February Highlights & Inspiration

February update Julie Leah Blog

Hi, friends! Just popping in today to share my update from February! This first part of 2019 has been really exciting and inspiring for me. I'm a firm believer in never outgrowing self discovery and learning things about yourself that are core truths for your existence on this planet. One of the things I have learned is that travel and "plans" keep me energized and productive. Honestly, I get why some companies do four-day work weeks! The time off that I've taken on the last two months has made me happier, helped me operate with more clarity, and aided in my productivity at work. If you're looking for a sign to take that mental health day, consider this it and it's loaded with validation and permission from me :) Do it. 

As my Aunt Dolly (Parton) would say, "Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life."

As I mentioned in my goals post, each month I want to share things that I've been doing/reading/watching/listening to that are keeping me inspired, keeping me on track with my goals, and overall enriching my everyday life. Here is my February list:

one. Abby & Glennon (see photo above)
I set a goal this year to seek out speakers/conferences to attend. I am so glad that this was my first one of the year!

I finally finished this book last month! I did the Audible version and cannot recommend it enough! The narrator is phenomenal. As an educator, I am confident in saying that this should be required reading for high schoolers.

I started this book last month and (so far) highly recommend! The book addresses the damage done by the church with regards to sexuality and the necessary undoing and healing for many of us, especially those dealing with the effects of purity culture.

I downloaded this last month (it's free!) and started following the author, Layla Saad, on instagram. I encourage all of you (who benefit from white privilege) to click over and read about Layla's work.

If you aren't following this series, you are missing out. There is so much wisdom pouring out of this family.
