Here are this week's five things!
1st) I wrote a piece on worthiness and was looking for a magazine to submit it to when I stumbled upon this website Luna Luna. This is a neat website/publication for women who have embraced the woo.
2nd) This New York Times article "Talking About Failure is Crucial for Growth. Here's How to do it Right" felt like it said all of the things I've tried to say in the past about failure.
3rd) Right now I'm juggling three books, each night I pick a book to read 10 pages or so from (because that's about all I have time for). These are the three I'm juggling
Eating In the Light of The Moon: How women can transform their relationships with food through myths, Metaphors, and storytelling.
A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson
4th) For those hard works out there, I thought you might need this. I could always use this reminder. "Being More Than Being Useful" from On Being Project
5th) This week's Yoke and Abundance Wise Women podcast with Holli Ilderton "On Choosing Joy" inspired me and I hope it will inspire you too.

“I’m Kennedy Briane Currie, born and raised in Greensboro, NC, a believer, aspiring relationship coach, and founder of Herelationship–the networking platform devoted to early-career women looking to grow and incorporate faith into their personal and professional relationships.”
“if I had such an opportunity to pass on wisdom, I’d tell her to stop worrying so much about hurting other people’s feelings and to be true to herself above all else”
“To be yourself and own it with fearless confidence! Never listen to what that kid on the bus had to say to you and never force yourself to do something you never wanted to.”
Trust the process. Every day since those days had a purpose, a deeper meaning. Everything is a stepping stone. Something I still have to remind myself daily.
“Stand up for what you know is right. Read more, pray more, learn more, lay your worries down, and always be kind – even when you don’t want to.”
“sometimes the most beneficial way to love someone is to say no. Both my parents taught me the value of healthy boundaries to protect my energy and creativity and how to be bright and beautiful in a world hell bent on attempting to control our minds and spirits.”
“Everything you need is already within you.” Continue breathing life to the light that is within you. Even when that light goes dim inside of you, you always have the chance to make it brighter, warmer and extend that light to all of those around you.
“I’m so glad you were too stubborn and too curious to quit! I’m so proud of you! “
