Inspire Me: Inspiration + Motivation for your Monday

    August 22, 2016

    8 links for inspiration and motivation
    Monday morning have you feeling down? I thought I’d start a little series called Inspire Me to boost us back up. From time to time I’ll share some of my favorite inspirational links, podcasts, books, documentaries, people, blogs, recipes. Pretty much whatever has me feeling inspired. Hopefully something here will lift you up and inspire you as well.

    Let’s get to my first Inspire Me list.

     This article on multitasking vs. monotasking really spoke to me. Can you do one thing at a time?

    I wrote about this already but I’m just so in love with this podcast series. This one (episode 202) especially got me.

    If you consider yourself a creative, mind the gap and watch this. Thanks to my husband for sending it my way when I needed it most.

    Habits of Champions? Yes, please.

    Who is the “good” mother we’re always referring to? Love this podcast talking about the struggle for mothers between work and family.

    Want party planning inspiration or just to look at a beautiful Instagram feed? My friend Amanda’s blog Let’s Fete is too lovely for words.

    I’ve always been a fan of Sarah Wilson’s blog. Her article about hunting down difficulty really got me thinking.

    This is an older post but one that hasn’t lost its relevance. Shutterbean compiled a list of 12 ways for Keeping Creativity Alive.

    Hope this Inspire Me list gets your wheels turning and your energy going.

    Today’s Makings Of Small Step: I’d love recommendations from you. Please share what’s inspired you lately.
