Kickin’ off Hump Day with Fleetwood Mac and “The Chain” and several of my favorite posts of the week…
Kurt Harden @ Cultural Offering with his post “In Praise of Life.”
Here is the thing about life: From the moment you are ejected out of your mother’s womb, it is coming for you. Life is unrelenting. It is experiential. Smells, sounds, sights and senses constantly bombarding you. A fire hose dousing you every single moment of every single day. At some point we get to decide: Are we going to manage life or are we going to be managed by it. Is this the most basic decision we make? …If I think to the most important decision I have ever made it has been this one: Swim versus tread water. One decision demands thought and action, another buoyancy.

Erin McNaughton @ Analyfe with her post “When You Don’t Know What to Do Next, Buy New Socks.” Erin is 23 years old and a student at the University of Arizona. One word: wow! What promise this young lady has…
I have the tendency to over-think, over-analyze, and get caught up in irrelevant details. When hopeful and engaged, this leads to innovative new ideas and a boost in self-confidence. However, when I feel uncertain or defeated, everything feels wrong and often I let my fear of failure get the best of me. When we become overwhelmed, lose faith in ourselves, or simply don’t know what to do next, I think the key is to take baby steps, to check small tasks off your to-do list, to go buy yourself some practical new socks and set off on your next big adventure. Often one small victory can lead to a succession of others.

Have a great hump day…
