I was so inspired by how Gayle King perfectly embodied our human ability to hold two opposing ideas in our heads at once in the way she expressed her shock, disappointment, grief, and confusion regarding Charlie Rose. There’s a reason she’s best friends with Oprah – her grace and poise and articulation is astounding.
A simple way to develop more gratitude for your successes and joys in life. I love anything that helps move me out of scarcity and into appreciation.
What a beautiful concept, to write about a single day each year and compile them into a book. I might take a leaf from the author’s book and start this habit myself. I admire the simplicity and dedication.
My thanksgiving is perpetual. I hope yours is too! No other act brings me as much peace and prosperity as the act of practicing gratitude daily.
Would you like a big long list of books you might want to read? I sure did! Check out the NYTimes picks for notable books of 2017 here.
I’ve been using Grammarly as a Chrome extension for a couple of weeks now and have mostly found it helpful (though it is a bit annoying that it prefers American spelling of words like “favourite”). Definitely helps me with fixing grammatical errors on the fly.
I’m currently reading The End of Absence and loving it a lot. There’s something about Michael Harris’s writing that soothes me and reminds me what’s important.
This week has been hectic, to say the least! I knew it would be going into it, and it’s proven me correct. I’ve been helping out with finishing up a space for an interior design company, and it’s been a few days of non-stop go-go-go to get things done. I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend! I need a break and am excited to have one. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.
