Good good links #176

Okay, yes, I know what you’re thinking [or at least I think I do]: Hypocrite. What.a.hypocrite.

Hey, at least it’s working in your favour, no?! Yes, I’m aware I said I was putting the good good links to rest. But hey, I said the weekly links [can you tell I’m being defensive/embarrassed?]. Meaning I left the option of bringing them back at all open. Granted, not even I guessed it would be this soon but from the moment I made my decision on I’ve been finding so many share-worthy posts. More than in some of the past weeks combined. Life has a funny way of playing out, no? Either way, yes, I’m back with links and these aren’t even all I found so more link lovin’ posts are to come. Not next week, though. Really not. I have a reputation of keeping my own worth to hold up after all ;).

Happy Sunday!

    Diddo to Ellie. I’m personally glad you let your previous claim slide for the week because you always have my favorite links, and this collection may be one of your finest. So many good gooooood reads.
    “It’s that pleasing others is not the same as helping others.” —— GENIUS.
    “I have to love and trust myself more than anyone else around me. ” —— so need to keep this in my thoughts, especially this year
    That video about beautiful english words!! I’m not surprised you enjoy this one. Wow, I love words. Hence my looooveeee of Shakespearean language. Agh, swoon. I wonder if you could make a similar list with German words?

      You’re always leaving the kindest comments and I appreciate your feedback and suggestions so much.
      It’s a bit embarrassing to say I haven’t read much (anything??) by Shakespeare before but oh do I like words. The British accents made those in the video even more charming. I’ll try to come up with a list of German ones!
