The weekend was here… And I was on vacation! Woohoo :) We went up island and it was awesome, including a run on the beach boardwalk, yummy meals, and chill time on the couch with someone very important to me. Did you know that sometimes you only have to travel a few hours away to feel like you are on a retreat? I feel awesomely relaxed today. I hope you are doing great too <3

One of the best parts of my day is reading your blog posts. I read about so many different topics in various writing styles from people around the world. It’s a privilege that you let readers into your world with your inspiring blog posts. Here are a few that caught my eye over the past week:
A Lasting Marriage
In Tips on Marriage, Jolayemi makes many thought-provoking remarks about success in this type of long-term relationship. He is frank about it being something that takes effort and that couples can reach a breaking point when they compare themselves to others. The wording is sobering in this must-read blog post.
Feel the Love… In Photos
A picture can speak so many words… and AmyRose shows us exactly that with her inspiring blog post Ecstasy. This 8-image post captures a park but really it also captures the heart of AmyRose and readers. The photos show her love of Mother Nature – I feel it as I look at the pictures once again today!
What is Body Dysmorphia?
Body dysmophic disorder or BDD is a mental health issue that gets a quality spotlight from Anna Florczak at A Life In Motion. The notion of wanting to change your appearance because of discontentment with it, in some way, is something many of us can relate to but BDD is a serious condition that really I hope more people learn about. Only then will those suffer with it can get the support they need to heal fully.
The Importance of Persistence
Don’t give up! We hear this time and again but Ben Aquiba puts it into a fresh framework with this post that is titled simply Be Persistent. The formula for success often includes persistence, and a great example is given in Ben’s bird story.
