“Five” for your Friday

So here are some things I gathered this week.

On loving ourselves and each other:

http://www.brenebrown.com/my-blog/2013/3/20/meuitdwaubpgr9qt1xanm3fwwa0sjo (shame is not a tool that allows for change)

On politics and Dying:

On Rape and Rape Culture:

Five For Friday

I decided that I love reading other people’s round up posts enough that I ought to try it. Being a huge fan of alliteration I went immediately to the Tuesday Ten. Unfortunately I chickened out at the possibility that I might not be able to do 10 every time. (I was going to say every week, but I think we’ve seen how my schedule is a little, um, more flexible than that. I will try. I always do.) So, I came up with 5 on Friday. What I love about these types of posts is getting the chance to hear about and read blogs that I probably never would have read otherwise. I hope that that is what happens here. So without further ado, here is my first list:
