Good good links #25

Whew, it’s been a whirlwind of a day and there are a million thoughts flying around in my head so I’d better keep it short for your sake ;). It’s Sunday and it’s time for some good reading and giving a shout out to some great writers again. One thing I noticed was that – at least for me, does anybody else feel the same? – there was a particular lot of more serious posts in the blog world that really got me thinking this past week. Definitely not a bad thing in my book so if you know of any more or have thoughts on those mentioned here: Let me know your opinion or share the links! There we go!

Enjoy your Sunday!

    I always get so excited when I open these posts and I haven’t read very many of the articles- I don’t know how I missed them!
    The comparison game on instagram (and all social media) is something that really gets to me. That article hit the nail on the head!

    What would I do without these kind of posts!? For one, I would miss out on all these fabulous reads and things to drool over..That peanut butter banana cream pie! Wowza!
    “Calorie Counting, Fat Fears & Trusting Yourself ” – Amy nailed it brilliantly 😀
    And I haven’t told anyone about my blog..not even family; I don’t want to feel restricted in telling things as it is. But that’s just me.

      It’s the same way for me as I mentioned in my comment on Jan’s post: I’d censor myself if I knew family members or friends were reading. For now, I enjoy having my blog as an outlet for my thoughts.
