Is it just me, or is the September light feeling a little…somber? It’s bright but in a gloomish sort of way. For all you Game of Thrones fans, this can only mean Winter Is Coming.
Anyway, despite the somber light, I found some inspiring stuff around the Internet this week:
+Are you watching Katie Couric’s new talk show? I’m a fan. The other day Brene Brown made an appearance on the show to talk about her new book, Daring Greatly. I am a big Brene Brown fan, and her message struck a chord in my heart. Practicing tragedy? I’m the best at that! Foreboding joy? Brene, please, I wrote the book on that! But neither of those things serve me. I’m working my way through Brene’s book, The Gift of Imperfection, and after that Daring Greatly is next on my agenda.
+I’ve pretty much memorized all the songs from my various group exercise classes. For instance, I can’t hear Party Rock on the radio without my body wanting to half stomp. But one of my all-time favorites is a RPM speed track song called Waiting by Dash Berlin. I’ve been listening to this on repeat for days now. So faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. Catchy, no?
+I love Sarah’s Fall To Do List. Need to get me one of those. (Sidenote: Sarah and I are basically turning into the same person. We’ve aquired the same Old Navy heart sweater, Old Navy chambray dress, and Sharpie pens. All because we both have a thing for Ashley and take her up on all her recommendations. Sorry I’m not sorry!)
+Stratejoy (my old blogging stomping ground) launched the new bloggers this week, and Molly (the Stratejoy mastermind) is joining up with the new group and blogging on Wednesdays. I so related to her first post: Can I be a good mom and a good entrepreneur? Oh, Molly. Sing it girl. Let me know if you figure it all out.
Kate and I’ve been going solo all week. So right about now, I’m ready to pull my hair out Britney Spears style. But instead, I’m focusing on Dan’s return, catching up with a sweet friend, implementing my new stamps from Elise’s shop, and thinking about how I can give myself a perspective shift. What’s on your agenda?
