So we’re all different, now what? {Book Review}

------ I am pretty familiar with what I like and how I want things done. I have preferences about almost everything, even if I don't realize it because I think my way is obviously the 'normal' way. But we all do that. It's easy to assume we're thinking the same way when actually our unique … Continue reading So we’re all different, now what? {Book Review}

Whole-list-ical (6.26.17)

  Just a few things that I have found inspiring or motivating lately: Two books: Hit Reset: Revolutionary Yoga for Athletes by Erin Taylor - I have never tried to go through an actual yoga book before - only youtube.

Steady {Five Minute Friday}

I prefer an all or nothing approach. In English 102, I'd procrastinate until the very last for the final draft of each research paper and, sensing I had a problem, even wrote one on procrastination - though I forget my angle. I like to work hard at something briefly and then be done with it. … Continue reading Steady {Five Minute Friday}

Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

Maybe I made it up, but I feel like each of these books was a really interesting way to build understanding around big topics so that we can move forward with more nuance, grace, and empathy. Non-Fiction One: Unity in a … Continue reading Books to Grow Your Empathy (Best of Recently)

What I Learned This Spring

Emily P. Freeman hosts a linkup each season where we can reflect on what we learned, lighthearted and otherwise.  So here's mine:  consigning through thredup isn't necessarily worth it if you thrifted all your clothes to begin with. However, I have loved it for buying new-to-me clothes!  Related: Money is not really a linear process. … Continue reading What I Learned This Spring

What if? 

  Do you wonder if you could do something? Maybe you should try it. Could you run marathon? Write a book? Bake baklava? Try parkour? Plant a garden? I say no a lot: It's not the right time, I'm busy, It's not for me. With three little kids chatting my ears off and needing all the … Continue reading What if?
