[Every Friday, I’ll be sharing my favorite reads from the blogosphere
over the past week. Enjoy!]
I Create My Reality, Thank You Steph
“• If something goes wrong you don’t even blink. You just forge ahead.
• If your first strategy fails, you try 100 more.
• If you feel tired, shut the fuck up, no you don’t.
• If someone tells you you can’t do it, they stop existing to you.
You don’t expect help, you don’t expect pats on the back, you just slap the shit out of the reality until falls to its knees and begs to conform to your exacting standards.”
The Inescapable Truth About Every Book, Guide, or Blog Post You’ll Ever Read [Including This One]
“All the reading in the world won’t do anything until you decide to take action.”
~Joel Runyon at Blog of Impossible Things
(How to Write Epic Shit) Lesson #1: Fear Makes You Tame and Ordinary
“I’ve noticed something about nearly every successful thing I’ve done, and this especially applies to writing. Everything I write or create that becomes popular, or elevates me to a new level has been a little scary to release to the world.”
~Corbett Barr at Think Traffic
Liberate Yourself from Drudgery
“Do a few mug ring marks on the kitchen counters and toothpaste splatters on the bathroom mirror indicate a cluttered, incoherent mind and lifestyle? Absolutely not.
They just show that I have better things to do than clean. I hope you do too.”
~Annabel Candy at Get in the Hot Spot
Why You Secretly Want To Fail (Or Why Sharing Your Creativity is Like the Dream Where You’re Naked)
“I want it all. Is that too much to ask?
I don’t think it is. And neither should you.”
~Susan Finch at Creative Guide to Life
No spend challenges are for wussies
“If you want to lose weight, you don’t stop eating, you eat healthier. If you want to stop spending like a hot mess, you don’t stop spending, you learn to spend responsibly. Why does it have to be all or nothing? Instead of no spend challenges, why can’t we have spend only $50 or spend only $150 challenges?”
~Debt Ninja at Punch Debt in the Face
*Cordelia note: I personally think No Spend Challenges are pretty cool, but Ninja poses an interesting question. Debate amongst yourselves!
