My Favourite Tweets

Twitter is a great space to share ideas fast. In the few months that I have been using it, I have created my own space there to check in for quick inspiration. So today, I thought I would share some of my favourite recent tweets and users that I have regularly followed. They serve as advice, reminders for my goals, sound reasoning, positivity, and more. Click on the twitter handles to see more from these users. If you are sharing inspiration on Twitter, WordPress or elsewhere, I do not want to miss out so leave a link below.

Live Your Values

​It always seemed strange to me that the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.
– John Steinbeck

Call for New Power Posts

For me, the wonder and challenge of the blogging community is the great work out there. There are so many incredible ideas and insights out there to read, savour and ponder. For this very reason, a most beloved feature of mine on this blog is Power Posts. I have wanted to share all the posts that I have enjoyed reading.

Sadly, I only get to check in with my reader feeds about twice a day. Which means that I am missing out on a lot of enjoyable reads while I am not tuned in. If you wrote or read an especially spectacular post, I don’t want to miss it! I invite you to leave a mark of the noticeable post on my newly launched Facebook page. Like/follow if you please.

A selection of the links’ reading trail you leave for me will be featured in weekly Power Posts on this blog. I look forward to staying better caught up on your work.

The only criteria for posts: show us how you learn from, love, and live life.

Lessons from a Stormy August

My last post was on August 4 so I have drifted from my personal goal of 2 posts a week. It has absolutely been one of the roughest months of my life (with some spill over into September that I am sadly still struggling with). I am hoping to be over these hurdles soon. I decided to be a little optimistic and walk away from these struggles with some reflection and lessons learned. It is easy to come up with motivational talk in my optimistic moments but my challenges, experience, determination, and frustration – the best and worst of me – all come from the worst moments.
