Last year was one of stark contrasts. Endless comparisons were drawn; how one country dealt with the pandemic vs another, how female leaders faired vs their male counterparts. It was impossible not to compare lifestyles when seeing how various levels of society were affected. When you look around do you compare yourself to those who have more or less? Do you cultivate an attitude of gratitude, finding peace in the present moment or do you strive to excel? When you compare the two, which do you think is better?

We are huge fans of our friend Jeni b and her podcast, this it it actually. This week she is talking about something we love; the impact someone can have on your life. Whether it’s a kind gesture, a work opportunity or just someone who believes in you, the ripple effects can last decades. She talks about four people who made a lasting impression on her and then allows them to pay it forward by sharing someone who made an impact on them. Can you guess who one of her guests was?
Martha – A picture story, documents the life of Martha Cooper, a female pioneer in the world of photography. In the 1970’s she became fascinated with the graffiti movement in New York and dedicated herself to documenting both the art and the artists themselves. She even managed to get a book published but her work went mostly unnoticed. Decades later she discovered that she is now considered an icon in the global art movement and her work has influenced a generation. It’s a great documentary to watch as we continue to find new definitions for what it means to have a successful life.
The Bright Side, is the debut novel by Catherine Bradbury, a Toronto-based journalist and editor. It’s a completely compelling anecdote of one of those hellish years that most of us have experienced, even before Covid. In one year her beloved parents died, her twenty-five-year-old marriage limped to an end, her heavily mortgaged house turned against her, and a promising new romance ended in crushing disappointment. Yet as the title indicates, through all of it she still managed to find a “bright side.” Funny, smart, heart-breaking and completely relatable, we couldn’t put it down.
