I've been having a bit of a meh week, which I'm hoping is due to being mentally already on an upcoming vacation.
But in the name of doing a better job focusing on the here-and-now, this set of links is geared towards the self-improvement, self-motivational, and self-empowerment end of things.
Some of the bravest and most open discussions of mental illness I've ever read, from a writer advocating living well with mental illness.
A couple of quick interviews with Danielle Krysa, writer of the blog The Jealous Curator, on battling self-doubt and creative blocks.
Somehow I completely missed the brilliant force that is Brene Brown. I was so glad to run across her amazing Ted Talk on the power of vulnerability via Design*Sponge's website, along with some other excellent inspirational videos.
Have a lovely weekend!
