Thought Provoking

The Lesson in an Egg – The Quiet Place
Brokenness into beauty is the tag line here at TIV and this same theme is beautifully covered through something as simple as an egg.  After all, they are only useful once they are broken.

Perspective on Suicide – Eat Think Be Merry
With the tragic death of Robin Williams, the world lost lost a brilliant man whom brought laughter into our lives in so many ways.  But this loss also brought to light the depths that those suffering with depression are faced with.  This post also brings forth a side of suicide that many don’t consider.  It’s not the answer, but it’s also not selfish.

Reverse Bucket List – Route Bliss
Bucket lists are really popular in the blog world (I have one for the summer) but I really enjoyed Route Bliss’ take on making a list.  It’s precious time spent when you can list out all of the things you’ve accomplished in your days on earth.

Like-aholics – Life Lived Beautifully
Do we blame society for our need for seeking approval, the likes, the comments, the shares?  Or is it a struggle deeper than that of what social media has done?

Time Stamp – Lovely Does It
A small reminder to cherish the moment, seize the day, and to take pause and look around at all that your life has been blessed with.

What Saying No Has to do With Compassion – Pray Live Create
Is it that we must set aside our lives in order to be compassionate?  Or can we carry on our day-to-day activities and feel the same way?

What to do When You Don’t Feel Like Writing – A Beautiful Exchange
Every blogger/writer has been there.  You’re stuck and you have no idea what ideas to pursue or there just doesn’t seem to be the creative drive to get words on paper (or the screen).  What’s a girl to do?

Writing to Find Yourself – Allison Vesterfelt
FREE eBook – hollah!  I’m all about free books (uh, who isn’t?) but when I downloaded this one, I had no idea just how gripping it would be on my heart and my writer’s mind.  It’s not a book to help you sell or become a famous author, it’s a book to guide you in being true to yourself and finding who you are through your words.  Go download it!
