Linen and Lemons

I've been busy with a new project. Come take a peek over here.
Occasional weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God. And embrace the life you have.   (John Piper)

Don't be beautiful

They keep saying that beautiful is something a girl needs to be. 
But honestly? 
Forget that. 
Don’t be beautiful. 
Be angry, 
be intelligent, 
be witty, 
be klutzy, 
be interesting, 
be funny, 
be adventurous, 
be crazy, 
be talented - 
there are an eternity of other things to be other than beautiful. 
And what is beautiful anyway but a set of letters strung together to make a word? 
Be your own definition of amazing, always. 
That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.

Anna Wintour's Secrets to Success

Agree-especially that last one!

A Task Will Swell

"A task will swell in {perceived} importance and complexity 
in relation to the time allotted for its completion..
If I give you 24 hours to complete a project, 
the time pressure forces you to focus on execution 
and you have not choice 
but to focus on the essentials....
In the end products of a shorter deadline 
is almost inevitably of equal 
or higher quality 
due to greater focus."
