There are so many great blog posts that I get to read during the week that I took a page out of many a bloggers’ book and decided to share a round-up of my favorite ten posts each Friday, which can either be used to make this evening’s commute go by quicker, or to accompany tomorrow morning’s cup of coffee.
Relationships and Parenting
The post that resonated the most with me this week was written by Caroline. She reflects on the capacity that husbands and fathers have to step up to the plate in ways typically not portrayed in day to day conversation or even in the media—where the image of the bumbling, lazy father seems to reign supreme. The caveat? Wives and mothers have to give them the space to do so, letting go of micromanagement and making space for creative alterations.
In another thought-provoking post, Mama Budget writes about the average cost these days of raising a child, which brings about some interesting questions for those of us who want to live a decluttered, frugal life—which is something Delia discussed in the context of poverty in yet another thought-provoking post.
Motherhood has helped DeAnna learn a lot of interesting lessons which she shared in a post this week. One thing it has taught Renée is how to organize Legos which she shared in a post that might come in handy for anyone going through spring cleaning at the moment.
Letting Go and Moving On
Three unrelated posts I came across this week would make for a great reading set for anyone looking to let go and move on ahead in life. Darrian discusses taking a social media detox day, helping her let go of seeing everything through the lens of what could be shared on social media and instead focusing on the moment. This kind of attitude helps readers become ready for Megan’s post on 10 ways to make the most of your life, which sets the path for setting a course for your future self as discussed by Pam.
