Links I love

My favorite finds from around the web:

Fictional and historical heroines who inspire us to be our best selves.

A new page for your bullet journal. “This post is for you if you 1. Love lists 2. Value thoughtful reflection 3. Need a little extra help to keep track of what you’re learning.”

My life in five(ish) bookstores. From Laurie Frankel, author of our MMD Book Club pick This Is How It Always Is.

22 two-letter words to boost your scrabble score. And I thought I could spell …

Favorite instagram:

Doesn’t this just make you happy? (Follow me on instagram @annebogel or on the all-books-all-the-time @whatshouldireadnext.)

On the blog:

One year ago: When you’re living in the wrong movie. “I find it oddly comforting to think that so many times when I’m screwing up in life, maybe it’s not because there’s a gigantic problem with me and what I’m bringing to the table.”

Two years ago: Every ten years you have to remake everything. “Sometimes the pieces rearrange themselves so quietly, so gently, that you don’t even notice until the shape is nearly complete, and you suddenly realize that you are no longer who you knew yourself to be back then.”

Three years ago: The work that makes more of you. Her definition of calling is so lovely it stops me in my tracks every time: “Something’s one’s vocation if it keeps making more of you.”

Four years ago: On letting my face speak what’s in my heart. “When my children used to walk in the room when they were little, I looked at them to see if they had buckled their trousers or if their hair was combed or if their socks were up. . . . You think your affection and your deep love is on display because you’re caring for them. It’s not.”

Five years ago: Quick fashion tip: spend to your weakness. “Sometimes I get lucky. But generally, I give myself permission to spend more money in the areas that give me trouble.”

Have a great weekend!

    Out of curiosity I clicked on the “two and three years ago” blog post links. Not only do they complement each other, but also spoke to me. I agree that there is a pattern of remaking yourself and I am in the midst of that. So, perfect timing for my contemplations. Thanks!!!
