My favorite finds from around the web:

This is what “self-care” REALLY means, because it’s not all salt baths and chocolate cake. “It is making the choice to build a life you don’t need to regularly escape from. And that often takes doing the thing you least want to do.”

Four year ago: The spiritual discipline of the long walk.

Five years ago: Pondering my perfect morning.

    Love the one on self care! Just wrote a toxic friend out of my life, now if I someone could tell me how to stop thinking I did the wrong thing!

      You did the right thing. I had a toxic friend write herself out of my life in 2014 and I didn’t realize how toxic it was until she was gone. It’s hard at first, but now I (mostly) don’t even think about it.

    Just a quick follow up to th post about hair and make up.

    I purchased the L’Oréal blow dry spray and dislike the smell. But daughter doesn’t mind it so she’ll be taking it.

    After you watch a few videos , join Ulta rewards. When you purchase products there, you can try them for 2-3 weeks and still return them if you don’t like them.

    Thank you for the Millions book list. I think this will be the year I tackle at least a dozen books from the list (one from each month).

    Anne, you must have read my mind this week. Every single link on this post was immediately relevant and sharable for me this week. Thank you!

    LOVE the article on self care.

    Btw, have you heard of Lucy Worsley? She’s a historian and head of Historic Royal Palaces in the UK. She’s done a few historical tv programmes and I saw one recently on Jane Austen. Thought you might be interested to see if you can find a copy in the US. Presumably you know she’s buried at Winchester Catherdral (Jane I mean, sorry, dangling modifier?) but if you haven’t read it, look at the story of the man who spent six years underwater shoring up the cathedral, such an amazing story!
