Welcome to A Meaningful Existence!

Friday’s Links

I’ve been feeling sort of at odds this week as my aunt died last week and I had to go back to my hometown to attend her funeral. Thankfully, Jennifer at Gurls Asylum stepped in with a great guest-post where she shared her struggles with self-love.

But, even though I haven’t been feeling quite up to par this week, I have had time to check out some great articles.

First, we have Ayo Olaniyan from Discovering Purpose who brings us The Fifth Edition of The Life Skills Magazine. Read online or download the latest version of this fantastic resource. You have No Excuses not to read this edition, especially as it contains a bumper crop of extra articles. I bet you recognize some of the great writers inside this magazine. Ayo has really raised the bar by putting out this personal development resource every month!

After you read Ayo’s great magazine collection, then make sure you check out Ross Hudgens fantastic article called 10 Bloggers Talk About Personal Development. A little bit of self-promotion here as Ross included me as part of the 10, but it’s fascinating to read what other personal development bloggers have to say about the niche. Go check this article out and let me know what you think. Ross did an awesome job with this article!

Steve Scott has been on an absolute writing binge lately. He’s running a great series about blogging that you should definitely check out, but I wanted to highlight his article called Wherever You Go, There You Are. We’ve all heard the saying, but Steve seemed to capture the essense of it really well this week. Or maybe I was just in the right frame of mind to listen to his article, particularly this part:

The point I’m trying to make here is that moving or travelling probably isn’t going to change who you are, especially if you’re unable to deal with certain problems that you’re having.   Real change comes from identifying what’s on the inside and proactively taking steps to fix whatever you feel like you want to escape from. — Steve Scott

If you’re in the mood for some productivity tips, like I was this week, then you’ll really enjoy Luciano from Litemind’s article called 6 New Productivity Principles to Live By.  Go check it out and see if you agree with his 6 principles or if he’s missing one or two.

Finally, we have Krishna who wrote an excellent guest-post over at 6aliens.com called Refuel Inspiration to Charge Your Passion. I enjoyed reading this article, particularly this week, and I know you will, too. Krishna did an great job offering some strategies to renew your passion.

What have you read this week that was particularly share-worthy? Let us know by leaving a comment below. Thanks!

I should be back to my normal self next week. Thanks for sticking around.

As always, have a fanastic weekend.
