Two things this week:
I started a new pottery class this week!
My friends and I took an introductory pottery class earlier this year and loved it.
Mostly because it was a good reason to get out of the house on a Tuesday and drink wine, but we were super stoked to have some really pretty pottery at the end of it all!
Our instructor knows what to expect out of us by now: show up with a few glasses of wine in us, set up snacks, take some pictures, pour more wine, and attempt to wedge, center, and throw a reasonable bowl in less than 2 hours.
Throwing pottery on a wheel is harder than it looks, y’all. I managed to get three bowls done last night.
It was a win!
We joked that every craft night has to have a product- you gotta bring something home if you’re getting out of the house consistently on a Tuesday.
It’s all about the product!!
Having a standing date with my girls is also super important.
We love to catch up with each other, learn something new, and then head off to dinner.
Tuesday night makes it a little easier on everyone.
I recently read Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss and let me tell you,
if you want to read one self improvement book this year- read this one.
It’s ridiculously long, but chopped up into short interviews and you can read 5 pages a day and eventually get through it.
If you’re like me, you’ll get sucked in and read more, but still, it takes a while to get through it.
One of the takeaways I LOVED was the practice of spending 5-10 minutes each day praying or hoping (if you’re not religious) for 3 different people’s happiness.
The three people don’t have to be super close to you, or they can be!
These people can be people from your day to day life or people you only keep up with on Facebook or even people you don’t even know (i.e. your neighbor’s mom’s sister who you met once).
The idea is to spend a few minutes on each person, thinking about them and praying for specific things for them.
The most unbelievable thing happens when you wish other people happiness- it brings YOU joy.
You get to start your day ridiculously zen and every.little.thing. doesn’t affect you.
It’s eye opening for sure.
I see you.
I am wishing you happiness and a peaceful heart.
Have the best week! I’m cheering for you! XOXO
