1- C had his 1:1 day yesterday!!!!
Because he already saw Spiderman and the Flash and was kind enough to spare me Transformers (I was willing but he was being nice!) — we saw Ruby Gillman: Teenaged Kraken which was basically Turning Red + Little Mermaid mixed with a dash of Frozen. He liked it and definitely enjoyed the popcorn + Reese’s pieces.
Anyway, it was a fun (albeit exhausting) day. 2 down, 1 to go!
2- If you haven’t checked it out, the comment section from yesterday’s post is fascinating. I think many felt gratitude when they performed the $ thought experiment while others identified small luxuries that perhaps they could add now.
3- Almost done with this little business book:
Not planning to give my own two weeks notice, but it was still a useful read for anyone doing freelance/entrepreneurial work. For the most part it solidified what I have already been doing — trying things, focusing on where I feel I can be the most helpful/useful, taking chances, iterating, etc.
4- Podcast rec: 10% Happier: Nutrition Advice for People Who Don’t Want to Go on a Diet with Rachel Hartley. The guest was great, and I thought Dan Harris’ vulnerability and honesty were great. I think I largely practice intuitive eating these days. Am I fully at peace with my body’s appearance? Nope (even though I know there is no objective reason for this). But! I’m overall grateful with what it can do, and sort of at peace with not being at peace, if that makes sense. This probably could be its own post.
5- Let’s just say even though I’ve written some lighthearted posts this week, it has been A WEEK and I feel a bit low (okay, understatement, but we’ll leave it at that). However, I am ready to move on and hopefully have a more relaxing weekend.
