Weekly Grit List – January 21, 2018
Fitness (Mind, Body, and Soul)
Improving your health, treating disease or illness, and generally just feeling better and more alive is a different experience for women. We aren’t always given the time, trust, and respect that we deserve. Recently, I spent some time reflecting on my own experiences with this. And got more than a little angry. – Kasey
Finance (At work or at home)
If you want to be a leader, you have to make learning a core part of your focus. And yeah, this is going to impact your bottom line.
Faith (In yourself, in the world, in a higher power)
I know we’re a week late, but admittedly seeing the flood of MLK quotes last week had an impact. So, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his incredible impact on our country, we leave you with this quote.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the entire staircase.” MLK, Jr.
Family (Given or chosen)
Sabastian Junger’s book called TRIBE is all about how suffering and adversity brings community together like nothing else. Such a thought-provoking read, I immediately started reading it again to keep the thoughts front of mind as I navigate my own community.
Fun (We hope this one is self-explanatory)
Question: What in your life do you do for the sake of doing, not for the outcome? Whether it is martial arts, video games, hiking, creating your art… something in your world is about the journey. If you’re having a hard time with this, you are not alone.
Action Tip: Brainstorm and make sure that you’ve got something fun on your calendar this week.
