Phew! It’s finally Friday. How has your week been? I’ve been riding the struggle bus a little bit, and am fighting off a cold. But I’m determined to power through – at least for the next 24 hours – because I’m going to see John Legend in concert tonight, which I’m so excited about. The rest of my weekend will be pretty low-key: yoga classes, reading, brunching, cleaning my flat etc, etc. What do you have planned?

A Cup of Jo’s Caroline Donofrio is one of my favourite writers, and I loved her essay this week that asked the question “What’s Your Sliding Doors moment?” This passage really jumped out at me:
“As a tarot card reader once told me, when I posed a question about my career, “The bus is definitely coming. The question is, will you get on it?” Is THIS the bus? Have I missed the bus? I’d wonder, at every proverbial turn. Now, I like to think that a bus is always coming, the doors constantly opening and closing before taking off in new directions. Life unfolds like a web, where different moments lead to different paths, all of them intersecting in ways we can’t always understand. Sometimes, the best we can do is wait for the next bus. Or train. Or job. Or whatever. And know that wherever it’s headed is going to be an adventure.”
