"That's how it works. In each challenging situation, we nudge ourselves to feel a little more courageous, to act a bit more boldly - to step outside the walls of our own fear, anxiety, and powerlessness. To be a bit more present. And incrementally, over time, we end up where we want to be...even if we couldn't have said where that was when we started."

If you are a scarf-wearer and also happen to be a Nasty Woman/Resistor/Planned Parenthood-Earthjustice-ACLU-NDRC Supporter, check out Etsy store StudioQStore (www.etsy.com/shop/studioqstore). These beautiful scarves have a "secret" message in Morse Code and 100% of the profits are donated to the charities listed above.

I bought one for me and one for my mom. Cause she's the nastiest woman I know... ?
