So maybe you’re all like “Hey, Angela has hardly posted all week, why is she doing this lame Friday Favorites thing instead of giving me something real?”
And then I’m all like, “Listen, it was a crazy week, and no, I didn’t post a ton. But I certainly read a some great content from some awesome people, and even if I didn’t comment I still totally checked it out.”
And then we’re all like, “Yay! Friday Favorites are awesome!”
We need to remember to be thankful every day of our lives. As Amy said in her post this week, we never know when the end will come. Sure, that might sound scary, but why should you let it scare you? That’s something I struggle with all the time, honestly. I just need to remember to live for the now and be happy with what I have right now.
The comparison trap: you’ve heard that before, in jobs, life, etc. It’s especially prevalent in the health and fitness field. We constantly bombard ourselves with “inspiration,” but can we sometimes take that “inspiration” too far? Or maybe we start to question what “healthy” really means? Am I not healthy because I sometimes drink? Am I healthy because I make healthy brownies? Truthfully? We can really only compare ourselves to… ourselves. Both Kaite and Claire gave two great perspectives on what “healthy” means to them as individuals.
Do something that scares you. Often. It will lead to great things. Davida and her post are living proof of that.
Aaaaaand some shameless self-promotion:
I’m in this class right now that I really love. Basically, we are a group of students acting as our own firm for a website that we blog on. My first post went up yesterday! The website contains a mix of general marketing and social media info as well as some Athens-centric posts. We would love for anyone and everyone to check the site out.
And just because I could use a little of this today, here’s a fortune that was in my cookie a few weeks ago:
Question of the Day:
>> What is one of your favorite posts from this week?
>> Any fun plans this weekend? Also, how is it already the weekend?
