week five: how to get by or the five best posts elsewhere

I've been trying to get by this week.  Just get by.  I feel splintered into too many different directions and consequently, I have little to show for any effort I make.  My mantra has simply become: "By doing a little bit each day, you can get a lot accomplished." It's one of Gretchen Rubin's Secrets of Adulthood.  I guess that's why my kitchen and living room have stayed so clean lately, but the process has become to feel slow.  I am both tired and impatient with streaks of boredom and longing tossed in.  So I've started writing down everything that I have accomplished each day, tiny markers of moving forward. This is one of the markers. I haven't decided if it helps or not, but it's one way for me to get by.

There's No Such Thing As Stuck.  Thank you, Verhext.

You were made to be awesome.  It must be viral by now, but it should be, because you are.  And you need to hear it.  I know I do.  As seen on A Mountain Bride.  Thanks Jes!
