In a recent Glamor magazine article, actress Zosia Mamet provided an excellent and moving editorial called, “No, I Won’t Lean in, Thanks.” If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, you can see if here.
What’s great about this piece is that it calls out how we can get lost in striving for what we think we should do, without really stopping to understand our own personal needs:
“The solution, I think, is to ask ourselves what we actually want—each of us personally—and stop putting so much pressure on one another. Success isn’t about winning everything; it’s about achieving your dream.”
I hope that you can carve out a few minutes today to reflect: What is your dream? What makes you happy? Perhaps you’re already living it; and if not, write it down so you can stay focused on what matters to you.
