I’ve been doing life with these ladies for the last 6 years and it’s so bittersweet to be leaving them // today we spent the day in Sedona, AZ, swimming, creek walking, wine tasting, singing 90’s music at the top of our lungs, laughing, talking, crying, laughing. It was the best. #sisters

How To Get Through Your Twenties, Sanity Intact ⇢

Love these short features on such inspiring young successful ladies.  

To be honest, I cannot think of anything that went exactly as expected. What always shocked me was the fleeting sense of accomplishment each time I reached a goal. For example, when I graduated from medical school, I expected the euphoria to last for a while, yet it was short-lived. One of the great lessons of my 20s is that nothing goes as planned; the key is to accept rather than resist this…Another thing: In my 20s, I looked up to people who worked hard, never slept, and drank Diet Coke for breakfast. My heroes were the warriors who worked non-stop and never came up for air. I later learned the value of taking care of my mind and body — that there is no glory in self-neglect." - Dr. Samantha Boardman, founder of PositivePrescription.com

If you don’t understand, ask questions. If you’re uncomfortable about asking questions, say you are uncomfortable about asking questions and then ask anyway. It’s easy to tell when a question is coming from a good place. Then listen some more. Sometimes people just want to feel heard. Here’s to possibilities of friendship and connection and understanding.

"I am practicing being kind over being right." — Matthew Quick

I heard this quote for the first time sometime last year. And I haven’t been able to let it go since. Being right is something that had/has been ingrained into the person that I am for my entire life. For the past 6-9 months I’ve been trying to practice being kind over being right and I had no idea how difficult it would actually be. To be kind means to listen without simultaneously thinking up a response, to be kind means to abandon defensiveness, to be kind means to think of others before thinking of myself and my need to be right. And It sounds so simple but it’s really hard. And I fail at it a lot. But in the times that I haven’t been failing miserably I’ve learned so much. For the first time I’ve not only heard the thoughts and opinions of people who have different world views but I’ve been able to step away from my own and listen to them, understand them, and process them. And I’ve found the person I am, the world view I come from to be so challenged, and even changed in some areas. Being kind, being a better listener helps you see that maybe you aren’t right all of the time either, sometimes I feel like it’s just choosing to be kind over being stupid. Haha.

It’s strange to of been so sure of myself, my beliefs, and my decisions at age 20 and now to be on the verge of being 24 and be questioning so many things, to see the things I value move and change before my eyes, and ultimately to feel like I don’t really know the person I am becoming right now. It’s strange. It’s good, I’m sure it’s good. But it’s strange none the less.

I think we still live in a culture that assumes that men are single by choice and women are single because no one wants them.

If you are in the business world, in finance, in law, whatever domain you’re in, I want you to shoot for the top. I want you to run companies, build empires. I want you to rise to the top and not apologize for it, but be godly as you pursue it. Don’t neglect your family. Don’t lean that ladder against the wrong wall. Walk in uprightness, dignity, work your tail off, and succeed. Piety does not equal passivity. The more confident we are in the Lord, the more aggressive we should be in almost all walks of life.

- Matt Chandler
