High Five Fridays: Week 1


For this week’s High Five Friday, I mixed up a playlist full of spoken word poetry, quotes and talks.

1.) Jessica Rees’s Joy Jar

Jessica Rees, a cancer warrior. Her legacy will forever be remembered through time. Amidst battling cancer, she never gave up on her dream to spread joy and warmth in the hearts of many people. She always wanted to make a mark in history, and she did. Through Joy Jars, she made a way to inspire other kids to fight their own illnesses, by battling them through the spirit of joy itself.

2.) Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter

A wonder poet. She continues to inspire people with her spoken word poetry. Whether it was for change, for love, or for simply planting seeds of ideas, Sarah Kay uses the play of words and theater to convey her thoughts and relate her soul to the world.

3.) Brene Brown: The Power of Vulnerability

We all have our own piece of shame and insecurities. WIth Brene Brown’s talk on the Power of Vulnerability, everyone will be able to have a better grasp of who we are–of how we see ourselves, and on how we can face life happy by making better choices.

4.) Jefferson Bethke: Why I hate Religion, but love Jesus

Inspires people to truly look at love in a different light. It’s not about a set of rules, established by institutions. It’s not about dictating dogmas, it’s about knowing– sincerely knowing what is true. Defy gravity and know that in this life, it’s not about them or anyone else. It will always  be only about, You and Him.

5.) Sometimes, it’s good to take a breather. 

” To a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” -Lao Tzu

Play it forward. 🙂

Have a great weekend!
