7 life lessons from 2016
I switched planners today, because I’m a nerd like that and I didn’t want to wait until January 1st to start using my beautiful new 2017 Inkwell Press Planner. As I was flipping through my 2016 planner to make sure anything important was transferred over, I found a page in the back that I had titled “Life Lessons,” which I had completely forgotten about, but on which I had written down a few things I had learned throughout the year.
Book Review: Big Magic
This is officially one of my all-time favorite books, even though it just came out late last year. I should divulge that I’m a huge fan of Elizabeth Gilbert. I wasn’t actually blown away by Eat, Pray, Love like a lot of people were — I didn’t read it until it was already a huge phenomenon, and maybe it just didn’t live up to the hype — but then I saw her in person discussing her next book, Committed, and I just loved her message of chasing your joy and being authentic, of not waiting for other people to make you feel fulfilled or happy.
