Bye January: 21 Things That Changed Us This Month

You may have noticed our theme at Man Repeller this month was Change. Leandra kicked it off by recommending several ways we could channel our 2016-was-the-worst attitudes into making January the best month ever. One might call that a bit of an uphill battle, political climate all considered, but maybe steep slopes are the ones that inspire the most spirited attitudes. Perhaps now more than ever we need to believe in our power to and the power of change.

Through this lens we covered a lot of ground: womanhood, activism, identity, resolutions and self-improvement. If you find yourself with a free afternoon (just kidding, I know it’s 2 a.m. and you really need to go to bed), scroll around below and see if anything catches your eye. How are you when it comes to changes in yourself, others, the world? Perhaps we touched on something this month that speaks to that relationship.
