On Love & Loss (Plus Happy Links)

{Every week, I publish a series of inspiring links. Enjoy!}

This weekend, I’m driving to Sacramento, California. My friend’s mama passed away recently and we are celebrating her life on Saturday. I was saddened to hear about her passing. She was incredibly kind, caring, and loved her daughters (and granddaughter) so much. I’m looking forward to seeing my friend this weekend, despite the sad circumstances.

Losing a loved one is never easy. For example, after my step-dad died, I struggled with grief and depression. I still miss my dad and I don’t think that will ever change. However, his death taught me about gratitude, love, and it gave me an intense appreciation for tiny beautiful moments.

I wrote “My Morning View: An iPhone Photography Project about Gratitude, Grief & Good Coffee” to help readers cope with loss by using photography as a tool for healing. This weekend (October 10-13) you can download the PDF and Kindle version for free.

Now onto this week’s happy links . . .

Wise words from Leo about sharing your writing in public.

Good stuff from Shanna on radical acceptance.

"The Source of Creativity,” was an inspiring radio hour.

"The psychological addiction behind Facebook’s success” was a fascinating read.

5 Simple Strategies for When You are Insecure” was a helpful article. Plus, Courtney has a webinar announcement in this essay too!

Be well,

Tammy
