{This month: Technology, small steps, documenting your life, and more.}

Hi all,

A few days ago, I finished writing my December Creative Tool Box. It’s about creative rhythms and Paris! I can’t wait to send it out on December 1st! If you enjoy my writing and photography, consider supporting my work.

With that, below are ten happy links that inspired me this month. Have a good day!

1. 'Our minds can be hijacked': the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia by Paul Lewis made me reconsider how I engage in social media (yet again).

2. So good: Technology, peace, and sanity.

3. The smallest thing—a great piece on the power of small steps.

4. Excellent advice via Melissa Hartwig on setting boundaries: “I share what is personal, not what is intimate. This distinction has helped me connect honestly and authentically with you, while keeping my private life private.”

5. One second every day—an interesting TED Talk on capturing tiny beautiful moments.

6. Perfection is the enemy—thanks to this essay I started an Excel document where I track my daily word count.

7. When Your Shitty Health Insurance Doubles in Price—a fantastic essay on health insurance.

8. “Do the good that’s in front of you.” –Sharon Salzberg

9. Books I enjoyed reading this month: Unsubscribe by Jocelyn K. Glei, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, The Four Tendencies by Gretchen Rubin and A Writer’s Paris by Eric Maisel.

10. Girls Inc. launched a beautiful new website! Check it out and consider donating.
