How often do you passively consume media? I do it a lot. I read what streams down my news feed. This isn’t necessarily bad, but I often find myself reading things that don’t really make a difference in my life (i.e., non-educational/informative info or info that’s the opposite of what I want my life to be about).
That’s why I created the Worth Reading Round-Up. So that I – and others – can consciously consume content that makes us feel empowered and simply feel better at the end of the article than we felt at the beginning.
So here’s the latest edition!

My favorite quote from this article:
“I want to be able to pick up the heavy boxes when I move. I want to be able to carry all my grocery bags to my third-floor apartment in one trip—like my single mom of four kids did. And if I’m ever hanging off the edge of a cliff, I want to be damn certain that I can pull myself up! I’m happy to look beautiful and feminine, as long as being strong, capable, and fierce are included in that definition.” —Emily Saul, co-leader of November Project Boston
