Reclaiming our Worth

Who are you when you’re not defined by your work? How do you feel about yourself when you do not have the external validation of being a “provider”?

Love is the ultimate worship – first, the discovery of by seeing others, the finding of self through others, the exaltation of self as the greatest love and then the actual real work; loving outside of yourself. 

You don’t hate tiktok, you hate change and other stories

It’s been really interesting to sit on a platform of “revolutionaries” and free thinkers, folks who if you let them tell it – were crucial in shaping the culture of Twitter and social movements – hate TikTok. TikTok is the future. Sounds corny and maybe it is, but I see the vision and I feel…
