Quick links that help me feel a little more optimistic about the world

hug wit vigor

Oscar Night leave a bad (Oniony) taste in your mouth? Read, tweet, favorite, and share the Crunk Feminists’ Love Letter to Quvenzhané Wallis.

Want to write a love letter yourself? Check out The Love Letters Project, spearheaded by the luminous Cathy Wasserman.

And speaking of love letters, this article Trish wrote is a loving ode to (many more than) four inspiring people: A Field Guide for Recognizing Millennial Leadership.

Mulled these over and still feeling down? Consider Hannah’s tips for upping your “happiness set point.”

Or, on a very different note, read How to Bring Back the Dead, a beautiful piece my friend Timothy Colman wrote for his dad, and feel grateful for the people you love.

Thanks for supporting my friends (2, 3, 4, and 5 above) and some media-makers I admire (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5).
