Be Gentle With Yourself.
You're Doing the Best You Can.


This is a major problem for me. There's a saying - "You are your worst critic." - and that is oh so true when it comes to how I deal with myself and my accomplishments and failures.

I am beyond harsh on myself. Every failure is the end of the world, and every success isn't nearly good as it could have been. I require perfection from myself, and it often leaves me drained and hesitant to put myself out there in any capacity.

So here's what I propose: let's do it together. Let's be gentler with ourselves, realize that we're doing as well as we can, and respect ourselves enough to realize how awesome we actually are. We can do that, right?

Peace.
Stef.

Little Suns - Sunboat

Another one brought to my attention by the wonderfully fantastic drama, It's Okay, That's Love, this song is super fun and simple with great orchestration. Plus, that horn section. Just love it.

Have a listen below and bounce along!


What did you think?

Peace.

Reason #92356829 Why I Never, EVER, Want to Be President
DO NOT WATCH THE JAMES FOLEY VIDEO

You've all seen it blasted across the news. James Foley has been murdered by ISIS, and they uploaded a video showing them do it. As someone who was stupid and morbidly curious enough to click on the link, I implore you,

DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO.
I cannot stress this enough.

It is not worth your time, and it is exactly what ISIS wants. Just... don't watch it. Please.


For those of you who haven't been keeping up with the news and constant reminders of how human being are awful, terrible monsters, James Foley was an American photojournalist who has been MIA since November 22nd, 2012. 

Well, he's no longer missing.

New Blog Series!!
Dear Sissybug Book Review - An Introduction

Why, yes. I'm sure my sister is very happy with my logo choice. Why do you ask?

NEW BLOG INSTALLMENT!

I present to you Dear Sissybug Book Club, in which my sister, Sissybug* (of Twitter, A Little More Juju, and The Legion fame), and I will write corresponding reviews regarding a book of our choice on a bi-monthly** basis (1st and 3rd Thursday of every month).

The books for this month have been chosen by Sissybug, and I will be choosing October's books (mwahahahahaaaaaaa... the power!!!), but after that we will each choose one book per month: Jenn's pick will be the first review of the month, and mine will be the second. She will also be posting her reviews on her blog as well, so you can see her viewpoint as well should you want to read more.

Our first iteration will post on Thursday, September 4th, 2014. We're starting out with a novel entitled Her Sky Cowboy by Beth Ciotta, and as a rip-roaring steampunk romance, it sounds like it's going to be an interesting read at the least.

Wish us luck!

Peace.
Stef.
