Happy Easter Monday!

Easter Monday

Today is Easter Monday, also known as Bright Monday or Renewal Monday. Easter Monday is observed in many areas around the world including Canada, Poland and France.

Be Brave! Join me in adoring Amsha

I recently watched a TEDtalk on how to start a movement. Maybe you’ve seen it. In the 3 minute talk, Derek Sivers proposes that while a movement does require the audaciousness of one person who is willing to get out there and get the ball rolling, — he uses a video of a shirtless dude dancing crazily in public to illustrate his point– one person, however, does not a movement make. He further illustrates that the actions of that one...
