“Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease…with carefreeness, harmony, and love. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.” —Deepak Chopra
Zoella featured Monday Vibes as one of the, “12 Newsletters Actually Worth Opening”! And thanks to such a lovely feature, our beautiful Monday Vibes community has grown a TON in the last week. So I wanted to send out a special bonus issue to celebrate the good news and welcome all the new faces!
I’m honestly still in shock. SHOCK. To be in the company of so many (s)heros like Girls’ Night In, Well Read Black Girl, The Hyphen by Emma Gannon, and The Cramm…like whhhhhat? Such an honor. Should we have a little IG Live dance party to celebrate together this Friday? Hit reply if you’re in!
A gentle reminder for this week: When you focus on what’s in alignment for you, the rest falls into place with ease.
WARM AND FUZZIES
“Don’t Give Up On Me” Andy Grammer feat. PS22 Chorus
I love kids. And I love songs with soul. So when I come across kids who sing songs with soul, MY HEART EXPLODES. I’m obsessed with the PS22 Chorus and every time I watch this video, it takes me somewhere. Tears, smiles, and more tears.
OBSESSION OF THE WEEK
Self Care by Leigh Stein
Ya’ll, Self Care is a fab book. Who else has read it? I thought it was a hilarious read for anyone who’s worked in the start-up world or likes poking fun at the hypocrisy of the wellness industry. Where feminism is taken a step too far and wellness is corrupted by capitalism. Where the lines get blurry and integrity crumbles. All juicy topics that I spend a lot of my days thinking about. Plus, as a writer, it’s a great example of how to write unlikeable characters.
