Some of these posts are amazing. Others I thought were complete garbage. Yet, what I am amazed at time and time again, is that my inner critic is not always in cahoots with what you actually read. So thank you for showing up and reading – and giving my inner critic a swift kick in the patoot.
To celebrate the close of 2016, here is a recap of some of your favourite posts:
“… They traveled to Thailand together right before he died. Her pictures of that trip were all of him wearing that motto and it didn’t sit well with her that the last line was “never return.” So she emailed the founder of the company to ask for the inspiration behind the final line. This is what he wrote back…”
“… Him: I was trying to figure out how best to do this. Yet this feels perfect. Because every ordinary day with you is extraordinary.
Me: (all the tears!)
Him: Will you spend forever with me?”
“… It was a plethora of my favourite people all gathered together. In one room. I could hardly believe my eyes.
And then I realized … I got plaaaaaaayed!”
“… I reached out to some of my favourite friends, role models, business owners, and pre-1986’ers to see what their take on the question ‘what would you advise others to ‘accomplish’ by the time they are 30.’ This was the list we created.”
“…My partner acts like a mirror that I look at myself through. I can choose to ignore what I see or I can choose to do something about it.”
“… As I shared my vision in the training, I had a wave of emotion come over me. ‘Oh my word. This IS my life!’It stopped me for a moment as I read it aloud – a slight quiver in my voice.”
“… I looked up at them as the officers denied me entry and told me that I would have to go back to Vancouver to fix the problem. There was a whole lot of disbelief on my face … and even more nervousness. It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.”
“… The common complaint among a lot of people is that they need to ‘find their passion.’
I call bullshit. You already found your passion, you’re just ignoring it.”
