25 Little Things That Will Ruin Your Day
(including when the elastic from your underwear droops)
We don’t know why they happen. All we know is that we would do anything to avoid them.
Some of our favorites:
• No. 8: People that tuck cigarettes behind their ears.
• No. 15: Keep calm and (insert phrase) posts.
• No. 25: And anything related to Miley Cyrus.

They’re not there to scare you.
They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”
WEEKLY CALL TO ACTION:
Embrace ‘Radical Honesty’
We originally shared this in a Daily Whisper and fell in love with it. The premise is simple:
1) Tell the truth, all the time;
2) Remove the filter between your brain and your mouth.
The movement was founded by a 66-year-old Virginia-based psychotherapist named Brad Blanton. He says everybody would be happier if we just stopped lying. Blanton’s philosophy: If you think it, say it. Confess to your boss your secret plans to start your own company. If you’re having fantasies about your wife’s sister, Blanton says to tell your wife and tell her sister. It’s the only path to authentic relationships. It’s the only way to smash through modernity’s soul-deadening alienation.
Oversharing? No such thing.

The Core Concept: Giving Back in a Unique Way
I firmly believe that “Live the List” could turn into a global movement – encouraging people to temporarily take the emphasis off themselves and help someone else. I feel like this is a completely unique way of giving back.
Feeding the homeless at the shelter and mentoring at-risk kids is important, but so is putting an emphasis on someone else’s hopes and dreams.
While people sleeping on the streets is tragic, so is seeing people going through the motions and not truly living life. While it’s heartbreaking to realize there are hungry and sick people in the world, it’s just as sad to see people living in a haze of complacency and excuses.
