What would you rather have: a happy life or a meaningful life?
If you’re like 45 percent of Americans, you are setting New Year’s resolutions with the aim of leading a happier life: One of the most popular, according to Nielsen, is to “enjoy life to the fullest.” In surveys, most people list happiness as their top value, and self-help books and life coaches make up part of a multibillion-dollar industry.
But should happiness really be the only goal that motivates us?

One of the best days after one of the worst
http://n.pr/2iYkCGs
Boston, San Francisco, London, Sydney — D.C.'s massive protest has spawned sister marches in all 50 states and hundreds of cities across seven continents. Here's a glimpse of some of the biggest.

Anonymous Post from a women who didn't support the March:
Don't know the author, but this about sums it up for me:

I am not a "disgrace to women" because I don't support the women's march. I do not feel I am a "second class citizen" because I am a woman. I do not feel my voice is "not heard" because I am a woman. I do not feel I am not provided opportunities in this life or in America because I am a woman. I do not feel that I "don't have control of my body or choices" because I am a woman. I do not feel like I am "not respected or undermined" because I am a woman.

I AM a woman.
I can make my own choices.
I can speak and be heard.
I can VOTE.
I can work if I want.
I control my body.
I can defend myself.
I can defend my family.
There is nothing stopping me to do anything in this world but MYSELF.

I do not blame my circumstances or problems on anything other than my own choices or even that sometimes in life, we don't always get what we want. I take responsibility for myself. I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend. I am not held back in life but only by the walls I choose to not go over which is a personal choice.

If you want to speak, do so. But do not expect for me, a woman, to take you seriously wearing a pink va-jay-jay hat on your head and screaming profanities and bashing men.
If you have beliefs, and speak to me in a kind matter, I will listen. But do not expect for me to change my beliefs to suit yours. Respect goes both ways.

If you want to speak to me about injustice, especially in regards to women, then speak on the real injustices and tragedies that affect women in foreign countries that do not have the opportunity or means to have their voices heard.

Saudi Arabia, women can't drive, no rights and must always be covered.
China and India, infantcide of baby girls.
Afghanistan, unequal education rights.
Democratic Republic of Congo, where rapes are brutal and women are left to die, or HIV infected and left to care for children alone.
Mali, where women can not escape the torture of genital mutilation.
Pakistan, in tribal areas where women are gang raped to pay for men's crime.
Guatemala, the impoverished female underclass of Guatemala faces domestic violence, rape and the second-highest rate of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa. An epidemic of gruesome unsolved murders has left hundreds of women dead, some of their bodies left with hate messages.
Hundreds of thousands of women & children are trafficked and forced into sexual slavery & slave-labor.

THESE are the real injustices we should be marching against & protesting. These are REAL instances of oppression. These are where our voices should to be heard, our energy spent, where we should point our outrage & share our anger.

Those are just a few examples.
So when women get together in AMERICA and whine they don't have equal rights and march in their clean clothes, after eating a hearty breakfast, and the freedom to go where they choose, whenever they choose and with whomever they choose- I find that laughable.
This WOMAN does not support it. 🇺🇸🙌❤️🙅

Copy and paste if you agree** I did.

Obviously it's because billionaires don't do mass transit.

Parking and ridership were lower than for Women’s March and all recent inaugurations.

That new press dude was unbearable to listen to. What was the point of screaming like that? Then not taking any questions...

The last group of people I would piss off is women.http://n.pr/2iYks1A
Less than a day after President Trump's inauguration, protesters are taking to the streets to oppose his policies. Between a rally and a march, they aim to call attention to a broad list of demands.

Great help on a Saturday. I called three places in the Santa Cruz area. Only Rosenthal came through. Would highly recommend.

I wrote much of Enchantment, What the Plus!, and APE at La Tartine. I love that there's lots of parking across the street, there's good Wifi, and there are no VCs eating there. The staff is very nice, and the food is very good. It's as close to the Seine as you can get in Redwood City. :-) It would be nice if there were electric plugs on the east side of the restaurant.
