Catching My Eye | 8.16.19

What a long week this has been! I didn’t start off on the best foot since I went to bed kind of late on Sunday, but by Wednesday I had kind of given up on waking up for my workouts this week anyways, so I embraced the later nights and “sleeping in” without giving myself too hard of a time. I’ll pick back up next week! I think this type of kindness toward ourselves is so important — we can’t always hit the workouts or complete the self-care exercises, all we can do is our best. That’s what I did this week — my absolute best. I’ve been pouring a lot of myself into my personal relationships, and it’s exactly what I need right now — support, love, and inspiration from the people around me.

Let’s get into what’s been catching my eye this week!

1. This piece on imperfect starts
I feel like a lot of people struggling with starting a new project or hobby. We believe we need the perfect hiking shoes or the perfect camera, but we really don’t. All we need to do is just start.

2. This blanket basket from Target
I got this basket this week, and I’m in love with it. I usually keep my blankets on my bed, but I thought it would be nice to declutter a bit and give those blankets a real home. I love that it can sit right next to my bed, and I can grab a blanket at a moment’s notice without the basket looking weird or clunky in my room. Bonus: It was only $20!

3. This breakdown of true crime books by state
There are few things I love more than books, true crime, and a well-organized list.

4. This call to action for the 2020 election
I can fully admit that before 2016, I wasn’t super concerned with politics. I was still in college, and the problems of politics seemed so far removed from my life. And then everything changed. In this article, Walker talks about how “being political” isn’t really a way of life, it’s just life. The government is involved in everything from the coffee you drink every day (hello, taxes) to your education.

5. This book about grammar
I got this book YEARS ago from an ex-boyfriend, and after letting it collect dust on my nightstand for about 4 years, I am finally reading it. Confessions of a Comma Queen is all about grammar rules and writing style.
