Groundhog day with conflicting reports. Another snowstorm. Super Bowl weekend. Yes, it’s February again. I think back to last February and while it was 365 days ago, it feels like it was only 100 days or so ago. I’m working on compiling my “Living 45” list, which will be at least 10 things I hope to do/see/accomplish during my 45th year, which starts on Friday. I will be dedicating separate blog entries this week to both reviewing my 44th year list, and to sharing my 45th list. Keeping in mind that money is very tight and that I’m experiencing a pretty active Lupus flare right now, what is something you suggest for my list? Feel free to comment. In the meantime, here’s some links from the week I thought worthy of sharing…
Who’s in Charge? By Kristine Carlson
US Astronaut To Return to Earth After Bringing Mankind Closer to Mars – Scott Kelly will be returning to Earth on March 3 after a year-long ISS stint. If you haven’t seen his awesome collection of Instagram photos from his ISS mission, check them out here. Truly amazing.
I am not Black. You are not white. – By Prince Ea. Every human being should watch and learn from this video.
To Anyone Who Thinks They Are Falling Behind – by Jamie Varon. Excellent message.
Dani DiPirro’s Find the Good in February – it’s a long and cold winter, and Dani’s trying to change that
An Open Letter to Those Who Are Overwhelmed – by Mark & Angel Life Hack. I had this on my list to share, and it was also on Dani DiPirro’s list this week too!
Moving Beyond Just Dreaming (Taking Inspired Action) – by Sian Richardson (The Girl Who Knows)
Of Course You Can Do It – by Elizabeth Gilbert. And YES, you can! Good advice for me too!
Rob Werner: Lost in Space – Rob was one of my students. He is a very accomplished skateboarder and is pursuing his dream of skating for life while seeing the world. Usually, it’s the student who is inspired by the teacher, but here, the student INSPIRES the teacher. Thank you, Rob!
Until next time,
