Why It Doesn’t Matter What Other People Think Of You (Told via a pizza analogy)

We live in a world of shoulds. 

We spend so much of our time thinking about what decision we should make, what we should do with our lives, our time, our money, our skills, our every minute.

Surely, if you spent every day you were alive walking down different streets, you could do it.

And I simply couldn’t fathom what he was talking about  when he would reply that it wasn’t possible. I just couldn’t get my head around how big the world was.

GUEST POST: Penciling in Playtime: Intentionally adding play to your life

When you think about a growth mindset we think about words like high achieving, successful, driven, ambitious, open minded, strong willed, and intelligent.  Although I absolutely agree that all those traits are part of a growth mindset one that is always missing is well rested.

Being well rested does not only mean getting an adequate amount of sleep…which of course is vital to a growth mindset but it also means having a balance of playtime too
