It’s been another great week of wonderful reads in the blogosphere. My only regret is that I wish I had more time in the day to read. There are some truly amazing writers in the blogosphere and they can take you places and make you think thoughts and feel feeling that you may not have ever have been exposed to if it weren’t for the Internet. Hope you will enjoy these posts as much as I did. If you read any great posts this week, please feel free to leave the link in the comments, as I am always looking for more great reads.
There is beauty in honesty and pain, Jenni from @Mommynanibooboo tugged at my heart and made me cry with her raw recount of her diagnosis of postpartum psychosis in her post Postpartum Psychosis ~Shedding Light on the Demon. Her post exemplifies what blogging is all about – building a community, sharing our stories and finding comfort in the support.
As mothers, there is beauty in pushing ourselves past our comfort zones and pursuing passions and exhausting potential. Sometimes, in facing our fears and sharing our hearts, we can make the biggest difference in not only our own lives but in the lives of the little people who sit by our side with baited breath to know the outcome of our story. Nichole from @NicholeBeaudry demonstrated this perfectly with her piece Mommy, Are You Scared?
There is beauty in laughter. I read a post by Jenny Lawson @theBloggess that had me not only laughing but also literally crying it was so hysterical. I needed this post so badly. It can make any day better. Her post titledÂ Updated x6: Youâ€™re Ruining Nathan Fillion for Me, Nathan Fillion will take your mind on such a wild ride of crazy that it will actually start to make sense to you and by the end, you will be taking photos of yourself with twine and boycotting Castle.
Beauty is definitely in the design. Who knew that you could completely change the very perception of a room by simply using a little bit of tape and paint. I’ve seen some amazing things done to rooms with paint but I would have never thought of whatÂ Design Sponge did to this ceiling. They have completely manipulated the architecture, or at least the perception of the architecture of the ceiling.
Last, but certainly not least, The Sartorialist reminded me that beauty is everywhere. We only need to look. It also reminded me that I really need to up my game because my yoga pants and sweat shirts could truly try harder. Obviously.
