Lean In…and Listen, part 2

May 6, 2017

Continuing where we left off yesterday, Belinda Luscombe writes in Time —

“In June 2015, a month into her widowhood, after a particularly lousy day, Sandberg posted on Facebook the social media equivalent of Edvard Munch’s Scream.

‘I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice,’ she wrote. ‘You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning. These past 30 days, I have spent many of my moments lost in that void.’

“Suddenly, Superwoman became very human.”

— I’m not going to add anything to this today.

Let’s just let this simmer: ‘I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice,’ [Sandberg] wrote. ‘You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning.’

See you back here tomorrow.
