Amanda Wachob's incredible painterly tattoos! I once wrote a paper about copyright protection issues surrounding body art and was so inspired by her images. I'm not in the market for a tattoo myself but if I were, this would be it. For more beauty, here's a New York Times Blog article about her, and her Instagram feed. And here's my all-time favorite piece from her:
I’m thinking about timing. And why things happen when they happen -- or don’t happen. So I am turning this beautiful quote over and over in my mind:
"Some things you’re not letting happen right now because the timing isn’t perfect for you. Some you’re not letting happen because you are very aware of where you are. But all things, as they are happening, are happening in perfect order. And if you will relax and begin saying, ‘Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding. And I’m enjoying where I am now, in relationship to where I’m going. Content where I am, and eager for more,’ that is the perfect vibrational stance."
– Abraham Hicks
I even set up a little alert on my phone so that every couple of days, I get a reminder of “Everything in its perfect time. Everything is unfolding.” Side note: I highly recommend hacking the iPhone reminders so they don’t all just say, “remember to buy milk.” I love to set up a few encouraging, uplifting, mini digital high-fives to myself, too!
Have you tried Four Sigmatic's Mushroom Hot Cacao? I think the taste is a bit closer to chocolate-flavored-tea than full on hot cocoa but I think it's delicious. (Does NOT taste like mushrooms!) And bonus: no coffee jitters.
I love the internet trend of re-naming animals. There are a lot of great lists floating around, like this one and this one. Someone even turned the trend into a t-shirt! It was only a matter of time...
