September is slowing down & sustainable action
Don't try to do it all! Pick one topic and build upon what you learned each year.
I did it! I made you a September Toolkit!
:: very proud of this ordinary thing ::
Sometimes you have to celebrate the small stuff… like getting out of bed in the morning and completing the basic foundations of your job.
You only have to read one book to change the world. Grab a curious kiddo & let’s get started.
In keeping with this month’s theme of slowing down & pacing ourselves…
Enjoy these free phone papers,* which I made for the Luminary Braintrust members who support my work - especially those of you who find yourselves picking up more battles than you probably should.
They come in especially handy when you’re feeling obligated to volunteer for PTO taks you don’t have time for, or find yourself working through lunch to cover a co-worker’s failure to plan.
*Hoping you can download them here. This is my first time using a gallery feature in an email!
How the Luminary Braintrust help you navigate this month’s parenting & advocacy challenges?
What support looks like for me is: Your advice and insight.
As I work to build something worth supporting - what are you looking for in a support community?
Coming up next…
I’ll be back in a couple weeks with new Quick Actions for September.
MEANWHILE - Save the Date for October 18th, 2pm ET / 11am PT, for a quick decolonized parenting workshop led by me and Nat V. of Come Back To Care. Registration details coming later.
(It’s gonna be amaaazing!)
Together in cahoots with you,
PS: Have you read the latest from Cerebellum? “Dads Leave: An essay that gets more positive as you go, I promise.”
PPPS: We’re 46% of the way to our monthly fundraising goal to make this work sustainable. (I know that’s lower than last month’s 63%, but folks are struggling to afford basics and we lost 6 supporters this month.)
