I hope you're looking forward to fun weekend plans, or even better a delicious weekend of no plans! Me, I'm heading to DC for my last on-site weekend for my positive psychology certification class, I present my final project Sunday, Wish me luck! After this weekend I can call myself a positive psychology practitioner (not to be confused with a therapist of any kind).
Grab a cup of coffee, take a break with me, and check out this week's five things I found on the internet.
1) This article by David Sedaris "Why aren't you laughing?" about his mother's addiction left me in quiet tears.
2) With Health and Gratitude, These recipes look fabulous!
4) I'm enjoying this instagram account because it's inspiring me to go camping again @thetentcommandments
5) After writing yesterday's piece "The Power of Unhappiness" I got obsessed with finding the quote I included and didn't know who to credit. The internet is magical because it didn't take much time at all. "Failure is hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you're successful at the wrong thing, the mix of praise and money and opportunity can lock you in forever. -Po Bronson (from the book "What should I do With My Life").
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

“Do it now or forever wish you had. Why wait? Failure is NEVER as bad as regret.”
Today's Meditation is super short and was inspired by my personal reflections over the weekend. You have everything you need, you're already creative, kind, prosperous and abundant, feel it. This is a super short meditation: 5 minutes 18 seconds.
I would tell myself that “you have the power within you, you always have and always will.”
I made a new Spotify play list for you, sharing the books I’m reading and a special mediation. I hope you’ll dig into today’s coffee break with me.
