Tag: links of the week

Been a while since I’ve done one of these! Okay, first for the rocking nuggets of jawsome I’ve spotted around the interwebs lately: Cate Bolt. Oh man. I’ve talked about her before on here. This woman just…I don’t even have words. Talk about walking the walk.  This post is so confronting, not that it contains anything graphic, it’s just that her writing about this stuff makes my imagination go places that make me want to bury my head right back in the sand. How to Support an Artist Without Spending a Dime via ScoutieGirl. Amen! I think this train of…

Thank you beautiful peeps for the words of support for the changes that are soon to come. Excoitment! And don’t worry, I promise to spill my personal side for your viewing pleasure from time to time. I’m flattered that you would even think for a moment I wouldn’t. I think you underestimate the depths of my narcissism darlings! So, links this week that I’ve been digging: Why Time Poor Women Need Understanding Friends. Hells to the yes. My friendships have unfortunately taken a pretty big hit in the last little while, especially earlier this year when I was away a…

Cate Bolt never ceases to amaze and inspire me with posts like this. Opening an orphanage in a foreign country to which she had NEVER EVEN BEEN. Seriously. We’ve started supporting Foundation 18 as a result of her sharing her incredible journey. It’s super cheap, only $10 a month. Please go check it out. This “little free library” idea is super cool. I’ll add it to the ‘projects I get inspired by on the internet but never actually do’ file. Donna Heart’s post on her 6-word memoir made me think about what I’d write…hmmm, still not sure. You?! Ha! Sadly…

(PS If you haven’t as yet taken part then please don’t be jealous. I can love you THIIIIIIIIIIS much too! Just click over here.) So I am way out west these school holidays, visiting with my beautiful bestie from high school who lives on a property just out of Meandarra.  “Mean-where-a?” you say. “Mean-takes-7-hours-to-drive-there-a”. Wondrous. So while we are out here, riding 4-wheeler motorbikes in the…

Just for the sake of being honest, I should let you know I’ve been clambering through a rather thick fog of depression lately. No real reason, (well, other than some pretty epic burn-out, I suppose), but that’s the thing about depression: it doesn’t need a “reason” to strike. Which makes you feel even worse for being such a stupid-first-world-problem-kind-of-whinger and thus, the cycle of yuck continues… Anyway, no need for sympathy (no really: I’ve given myself more than my quota in this here pity party, I’m bout to crack open the Poor-Me Pinyada, it’s gonna be awesome) but just wanted…
