There comes a time in every young woman’s life where she must take a giant step forward into the abyss we call maturity and acknowledge the painful, terrifying truth that her mother is a human being.

Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking, brings us close to the actually existing world and its wholeness.

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

We are made of memories and formed by experience. I keep wondering what kind of people we would be, and what kind of world this would be, if when bad things happened we could erase them, or somehow make them sweet.

— 

Sue Halpern considers the implications of MIT’s research into “taking the sting out of bad memories by switching the bad ones with good ones.”

Indeed, “we” are the sum of our experiences and the memories of those experiences, good and bad. As Henry Miller elegantly put it in his meditation on the art of living:

The art of living is based on rhythm — on give and take, ebb and flow, light and dark, life and death. By acceptance of all aspects of life, good and bad, right and wrong, yours and mine, the static, defensive life, which is what most people are cursed with, is converted into a dance, ‘the dance of life’…

Also see neurologist Oliver Sacks on the complexities of memory.

creativeexpressive said: What's your problem with Sofia Vegara's skit at the Emmys Ceremony?

For those who missed it, the clip can be seen here

Lots of people thought it was sexist, demeaning, and perpetuating the idea that women are there to just look pretty and twirl on a pedestal. 

After the event, Sofia was asked about it and said “I think its absolutely the opposite. It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself.” (via Entertainment Weekly)

Smart Girls, what do you think? 

Hmmmmm I dunnnnoooo Sofia….

Yeah, I don’t know either. That was super off-putting. 

Omg, that was so bizarre and wrong I don’t even know where to begin, what to say.
