Sometimes the words flow smoothly from my finger tips. The stars align and everything comes together into a beautiful post or story.
Other times writing is like pulling teeth.
Tonight writing is hard. I have a lot to say and I want to say it. I want to tell you about the things I have been reading about, the things I observed in Jamaica, and the sweeping changes that have been introduced into my life. Instead I’m sitting here struggling to find words.
So today you get a highlights. Over the past few days I’ve come across some things I think you’d enjoy more than the rubbish I would hammer out tonight.
Onto the links!
Lessons in Funemployment — If you missed it, Mike of The Bleacher Seats guest posted for me last week. The three part series had some great insights into unemployment and overcoming the emotions of being unemployeed.
C40X — Brandon has just started “C40x” where he will read the entire new testament in 40 days. It’s ambitious but worth doing once! Check out what he’s already learned from day 1 and 2 and join him if you’ve got a few spare minutes over the next 40 days.
Parents, Dress Your Daughters — This article by LZ Granderson really hits the nail on the head. I could not agree with it more. “That is the purpose of a push-up bra, right? To enhance sex appeal by lifting up, pushing together and basically showcasing the wearer’s breasts. Now, thanks to AF Kids, girls don’t have to wait until high school to feel self-conscious about their, uhm, girls.” (there’s a great follow up video at the top of the page that is worth a quick viewing)
Every Life Has A Story — This amazing video was produced by Chick-Fil-A to “remind us that everyone we interact with is a chance to create a remarkable experience.” It’s worth watching a few times.
Regular posts are back on Tuesday.
