1. I’m more adventurous than I thought. Since I’m not itching to travel, I’ve always thought of myself as a routinized homebody. My adventures haven’t involved globetrotting, but they’ve forever changed me.
2. I need a better system for organizing my jewelry. See Exhibit A, above.
3. In many ways, anonymity should be regarded with gratitude. A friend and I were talking recently about how easy it is to get caught up in blogging numbers. There’s this constant itch for “more” readers. Jon Acuff wrote an insightful piece on this topic, and it’s something that’s been on my mind a lot lately. I’m choosing gratitude that I am unknown by the masses, but deeply known by God and those closest to me.
4. I want to be a TV writer when I grow up. Ever since I’ve gotten hooked on Breaking Bad, I’ve been obsessed with TV writing. The writing for that show is so masterful that it inspires me. I love the idea of collaborating with many writers, which makes TV unique. Generally speaking, I’ve always thought it would be amazing to see something I’ve written translated onscreen. I don’t actually aspire to TV writing, but I’m smitten with the idea.
5. Expensive workout clothes really do make a difference. My dad gave me a credit to his yoga studio’s store and I bought my first pair of Lululemon pants. They are more comfortable and look better than any pants I’ve ever owned. I don’t know that I would buy another pair at full price, but I’m really enjoying them.
6. Fresh flowers are worth every penny. Especially on cold days.
7. The software Scrivener automatically formats your work into the .mobi format that Kindle requires. It does a lot of other useful things, too. I’m using it for the first time to write my ebook on intentionality.
8. The Target dollar section is worth checking out. I usually pass right by, but last week I found these cute notecards and file folders. Love!
