THESE 3 THINGS 363

363 1. Somewhere, someone is quietly being warmed by the fire of your life, your work, and your love without you knowing. Remember this when you fail.  2. It's nice knowing, more often than not, that we move forward together. This has been essential to me as an artist and independent designer. It's so excruciatingly difficult to make changes concerning my business. It helps beyond words to know that I'm not alone.  3. Holy crap, The West Wing is so good. I had forgotten. I'm just going to close my eyes and wish upon President Bartlett.  What did you learn...

362 1. Understand the distinct differences between ambition, intellectual stimulation, and happiness. They can lead to each other, but are separate. 2. Listen carefully when you use the word until. It usually means you are getting in your own way.  3. Shine brightly when it is your time to shine. When it's not, celebrate the warmth on another's skin. There will always be enough sunshine for all of us to soak in.  What did you learn today? Join me by using the #these3things and commenting below with your own These 3 Things.

361 1. A hammock solves everything. EVERYTHING. 2. At the end there is birth. During my psychotherapist days I learned that when things are coming to a close or ending, a group will almost always start to talk about birth. Whether it is a quite literal discussion, or a sudden blossoming of new projects or ideas, we have a need to move as quickly as possible away from endings and fill the space with new ideas and beginnings. As I come up on the one year date of this project I find myself doing the same. I'm not thinking so...

360 1. Winter is coming. Finally. Seriously, finally.  2. Five more days until this project hits the year mark. I'm still not sure what to think about that. THESE 3 THINGS has become less a project and more of a part of my daily ritual now. It truly has become a practice and it is hard for me to believe that there was a time that I didn't do this. There is so much I want to do with the project. Next on my list is to create a THESE 3 THINGS podcast. I'm so curious to interview friends and...

THESE 3 THINGS 359

359 1. Music is my memory. I fell down a music rabbit hole this morning which took me all over the place, including a serious trip down memory lane. When the Stars Go Blue by Ryan Adams is a really great song. It's so great that even when someone else sings it, and a lot of different people have, it's still really beautiful. The original version led me to a version sung by The Corrs and Bono and that led me to remember how popular The Corrs were when I was living in Ireland. It was The Corrs, Oasis -...
