Inspiration September 8 >> Life In Limbo

I love this writing advice: “Write to find out what you think, or find the story you need to tell”.

Anyone in the market for business tools or services? I loved reading Sarah’s list of what she uses to run her business.

Liz Gilbert doesn’t stop dropping truth bombs, ever. Her article on the Dreamers is so moving & energizing.

This dance was so fun! But nothing tops Lin-Manuel’s wedding surprise for me.

Yooooo this article is so on point. Amazing advice on budgeting, spending on yourself, and fully fleshed out scripts to use when family members or friends make inappropriate comments. No big surprise, got this gem from the Money & Happy Facebook Group.

I’ve been very into Kesha’s new music this week. I (like many others) was horrified by her legal struggles with her abusive producer, and I think her new stuff shows her soul and her strength. Especially Praying.

This blog is so cool and gets my brain buzzing about things I could do.


I gave myself Monday off for Labour Day, so it’s been a fast week! Lots of work, lots of creative projects, lots of reading (I can’t put this one down). This weekend I’m volunteering at an entrepreneurship conference and spending some time with my Dad’s new puppy! Yay! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.

    Hi Stephanie! Thanks for the links! The writing advice is something I will try and incorporate more in my days, I seem to forget how much it’s important to me. Also Liz Gilbert’s post was truly moving as well as, as you said, energizing. I have nearly stopped going on facebook but her posts and the Money group are some of the few things I miss.
    Hope you had a great time at the entrepeneurship conference (puppy time excellence goes without saying)!

    • Hi Laura – nice to see you pop up in the comments again! That’s great that you’re not going on social media as much, but glad you found a way to log in to read the blog haha ;) The conference was so amazing – I got to hear talks by so many amazing thought leaders for free as a volunteer. And puppy time was excellent indeed. Hope you had a great weekend!

        That experience sounds incredible! :) I did have a pretty good weekend and I just saw I can make it to this month’s Creative Mornings meeting – my first time there! I discovered it from you, so thanks! The topic and speaker seem interesting!
