I am so fortunate to be where I am, in a place of professional fulfillment and personal happiness. Here are a few items and products that have helped me along the way, inspire me, and just make me feel really freaking alive.
Life After College, by Jenny Blake – This started it all for me, really figuring out what I wanted, why I wanted it, and how I could pursue it. Just like the description says, it’s a portable life coach, filled with helpful exercises, templates and helpful advice. It’s not just for college grads, either…I think it’s for anyone who’s stuck, no matter your age. It gets to your core values and reminds you of what’s important to YOU.
Make Shit Happen, also by Jenny Blake – An online goal-setting course that doubles as an amazing community of people who want to make their dreams reality. The corresponding e-book, videos and exercises take you through a step-by-step process of making progress on a BSHG – big, scary, hairy, goal – of your choosing. My taking the course was a huge step in developing this blog. Click here to check out and sign up for Make Sh*t Happen.*
The Firestarter Sessions, by Danielle LaPorte – I started, then stopped, then started this book again late this year, and can I just say, holy breakthroughs batman. The writing is eloquent. The worksheets are eye-opening. The best part is Danielle’s personality and experience shining through every page. It’s helped me get clear on how I want to feel for 2013 and beyond
Doniree Walker Writing Prompts* – Saying I look forward to Doniree’s writing prompts every week is an understatement. They’re thought-provoking, helpful and definitely get rid of any case of writer’s block I’m feeling. Such a huge help for someone who’s just starting out and looking to find their voice.
Only72 – An ever-changing, fantastic deal on a collection of digital personal development products. I bought one last summer, and I’ve gotten so much from so many of the offerings. From a simple-but-wonderful cookbook, to a fitness-for-nerds guide with recipes and workout plans, to a fear-crushing travel guide, there’s something for everyone. The products change with every sale, which happens twice per year and lasts 72 hours. Can’t recommend this enough if you’re into learning and being your most fabulous self.
Aside from those, these always help…
Jaunts to New York City.
Brunch with mimosas.
