What are you up to this week? We have been having a pretty routine week, but a little busier than normal. I'm going to my first hip hop dance class tonight with some co-workers! That should be a hoot! If you're in the reading moon, here are a few fun links from around the web...

 

Have you seen the trailer for the upcoming movie about Mr. Rogers documentary? It looks SO good and makes me (and everyone- I'm sure!) sentimental of their childhood. What a pure and gentle soul- something that you don't see on TV much anymore. 

I read a really great article called "Raise Your Son to Be a Good Man, Not a 'Real' Man" and a lot of points really stuck out to me! In a survey taken around the world, all of the young men described qualities of a "good man" and a "real man" with different descriptive words. Integrity, honor, & standing up for the little guy vs. Power, never cry, & win at all costs. It is very telling to the conflicting directions our young men are being pulled and how these differing messages are influencing their personalities and creating confusing feelings and dangerous behaviors. 

It's getting warmer down here in the South, and that only reinforces my urge to bust out this Classic Daiquiri recipe!

The most hilarious wildlife photos of 2017 are such gems and made me laugh out loud! They reminded me of this hilarious video from several years that still cracks me up, especially the sharks and the groundhog!

As a coach, the topic of leadership has always been one that fascinates me. Combine that with my love of podcasts and daily commutes, and you have Finding Mastery. Michael Gervais sits down with professional coaches like Luke Walton, to titans like Ariana Huffington and Damon John. 

I'm loving this series of essays called Origin Story where Victoria McGinley researches her biological family history. She was adopted from South Korea, but had been told all her life that she doesn't look full Korean, so she goes on a journey to discover her ancestry. It's a really fascinating story about how adoption shapes your personality and how trying to connect with your birth country and possibly biological family members can shift your identity throughout your life.

Traveling is always on our minds, especially on a budget, right? Here are Travel and Leisure's      5 Surprisingly Affordable Places to Travel this Spring

Definitely need to read this book before Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington star in the new TV series on Hulu! It will be a must watch!
