In this funny, poignant talk, Brené Brown explains what makes us feel a sense of love and belonging. It’s a powerful reminder (especially for all you Type A’s out there) to embrace the messy and unknown, even when that leap of faith seems scary or uncertain.

I think I’m developing a new obsession with lambs wearing flower hats. (at Qurikancha)

This one time, Zac Efron went to Machu Picchu. So then I went to Machu Picchu. #nofilter (at Machu Picchu)
Andres Amador is an artist who uses the beach as his canvas, racing against the tide to create these large scale temporary masterpieces using a rake or stick ..
Andres’ creations are simply stunning and knowing that these delicate creations are temporary somehow makes them even more beautiful.
There’s a super cliche mantra that I often say to myself whenever I am going through particularly trying moments. But, it never ceases to comfort me. And it has yet to prove itself false. My personal life spiraling out of control? “This too shall pass.” Work is stressfully over demanding with seemingly limited returns on my toil and tears in the office? “This too shall pass.” Overall anxiety from other shit that I said wouldn’t let get to me but it totally is and its manifesting itself through lack of exercise, watching the fourth season of archer in two days and eating four pints of ice cream in just as much time? “This too shall pass.” Feeling exceptionally bloated from all the dairy I’ve consumed in the past 72 hours? “This too shall pass.”
And guess what. It does. I level out. I break through whatever mental block I’m in and I look back and (usually) laugh and (sometimes) cry at where I was compared to where I now am.
All of this to say that, 2014 has been a whirl wind of a fucking year so far. Challenging, for sure. But also very much enlightening, and oh so rewarding. Today, I accepted an offer of promotion at work. I couldn’t be more appreciative and humbled. Its just one of the many wins I feel like I’ve already had in 2014. But it seems like one of the sweetest thus far. Sometimes (all the time?) you’ve got to wade through the trying shit to really appreciate the cake walks.
