Leigh linked to a Mashable piece of inspirational TED talks the other day.

I clicked along, thinking ‘yell yeah, I’m totes in the mood for being inspired’, scrolled through the list to pick one vid to get me started.

And found this one by Sheryl Sandberg:

Just, wow. I feel like I completely misunderstood feminism before now. Probably because I did.

I am officially Sheryl Sandberg’s newest fangirl. Her manner just hits me on so many levels and her insights are (at the risk of sounding like an idiot) have revolutionised my thinking.

They’re well worth watching, yo. Even if you only watch a few minutes.

This find is the latest in a huge spark of Light Bulb Moments (see what I did there?) in the last few weeks. I’ve done a complete turnaround since October when I was feeling like I’ve wasted this year. Big Things are on the way; hope I’m hanging on tight.
