inspiration-driven links, week of 4.30.12

Happy Cinco de Mayo/Derby Day, friends! It’s a unique and good problem to have: mint juleps or margaritas today? Or both? πŸ˜‰ And there’s this thing called the Super Moon tonight, so take a moment to check out our glorious sky.

Sharing a few gems I happened upon this week . . .

10 Things I’ve Learned from Anne Lamott. I’m almost done with Bird by Bird and I’m a better writer because of it. Required reading for anyone who creates.

15 ways to stay married for 15 years. None are cliche; all are wise. It’s compelling and fascinating, and I was this close to printing it out and putting it on my refrigerator.

Did you know that having friends makes you healthier? Such a beautiful truth.

As the season of transition approaches, both the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal tackled the 10 things they don’t tell you at college graduation. Three years later, I’d echo most of them.

When God gives us sweet nothings, it’s because He loves us. Satisfying.

Danielle LaPorte calls us to really see how many blessings we already have. Wish lists, she says, can distract us from what’s already happening in our lives. Oh amen, Danielle. Amen.

You? What’s the best thing you’ve read — or written! — this week?

    • Thanks, Amy! Glad you enjoy this list as much as I enjoy putting it together! πŸ™‚

      I went with both a mint julep and a margarita πŸ™‚

  1. I loooove Bird by Bird. It’s a great one to return to when you need some inspiration or motivation. Oh, and I vote margaritas too πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Melissa! My copy of Bird By Bird is definitely dog-eared and well-worn and much-loved. Like I told Amy, I had a mint julep earlier in the day and a margarita later πŸ™‚
