That said, here were my favorite reads lately:

Meal Planning Challenge from I Heart Planners [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]

We’re wrapping up another month, which means I’m on the hunt for new challenges, and I’m liking this Meal Planning Challenge from I Heart Planners. I try to loosely follow a plan anyway, but it will be fun to see if I can keep it up for 30 days in a row.

Good, Bad & Ugly of Kitchen Renovation from I Heart Organizing [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]

I’ve been meaning to share some progress updates on our living and dining room for quite a while and was feeling badly about it since we’ve been working on the project for more than a year. Reading this “good, bad and ugly” report about renovating from I Heart Organizing was just what I needed at this point. Renovations take a lot of time, and sometimes you have to live in the space to pinpoint what it still needs.

The Power of Words from Hugs and Lattes [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]

Hugs and Lattes has been featuring posts about becoming a world changers, and one of her posts was about believing that we are enough. It made me think of a of a conversation the Mister and I had this weekend about how much pressure there is to fit a certain mold (specifically regarding physical appearance) for younger women in our society today. We all need to believe in ourselves and our talents a little more and worry a little less on how put together we do or don’t look.

Moving on After Losing a Parent from Venus Trapped in Mars [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]

This post from Venus Trapped in Mars about moving on after a parent passes away was SO POWERFUL to me. I lost my mom when I was 16, and I found myself nodding in agreement over and over as I was reading. It is also a great read to learn how to support a friend who is going through this incredibly difficult time of life.

Overcoming Fear of Change from Maxabella Loves [Weekly Round-Up at High-Heeled Love]

Another ongoing conversation I’ve been having with the Mister is about which direction that we want our lives to go in, which involves discussing possible major life changes. Big life changes can be so scary because the results are so unknown; enter this list of from Maxabella Loves of 10 Ways to Overcome Fear of Change. I found it be helpful, and I’m sharing it with the Mister.
