Hi there, how's it going? It's the last Monthly Round-Up of 2018, and possibly my last Monthly Round-Up for awhile. This year, it's been fun to share articles and podcasts that have caught my eye/ear, but I'm thinking of changing things up in 2019 in a still-to-be-determined way. We are all changing, and what works for us in one season of life doesn't always work in the next. So stay tuned, and we'll see how this blog develops during 2019!
Today I'm sharing:
Article: What's All This About Journaling?
"Journaling may sound hokey to some. But it can be one of the most useful and cost-effective tools we have to forge a better, more emotionally and mentally healthy life."
Podcast: Online Dating: Can Science Find You Love?

I Don't Feel Middle Age, Until I Do
"I’m not complaining. Really I’m not. I feel fortunate that I get to grow older, and I have to laugh as I watch myself and my peers morphing into our parents."
A Little Happier: A Lesson From Harry Potter About Knowing Who You Are
"It’s when Harry Potter accepts his own nature, and his own strengths, and works within them to meet his dragon."
Every Adult Should Have a Bedtime
"Not only is a regular bedtime just about the most enjoyable habit available to us living things, but it is extremely good for us."
