Peak of the Week- 9-27-17

It is the Peak Of The Week-- it's all downhill from here!!! I returned to New Mexico to a great chill in the air. As I drove up "the hill" to return home, I loved looking at all the beautiful colors in the New Mexico mountains!!

Here are some things that have recently piqued my interest!!!

Blog Post about Grief- Call Your Realtor  - I so understand this post and highly recommend Christina Rasmussen to help with dealing with any type of grief. It is so hard to birth a new life for yourself when all of your surroundings are the same. The summer after R passed away, I completely redid my bedroom. I just needed a physical change in there as a start to my new life.

9 Things That Make You Unlikeable
I really liked this article because it lists some concrete characteristics and actions that people might find offensive. This list definitely made me do some self-reflection!!
Carl Jung:

I loved this article on Jung's factors for living a happy life. Such great quotes in this article!!

Reading this article featuring Jung, made me think of him and his work. I am fascinated with Carl Jung's work on Synchronicity. Because I have experienced such events, I started studying the ideas of coincidence. I like to also call them "Godwinks", and I highly recommend the books titled Godwinks. Jung studied and came up with the concept of synchronicity, and I can't read enough of his work!!

Here is a post I wrote before I started researching the concept of synchronicity. It was odd happenings in my life like this one that caused me to start searching. This post talks about our cat, Hemingway.

Video on Synchronicity- You can watch this video to understand a bit of Jung's beliefs.


Books to read when you are in a rut
 I have read many of the books on this list, and the ones I haven't read are on my "to read" list!!

11 books all writers should read
If you have any interest in writing, these titles are great to read to hone your craft!! I have set a goal to read all of them. So many books, so little time!!

Let me know if you read or have read any of these books as well as your thoughts on them. I love a good discussion over books!!!

Have a blessed rest of your week!!

I haven't posted regularly in a very long time. I have somewhat lost my voice! Life happens, doesn't it??? I've had some life issues that have silenced me, but I'm slowly digging my way out- I have a post titled "bloody nubs" which is a whole "thing" that the Suze and I have to encourage each other. I'll share it sometime!! Anyway, I had to combine two Peak Of The Week posts because I had been working on them and then didn't feel like posting so some of these links might be a bit old, but they are some that I really enjoyed and wanted to share.

Let's all keep praying for and encouraging each other! I know I can sure always use both!!

A year of saying No- Why is it so hard to say NO? The older I get the more I am learning how, but it is still a difficult battle!!

What Returning Your Shopping Cart Says About You - I really hate driving up to a parking lot and seeing carts out blocking spaces! Since I am a "cart returner", I love hearing what this says!!

Your Online Identity After You Die- What Facebook Has To Say About It - This was something we faced when R died. M didn't want her father's Facebook account to be open to anyone writing on the wall of the account so she had it memorialized. Here is what Facebook says about options. I'm not sure what we will decide in the future. It is such a personal decision.

Travel Apps  -- I hope I remember these for future travel!!
