The Friday Five

1.  I just finished reading Amy Poehler’s book “Yes Please”…hilarious!  The Huffington Post made a great list of Amy’s Life Advice from her book.  Some of my favorite nuggets of wisdom include…

  • True love is in the details.
  • Remember that apologizing isn’t about you.
  • Learn to channel shame productively.
  • Don’t be afraid to make a fool of yourself.
  • Beauty isn’t everything.  Find your strength and own it.
  • Own your success.
  • Remember to scare yourself and feel alive.
  • Embrace what turns you on.

2.  Author Elizabeth Gilbert posted about her Happiness Jar on her facebook page.  Each day she takes a scrap of paper and jots down one thing that made her happiest that day.  She puts the paper into her jar.

“It’s not only the pleasure of finding a good moment in each day (for even the horrible days have one least-bad moment) but the lasting benefits of recording that moment forever.
As years go by, whenever I’m having a rough time, I dig through the jar and pull out random slips of paper, and delight in them — all those momentary gems of life that I would have immediately forgotten, had I not jotted them down. They bring infinite comfort.”

3.  Mimi Green Dog Collars.  My puppies have been wearing these collars for a few years now and I love them!  They’re reflective, light weight, and the emergency contact info is engraved onto the buckle.

4.  Eberjey intimates.  I am a huge fan of this line…especially their Gisele line.  Not only is Eberjey beautiful, but they use the softest fabrics.  You’ll feel sexy and comfy at the same time.

  1. I have so many books on my to-read list. I finished Gilbert’s book “Committed” in December and I remember her talking about her happiness jar. It was a pretty good book! I just finished Amanda Palmer’s “The Art of Asking” and loved it even more.

  2. I love the happiness jar idea! I think I will incorporate it into my home and classroom 🙂 Amy Poehler is fantabulous – thanks for the reminder to get that book. I’m pretty sure Kona needs that collar – so stylish while running with mom 😉
    I hope your cranky achilles heals quickly! Have a great weekend!
