Surround Yourself with Inspiring Beings (Free iPhone Wallpaper + Link Love)


It's been three weeks since my last post here, and while there are medical reasons for my absence, the truth is that I was also feeling blocked.

The beginning of the year was tough- I am shattered by the terrible current events in my birth country (both the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and the anti-Muslim hate crimes that followed make me sick and sad) and in the rest of the world. This is not a political blog, and I don't feel comfortable discussing politics here, but life and feelings and thoughts aren't as easily partitioned as blog topics.



I've been trying to get back to the blog multiple times last week, and failed each time. Yesterday, as I was perusing Pinterest, I came at this quote and this one. And I thought that this might just be my answer: I may be feeling blocked, but nothing prevents me from sharing inspiring posts from other sources- and in a larger way, to surround myself with inspiring beings.

I designed a little iPhone wallpaper as a reminder, that you can download for free below, and also compiled a few of my recent favorite links, that I thought you may enjoy as well. I'm feeling way more inspired already, and happy to be back!

  4. Lovely freebie, and yes what is going on in the would is really disheartening. I have been following the events in france as well as Boko Haram, the riots in the US sparked by Ferguson, etc. and only feel sadness for the lack of unity between people and the hatred that pulses through some people's veins. I am very scared for the future we have ahead of us, but all we can do is try to make this world a better place incrementally, starting with our own happiness and trying to radiate it outwards. This isn't going to prevent a war from happening, but if the percentage of tolerance increases just a little bit exponentially each day, we might have a fighting chance.

    1. Rae, I couldn't agree more with everything you said. I have the same feelings of sadness as you, and I oscillate between fear of the future and hope in humanity. You are right about trying to increase tolerance each day- in the end we have to believe that little streams make mighty rivers.

  10. Hello dear .You put really very helpful information.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
