In this week’s “Spreading the Word”, I share with you an article that I saw today in my inbox. It spoke to me as it may to many others because it tells about our natural, undeniable, inescapable human fragility. The author offers snippets of wisdom by the philosopher Martha Nussbaum about how to live with our fragile state. I think, we feel most fragile in times of uncertainty or inner conflict. So, hopefully, this short article will offer you some words of encouragement and inspiration to remain a good human being with all the insecurities that it entails.
“To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control.”Nussbaum, from the article (link below)

Keeping up the new “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. Especially now, during our uncertain times, I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned to storytelling when everything else fails. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
