My five (ok…six) favorite blogs

In reflecting on some of my favorite blogs, I definitely see a trend! Perhaps my motto in life should be “less is more”.  I like my food to contain less ingredients, I like my bills to be less large, I like my home to have less clutter, I like my parenting style to be less self-judging…

I hope you find some inspiration in the following links!

The idea of minimalism fascinates me.  I am not a full on minimalist by any means; however, I do allow the ideals to influence my life.  I am sentimental…to a degree…I do not hold onto many items from the past.  If it is just going to sit in a box in the basement, I would rather it be recycled, upcycled or otherwise donated to a cause that will get more use out of it.  I love the “getting started” drop down tab as it shows you where to begin reading (if not…jumping in on the home page makes little sense).

These are two separate and different blogs; I am listing them as one as they are linked in my mind.  I eat a vegan and gluten free diet for a variety of reasons.  When I need inspiration, recipes, or validation for my lifestyle, I visit these ladies!  Great recipes regardless of your personal food philosophy.  I think we should all venture out and try new things!

Seriously, this is the most amazing blog. It is HILARIOUS and honest.  The life of a mom, dealing with adoption issues and the QUESTIONS from STRANGERS.  This blog makes me want to start a new blog.  I laugh with her, cry with her, and get frustrated with her.  I cannot tell you how validating it is to read that other parents are dealing with the same craziness that I am!

I am a big fan of Dave Ramsey.  He gets it.  As a whole, our society normalizes debt, credit cards, loans, living beyond your means. I for one, wholly buy into the idea of living BELOW your means.  I would much rather live in a small house and drive and older car if that means that I have less monthly bills and more opportunities to take a vacation! I love his “in your face” and fairly blunt approach.  I need someone to tell me like it is!  He also has street cred as he openly shares his financial blunders which leaves the reader feeling a little bit less alone.

I love this blog!  I am a Dialectical Behavioral Therapist by trade and this is a blog written by a client (not my client) who has learned DBT and is using the skills in real life.  This is a REAL and honest look at how to utilize various skills in realistic settings!  I can use the skills in my life and I can read research and text books all day long; however, learning from another person how DBT skills apply is such a gift.  I truly appreciate the candid writings!

 

Have a great day 🙂
