I’m starting to notice a theme.
Continually sharpening my craft. 💓 . . . I also recommend all of these, particularly the one on top. Particularly for women who do confessional writing, this one is a must read. I've referred to it repeatedly over the years.

GROWTH = Not always fun in the beginning 🙌🏻 ▫️ Love is @katrina_hope texting to ask me how much writing I have actually done in October and then agreeing to hold each other mutually accountable to our goals. Love is @elisa_lou knocking on my bedroom door, when she sees I've opened a bottle of wine and made my comfort food (pasta), then sits on my bed and listens to my disorganized thoughts and tears (all this after she has had a long day of being a nurse). Love is @katbradfordrn and I giving room for our cave seasons and always reconnecting with depth. Love is when @designanddigest and I can be late to a meeting and know there is grace. Love is @golden_pineapple08 and I sharing our relational challenges and laughing that we aren't alone and also giving each other a bit of a kick in the ass to change patterns. Love isn't always shiny sparkly feel goodness, it can be vulnerable, uncomfortable conversations and selfless actions that lead to a deepening of relationship. ▫️ Love is the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth. ... Many choose relationships of affection and care that will never become loving because they feel safer. The demands are not as intense as loving requires. The risk is not as great. - Bell Hooks 📷: @alimakesthings
"I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else's whim or to someone else's ignorance." —Bell Hooks ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our event series is named after three strong female icons that we admire. There were millions of wonderful woman to choose from (obviously), but we landed on three that represent different fields, achievements and cultures—and of course, their names sounded pretty sweet together. For the ones we didn't pick, we also plan to regularly feature them here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those of you not familiar with Bell Hooks, she is an American author, feminist, and social activist, who's focus in writing has been the intersectionality of race, capitalism, and gender, and what she describes as their ability to produce and perpetuate systems of oppression and class domination. She has published over 30 books and numerous scholarly articles, appeared in documentary films, and participated in public lectures. She has addressed race, class, and gender in education, art, history, sexuality, mass media, and feminism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bellhooks #femaleicon #feministicon #womenweadmire #powerwomen #cocoyokobell #cocoyokoandbell #supperclub #womensdinner #femaleforged #bossladies #bosswomen #thefutureisfemale #contemporaryfoodlab #berlinfood #localfood #slowfood #mindfulfood #ineslauber #berlindining #airofcolors #kathykwon #powerwomen #femaleempowerment #mindfuldinner #whereveryoufothereyouare #inthenow #inthemoment #beherenow
