Sometimes, Cooper sends me photos of beautiful sunrises that he sees.
When things are hard I lean into hope.
After years of leadership in the gun violence prevention movement, I learned that to preserve my energy and #keepgoing, hope was essential. Sustained outrage sucked my focus and creativity, and when that happened, I couldn’t be useful to anyone.
Here are things that are giving me a bit of hope and joy this week and maybe they’ll encourage you, too:
My favorite app created a playlist to help you cope with your stress. The way this guy lived his life. Getting inside people’s heads on SubStack. My new book club. I picked up this classic novel and got totally lost in it. And as always, helping you feel more confident and beautiful always fills my cup. 😘
What makes you feel hopeful?
