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 (perhaps with a mint chocolate brownie by Marsha?).
International Women’s Day
There were a lot of posts flying around for International Women’s Day, but the one that caught my attention the most is Andrea‘s which listed the top moments for women in the last year. I have to admit that I had read about most of them, but had forgotten many–this came as a pleasant and needed reminder that although we have a ways to go, we have already come a long way.
Living a Better Life
The posts that captured my attention this week about how to live a better life didn’t really have much of a relationship one with the other. Anna shares ten relatively simple habits she thinks will drastically change your life for the better while Miranda shared some important insights and learns lesson she gained from a great guru: her four year-old.
Life is tough for everyone, and reading about Jordyn‘s struggle with anxiety is both heartbreaking and inspiring. You go, girl–you can do it, so can I, and so can you, dear reader. Speaking of inspiring, Jennifer recently turned 30 and decided to perform 30 random acts of kindness to celebrate the occasion. Imagine if everyone celebrated birthdays like this? And finally, Sarah shared her thoughts on why feeling lonely is OK.
Reading to Survive The Last Weeks of Winter
However beautiful she is, this is the time of the year I kind of want winter to just go away. I survive mainly through book therapy, which means that I am particularly susceptible to notice book related posts. Lauren‘s list of books read in February inspired a few additions to my TBR list, while Zakiya‘s list of signs you are suffering from a book hangover made me chuckle (and identify with).
Food, Food, Food
Two very different posts about food caught my attention this week. Tanja‘s post on ethical veganism made me think about how I can tweak my own diet in order to make it more ethicals. As for the other post, well… If I could, I would always, always have homebaked chocolate chip cookies lying around the house. Next time I bake up a batch, I’ll keep Abby‘s tips on how to bake the perfect cookie in mind.
