So, I’ve found all this marvelous writing in *other people’s perfect words* while I’m not doing what’s on MY list this morning…
I’m gonna share it, though, so I can close the tabs and get on with the sewing that’s due to deliver Wednesday.
Joss at Crowing Crone: http://crowingcrone.com/2012/10/12/is-it-just-me/#comments ISO more Gentleness in life
Jo Bradshaw at Minestrone Soul: http://www.minestronesoul.com/2012/09/corrinasep12/#comments An interview with Corrina Gordon-Barnes, on “why do we self-sabotage?” and other big (and little) life questions
Corrina Gordon-Barnes at You Inspire ME: http://youinspireme.co.uk/2012/how-to-follow-up-without-being-a-nuisance/ Because I’ve left so much goodness “on the table” over the years, simply for fear of hearing “No”.
Also, it’s where I jumped to Jo’s post from…
David at Raptitude: http://www.raptitude.com/2012/10/why-big-changes-are-SO-big/ David tends to write long posts that touch (brilliantly) on many parts of a question, and I haven’t even finished reading this one yet, but this is HUGE:
“… an interesting discovery about making major changes: any way of living is really just an interdependent network of habits, and when you make a big change a lot of those connections get broken. … After a shift there will be holes in the network at first. You need to put all your habits back together again.”
Ashley Ambirge at The Middle Finger Project: http://www.themiddlefingerproject.org/time-doesnt-get-away-from-you-your-dignity-does-be-somebody-dammit/ and
http://www.themiddlefingerproject.org/calling-bullshit-the-more-you-fear-something-the-more-you-should-do-it-who-came-up-with-this-garbage/ Ash is soooo not afraid to use “cuss words” and “vulgar language” that there probably oughta be a disclaimer here: YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! But her insights are TotallyWorthIt!
And one last wonderful discovery: http://www.bluechicago.com/home.html “Blue Chicago” club at 536 N. Clark St. Chicago. Chicago Blues on a streaming audio loop: my newest sound-wallpaper! Found them via a connection-link at Linked In, of all places!
Bright Monday Blessings to You! Karen
