ten ELEVEN links to share with you today! Usually when I have a ton of links, they seem to have some kind of unifying theme or two…but not much is jumping out at me today other than the fact that they are all AWESOME. Check it out!
On her BareEarth fitness blog, Charlotte shared this AMAZING project called Endangered Species, which aims to save girls from the Pure Unadulterated Suck that is hating your own body. This is so very, VERY needed! Thanks for sharing, Charlotte!
I no longer believe in “writer’s block”.
On Connection Revolution, Kyeli talks about writer’s block…and how it doesn’t exist. I was live on the World-Changing Writers Workshop call when SARK talked about this, and it was a revelation.
Here’s one (with a misleading title) that made me teary: ‘Darth Vader’s’ Mom:We focus on today. No, they don’t actually mean Darth Vader. They mean the little kid who played him in the VW ads. This piece, and the video that goes with it, really made me remember how lucky I am to have my own little monster. (Super last-minute addition: Speaking of weep-inducing posts, have you SEEN this collection of portraits of gay couples just married in New York State?!?! Beautiful!)
Jen Louden blew my mind YET AGAIN with a brilliant post on “What am I meant to do?” and how it’s a totally useless and unproductive question. Yes, you heard me right. It’s got me thinking!
Rachelle Mee-Chapman at Magpie Girl wrote a post about laundry and Taking Notice that had me desperately missing my clothesline.
I promise not to be an ass to myself if it all goes wrong.
Lisa Baldwin at Zen at Play posted an article that helped me a LOT last week (for reasons that will become evident by the end of this week): Failure: there’s really no need to be an ass about it
Here’s an amazing website called Boy Sees Hearts. The title pretty much says it all. It’s beautiful.
I found a photo that Becky Higgins posted on her blog: Time Management Tips (based on videos by Julie Morgenstern). I know you’re not necessarily a mama, or a work-at-home-er, but it’s still a great list. As someone who is trying to be both, it was a fantastic reminder for me.
Each winter thousands of Lakota children huddle up on floors of delapidated trailors alongside elders to brave another freezing night. Within one week I have met over 20 youth who have told me that they have never slept in a bed.
Rachael at Madward Adventures posted about her work with other Re-Member volunteers, building beds for Lakota children. There’s a link that you can click to donate to the project…it only costs $50 to buy a bed for a child, but any amount at all is appreciated. Hint hint.
This week Goddess Leonie launched her Next Big Thing: The World’s Biggest Summit. It’s running in October (and thus is CLEARLY a birthday present for me), and it will feature 100+ of the world’s most inspiring teachers. And it’s free. You can go to the site and register right now! WAHOO!
That’s what leaped off the Net and into my folder this week! If you see anything magical during your online adventures this week, pop back and share it with me!
