I spend a lot of time (probably too much) following blogs, perusing my Google reader, watching videos and TED talks, listening to pod casts and following interesting links on Twitter. I love information and I love to learn. That’s a fact. However, one thing I wish I would do better, is keep track of the informative, funny, inspiring, ridiculous, or even life-changing things I find on the internet.
That’s what brings me to this post and you can expect more like it because I know there’s a lot of crap out there on the ol’ world wide web, and maybe instead of watching the same scary snowman video on YouTube, you’ll enjoy checking out something new from my personal findings. It’s just a little peek into my life. Hope you enjoy! And as always, please drop a comment below on what you like or think about the content.
“As adults we need to learn that there is no right or wrong way to play.” -Charlie Todd
I can never get enough TED talks and this is just one that I especially enjoyed because it was funny but still had a meaning behind it. Check out the video here.
“I still believe in man, in spite of man.” -Elie Wiesel
Recently I started recording Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday series and I’m definitely hooked. Oprah is an amazing interviewer, in my opinion, and always has this beautiful connection with her guests. Super Soul Sunday focuses on everything from religion and spirituality to personal development.
So far, one of my favorite episodes has been with Auschwitz survivor and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Elie Wiesel. He discusses his brush with death as well as many other impactful moments in his life. Do yourself a favor and check out the series (you can watch full episodes online) and especially watch this one with Elie Wiesel.
Susannah Conway’s A Year in Photos
I’ve been reading Susannah’s blog for a little over a year now and I instantly fell in love with her writing style. She writes so conversationally and honestly, yet beautifully. She is also an amazing photographer and admits that most of her photos these days are with her iPhone (same here!). Check out her most recent post, A Year in Photos, to see some of her amazing photography but I recommend you stick around a little while and read some of her other posts. I promise they won’t disappoint!
I had the pleasure of briefly meeting her and attending her breakout session at the World Domination Summit this past July in Portland, and she helped me address my fear of using the f-word on my blog. And I finally started reading her book, This I Know, which I’m already enjoying thoroughly so I’ll be sure to report back on that.
“Remember: if it’s not leaving you feeling fully-alive, it’s not truly living. What will you do with your one, precious life?”-Kate Swoboda
Kate’s take on choosing to experience the holidays the way you want to really struck a chord with me. I’m feeling mentally and physically drained after a non-stop week and a half of driving around, visiting family, hosting in-laws, cooking, cleaning, shopping, sleeping on a fold-out couch, and still working on top of all that. I can really relate to the idea of finding a happy medium and figuring out what works for your life so you can fully enjoy the holidays. What do you think?
“Only One Rule: No Excuses Allowed” -Joel Runyon
If anyone is looking for a little push from someone in the health and exercise department, this might be your guy. I had the pleasure of meeting (and jumping off a bridge with) Joel and when it comes to living a healthy life, in a fun and adventurous way, he’s definitely got it down. He just launched his No Excuse Workout Plan and it’s completely free to download. It’s simple, straight to the point, and doesn’t require a gym.
Thanks for stopping by!
