    This article was so enjoyable to read! I didn't know anything about 'Dirty Computer' but am now so intrigued; your acknowledgement of the feminist and queer undertones are extremely compelling and I want to check it out!

    Your reference to Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' as another politically-charged visual album makes me wonder if this type of art/music is on the rise... and I really hope it is!

    Thank you for sharing, Charlie! I similarly have struggled to meditate when my usual mindfulness meditation class ends for the summer. I find that guided meditations keep me more focused and make longer periods of time easier! (Headspace and Youtube meditation videos are great) I also really love practicing Loving Kindness, because it helps me send love to myself and to others in the world. If you haven't tried it, I would highly recommend! Thanks for all the helpful tips

    Hello wonderful mindfulness ladies!

    Today, I am focusing on the core value #Vision !!

    Vision: A bSmart woman understands that leadership begins with a clear vision for herself and others.

    As women, we are often discouraged from having specific career and lifestyle goals (by society and subsequently by our peers and ourselves)

    Create a mission statement for yourself, and don’t shy away from dreaming big, recognizing your full potential, and being specific.

    Some example statements to get you started:
    - I’m at my best when…
    - My goal in life is to pursue…
    - My strengths are...
    - I will find opportunities to use my natural talents and gifts by…
    - I am inspired by…
    - The 3 most important values in my life are…
    - As an ideal friend/ family member/ co-worker/ citizen of the earth I want to…

    My mission is to pursue editing, writing, and marketing by building a strong network, dedicating my time and energy to every job and opportunity, and working my way up so that I can work for a successful magazine or editorial company. I’m at my best when I practice self care, stay organized, am doing something I enjoy, and have a supportive social circle. I would like to pursue entrepreneurship, help others (especially in the mental health realm), and be supportive, compassionate, and generous to friends, family, and others in my environment.

    What's your #vision for yourself? What's your #vision for others?

    Feel free to comment, tag others, and share on your stream!

    When we, as women, support each other in fulfilling our goals, great things can happen

    Hi bSmart ladies!

    Today, I’m focusing on the core value of #EmotionalIntelligence

    Emotional Intelligence: A bSmart woman seeks to understand another's past to advocate for their future

    In order to support and empower one another, we need to actively hear the voices of the women around us and acknowledge that we come from different backgrounds and are comprised of unique identities.


    Activist and feminist icon Audre Lorde’s intersectional approach to identities recognizes that we are never defined by one identity, but are simultaneously all of our identities at once; our identities are constantly overlapping like an intricate venn diagram. At the same time, some of our identities come to the forefront depending on changing situations and contexts.


    Keeping #EmotionalIntelligence and Audre Lorde’s intersectional approach to identities in mind....

    List 3 of your identities (i.e. socioeconomic status, educational background, nationality, geographic upbringing, race, career path, gender, religion, etc. etc.) that you consider most prominent in your everyday life.

    Consider: How have these identities shaped you and socialized you to be who you are today? If you were not socialized according to these identities, would you be different?


    For me, I consider my female gender, Midwestern upbringing and values, and educational status (recent obtainment of a Bachelor’s degree) most prevalent in my current situation, especially as I am a Michigander in NYC!
    If I were not all three of these things and many more, I may not have pursued a degree in psychology (a largely female-driven major) at the University of Michigan (an in-state school for me).

    In order to support and empower one another, we need to actively hear the voices of the women around us and acknowledge that we come from different backgrounds and are comprised of unique identities.

    This core value particularly resonates with me as a mindfulness tactic; if we are mindful of others' identities, we can more easily spread kindness and compassion.

    bSmart babes! I'm back in NYC since last night and excited to get back into the conversation. I'm glad to see so much activity in the group, I'll be responding in the next couple of days.

    Also, I'm starting a buddy read of The Defining Decade by Dr Meg Jay. Who's with me?
    Tracy Kim Anne Whiting Joanna Gaden - you've mentioned interest before, you still interested in reading along?

    We can have a book club meetup/hangout in a few weeks and discuss!
