“When you don’t need to compare yourself to other people, you gravitate towards things that you instinctively enjoy doing, and you’re good at, and if you just focus on that for a long enough time, then chances are very, very high that you’re going to progress towards mastery anyway, and the fame and the power and the money and everything will come as a byproduct, rather than something that you chase directly in trying to be superior to other people”
I wasn’t a diehard Beyonce fan but I love her new album and video. I am still reeling. I loved this article about it.
I work half time in an office and from home the other half as I pursue freelance work. I related to some of these points of what it’s like to work form home. I’ve started considering my dogs as coworkers.
I’m officiating the wedding of one of my besties and the nerves are starting to get rattled. I borrowed Thich Nhat Hanh’s How to Love from the library and had to stop reading because I didn’t have the means to take notes. It’s an easy, thoughtful, and charming read.
I have so much to catch you guys up on but haven’t had the time or head-space to write it down. Maybe this weekend? Until then, I missed curating my weekly list of things that made me feel things so here’s this week’s list!
Another week has come and gone. What were your highlights? Mine was cooking my first meal in about a week. Chopping and stirring is my meditation. Enjoy this week’s list of links that made me feel things.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have the best weekend. I’m off to go to work and allotting myself a full hour instead of the usual fifteen minutes since I work downtown and the POTUS is in town for SXSW! Hope you enjoy this week’s links that made me feel feelings.
For many women, friends are our primary partners through life; they are the ones who move us into new homes, out of bad relationships, through births and illnesses. Even for women who do marry, this is true at the beginning of our adult lives, and at the end — after divorce or the death of a spouse.
There aren’t any ceremonies to make this official. There aren’t weddings; there aren’t health benefits or domestic partnerships or familial recognition. There has not yet been any satisfying way to recognize the role that we play for one another. But, as so many millions of us stay unmarried for more years, maybe there should be.
I might write a blog post about how being laid off gave me a new approach to life and friendship. For now, I’ll share you this post from Seth Godin and send love and light to my tribe of supportive friends.
Happy Friday! I have today off and six blog posts I need to write, two with a March 1st deadline. So I’ll be spending today and hopefully much of my weekend cranking out blog posts! It’s a good problem to have.
Please enjoy this week’s pieces of the internet that made me feel things.
Happy weekend everyone! I had a good week but sensed it was pretty stressful for some of my loved ones. Wishing relaxing weekends for everyone, especially those who were extra stressed this week. Enjoy this week’s pieces of the internet that made me feel things.
Happy Friday everyone! I’m battling a cold right now. I thought it was just allergies but it bloomed into a gross cold. It’s my all-time favorite holiday this weekend. Sugarface and I are celebrating with a chicken tender taste-off and trying to replicate Cane’s Chicken dipping sauce. I want to make our celebration a pun. Tender Loving Care? Swipe Right on the right Tender? I have a pun sickness.
Enjoy this week’s round up of links that made me feel things!
What women want for Valentine’s Day. I agree with “slight effort” but my favorite gift so far was when Sugarface made me a penguin pop up card with a sweet note inside. I keep it on my nightstand and still read it from time to time.
Happy February everyone! My dogs wish you an early Valentine’s Day. This weekend Sugarface and I are going to a banh mi taste-off and a Superbowl party even though neither of us follow football. How about you?
Here are this week’s pieces of the internet that made me feel things. Enjoy!
So I thought the above brief history on Japan was neat and had this bookmarked to share this week. And when I asked Sugarface if he saw any interesting videos, he coincidentally shared with me the following video. The kids are so cute!
Well done everyone! We finished another week. I hope you you did a bit of relaxing to balance out all that work. I found some awesome links this week that made me feel things. The last video had me chair dancing. Enjoy!
Happy Friday everyone! My week whizzed by again. I like the spirit of Januaries. Fresh starts and making plans and goals are invigorating. This weekend my only priorities are sleep and an oil change with a friend. Yes, we actually made a date to have our oil changes together. How about you? What are you doing?
