Carousel — 10.01.10 & The Winner Is…!

DenaOctober 1, 2010

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

1. Living a Tolerant Life: I am a huge believer in the live & let live philosophy. It’s nice to engage in friendly conversation & political banter once in awhile, but that’s where I draw the line. I have no desire to communicate with people who actively engage in political arguments, persuasion, and the “I’m right, you’re wrong!” mentality.

This post about living with tolerance gives a voice to what I have been feeling over the past several months. It is a bright light among a sea of darkness, fear, & confusion. I truly believe that in order to achieve peace and well-being for yourself, you have to learn to let others be. Yes!

2. How to Be Confident: Tim Brownson recently shared this brilliant post with his readers. If you’re interested in a process that can move you from nervous to confident, or from uninspired to motivated—it’s a must read. This is just one of the many life-altering processes taken from Tim’s book, How to be Rich and Happy which I read last Winter & highly recommend.

3. 7 things I know about active letting go. (sure beats waiting.): And last, but certainly not least, I positively adore this post from Danielle LaPorte. You probably already know that Danielle is one of the sexiest, wisest female bloggers out there. Her writing has a way of penetrating deep into my soul & this post about letting go is no exception. Go read it, now.

Happy October 1st, loves! I can not believe that I did not post a single Carousel in September. Simply put, life got in the way. September was a gigantic month for me. In September, I:

  • left my job (to pursue my dreams!) after three years
  • traveled to Paris
  • spent a weekend beside the sea with a best friend
  • started a brand new job
  • and began the process of registering myself as a real, live business!

A lot happened. Yes, I am EXHAUSTED—but I am also grateful, full, confident, and thrilled to begin writing the next chapter of this gorgeous adventure titled, My Life.

And on that happy note, I have one more announcement to make. First, thank you—from the depths of my heart—for the love-filled, inspirational comments on my review of The Gifts of Imperfection. I was floored by the beautiful imperfections that you all shared. As promised, I’ve randomly selected a winner to receive my advanced copy. And the winner is…


Cindy—Please email me your address & I’ll get the book in the mail to you. Enjoy!

That’s it for this week. Lots of good stuff coming up the pike from me to you. Keep your eyes peeled.
