Lagniappes For You

A little extra something from me to you.

For her perspective demonstration, Wendy talked with a student named Lindsey about a subject I can’t disclose—not that it matters. If there is one thing that became clear in all this coaching it’s that our problems are mostly the same. We are unhappy at work, or if we’re happy at work, we’re working too much and missing exercise or our hobbies or time with our kids. Our parents are sick or dying, or not sick and dying but their minds are going, or at least driving us crazy. Or if not our parents, then our spouses, our friends, our children. We feel disconnected from the ones we love. We feel listless and uninspired. We know we’d be happier if we ate right, if we meditated, if we called our mothers, but we don’t. We never do.

—from “50,000 Life Coaches Can’t Be Wrong” by Genevieve Smith in the May 2014 Harper’s Magazine.

Was this what it meant to grow up, this vast loneliness?

—from The Emperor’s Children by Claire Messud

Faith vs. None

HART: So what’s the point of getting out of bed in the morning?
COHLE: I tell myself I bear witness; the real answer is obviously it’s my programming. That, and I lack the constitution for suicide.

One of my best friends wanted me to throw this up on the blog, and then to give him credit for it. He’s pretty sure this’ll break the internet. I’m pretty sure he’s wrong.
