Here’s something my hubby was so kind in passing on to me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=litXW91UauE&feature=em-share_video_user.

“In this talk, Russell delivers two powerful messages: First, that young girls who dream of being a model should think of it like they would winning Powerball—something to shoot for, but ‘not a career path.’ Second, Russell takes on the tendency to think that life would be better and easier if we were more beautiful. Russell’s response: ‘If you ever think, If I had thinner thighs and shinier hair, wouldn’t I be happier, you just need to meet a group of models. They have the thinnest thighs and the shiniest hair and the coolest clothes and they are the most physically insecure women, probably, on the planet.’”

From Jennefer L:
I just was forwarded this video and it made me think of you. It’s beginning to make the rounds, so it may have crossed your desk already…but it shows the power of thought in the most clear, beautiful way:
Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s. When they felt the relationship was ending, they walked the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa show Marina shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.
This is an actual letter written by a sorority girl from U of Maryland. Break.com had Alison Haislip do a dramatic reading of it. Enjoy!
