When people starting using #NoFilter to claim their “realness”, it was an alarming sign of how distorted our lives really have become through social media.
In this week’s #Politini episode: Keys to Living a Life with #NoFilter, we got REAL and took a look at how filtering our virtual lives distorts our realities and our happiness.
Is THIS The New Normal?
In this episode of Politini we were joined by leadership and development consultant, Amy Felix-Reece, who Danielle worked with for over two years. Be sure to check out her site and learn more about how she emboldens her clients and helps them to transform their lives .

Polinista of the Week
This week our Polinista is not exactly a person, but a quote Brene Brown used to open up her book, Daring Greatly, by Theodore Roosevelt’s speech Citizenship in a Republic:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
