Celebrating "I love to write day": Six Tallulahish posts to re-visit this season
November 16, 2017
One of the first things I do when I sit down at my computer in the morning is check a website that lists all the holidays and special events going on that day. It lists everything from Christmas to National Pack Your Mom's Lunch Day (it's a thing). I do this because fake holidays like National IPA Day and National Chocolate Day are great social media opportunities for the social media accounts I run.
Yesterday, as I scrolled past useless holidays like National Pack Your Mom's Lunch Day (sorry Mom), I saw that it was also I Love to Write Day. Well, I thought, I do love to write...
but more so, I love to create conversation. I love to connect. I love knowing that there's a story out there for everything and everyone. I love that there's a couple hundred of you who keep coming back to talk about real life, real bodies, and real stories. Because of all of that, I love to write. So I guess yesterday was a holiday for me! Yay me!
In honor of this unexpected holiday, I thought it might be nice to bake myself a cake shaped like a pencil or my MacBook, but I'm not that talented of a baker or that blessed with free time. Instead, I'd like to invite you to celebrate a belated I Love To Write Day with me by looking through the Tallulahish archives. Below are six posts from various points in the last year on loving yourself, finding body peace, living life with intention, surviving the holidays, and more. Take what you need:
"The need for "time" seems ever-present...I've found that knowing what my time is worth helps me explain why I cannot give it away freely. I talk a lot about putting yourself first but that doesn't mean it's always easy. It's not." Good For: Stress, Time Management, Holidays, Goal Setting
"Our bodies, what we do with them and what we choose to put inside of them is a personal and sovereign choice. When we use that freedom as a way to build ourselves up at the expense of other humans, it becomes problematic."
Good For: Body Positivity, Judgement, Balance, Perspective
"We've got to get back to our words and our art, now more than ever. We've got to hold on to what defines us... letting self-doubt creep into the creative process opens the door to a vicious cycle that usually ends in tears, self-loathing and a pile of stale, half-eaten miniature candy bars."
Good For: Creativity, Work Inspiration, Burn Outs, Existential Dread over the State of Our Union (what?! it's a thing.)
