August 6th week round-up

Here's some stuff I found this week and thought was cool, or though-provoking.

Note:  This contains some politically-oriented stuff, and my point of view.  While well thought-out comments of any point of view welcome -- as I am quite open-minded -- trolls will be summarily deleted. 

Happiness and compassion

25 Ways to Be Good for Someone Else (Be the Positivity You Want to Feel) -- great suggestions from a variety of people.  My favorite were:
  • Try to accept people with an open mind
  • Give them the space to be.
  • Pay attention to them.
  • Listen to someone without trying to fix their problem.
  • Give a simple well meaning smile.
Life Changes in an Instant -- fellow mommy blogger, Heligirl, who "stopped and smelled the roses" after hearing about another mom's suffering.

The Importance of Tone -- blogger Happiness in this World talks about how we say things is often more important that what we say.  I can so relate with that!!!

7 Simple ways to say no -- Zenhabits helps us figure out the extremely difficult task of telling people no.

Stuff that gets me riled up

Another reason why I fight -- fellow parent blogger, Jesus has two daddies, explains how NOT being able to marry the father of his children has affected him.

Great day in California -- Science based parenting talks about the decision in California to overturn Prop 8.  For now (at least).
