My, has time passed since the last Places to Go, People to See, which means that I have a lovely backlog of saved links to pick through. Before I share the goodies, though, I want to share this email that I received from my mum yesterday while I was at Alexandra Franzen’s abbreviated (and lovely) Write Yourself Into Motion workshop, where I was participating, arranging snacks, and taking pictures:
Mom knows you are very busy recently, please do it with your limitation, don’t over stress yourself, if you need help that also other person can do, pls ask [your brother or sister-in-law] to help,
It always a amazing thing that you can set up your business in such short term, but mom wants you to do it with a pleasant heart and passion. Don’t exhausted yourself, ok?
I love u.
Lovely, no? And yes, it’s been a busy, busy week with the end of registration, even though I have been working on recovering from England, fainting, and a cold. However, I’m generally quite happy, and I’ll be sending you off into the remainder of your weekend with these links:
- This post by Fiona about the Redfox Retreat sums up my own experience beautifully.
- Danielle LaPorte’s trust exercise has given me new fodder for my restorative journaling toolbox.
- I am not a runner, but Ashley’s long and lovely read about her running journey, which has taken her to Chicago for a marathon this week, is one of my top picks.
- Tara Gentile knocks it out of the park with a piece about leveraging your weaknesses.
- Like so many other Chinese ladies, I have issues with The Joy Luck Club, but Catherine’s tribute to Auntie Lindo (a great read even if you haven’t read the book or watched the movie) made me cry.
- Although I will likely never dye anything using avocadoes, Rebekka Seale’s post about doing so is full of sweet, sweet eye candy.
Oh, and I’ve got this little class that you might have heard of about restorative journaling — registration closes today at midnight. Check it out, if you haven’t yet; sign up, if you feel that it calls to you. Whether your difficult time is large or small — whether you’re in a smooth patch now, but know that you’ll be back in the trenches eventually — this class is going to be a treasure and a treat. And I want to thank all of you who have signed up, shared it with a friend, tweeted about it, or otherwise made my first launch a relatively smooth experience. I adore you.
For those of you who’ve registered, I’ll see you in class on Monday (information coming to your inboxes soon).
