sunflower_giveToday is the 4th Anniversary of The Jolyn Project and I wish to celebrate by highlighting my personal top 5 favorite posts from each section. First up–the ‘give’ section!

My Top 5 Favorite  ‘give’ Posts of 2013

1. give yourself a 2nd, 3rd and 4th chance: This is one of the shortest posts in the give section this year and I love it so much because the whole piece is a musical metaphor to the power of unconditional love and acceptance.  READ HERE

2. offer compassion, when one offers anger: I have to give some credit to the singer, Jhene Aiko for this one. Sometimes, I read her tumblr blog for inspiration because she always has amazing content.

3. give peace, think peace, act peace: Being apart of the Bloggers for Peace movement motivated me to write this and I am so proud to be apart of it and to consistently share the importance of peace with you guys. We all need reminders to be more peaceful in our actions and this was my way of reminding myself and others.  READ HERE

5. give yourself a gift of light: I wasn’t in a good place not too long before writing this piece but I made it a mission to find some positive things to lift my mood and the two videos that are featured were what got me through that low point. I figured that others may find happiness through these videos and then I thought it may be a good idea to describe what I did in hopes to help others who were in the same boat as me. READ HERE
