I'm in need of some good thoughts and cheering up today. Fortunately, inspiration abounds in my Google Reader subscription. Here are three of my favorites.
- The always-inspiring Marta wrote a lovely post about her lessons learned at the Alt Summit. Marta reminds us that life is not a competition, that balance is essential and that we should do our own thing and be proud.
- The talented Wendy of Moop wrote this honest and insightful post about how her awesome company got to where it is today. Posts like this are why I love buying handmade and from small businesses; you can actually learn about the people and stories behind the company.
- And a short little post about a gal named P. who decided to make herself happy and traveled to Timbuktu.
So there you have it, a few must-reads for this Friday. This weekend, I'm unplugging from the internet and making more time for other things. Namely, a bit of night-skiing, an overdue hair cut & homemade soup. Next week I'll share a round-up of posts you may have missed over at my Whole Living blog, plus another recipe or two and maybe even a finished sewing project. If you've got any awesome links of inspiration and cheer, do tell!
