Monday Mindfulness: Your Time, Talent, and Treasure

Regardless of whether or you watch the Oscars, you likely watch a movie every now and then.

What Cate Blanchett said in her acceptance speech has been picked up by news outlets around the world.

You could see it as two time winner chastising a male dominated industry: “who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences.”

Or a call to the rest of us to prove that “Audiences want to see them [female centric films] and in fact, they earn money.”

Cate reminds us that how we spend our money is perhaps as important as where we spend our time.

What industry would you like to see grow? Spend your time, talent and treasure there.

    I didn’t get to watch the Oscars but it appears some of the winners finally had ideas of substance to share. How grand. I think that time, in the end, is more valuable than money. I can’t imagine what I could buy that would grant me a more profound experience than pursuing that which awakens us further. Thank you for this fine blog.

      I love that due to 24 hour media we can get the highlights of the award shows without having to suffer through them ourselves! And yes, realizing that where we spend our money is how we spend our time and vice versa is a power one! Thanks for reading. Blessings to you this Lenten season.
