More Cool Stuff For Awesome Creative People Like Us

by @thewritermama on October 19, 2015

I know a lot of really cool creative people.

And in addition to all the cool stuff that they create on an ongoing basis, I stumble across a ton more amazingly creative stuff in my daily Internet adventures.

Seriously, not a day goes buy where I don’t hear about or spy really cool stuff that makes me want to squeal with delight.

So, once in a while–maybe even once a week during the holidays–I’m just going to mention a few things. Kind of a best of  everything I’ve gleaned lately. If you like me and my cool stuff I think you may also like some of this cool stuff.

And it feels good to give back to other cool creators. And we should all do it when it’s a genuine impulse.

So here we go again!

Brave Enough by Cheryl Strayed

From the best-selling author of Wild, a collection of quotes–drawn from the wide range of her writings–that capture her wisdom, courage, and outspoken humor, presented in a gift-sized package that’s as irresistible to give as it is to receive.

Around the world, thousands of people have found inspiration in the words of Cheryl Strayed, who in her three prior books and in her “Dear Sugar” columns has shared the twists and trials of her remarkable life. Her honesty, spirit, and ample supply of tough love have enabled many of us, even in the darkest hours, to somehow put one foot in front of the other–and be brave enough.
This book gathers, each on a single page, more than 100 of Strayed’s indelible quotes and thoughts–“mini instruction manuals for the soul” that urge us toward the incredible capacity for love, compassion, forgiveness, and endurance that is within us all.
