Here is this week’s list of blog posts, poems, gifs, and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.
A Metronome for Breathing. Isn’t this cool? I think it would be a great breathing rhythm for meditation.
The Case of the Missing Spoons via cunninghamb103. I lose socks, too, although so far I’ve managed to find (most) of them again.
Never Saw This Coming via bobnailor. Before you read this, think about who and what you thought you’d be when you grew up.
In the Day After the World Stopped Being. I really hope the author writes a sequel to this soon. It needs one.
I Weigh 200 Pounds, and I’ve Never Been Happier via LorenKleinman. This made me so glad that I grew up in a family that never shamed anyone for how much they weighed. As an adult, I’m horrified by this behaviour.
From Why Self-Compassion Trumps Self-Esteem:
Continually feeding our need for positive self-evaluation is a bit like stuffing ourselves with candy. We get a brief sugar high, then a crash. And right after the crash comes a pendulum swing to despair as we realize that—however much we’d like to—we can’t always blame our problems on someone else. We can’t always feel special and above average.

I liked this business:
“Herbert Henry Asquith”
That was fascinating, Herbert.
