a collection of links around the internet
that I’ve been loving lately
* table talk: being intentional without being awkward by Kitty, two favorite posts are this one and this one and my favorite quote:
There are two types of people in the world. The first type walks in a room and says, “HERE I AM!”
They say it with their demeanor, body language and their topics of conversation. It’s all about them being noticed, affirmed and their egos being stroked.
The second person walks into a room and says “THERE YOU ARE!”
They are secure. They have all their needs for worth, satisfaction and affirmation met, so they can be self-forgetful and care more about others than themselves.
“I don’t know how you’re gonna face God at the end and say:
‘You put us together, you found us and you made us
and what we decided to do with our marriage was get comfortable.'”
other posts I enjoyed:
* I talk to strangers – this is something my mom has always done and done well, I used to be incredibly embarrassed as a child but now I’m kind of jealous of her ability, it’s something I’m working on getting better at
* Friday night meatballs: how to change your life with pasta – love this whole concept, I see this inspiring some future gatherings
* and I shared about how we try to decorate with items that are beautiful, useful or share a story over on the simple kind of life.
This will be my last weekend links post for the forseeable future, I enjoy them but sometimes things just got to change, and with everything else changing in life, now seems like a good time to change this along with it all. My plan is to start sharing my favorite articles over on my Facebook page, so come join me over there!
