For Your Weekend in September

When I hold on to the wrong things, the wrong things hold on to me. May I have the wisdom to carry the essentials and the courage to release the rest.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. Here are a few good reads for along the way:

The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown for The Harvard Business Review // Because sometimes our success at a thing can actually get in the way of what we forgot we always wanted.

Jerry Seinfeld’s Mental Trick for Managing Stress Under Pressure by Patrick Allen for Lifehacker // Because even big TV stars understand the power of smallness.

Moonrise on the Lake by Zelda Williams on Instagram // Because when your Dad is Robin Williams and it’s been a year since he died, you have earned the right to talk about grief. And here, she does so beautifully.

What I Didn’t Expect by Annie F. Downs // Because she went to Israel for the first time and her simple words about it have left a lump in my own throat and I wasn’t even there.

Simply Tuesday discussion with Crystal Paine // If you’ve read Simply Tuesday  already or if you plan to, next week Crystal Paine (Money Saving Mom) will be blogging about one section of the book each week day and sharing more about what she’s learning in her Morning Motivation Show on Periscope. You can find her at MoneySavingMom on there if you’re not already following her. She scopes at around 7 a.m. -ish CT each weekday morning! Thanks Crystal!

3 Ways to Know if Your Soul is Stuck in Hustle by me // Because some things are life-draining and others are life-giving and I’m desperate to know the difference.

P.S. According to my permalink this is my 100th For Your Weekend post. I know I’ve technically written more than that, but this must be the 100th time I’ve titled it “for your weekend.” It’s a joy to write these simple blessings and share my favorite links with you each Saturday. Here’s to 100 more!
