5 inspiring websites for the human, not the parent, in you.Kristy Carlson
Our job as parents is not a cake walk, mine is full of dirty diapers and lots of kid talk! I google stuff like, “what to do if my kid swallows a …….” I find it’s really important to, every once in awhile, indulge the human (not the parent) in me so that I stay inspired and excited about the world around me. I need breaks from all the kid crazy once in awhile to ingest the beautiful, the inspiring and the insanely amazing. I hope these sites help you stay inspired as much as they do me.
Here. We. Go.
Ever wondered what’s inside the homes of some of the creative greats around the world? The Selby by Todd Selby shows you in a uniquely intimate and detailed way. Just try to spend less than 5 minutes in Todd’s cyber-space, I think it is totally impossible.
When I am having one of “those days” when I feel like every creative bone in my body is broken, I often listen to a TED talk or two to get me fired up, encouraged and feeling PART of the community of creatives in this world.
Brene Brown, Ordinary Courage
I barely have words for how this woman’s books have transformed my life. Brene Brown’s dedication to authenticity and courage are awe-inspiring and so truthful you will want to stand up and shout, “YES!!!!”
This space, curated by Christopher Jobson, is nearly impossible to quit. Really. There are fewer spaces that inspire me as an artist than this. There are plenty of, “How the heck did they make THAT?” moments on this site. It’s unique and I can feel Christopher’s love of the arts just oozing from its cyber pores.
If you are a creative entrepreneur this site will take the cake for you. Productivity, creativity, support, meaning in work… it’s all there and it’s all absolutely amazing.
