40 Ways To Live A Full Life

I usually don’t like posts with lists but this one by Ryan Holiday resonated: 40 Ways To Live A Full Life. Bookmarked.

Fearless Girl by Skylar Yoo

I saw this shirt over on Skylar Yoo and couldn’t help but think this should have been part of my daily uniform for the past two years. I have tackled so many big things in my life headfirst that are absolutely terrifying but once pushed through will change everything. Also, does it come in kids sizes? I think my daughter could use it as well, given she is just about to head into her teen years.
