How to Stay Safe if You’re Caught in a Mass-Shooting – Life Hacker

“HOWEVER, a marathon implies that every step we take is always a step forward.  That if we just put one foot in front of the other and keep trudging away down the path, we’ll reach our 26.2 mile marker and finish. It turns out, life – and your quest for a healthier lifestyle, has a lot more twists and turns than expected.  Rather than thinking of your journey like a straight shot marathon, think of it like a winding labyrinth.” Lost in a Labyrinth: Getting Healthy Isn’t a Straight Shot – Nerd Fitness

“See decisions not as final choices, but experiments.
The anxiety (and paralysis) comes when people are worried about making the perfect choice. And worried about making the wrong choice. Those are two outcomes that aren’t necessary to make a decision, because if we conduct an experiment, we’re just trying to see what happens.” The Science of Failure: Why Highly Successful People Crave Mistakes – Buffer Blog

Equality

“Which is why any discussion of this subject requires a major caveat. Yes, women suffer consequences for their lack of confidence—but when they do behave assertively, they may suffer a whole other set of consequences, ones that men don’t typically experience. Attitudes toward women are changing, and for the better, but a host of troubling research shows that they can still pay a heavier social and even professional penalty than men do for acting in a way that’s seen as aggressive. If a woman walks into her boss’s office with unsolicited opinions, speaks up first at meetings, or gives business advice above her pay grade, she risks being disliked or even—let’s be blunt—being labeled a bitch. The more a woman succeeds, the worse the vitriol seems to get. It’s not just her competence that’s called into question; it’s her very character.” The Confidence Gap – The Atlantic

These Gender-Bending Disney Characters Will Make You Rethink Those Childhood Classics – Huffington Post

That’s all. Aside from Anna and Elsa, the only women we hear from are their mum (who says three words in the entire film and is dead by the end of the second song), and Kristoff’s (delightful) adoptive mum. In this film all about the relationship between two sisters, men get to be princes, kings, fathers, dastardly dukes, snowmen, shop owners, ice traders, and even reindeer. Women? Women can be princesses and mothers.” Frozen’s world full of men – Consider the Tea Cosy

“I know you keep putting life on hold. Find yourself turning on the TV. Having another snack. All while suffering through another day in the relationship/job/health routine that just doesn’t satisfy you.
And it’s all under the guise of doing more planning, or research, or getting the right food, or getting a gym membership, or, or or…” Let me read your mind for a moment – Heather Day Wellness
