Every week on Friday, I share a list of the most interesting and inspiring content I’ve read lately here on my blog. You can expect thoughts on productivity, happiness, balance, spirituality, politics, and more. Subscribe here to get updates. See archives here.
In an exciting confluence of what I do for a living and what I am inspired by (happening way more often these days!), With/out Pretend‘s latest book Happy If You Know It launched in pre-order today! If you’re a person with feelings: check it out.
This episode of Super Soul made my head spin with how good it was. “If this experience were to last forever, what quality would have to emerge for me to have peace of mind?”
Love love love this campaign for #DeviceFreeDinner. Will Ferrell is hilarious, but they’re also sending a powerful message to all of us. We’re kind of addicted, and it’s a big problem.
Are you feeling really angry these days about all the terrible stuff that’s being revealed to have been happening forever and ever? Same. This Ask Polly letter is inspiring, and important, and I plan to revisit it often. It has already been personally very helpful.
Are you deferring your happiness until a future time? My friend Barbara is (re)starting a blog and her first post about how to have a great weekend is so juicy and good.
Winter is coming, you guys, and I’m already feeling not so great about it. Yesterday I could see my breath and my pinkie fingers went numb!!! Loved this list of suggestions for introverts and/or sensitive people to survive the winter blues.
Reminder: the language we use matters. Can we stop with the double standards already? Can we stop sugar-coating the truth? Can we call a spade a spade?
My meditation practice is happily now a consistent one, but I still struggle with it every day and expect that I will struggle with it forever. It’s good to read posts like this one to remind me why it’s important, and why I make time for the quiet each morning (even if I nod off approximately every 7 minutes).
Announcement that I am Michael Harris‘s most recent biggest fan. His book Solitude was such a wonderful paradigm-shifter for me, and I can’t wait to dig into The End of Absence. Such a refreshing thinker!
It has been both a tiring and an energizing week, as so many have been recently. I am excited to take Saturday to do absolutely nothing, and then on Sunday, I am helping Nurture Retreats put on their second Harvest Table Dinner. It’s going to be amazing! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.
