Good good links #187

Oh hi, yes, I’m still alive. I know I was MIA on here for quite a while and not really active in the remainder of the blog world, either. Can I offer you up a collection of read-worthy posts to  make up for my absence? These are some amazing ones for sure. Once again, I found more than I could include in trying to keep the size of this list manageable and giving every post the chance to shine [aka: be read by at least one person]. Enough rambling here, though. Enjoy your Sunday and these posts!

    Thank you for sharing my link, love. Means a lot.

    I really took a lot from the satisfaction vs fullness article. Its amazing how we can “know” something, and yet reminders like this are consistently important. I’ve been doing work on the very topic so it came at a pretty good time. Also, being paid to travel and/or blog? Oh god could there be a better dream?

    I really enjoyed those tips for bad body image days. I’ve been having more and more of those lately and trying to shift or reframe my focus has really helped. Slowly learning to accept myself at the present moment rather than base it off of the future or past.

    Always fun to read what you have to share!
