A couple of days ago, I was asked by @juliakponsford if I'd be willing to curate for Minnow Support. As I have been curating more and more lately for the Natural Medicine community and its sub division Mindful Life and am feeling, overall that I want to focus more on others, this question was an easy one to answer.
So, from now on, starting every Friday, I will be doing a weekly curation.
I'm not 100% sure about the main topic(s) that I will focus on ( Julia asked me if I could curate philosophy / mindfulness themed writing ) but I found it hard to find enough of those on such a short notice.
I will try to make it writing in the inspirational, mindful, philosophical sphere, without having too much of an overlap with my sporadic mindful life curation.
Won't promise that I might not throw in some posts around creativity too, as - like Julia - I breathe creativity each and every day.
My aim is to focus on smaller accounts - where possible new users - sharing quality content. Those who don't seem to receive the attention that I feel they deserve. I tend to like more personal stories - easy to identify with - of people sharing the process of whatever they are doing.
And now without further ado, here's this week's selection:
Here's an excerpt of this beautiful write up on a topic close to my - and probably everyone's - heart:
In times like this, I feel helpless and hopeless. How many times can I call friends, family, and other support for the same issue? It is such a repetitive and tiresome pattern that its retelling feels pointless. It all starts, crescendos, and ends the same way.
All my work is about healing this bullshit. So what gives? All the therapy, meditation, yoga, running, exercise, healthy diet, self-help books, other books, personal development classes - what will help me? And as I feel my most desperate, I am learning something new.
I have no clue why @tantrabanter is still so unnoticed.
I discovered this brand new user a couple of days ago. Although her content seems to be doing pretty well, I still feel like pointing her out, as I can't help but think that she stands out from the crowd, as a creative, and she loves to share the process:
I delegated some HP to her, so she was actually able to interact with other users.
If you're into creativity, especially painting, go ahead and check out her profile.
This was one particular post that I really enjoyed:
And now onto @solcycler
I got into touch with this user recently and I'm blown away by the diversity of his skills. I hope you don't mind reading, believe me he's worth your time. A true teacher!
Here's an excerpt from his intriguing introductory post:
To further my goal to become fully self-sustainable, the last decade I've been training in Survival/Bushcraft, plant identification, mycology, minimal living, ultralite backpacking and acquiring all the gear necessary to live comfortably out of a manageable backpack.

Another guy I got to know on Discord recently. He appeared to be way younger than me and - at a certain point in time - he called me a 'coach'. From that moment onward, I decided that I will try to coach him a little on this platform, whenever he's up for it.
He wrote his introductory post 4 days ago that stayed under the radar. Although he might use many words, his content sure is worth sharing ( I know this by glancing at his wordpress blog that he has been posting on since January 2019).
Here's his introduction.
I will end it here for today with 4 curated users / posts, as I'm a little pressed for time, but I will do my best to come up with 5 brand new ones next Friday.
I hope you enjoyed this read and please make sure to give the above people some virtual love and preferably a follow and / or comment if you like what they share.
See you next week!
