Relax. Breathe. 

That essay/project will be finished.

That relationship will work out. And, if it doesn’t, it wasn’t meant to be anyway.

Your mom/dad/grandparent isn’t going to kill you.

The world is not collapsing.

You are beautiful, even if you can’t see it right now.

You’re not a failure. You’re not worthless.

Its a bad day, not a bad life.

Ways To Win Over Your Boss

You go through life trying to seek approval from your superiors. You constantly want to please your parents with good grades, impress your coaches on the field and wow your professors in the classroom. And as an adult, you want to win over your boss at work. Here’s how!

When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: If you look at the science about what is happening on Earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this Earth and the lives of the poor, and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse. What I see everywhere in the world are ordinary people willing to confront despair, power, and incalculable odds in order to restore some semblance of grace, justice, and beauty to this world.

Motherboard reports that the dirtiest megacity in the world is my home sweet home, New York. The Big Apple produces more waste and consumes more energy than other mega-metropolises like Tokyo, Moscow, Mexico City, or Kolkata. I checked in with NRDC Urban Solutions expert Melissa Wright, who says “New York’s apartment and office buildings offer up a huge opportunity to reduce the impact of urban living—they make up more than 70 percent of NYC’s carbon footprint.” Since three out five humans will live in a megacity in the future, we better get started on some city-level sustainability solutions.

To the anger, be kind.
To the darkest, cruelest pasts, be kind.
To the shadows of others planting demons in you, be kind. 
To the people getting it wrong and wrong and wrong, be kind. 
To the ignorant, to the morally shamed, to the criminal, be kind.
To the unloving, the hateful, and the unkind, be kind.
Kindness corrects. Kindness heals. Kindness revolutionizes.
Kindness feeds the good in us and starves all that is ugly,
mean-spirited, and selfish by refusing to feed the flame
with more of the same fire. Be soft as water. Be kind.
—  be kind like water in a world of fire \ j.m.b.


Good morning✨

Love, love, love… Such a beautiful and powerful feeling. I’m a hopeless romantic, so this is frequently on my mind. Lately, I’ve been looking at who we are with the person we love. I like seeing couples who come together and actually make the world a better place. Great things happen when two people bring out the best in one another. Harmony in your relationship frees your energy up to focus on bigger things.

Cheers to love and harmony today💙 and bringing out the best in our partners.

Happy Thursday!


Solutions: The Peer-to-Peer Economy


If the root of our economic problem is the tendency toward centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the EU and the WTO and the IMF and the World Bank) why does anyone believe the solution will be centralized, globalist bureaucracies (like the BRICS Bank and the EEU and the AIIB)? Today we look at a truly paradigm-shattering civilization-wide change taking place right now that has the potential to undermine the status quo: the peer-to-peer economy.
