We’re Back! And How to Guarantee a Life of Misery
Hello my friends,
I’m so thrilled to be back! It’s been too long 🙂
I hope you’re doing well and embracing the joy of the Easter Season! I had a few wild weeks of travel in April, turned 27 (yay!), and celebrated Easter with my family back in California. This week, I have two major final presentations to consulting clients for school, and next week I have final exams, so it is not slowing down. However, I’m so overjoyed to be in this season because I know that it’s where God needs me to be, so all is gift. Besides, once I’m done with this, I’m off to Ireland and Italy for three weeks! So I have a very bright light at the end of the tunnel.
Here are three things on my mind:
- The Gospel from this weekend is one of my favorites! Jesus appears to the apostles after His resurrection, meeting them for breakfast on the beach. During his homily, our pastor Fr. Graebe illuminated the Gospel in a way I’d never heard before. Peter swims ashore to find Jesus sitting at a charcoal fire, and the only other time a charcoal fire is found in the Gospels is when Peter denies Jesus three times during the Passion. I’d never heard this before, and what a moment of joy and redemption. Jesus meets Peter and offers such deep mercy and love. So beautiful.
- I read an incredible speech by Charlie Munger last night, and really encourage you to check it out: “How to Guarantee a Life of Misery.” He shares surefire ways to live a life of misery, and I found a lot of wisdom in his words. I encourage you to dig in and read!
- We dropped three podcast episodes over the past six weeks, and encourage you to check them out! See the links and descriptions below.
Finally, we have a BIG announcement coming this week! Be sure to stay tuned on our social media to see what’s coming!
Ep 51 | Friendship with Erica Carnohan
Making friends and maintaining friendships as an adult can be a challenge. Today, my bff Erica is on the pod, and we’re talking all about how we keep our long-distance friendship alive and thriving! We cover ways to make friends when moving to a new city, what we look for in our friendships, how to discern if it might be time for a friendship to end, and so many other little tips and stories about friendship!
Ep 52 | Beauty, Pride, Modesty and More with Bridget Handy
I know I say this every week, but this episode is SO GOOD. Bridget is back, and we’re talking all about beauty. How do we define beauty? What does it mean to be beautiful? How can we steward the gift of our beauty in a world that is bent on driving us towards comparison, competition, and self-doubt? Bridge and I explore the gift of femininity and the ways that we present ourselves in the world while offering some tips on how to protect and honor the gifts that God has given us. Enjoy!
Ep 53 | Five Questions for More Fulfilling Work
What’s the purpose of work? How do I find a job/company/role that fulfills me? Is it realistic for work to be meaningful? How much can I really expect from my job? Questions around “meaningful work” are by far the most popular we get in our DMs and emails, so today I’m sharing the five questions I use to reflect on where I am in my work life. These questions are designed to help us discern where and how God is calling us to work in our current season!
- For the soul of Tony Moises, who passed away this weekend
- For all those who have finals over the next few weeks
