Theresa May Announces She Will Resign On 7 June
Theresa May has bowed to intense pressure from her own party and named 7 June as the day she will step aside as Conservative leader, drawing her turbulent three-year premiership to a close. Speaking in Downing Street, May said it had been “the honour of my life” to serve as Britain’s second female prime minister. Her voice breaking, she said she would leave “with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love”. The prime minister listed a series of what she said were her government’s achievements, including tackling the deficit, reducing unemployment and boosting funding for mental health.https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/may/24/theresa-may-steps-down-resigns-tory-leader-conservative-brexit?fbclid=IwAR1K0hgKlPQNoraDOuVSYuIJTQK0bHrbIOf4kXTUbHz3qKinHSobMmclLxM

How do I stay in the now when it feels unbearable
Often, when we talk at Still Water about the elements that helps us to be mindful, practitioners mention being calm and rested and in a natural space such as the the seaside, the mountains, or a garden. When these elements are present, it is easy to be mindful, and our mindfulness is pleasant and nourishing. However, we are not always calm, rested, and in a beautiful natural space. Sometimes our whole being seems dominated by unpleasant mindstates, such as tension, sadness, agitation, self-condemnation, or despair. What then? Just over four year ago, during a Question and Answer session at Plum Village, a practitioner asked a very similar question of Thich Nhat Hanh. “How do I stay in the present moment when it feels unbearable?”https://www.stillwatermpc.org/dharma-topics/staying-in-the-present-moment-when-it-feels-unbearable/

Which Fortnite Skin is better?
There's no point in getting a Victory Royale if you don't have the Fortnite skins to look ridiculous and fabulous for the showboat finale. They can be very expensive, so don't go buying on a whim! https://www.pcgamesn.com/fortnite/fortnite-skins-outfits-gliders-emotes
