Happy Links: From the AIDS Lifecycle to Three Questions

Photo by Tammy Strobel

{Every week, I share a roundup of 10 happy links that I think are worth reading, listening to, or scrolling through. I hope you like them, too!}

1. On February 13, 2016, our cousin Aubrey was in a horrible bike accident while training for the 2016 AIDS Lifecycle. Aubrey was recently transferred to an acute physical rehabilitation center in the Bay Area and is making amazing progress as she recovers from the accident. Also, her best friends, Theresa and Chelsea, are going to participate in the AIDS Lifecycle ride to end AIDS and to honor Aubrey. Please consider making a donation to Theresa and Chelsea’s ride. It’s a great cause! If you can’t make a donation, please say a prayer for Aubrey or send her good vibes.

2. Find a Way by Diana Nyad is an incredible memoir because it’s honest and the book inspired me to think deeply about the connection between the mind and body.

3. A fantastic TED Talk by Diana Nyad: Never, ever give up.

4. A lovely reader told me about Bulletproof Coffee. I might try it!

5. Amanda just released a new ebook. I can’t wait to read it! Check out: GRIT: A 30-Day Guidebook to Relentless Discovery for Visual Artists.

6. When Taking Anxiety Medication Is A Revolutionary Act by Tracy Clayton was a powerful personal essay about how she learned to love and take care of herself.

7. I love Cristina Colli’s photos.

8. Yes to this: A Gentle Warrior’s Manifesto to End Busyness.

9. Last weekend, I visited my mom and her crazy dog, Henry, in Red Bluff. The drive to my mom’s house was scary because it was snowy and rainy! I stopped along the way to give my back a break and to look at books. “Experts” say books are dead, but I don’t believe it because the Barnes & Noble in Redding, CA was packed with people. While I was at the bookstore, I purchased the spring edition of Bella Grace and a sweet drawing book called Illustration School: Let’s Draw Happy People by Sachiko Umoto.

10. Last week, I discovered The Three Question Journal. I incorporated the prompts into my daily journaling practice, and I’m feeling much more positive and grateful.

With gratitude,
Tammy
