will all at once change into things of lightness."— Ichiro Kishimi
“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.""— Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Often “suffering” comes to us in the form of a breakdown, which is really just a breakthrough that we haven’t seen the other side of yet. As hard as it may be to grasp, all things are good, because all things serve us in the way of growth and development."— Brianna Weist
“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty."— Junichiro
