Popping in to share what I’ve been into lately!
I also read Notes from a Blue Bike: The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World. I love Tsh at the Art of Simple, but I felt like this book needed a better editor to help tighten it up. Also, I thought her references to expats came across as a bit elitist, but maybe that’s just because I’ve never lived abroad with my crew. :)
I’ve been thinking nonstop about this article claiming biological proof that home is more stressful than the office. Working parents know they can switch projects or try to get on a different team…or even look for something new. But those aren’t exactly strategies we can apply to home life. We can’t trade away our stressors at home. That’s why they say many working women feel relief when they go to work. As a SAHM (well, technically a WAHM), I found this comforting. My frequent cortisol spikes are normal!
Colbie Caillat’s Try video. Have you seen it? A great message about focusing on who you want to be. (Authenticity!)

Looking forward to

Getting back into exercise??
A strong finish to the “greatest summer ever!” #18summers
I’ll see you back here soon to talk about more wholehearted living—how to move through shame! (I don’t know that anyone has ever put shame next to an upbeat exclamation mark before, but that just happened!)
