I was talking with a friend last week about failure. When we dug into it, one of the scariest parts about failure is how its perceived by others. The fall we can handle, people seeing the fall—that’s the hard part.
Happy Friday, all! This weekend marks the first that my husband is officially home for the fall/winter season. We’re celebrating with an overnight truck-camp in the Sawtooths and planning for a longer trip next week.
But first, it’s Friday Digs!
Happy Friday! My husband is in town so we’re looking forward to a weekend of fall outings and fun.
But first…It’s Friday digs.
The last month I’ve been in a bit of a haze—between stress, to-do lists, and too much future tripping, I let my soul-priorities go right out the window.
And you know what happened? Not that much. I still did everything I had to do. I still had accomplishments. I learned things. I got through my days.
Friday, YES. Weekend plans, yes. No need to go on because well—it’s Friday Digs and I’m really digging the digs this week, so let’s get to it.
Happy reading. Happy weekend!
Recently I’ve found myself asking this question — “has something actually happened if another person doesn’t know about it?” Meaning, do I even count it as an experience if I can’t share it with another? Will it live on in my memory if it were never validated by another person’s approval?
The obvious answer is yes, it still counts. But I’m not looking for the answer to that question — I know it’s a silly question. What I’m more interested in is finding out why I feel compelled to ask the question at all.
Happy Friday! If you’ve been following along on insta, you’ve seen that I’ve been on a “quality time” kick this week. I’ve been consciously aware of how I spend my time, and more importantly how I allow myself to spend my time by removing guilt and expectation and instead just experiencing where I am or what I’m doing without the constant nag of “should.”
As you work on creating a life that is aligned there are a few daily practices that help. This week’s mantra focuses on one of those practices: attention. As any mindful maven knows, being present is the she-king of a mindfulness practice, but sometimes simply telling yourself to be present can sometimes not be specific enough. This week, when we give ourselves the intention to pay attention—we’re giving ourselves a specific action to focus on.
