😜 Relive your favorite childhood activity
Challenge #0019 - Shamelessly relive your favorite childhood activity
Quick shoutout to Steven, Marc, Wit, Vic, Dan, GJ, Pablo, Stefan, Fernando, Nathan, Eric, James, Will, Elom, and Paul. Thank you.
Today's challenge is about shamelessly reliving your favorite childhood activity.
Think about the last time you did something that was really just for fun. Seriously, just fun and not for any other reasons.
Maybe it's watching your favorite Kung fu movie back when you were a kid, or maybe it's drawing your favorite Disney movie characters.
Maybe it's playing Mario Kart or Goldeneye on N64 (remember slappers-only mode?). 😎
Whatever it is, do it and do it shamelessly.
Let's jump into this week's challenge:

📚 Kick Ass Reads
Shoutout to Pablo for spotting my mistake (wrong link)! 😬 Here's an updated link to this article shared last week.
In this podcast, Shankar dives into what causes us to hide our secrets and why we do it (shame). But in fact, most of us share common secrets and we can establish better relationships when we open up. Includes a written transcript for easy reading.
Sticking with the childhood theme, here's a great article on how we can develop empathy vs. frustration when things don't go our way. If you're a parent or planning kids in the future, this is one to bookmark.
Recently came across this authentic, very open newsletter by Katie. In this issue, she shares how working where we live (our homes) can cause us angst but to be kind to ourselves.
Key takeaway: "Self-compassion makes you better at your job. Being kinder to yourself makes you kinder to others. It also helps you approach work with calmness, clarity, and vision."
