Over the weekend, six of us got together at my friend Aysia’s apartment for an afternoon filled with chats about Vishen’s book, The Code of the Extraordinary Mind, vision-boarding and copious amounts of popcorn and chocolate-y goods.
It’s so refreshing to have open chats with other women about self-development — sharing our challenges, how to overcome those challenges, and simply living life more intentionally.
When I went shopping for magazines we could use, I picked up Cottage Living, (which upon further research seems to have been discontinued in 2008…so thanks to my local CVS for continuing to sell them?) My ideal living situation is a gorgeous little cottage in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by a landscaped garden where I could sit and read amongst flowers, strum a ukelele and plant my own herbs — so that magazine find was a holy grail.
All I can say is that I really recommend you just sit down with a few of your friends, gather some old magazines, and DIY old-school.
If you don’t necessarily know what you’re looking to prioritize in your life, this may be a good place to start. Grab some scissors and tape, and get to work.
