Links and Things

Some of my favorite posts these days are those with fun links and reads that make you think. I kept thinking I would make this a weekly post and then I forgot to put links here for a while. So I have a free day, finally. So I'm sharing a few links and things I've read over the past few months that I really enjoyed. At this point, I'm sure many of these links have been well-traveled. 

Don't Date a Girl Who Travels - This is sometimes the kind of person I wish I was. I have that desire to travel and dream deep inside me. But my wish to be financially stable and have a stable relationship hold me back. Deep inside I wonder, what if I could just pack it all up, walk away from everything steady and travel, but the logical side of me knows it won't ever happen. 

If I can't accept you at my my worst - I definitely have mixed feelings about this article. It's true you shouldn't be horrible, especially to one you love and you should work hard to be a better person and not think people should love you just because. But sometimes our horrible parts are irreparable. 

Rob Jones - Rob Jones, ex-Marine and double amputee, road his bike through Leoti in late January. (If that doesn't indicate how long I've been thinking about doing this, I don't know what does.) If you feel so inclined follow the link to learn about his journey across the United States. I actually think he will get to his final destination in California today. Also, feel free to donate to his cause. He's pedaled across America to raise money for veterans. Pretty bad ass if you ask me. 

The Words I'd Like To Hear - I don't wear a lot of make-up, so I really appreciated this article. Make-up, diet pills, whatever don't make you beautiful. I think we all need to be a little more accepting of our own flaws as well as of others. 

Selfie Disorder - This is just intriguing. I often think of young adults as well as high school age kids I know that are constantly taking selfies. It really has me concerned about the generation that we are producing with this trend. I don't know, maybe I'm old fashioned, but it is bothersome. 

There are so many others out there, but these are the ones that made it into my first cut. We'll see if I continue with this post or not.
