Alter Ego—Week Three—The Theme

We’ve had some fun talking about girl power.
We’ve taken a hard look at our habits.

This week’s our focus is. . . connections.

We grappled with whether or not to make this an actual Alter Ego topic; it feels like we’ve already “covered” it. When I really thought about it, though, we’ve never covered it on purpose; it’s just something that comes up naturally in conversation.

So, this week, let’s look purposefully and thoughtfully at connections.

Who are you connected to?
What connections do you value most?
How do you maintain connections?
How do you build new connections?

The challenge for today. . . share a quote meant to make all of us think about connections.

One entry for a comment

Two entries for a blog post.

Three entries for getting another person to play along (as long as that person lets us know it was you who sent him or her here)

“Only through our connectedness to others can we really know and enhance the self. And only through working on the self can we begin to enhance our connectedness to others.”

-----Harriet Goldhor Lerner

Gandhi said "Be the change that you want to see in the world." I always thought it was a quote about social and political change, but if you think about it, it covers connections as well.

Sandra Day O'Connor:

We don't accomplish anything in this world alone ... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.

My quote for today...
Deborah Farmer - “For women, talk is the glue that holds relationships together; it creates connections between people and a sense of community. For men activities hold relationships together; talk is used to negotiate their position in a group and preserve independence.”
