Are you a Facebook Quote Junkie? Or a Self-Help Course connoisseur? It’s time to take all of that good information, and take action in your daily life.

4 Ways to Self-Soothe Instead of Stress Eat.

There are many interesting posts right now breaking the connection between the notions of “healthy” and “thin” – I find this one particularly interesting.

Are you creating your world?

I love this – develop your own Fall Frolic list. Mine definitely includes: baking apple pies, making it up to Maine for a romantic getaway, launching a delicious new ecourse, and tucking into Brene-Brown-filled reading list.

How to Give a Great Compliment.

Heart-breakingly important: When Your Adult Child Doesn’t Want to Treat Their Eating Disorder.

This week’s required reading: 10 Ways to Get Divinely Down + Dirty with Despair.

I just adored Andrea Scher’s interview with creative superhero, Rachel Cole.

The impossible courage of “I love you, but no…” by Alexandra Franzen is off-the-charts brave + beautiful.

How to make your life (more) awesome this week:

Is there something that you really want to do? A conference? A vacation? A visit with friends?

Block the time out in your calendar.

Decorate the words with enough exclamation points, stars, or colored pencils to truly illustrate your excitement.

When you make a date with yourself, by physically blocking time out in your calendar, you are making a huge promise to follow your own bliss or excitement in making your dreams a reality. You will try harder. You will begin to believe that the impossible is possible.

You will start finding ways to get the ball rolling, instead of coming up with excuse after excuse why it’s never going to happen.

I have blocked out seven – yes SEVEN – gorgeous, fun and thrillingevents between now and September 2013. In doing so, I have made the commitment to myself and to my deepest, most heart-felt dreams to try my best to make it happen.

It may not happen, but, I will tell you this: my dreams feel closer every day.

    Mara, thanks so much for linking to my post! That’s awesome that you’ve blocked out seven events. It’s definitely a great reminder for me to do the same. You’ll have to let us know a few of them. (If you don’t mind, of course.) I’m really curious. :)
