Every Friday, I post my favourite links, posts, & resources from around the Web. Expect to learn, grow, & be inspired.

1. Screw Robin Hood: New Study Claims Credit Card Rewards Take from the Poor to Give to the Rich: When I paid off my credit card debt earlier this year, it felt like the weight of the world fell of my shoulders. This post explains why.

2. How To Rent An Expensive Apartment For A Budget Price When Traveling: Another outstanding post by the wonderful Wandering Earl. His common-sense, no nonsense approach to travel inspires me every time.

3. Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed: Wow! If you’ve been settling for a job you hate just so that you can maintain your “comfortable” lifestyle, this is your wake up call. Awesome post, well said.

4. Manual for Climbing Mountains: Simple, sweet, and motivational advice from one of my favourite authors—Paulo Coelho.

5. 20 Ways to Create Happiness and Defeat Depression: I absolutely love this feel-good list of ideas to create happiness. Most of the ideas are simple, but have a look at this list when you’re feeling down. You’re guaranteed to find something that will cheer you up.

6. Famous last words: Somewhat sad, somewhat fascinating!

7. Passing the maté cup: Incredible story of one traveler’s journey while stranded in Paraguay. Confirmation that people really are inherently good.

8. Do Solo Female Travelers have it Easier than Guys Traveling Alone?: Great question! Two interesting perspectives. What do you think?

9. 35 Breathtaking Examples of Road: The names says it all, absolutely stunning!

Happy Friday the 13th, loves! I just came out of my minor surgery about an hour ago. Thank you all for the thoughts & prayers. Everything went well. I will be out of commission for a few days so feel free to send love my way! Have a gorgeous weekend.

In love & light,

    The shots of the road really rock … I’m a road warrior so it sings to my heart.
