It’s Wet Wednesday! It’s really pretty wet here in Houston today too; we got some pretty crazy storms today and there have been tornado and flood warnings all day.
Anyway, I have lots of things getting me all worked up today!
Pretty amazing, right? While I generally think that Equinox ads are extremely sexist, I find this one to be kind of amazing. I know it’s gotten quite a bit of criticism, but I actually love it.
And just to be fair, let’s check out the male form with this video…
Ah, the lovely human body!
Reading more. I’ve realized that in order to hit my goal of writing better content, I have to start by reading better content. I’ve been spending about 30 minutes each night reading blogs and articles, trying to go outside of what I’d been reading for the past year so I can discover new content and people that will inspire me. The more thought-provoking articles I read, the more thought-provoking articles I’m inspired to write.
Blogging less. While I’ve certainly been posting on my blog less, I feel like I’ve been writing lot more. I see writing and blogging as two different things. As I’ve been writing more, though, I’m remembering that writing takes a lot more out of me than blogging does. It takes creative energy and focus that is hard to come by after I’ve used a lot of it up at my job already. I’ve also been using it up writing for other outlets; although it means less content here, it’s ultimately been good because I always step up my game when I’m handing my work over to someone else to publish. It’s not that I don’t want to write more here or even blog more; I’d love to. But I simply don’t have the time or brainpower to do it well. Anyway, the reason this is on my list today is because coming to this realization has made me feel so good on so many levels. I’m sure I’ll keep refining what I write and how often I write over the coming months, but I feel like I’ve finally gotten over using I’ve been doing or what I think I should be doing as my guide. And it feels lovely.
And…I have nothing to be bothered about! I’m 99 percent sure this is because I just got home from yoga and I feel all sorts of peaceful right now. I should really write my bothered list around 3 PM when I’m cranky.
What’s on your hot and bothered list this Wet Wednesday?
