Internet Inspiration – September 13, 2013

^ I’m sure you’ve seen this going around the interwebz, but it’s SO CUTE.

Oh guys, I’m having my website designed, and it’s SO WONDERFUL! I can’t wait to unveil it! Hopefully by the end of the month…

This post is about homeschooling and parenting, but the sentiment is spot-on. Noticing and treating soul fever. “What the author found was that kids in first world countries were exhibiting similar symptoms as kids who have gone through very traumatic situations (natural disasters or war) from a constant level of stress building up.  Soul fever is when this constant stress tips over the top and starts being displayed.”

Loved this post from Seth. “Experience is real. It is our memory and perception of what happened to us, and it’s influenced by our self-told story of the world around us. Experience, though, doesn’t spread nearly as well as the digital record does.”

Two related posts: Are You Too Old and Fat? and The Most Beautiful Woman in the World. “Witnessing beauty fills us with an amazing feeling. But the beauty my culture had conditioned me to appreciate could only be found in magazines, on television, or in national parks at scenic overlooks. I could appreciate the glory of a colorful sunset, but missed the equal glory of an old, dry leaf.”

Fascinating read about Manipulation Triangles. A totally new-to-me theory, and I’m excited to learn more.

I didn’t even know toe-kicks were a thing, but I definitely want mine to be shiny gold and colorful.

I can’t wait to make this tomato soup. My aunt gave me a bunch of tomatoes from her garden, and this seems like an awesome way to savor them.

“I’m not saying we shouldn’t produce or provide valuable service to our society. The idea that I’m toying with currently is what would it look like if the process of produced results or the creation of value provided didn’t feel like work? As in, it was something we totally and completely enjoyed?!” A wonderful post from Christin.

Shockingly Irresponsible Fitspiration Photos. * stands and applauds *

And that post linked to this one, which also deserves a standing ovation. “Everybody on a massage table is beautiful. There are really no exceptions to this rule. At that first long sigh, at that first thought that ‘I can stop hanging on now, I’m safe’ – a luminosity, a glow, begins.”

For the first time in history, a manmade object is leaving our solar system. This is simply amazing.

I really loved this video from Ask Dr. Neha. We’ve all been flaked on or been the flakee, and a lot of these takeaways are useful for many situations where we create or experience disappointment.

I love all these bum-around outfits from Sarah. I’m going through a similar struggle, but for my day job I need to wear workout gear. Slowly but surely I’m figuring out what works.

I think this is an excellent article from Penelope about why she’s on her phone all day long. The comments are pretty great too. Wonderful discussion topic.

Preach it, Alex! “The lesson is that you gave all of your power away to this boy. The lesson is that you always hold onto your power. Next time, you’ll know.”
