  •  In just over two weeks I'll be speaking at (6+ / 0-)

    a high school graduation.

    The theme of my speech:

    Becoming is better than being.

    If we spend our lives becoming something- smarter, happier, healthier, we can't get stuck.

    If we spend our lives being something- smart, happy, healthy, etc... we inevitably decline.

    I really saw a lot of this theme in this diary and the coincidence gave me little chills. Of the good mystic kind.

    Reminded me a lot of Carol Dweck's "growth mindset" as opposed to "fixed mindset" as well.

    Beautiful, important work here tonight.

    Thank you for helping us become more aware, more sensitive, and more informed. At the very least!
