People have misjudged me my whole life, for better or worse. No one has really figured it out. That makes sense! I am just now, finally letting myself try to form it. So here is to the women out there who (try to) live from heart and soul.

The public demurs from facing reality and accepting measures that might fix the problems, based on a misplaced--and manipulated--appreciation of self-reliance and freedom, O'Kane explains and illustrates.

The Passionate Parenting Manifesto

Dr. Shelley Prevost

What began as a creep toward adolescence now feels like a full on gallop toward adulthood. I can't stop it, nor do I want to. But I have a love-hate relationship with this passage of time. Because, as the author poignantly puts it, "I can't imagine me without them."

Thatcher had the cheek to venture through the knotty baroque thickets of Bach's "A Musical Offering" and "Goldberg Variations," well trammeled by legendary choreographers.

Sometimes we'll get it right and sometimes we'll mess up and have to start over. I know this because I have had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing hundreds of women from all across the country -- women who are trying to chart their own course.

Work The Way You Know it is Dead

I don't mean that work doesn't exist and that we should all just drop what we are doing and quit our jobs. In fact, far from it.

Why the ISIS Manifesto About Enslaving Girls and Women Must Be Taken Seriously

Harry Leibowitz | Posted 02.15.2015 | Impact
Harry Leibowitz

If the people of the Middle East stop funding and supporting these killers, then the rest of the world will surely stand by their side. Now is the time to act, before this becomes such a compelling case to so many more testosterone driven, frustrated men that we are plunged into a new world war in the Middle East to stop them.

How to Live Your Life, and Not the Life Others Expect of You

Holstee | Posted 01.06.2015 | Healthy Living

Bravery is the ability to move forward with fear looking us right in the eyes. But while Bravery can be inspired by the world around us, nobody can give it to us. We need to find it and feel it ourselves. We all know the feeling. We have all experienced a form of bravery before, but what then is fear? Or should we ask, whom is it that we fear?

Love Need Not Apply for Conditions: My Love Manifesto

Loren Kleinman

Love: It's the most work and the least work. It's the story we wait for as little girls. It's the story we warn our daughters about. It's the story we accept against all odds. It's the one thing, the one emotion and the one action that demands every bit of commitment.

The Metamodernist Manifesto: After Postmodernism (Part V)

Seth Abramson | Posted 10.29.2014 | Books
Seth Abramson

While neither artists nor critics exactly choose their predisposition or disposition, and certainly don't choose the historical epoch in which they live, it becomes increasingly difficult to imagine an intellectual or cultural sphere in which the postmodern exceeds the metamodern in either mimetic rigor or emotional and moral amplitude.

The Metamodernist Manifesto: After Postmodernism (Part III)

Seth Abramson | Posted 10.25.2014 | Books
Seth Abramson

If postmodern thought holds that all truth is relative, metamodernism holds that absolute truth exists -- but evolves differently for each person.

The Metamodernist Manifesto: After Postmodernism (Part II)

Seth Abramson | Posted 10.22.2014 | Books

The question, for both postmodernist and metamodernist philosophers and artists, is why and how a text is non-absorptive.

The Metamodernist Manifesto: After Postmodernism (Part I)

Seth Abramson | Posted 10.15.2014 | Books
Seth Abramson

When we speak of modernism and postmodernism, and for that matter when we speak of metamodernism, what we mean by "movement" is a series of ideas in philosophy that are a) the subject of scholarly study and discussion, and b) can serve as actionable intelligence for various artists' creative practices.

The Metamodernist Manifesto: The Rebirth of the Author

Seth Abramson | Posted 10.01.2014 | Books

Nobody is made happy by any of this; indeed, its existential utility has increasingly proven to be a net negative, even as its formal coherence (once a strong suit) has begun to erode in the Internet Age.

Critique Or Create? You Decide

Julie R. Enszer

Once I knew I was not going back to Saginaw, not finding a man to marry, not going to have children, not going to collect all of the things that people told me were an important part of life, were in fact the very things in life that bring happiness, once I rejected all of these things, the real work begins.

Women took to twitter, not as victims, but as thoughtful, brave, inspiring, honest vessels carrying messages of outrage, frustration and anger at being treated as if their love and affection, or even their bodies, were things to be owned and violated by any man with an inclination.

You're in a job you find unfulfilling and it seems that, day by day, your confidence takes a hit. If 30 is the new 20, what's that make 25? I know it's easy to get frustrated, easier still to doubt yourself in the midst of uncertainty, but know this: It can all work out, provided you have the will and the patience to make it so.

Yes, social media abstracts and collates human voices where other media forms can humanize and deepen them. It can also spread those voices across the globe in ways no other medium can.
