{This week: censorship, reconciliation, social media, and more.}

Hi all,

Below are 10 happy links that inspired me this week. I hope you enjoy them, too!

1. I loved Alexandra Franzen’s recent essay—On hiding, censorship, and the impossible task of trying to please everybody.

2. Reconciliation—a segment produced by TED Radio Hour—is a powerful podcast. TED speakers talk about how to look past anger, fear, and how to reconcile our differences. Please listen to the show.

3. Another fantastic piece Alexandra Franzen: Why I do not use social media anymore.

4. In 2017, I’ll be using a Hobonichi Techo Planner and Cait’s Mindful Budgeting Planner.

5. Beautiful & sweet: If your star is crooked.

6. Truth: “You don’t need to drink to celebrate.”

7. Cal Newport wrote a thoughtful essay about digital minimalism.

8. An important article about loneliness: How Social Isolation Is Killing Us.

9. Marc Rosenthal wrote an intriguing essay about hygge—Move Over, Marie Kondo: Make Room for the Hygge Hordes. Also, I shared a few essays about the topic last month (see #8).

10.A Simple Year 2017 is open for registration. The course is the brainchild of my friend Courtney Carver—founder of bemorewithless.com and Project 333—and I’m thrilled to be part of A Simple Year 2017. I hope you’ll join the class!
