You guys are the best. Really.
Thank you for all of your comments yesterday.
In coaching, there are “gremlins” that we refer to… they are those critical voices in your head that tell you how much you suck, that no one wants to hear what you have to say (because really WHO ARE YOU to say anything interesting/meaningful/worth reading?) and that you are just generally not good enough at anything you do. You might as well quit.
You know these voices well because you have gremlins of your own.
Yesterday, you were like my army of goodness, striking them down and reminding me of what is important and why I keep coming back to connect. I am always blown away by how smart, kind, wise and generous you all are…
On another note, I have been SO moved/inspired by these things lately:
Expecting Adam by Martha Beck. Ali Edwards sent this to me and even though I am only half way through it is already one of my favorite books. I had no idea how funny she is in addition to connecting with the deeply meaningful and magical in life. I am ready to devour every single one of her books.
Crazy Sexy Cancer. Two people mentioned this book/film to me yesterday and I was so moved by the trailer. The film aired on TLC a couple of days ago (I don’t have cable) butI look forward to somehow seeing the entire film soon.
Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith. I am so excited to play with this book by my wonderful friend. The best thing about it is that I don’t have to keep it away from Ben. He can chew and rip to his heart’s content. A true collaboration. (This book is literally dedicated to perfectionists everywhere)
Anna Kuperberg has a new blog that is even more beautiful than her last. I always look through her images before a photoshoot to get inspired. She is truly masterful. Magic seems to unfold right before her.
Boho girl also launched a gorgeous new photo site recently called Boho Photo. She will not only take great photos of you but make you feel like a super sexy beauty in the process. She took some great shots of Ben and me that I adore…
And if you are in the Portland area and need portraits, take a peek at Jen Downer’s beautiful new site: She Saw Things.
