thursday thinks that make me think

i realize it's wednesday but, ya know, this is my blog so i can go wild and write a "thinking thursday" post on a non-thursday if i please. 


have you bought new underwear this year? - this was a must-read for me as it's something i struggle with (hint: it's not really about underwear). this quote in particular spoke to my heart: 

"But—in one of those great paradigms of life—it takes a little work to make time and space for the things that feed our souls, and we have to decide that those things—that we ourselves—are worth the effort."

mother yourself - perhaps i'd do better in the self-care arena if stopped calling it "me time" and started thinking about it as "mothering myself".

"So when you think of it that way, it’s really simple. Take care of yourself the way a mother would. Be tender, be caring, think ahead, and see the whole picture."

burn the candles - a lovely reminder.

"Burn the candles. Not just when people come over. For you, because someone gave them to you. Open the wine and have a glass tonight while you fold laundry. Wear the perfume, the pretty scarf, the whatever that you have tucked in a box, too fancy for you."

kaizen: approach your goals gradually - this concept spoke to me...whatever change it is i'd like to make, the best way to go about it is probably slowly. slow but sure, right? 

"But since habit change should be for the long-haul, it’s worth pursuing methods that produce lasting results."

sell your crap, pay off your debt, do what you love - the tiny house movement calls to me on so many levels!!!!

"There is a massive liberation with this process, a cleansing of the old in preparation for something completely new, a fresh start that so many yearn for."

21 books to read before they hit the big screen in 2015 - i've already read numbers 9, 11, 15, 19, 20 & i cannot lie #5 too. the book i'm most looking forward to reading though is #1. and i want to do so before seeing the oscar-nominated film. 

happy thursday, friends (one day early).
