Are you Really Going to Wait until it Hurts?, by Jennifer Gresham.  [Side note: I seriously think this way about going to the doctor ALL THE TIME.  I need to read this every day until I get new contacts. . . ]

What Success Looks Like at 20, 30, by Penelope Trunk.

Two great posts on owning your anger to change the world:  THIS from Sarah Bessey and THIS from Glennon Melton.

Regular Exercise is Part of your Job, by Ron Friedman.  [Convicting!!]

Learning to Love Criticism, by Tara Mohr.

ALSO:  My friend Caris Adel is writing an excellent 31-days series on walking brave, and I really felt her passion for justice in this post where she teaches her children about structural racism and peer pressure and how important it is to stand up to power with M&Ms.  If I were going to be homeschooled, I’d want her to be my teacher.

Five [Awesome] Things I Read This Week, 10.10.2014
  • How in the world did I consider my life complete before I knew how to put Ryan Gosling’s face on a cake? I wish I had a cake on which I could put his face right now. Actually, I just want cake. But even better if it looks like Ryan Gosling.

    • I know I’m still a week behind on those noodles, but I think a faces of history cake-off would be an excellent addition to Instagram. Maybe around President’s Day?!?!?!

  • Thanks so much for linking to my blog! I can’t wait to catch up on your 31 days posts. 🙂

    • Hey, thanks for being awesome! And — I didn’t know you were in Nashville! That’s where I am from.

  • Loved every one of these, but Ryan Gosling on my cake? winner. Thanks for sharing!

    • I really do want to try that cake-decorating trick. It sounds like a smart way to make cute cakes!

  • How to put Ryan on my cake? SWOON.

    Have a great weekend!

    • haha right?!?! Thanks, you have a great weekend too!
