Ruk Digest 12/18


Hello Fellow Rukkers!

Perhaps Succeeding Early In Your Career Is Not Best

Actress Sarah Paulson said that "If my career had turned out like the fantasy I had of what it was going to be, it would never have made me happy. But I couldn't have known that until it didn't happen. I found a success that is so much bigger and deeper and better, and it's because it happened later. If any of what I'm having happen now—the successes—would have happened to me when I was younger, I would have been ruined. Because when you're young, and things come super easily to you, and you have success right out of the gate, you're liable to think that's how it actually works. You start to think you don't need to be fully prepared or committed."

Song of the Week


 Relaxing / Spiritual / Soulful 

On Saturday I went walking around exploring the Shaw neighborhood of DC. I finally ended up at Calabash Tea & Tonic, a place I have been trying to go to for several months now. 

While drinking a heavenly Vanilla Creme & Coconut Infused Black Tea, I heard this song come on in the cafe. 

I was put in a state of zen. 

Listen to this song, maybe drink some hot tea, and try to relax.
