I had a tough week, friends. There was a lot of Parks and Rec watching and yoga-pant wearing and googling of HMTL while cursing. But there were bright spots! Making lots of apple-based desserts, being supported by my amazing friends, walks on bluffs that overlook the city, and an unexpected (and deeply appreciated) flower arrangement. Into every life a little rain must fall, no?
Anyway! Enough with the whining. Links.
How cute is this
A cute idea
to make life more fun – and make you feel pretty.
Have you heard of Buy4

All of the best and the brightest are making fun of everyone else. Being
sarcastic at the speed of light. Wit is a weapon, it’s a fortress, it’s
a precise surgical instrument, it’s a badge of honor.
Having gaps in your resume is
considered undesirable. When people ask you what you’re doing, it is
implicit that “nothing” is not an acceptable answer. Yet your life’s
purpose won’t reveal itself to you when you’re constantly in the midst

Nursing an grudge/wound/excuse? Read this
There are those among us whose trauma is so monumental
that we need to put it in a separate category and grant generous empathy + kindheartedness.
But for the most part? The wounds that we have had in our life are much, much smaller than that. And these wounds are certainly not big enough for you to put the breaks on + stop pursuing your goals, passions + ever developing mojo.
I’m pretty sure this ring
needs to be part of my life.
