Don't know Clubhouse? Download it now - it's a free app in the App Store that's the next big thing.
Clubhouse is a new type of social network based on voice—where people around the world come together to talk, listen and learn from each other in real-
While it was live, we did want to share this out to you all:
"In life, my guiding phrase I always go back to is: Do the next right thing."
Marion's advice on if you're feeling overwhelmed:
"If you pause or 6 breaths in, 6 seconds out, it sounds so simple but it works and it works."
"My kind challenge for the day: My husband helped with this idea, as he was inspired by how much I love to chatter (as he calls it!) with just about anyone (most of the time not knowing the person).
We all have people in our daily lives who help us. And there's at least one of them, whose name we don't know. (Maybe your UPS driver, barista at Starbucks, Instacart delivery person, the list goes on). Introduce yourself and remember their name. This is something I try to do daily, and it drives most in my family crazy, especially my 10-year old, whom I tried to introduce to her crossing guard at her new school on her first day, and she was mortified! His name is Tom."
Our Mission (not in Clubhouse but this is why it's good to read our BLOG! ;) )
Our mission is to inspire others through embroidery.
If you follow us, you see our mission expands into the importance of mental health, self-care, equality and doing all you can in your communities to make the world a better place. In 2020, so much of our society's broken areas were exposed.
I think of the art form in Japan used for cracked, broken pottery with the art of Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery"), also known as kintsukuroi (金繕い, "golden repair"), where broken pieces are filled in with gold or mixtures of colorful metal.
Just like filling in broken pieces with something stronger and something beautiful, we ALL have a responsibility to fill in what's broken mindfully, with color that makes the world a better place.
Do the next right thing, and as we like to say at Cece (doo-pray), color your world with love.
