When I hear about something that is wicked-awesome (yes, wicked-awesome), it’s most often followed by one of my favourite Seinfeld quotes, “That’s gold Jerry! Gold!” For those that know it and also love it, here you are. For those that don’t know the reference…you are welcome.
Now, have I lost you yet? Probably. So let me explain myself.
I’m not spending more time online, but I seem to be spending my time differently and clicking/stumbling upon some amazingly uplifting, thought-provoking and just fun stuff. And if it’s inspiring me, I know there are those out there that will enjoy it as well. I plan on these posts being a reoccurring feature on Feeding Ethan, but I haven’t come up with a title for this potpourri of links yet. A working title is “Links for the Soul” but I do promise it will not be called “Links I Love.”
So with that, I’d like to share my random findings and why they made it here. This first assortment is about loving life, taking risks, doing what you want in life and a couple of laughs tossed in for fun.
- The Risk Not Taken which I found on a relatively new and very cool site called Medium. It’s a story of living extravagantly, capital “D” Decisions, living frugally, life being too short and taking risks.
- Focusing on being happy is not something we allow ourselves to do often enough or at least I don’t. These lucky 13 ways to let go for a move towards daily happiness are good reminders and easy to implement. I need to especially work on #4 and #11!
- Andrew Evans, the National Geographic’s Digital Nomad talks about why he goes back to a place he’s already been rather than exploring a new place. I understand it might be easier for someone who travels for a living. Yet, there is definitely something about familiarity, building relationships and seeing those smiling faces upon your return. Newer isn’t always better, whether it’s in travel or in life.
- I came across this video from Christopher Paul Stelling while typing away at a cafe and totally dug the sound and lyrics. Makes me want to learn the guitar or ukelele.
- And lastly, a sunset from my final 1/2 marathon training run before the SeaWheeze this weekend!
