Celebrating my Mom's birthday with pretty pink and purple freesias from The Bouqs Co. (Use my code for a $10 credit on your first order.) Their selection is insane, and delivery/quality was awesome. Gimme all the flowers please!
Tackling a new month. March sorta flew by in some ways, I can't believe it's April already!
Loving Jess Lively's newest podcast/e-course on Work + Worth! I participated in her study last summer and am thrilled to see her sharing her findings.
Feeling uninspired creatively. Trying to remember that like most things, it comes in waves.
Trying to contain my excitement for the SF Giants season to begin!
Listening to the 'Girls' Vol. 3 soundtrack on Spotify. Perfect writing/feeling music.
Enjoying this article 4 Tips to Help You Write With Clarity and Substance. The promise of "clarity and substance" stood out to me immediately. It's worth a read if you're interested in improving your quality of writing.
Deciding to actually read some of the books piling up on my nightstand. I'm going to try putting them on my coffee table where my TV remote goes, as a constant reminder of my goal to read more throughout the week.
Craving peanut butter on rice cakes.
Digging my growing succulent collection that has congregated on my window sills.
Reading this fantastic article, 'Unhooking from Praise and Criticism' on Design*Sponge. Tara Mohr writes "I noticed as I started working with other women that this wasn’t just my issue: many of us had to go through a process of unhooking from praise and criticism in order to create the careers we wanted for ourselves and do our bravest work. We’ve been socialized to be good girls, to be likable, to not rock the boat. And if we’ve been good student types or high achievers or people-pleasers, we just want lots of embracing reactions to what we put out into the world. This topic — of changing our relationship to praise and criticism — became part of what I wrote about, coached women around, and taught about in my courses."
Happy April and happy weekend, friends! I've got lots of posts just waiting to be published, in the coming weeks. As always, thanks for reading- it means a great deal to me.
