"Despite all the terrible things happening in our world right now, the weeks-long message of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” fills me with relief in a way little else can. To me, the feeling is truly magical and it’s something that I feel compelled to pass along to my daughters.⠀

But as a working parent, this season also takes my guilt up to a whole new level. The energy required to up the ante on the season for my girls is just not there. After the papers have been written (because, oh yeah, I’m a graduate student too), the house is made just clean enough that the health department isn’t going to come calling, and I’ve put in my 40 hours I am tired." - #RachelHanson

Holiday time for the working parent tends to be a downer due to their schedules but it doesn't mean that they don't care at all. Read our full story by clicking the link in our bio.⠀

"It's #TransDayofRemembrance, and as I sit in my relatively comfortable home writing words, I feel spirits surrounding me.⠀

As I have walked through this life, of being a trans woman, of transitioning, of fighting to be seen, of being out – which is one of the hardest things anyone can do – and of building and rebuilding my life and celebrating in so many ways, death has lurked.⠀

There are hundreds of trans people, mostly women of color, across the globe, who were brutally murdered this year. I will never get to meet them. We light candles and say their names if we know them. We cry and mourn and lay roses. So: how the hell did we get here? Why is this society so cruel to trans people?" ⠀

From today’s #AskAHiringExpert feature. If you’ve worked at a not so great place this question can be tricky to answer! Click the link in our bio for our insights. Question: The last two places I have worked at have unfortunately had a terrible company culture. How do I find out about a company’s culture, without blatantly asking about it during the interview? #jobinterview #interviewtips #careertips #hiringtips #motivationmonday

Portait of @harinef

"So, you're trans. Maybe you've come out in public, maybe you haven't. But you've got a great side hustle. You're a professional freelance copyeditor and writer, with years of experience and established relationships. Yet, existing in the modern era, you don't necessarily see your editors on a daily basis; indeed, you haven't met many of them. And those that you have met, even if you only see them briefly, are like family.⠀

Another job comes into your old inbox, addressed to a name you don't use anymore. You shudder as you respond, and then stop yourself as you "accidentally" write your chosen name at the bottom. You burst into tears as you change it back to your deadname, and send back your cheerful, chirpy email accepting the job. And you feel something shifts in you. And in that moment you know: I have to come out. Not for them, but for me.⠀

This is my story, but it could be so many others. As a trans woman who transitioned later in life, I have had the rare privilege of a previously established career, and somehow, I managed to keep it. Here's how I did it, flying by the seat of my pants, but with a little help from some folks who'd been there before." Story by #MyaByrne

"I eventually was able to be current with my emotions," she said. "I had stuffed the sadness, disappointment and hurt down for years." - Samantha Paige⠀

Think back to being 21 years old. The freedom, the excitement, how invincible you feel. Now imagine being 21 and diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Then, a few years later, you test positive as a carrier of the BRCA-1 gene which puts you at an increased risk of developing certain cancers. This sounds like a nightmare, but for Samantha Paige, it was a reality.⠀

While dealing with both of these diagnoses, battling cancer and enduring a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, she lived life on autopilot, never really allowing herself to fully confront the extreme depression and anxiety she was dealing with for years.⠀

Finally, after a breakdown, a breakthrough came in the form of another diagnosis: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. For Paige, it was a wakeup call. ⠀

We're sure that this question comes up pretty often. What would you do? ⠀
Click the link our bio for some helpful tips too!⠀

Question: I have been with my company for over a year and I am still on contract – is this normal? I have been working hard, tolerated a lot of things and have done my job. I have come to the realization that I have outgrown my role. I have been looking for a new position but had no responses. What do I need to do at this moment to make myself marketable on the job front and to better myself? How can I be able to come to work without feeling crabby or negative despite knowing that I have outgrown my role?⠀

Answer: "If you’ve asked your current company about opportunities to move into a permanent role, and the answer was vague or unpromising, it’s most likely time to begin your job search elsewhere."⠀

SAVE THE DATE: Tune in tomorrow at 4PM EST for our Facebook Live with Tarana Burke. women's rights and access advocate, who started the #MeToo movement over a decade ago. Post a question below and we will definitely ask about it during our Facebook chat. “I deeply believe that if we don’t quickly invest in the next generation that we’ll be in the same space in a few years,” Burke said. “My hope is that in fifty years, we’ll have a generation that has grown up their whole lives hearing about consent and boundaries—about humanity and dignity. That’s the way we have a shift in our culture.”
Read our feature on Tarana and the origins of this movement via the link in our bio! See you tomorrow on Facebook at 4pm! #blackgirlmagic #womenhelpingwomen #metoo #womensrights

"Growing up in a small town in the South, I was known in school as “the smart Black girl,” who made straight A’s in every subject. When you’re the only minority in the room, you become keenly aware of the responsibility that comes with it. You are in charge of the paradigm being created, and it is your job to represent well in all situations because, ultimately, it is not about you; it’s about those who come after you." - #VonettaYoung

“Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you so that you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.” .
I wrote an article about @wordsmeetwalls for @birchbox, and in it I talked about authenticity and how important it is when starting a side hustle. I really do feel that as time goes on both with @wordsmeetwalls and other parts of my life that I’m becoming more me with every step. Each project, post, idea stems from a place of authenticity.
.
I remember writing about a year ago that one of the strangest paradoxes of life is that you can’t choose who you are but you do have to choose to be that person. You can’t choose why you might love quotes, film, sustainability, etc. but you do have to choose to live them out authentically. .
Lastly — ( this message is a bit all over the place lol - writing sans coffee) — my birthday was a month or so ago and when talking to a friend about how I felt about getting another year older I said - “Honestly, I like getting older because I feel like I become more me or learn something new about myself every year.”
