Good good links #117

Why are introductions so hard to write? Alternative question: Can I just hit publish on this post filled with lots of wise words and inspiration from others without anybody noticing? Okay, that last one is rhethorical. But seriously, does anybody pay much attention to those intros ;)? Either way, I won’t lament on my troubles of writing intros but rather serve up the great posts I happened upon this week right now. Not before thanking you for your opinions on my last post, though. Like I said I was quite nervous to touch on a topic out of my usual spectrum but sharing my thoughts felt so relieving.

Happy reading and happy Sunday!

    Thank you for sharing all these links. I really liked the NY Times one on having an honest conversation about weight. It’s so true! I recently made the decision to throw away my scale because it’s ridiculous how significant that number can seem.
