I am a voracious reader and every week I come across either a book, online piece or website I want to share with others. I’ve decided to curate these gems and highlight them on Friday. I hope you find these faves as insightful as I do.
- Meet Ida Keeling in At 100, Still Running for Her Life. Her motto is “Get up and do things, even if you don’t feel like it. Sometimes you don’t feel like doing this, that or the other. Do the thing that you don’t like to do first, and get rid of it.” This one minute video is adorable and inspiring.
- I’ve wrestled with “busy” in different stages of my life. In midlife, though, it’s become easier to say no to what doesn’t fulfill me. I had the pleasure of listening to Joshua Becker speak this past week and his post, A Helpful Guide to Becoming Unbusy is a piece with practical tips of learning to identify what means the most to you.
- Are you on Instagram? Add Sim.plethings to your feed. I love how Denisa photographs simple moments. Thanks to my friend, Monisha for pointing this site out to me.

What were some of your favorites this week?
I love that article about Ida Keeling. I started running because my blood pressure would shoot up every now and then. It’s quite low and normal, but stress can really mess with it.
I feel a lot better now. I hope I run until I’m 100.
I loved the clip of her and watched it a few times with my husband and daughter. It does really make you want to embrace the world.
Thank you for the Unbusy and Sim.pleThings links… heading over to read those now!
Hope you liked both sites!
On a day when, without knowing it, I so wanted to hear wisdom about cultivating space in my life, you shared the Unbusy post. Thank you. You are a gift from the heavens. :-)!
Aww, what a sweet and thoughtful thing to say, Lisa. Glad this particular post helped you. xo
You find the best stuff!
Thanks, Nina! I always love your recommendations – Glad you enjoy my faves too.
I had the opportunity (pleasure) of interviewing Joshua Becker a couple years ago when he was on a book tour and so enjoyed him and his story and his passion for his philosophy and mission of helping us live more minimally on the way to living larger lives.
