Starcat’s Favorites: Summertime, Summertime

As I write this, it’s less than two weeks until my daughter and her boyfriend come home for a visit. I haven’t seen my dear ElvenTiger since January, so I’m very much looking forward to it!

Although I’ve been missing her, summer has been lots of fun so far. I’ve been swimming a lot, spending some time in my hammock, enjoying cookouts with family, and finally reading Gone With the Wind. I’ve also been working, but I’m doing what I love, so that too is lots of fun. Helping people write their heartfelt books, while also working on my own, is totally my thing!

I hope your summer has brought you lots of joy so far. If it hasn’t, choose something you love to do and make it a priority this weekend!

While you’re lounging on the deck or by the water, here’s some uplifting reading for your day:

I like this alternate take on leap and the net will appear. It’s about “recognizing your role as the co-creator of your life.”

Taking self-love seriously. Right on.

This summer recipe sounds so delicious! I haven’t tried it yet, but it’s on my list.

In despair about some of the horrible stuff going on in the world? Here’s an excellent description of how you can help create a better society. What if you get paralyzed by overwhelm? This article has some ideas. Also, here are some inspired words from Toni Morrison about the role of artists in challenging times.

Here’s a practical and profound way to help our world: donate to charity:water. If nothing else, watch Mike Dooley’s inspiring video about it.

Last but not least: Ooh! Shiny pretties! (My fae self just couldn’t resist).
