Five Favorites For Friday – Week Ending Feb. 23, 2007

Time flies when you’re having fun!  It seems that it was just yesterday that I posted last week’s Five Favorites For Friday, and yet, another week is just about done.  I discovered some posts this week that generally covered the areas of personal growth and development, but I stumbled upon a very funny post as well.  In no order or preference, here are this week’s “Favorites.” 

Favorite #1 – Go, go, go, go, go, go, go!  Non-stop, never-ending, never-ceasing, email-driven, Blackberry-addicted, stressed-out, anxiety-ridden, and insomnia-laden…Do any of these compound adjectives describe anybody you know (of course, not you, and certainly not me!)?  For that person you know, Madena M. (whose mission in life is to encourage others to reach their fullest potential) at Soul To Soul provides a wonderful balm to soothe the savage trying to take over one’s soul in her post “What Are You Running From?”.

Favorite #2 – Here is a post by Jennifer Jones at Goodness Graciousness entitled “Losing Everything…And Surviving.”  It is one of those posts that helps to put things about life in perspective, at least for a moment.

Favorite #3Leigh Anne Jasheway-Bryant, M.P.H., writing at Cultivate Greatness states, “None of us wants to think of ourselves as toxic, and chances are, for the most part you are not. But there are certain times of our lives that all of us start to exhibit more noxious tendencies. If you’ve noticed any of the following signs, you may need to detoxify your life…”  Discover the signs and how you would go about flushing out the toxins poisoning your life in “Becoming A Non-Toxic Person.”  Don’t let that poison seep into the lives of those around you…

Favorite #4Chatty over at Chatty Crone discusses the importance of thinking about the miracles that occur around you each day in a post entitled…Well, it’s not titled.  A picture is truly worth a thousand words…

Favorite #5 – Now for a little humor.  For those of you who are teachers (and for those of you who aren’t), I highly recommend you read “Amazing Exam Papers” at The Barrister Blog.   Here you will find out what happens when students are clueless about concepts but have amazing creative ability.  For example, if by chance you ever wanted to discover how to use calculus to find the identity of Batman, you’ve found how to do it here.  Because I teach, this post is a little sad to me, but in a completely hilarious sort of way (sounds like there’s a little twistedness going on in my head, huh?).

That ends this week’s Five Favorites.   Let me know how you liked the posts.  And as always, please visit and comment on these blogs.  I know they’d love to hear from you (as would I!)!

    Hi KWiz,

    It’s nice when the weekend comes, but they do seem to be getting here quicker these days.

    I like your ‘Five Favorites For Friday’ post. It’s a nice way to wind down from the hustle and bustle of the work week. Looks like you’ll have another Friday visitor.

    Take care, and have a great weekend.

    You give us all much to think about. It was my pleasure to “track back.” I like finding what other people say and linking it to a post, because it shows we are all, in a very big way, linked to one another.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the post. I’m even more glad I’ll have another Friday visitor. I really do love doing that weekly post.
