The biggest hit of inspiration this week was hands down my first Tuesdays Together meetup with Rising Tide Society here in Toronto. I was meant to go with a friend who had to cancel at the last minute and I almost didn’t go because I was really scared. But I went alone anyways and it ended up being a bit of a breakthrough for me personally. I had been feeling stuck, wanting more connection and energy and inspiring people around me but was trying to think my way to all those things. Instead by going I got not only a night full of inspiration, but also two days later a strategy session and an invitation for a coffee date with an amazing entrepreneur. Long story short, if you have a local chapter: go. It’s so cool.
Pro tip: if you want to send Facebook messages but don’t want to be sucked into the abyss that is scrolling through Facebook, go to Messenger.com. It’s actually that simple!
On a recommendation from one of the aforementioned entrepreneurs, I started using Trello this week and can feel myself falling for it, so to speak. Its capabilities are seemingly endless and so I was warned not to get overwhelmed at first, but I’ve been starting small by just keeping to-do lists and idea lists inside for now. We’ll see how it goes but so far, very good.
What to carry for self-care in your purse: heart-eyes emoji to this whole post.
I particularly liked the Happier podcast this week for its discussions of personality quizzes and book clubs (these are a few of my favourite things!).
I started knitting this blanket this week – isn’t it pretty!? I’m doing it in a dusty rose and cream.
Jess Lively is getting into the topics of energy, flow, and vibration on the show lately and I’m really enjoying it. Yet another perspective to fold into the mishmash of stuff I find inspiring on a daily basis.
I’m feeling really energized and inspired just from spending time around like-minded people who are doing it: running amazing, creative, not-so-small businesses while still being healthy and authentic and mindful. It makes me want to take my game up a hundred levels in all the areas of my life. I have a lot to digest this weekend! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.
