Celebrate Love, Good People, and other Links I Love

Every month I gather some of my favorite links, real-life stories, and other items that I’ve seen on social media and share them with you. I hope you find something to make you laugh, smile, or just go awwwww.

GRATITUDE

  • Prompts for 30 Days of Gratitude – I’ve been keeping a gratitude log in my planner for a while now, and it really does make a big difference. It’s one moment of the day where I make the time to stop and really think about how amazing my life is and how fortunate I am in so many ways. If you’ve never tried keeping a gratitude list or journal, this prompt graphic is a neat way to get started. Gratitude logs don’t have to be anything fancy. Just one or two words a day can really help shift perspectives.

Here are some of the latest Links I Love:

Too Funny

Just Beautiful

Love this!

  • The Hot Dog Princess – this was making the social media rounds last month. If you missed it, you have got to check out the hot dog princess. As someone on Twitter said, “In a world full of princesses, dare to be a hot dog.” I love it!
  • Look at this photo for a minute – it’s not just the photo that I love, it’s the writer’s words, including: “To look at this photo and not grasp its significance is to not only succumb to shallow, jaded and isolated thinking, but also to take for granted a level of freedom that is absurdly great in comparison to the utter bleakness in other corners of the world right now.” … “You have the freedom to not only feel love here, but to demonstrate it, celebrate it, sing it and shine it. Don’t squander it.”
  • Prisoners rescue deaf dogs evacuating California fire: ‘We sprung into action’ – There’s always far too much horribleness that comes from these wildfires. It’s beautiful to read how people come together to help, even those most people might not expect to be a part of the solution.

For the Love of Books

  • The Great Library Rescue of Timbuktu – a different type of hero, saving 377,000 books and documents from destruction. I can’t even imagine.
  • Syria’s secret library – this just proves how important books are to people for information, comfort, and connection. And I thought I loved reading to escape a bad day.

It’s Nowhere Near Over

  • 35 million in 35 years – Such a sad anniversary. It’s easy in today’s world to think this isn’t as big of an issue as it used to be, but the numbers don’t lie.
  • An unlikely tool to help women – I have no words for what these women go through. I hope this option helps make a huge difference.

And on a lighter note, have a smile: Adorable Animals

Video I Love: First Time in the Water

A rescued bear after years spent on a bile farm where he was likely kept in a very small cage. His excitement is nothing short of beautiful.
