What To Read On Medium This Week — 29
This week’s featured stories
Hi! Everyone. How has June dawned for you? Are you rushing towards the half-year ending mark with lots to do, targets to meet, and goals to accomplish? Or are you shrugging it all off and taking it at your own pace?
How’s your writing going?
And oh, are you enjoying these roundups/reading lists that I put together every week? (comment and let me know!)
I have been busy with my own writing outside of Medium (girl’s gotta eat!) and tending to my own websites. The week was pleasantly hectic with work, some play, some outdoor happiness, and of course, the omnipresent cooking.
I celebrated two birthdays during the past week. Baked cakes for the birthday babies. And a pleasant time was had by all. I forgot to take photos of the cakes, can you imagine? I was so excited that they came out perfectly and couldn’t wait to take it over to them.
Fortunately, I do take pictures most of the time, and here’s one of a tiramisu dessert I enjoyed not long ago. So delicious.
The posts I have for you this week are just as delicious to read — dessert for the soul, I’d say.
Let’s get started, shall we?
First up, is Lucy Dan 蛋小姐 (she/her/她)’s post. Now I must tell you that Lucy is an amazingly prolific writer who can write about anything, in any style. She manages to cover a range of ideas and in fact, she’s the first writer on Medium who ALWAYS gives shoutouts to other writers. The post I am sharing here is about her writing process. Fantastic read. I’d say lucyd writing, but I actually mean lucid. She’s so good!
Preeti Ramachandran is another excellent writer whose words I enjoy reading. This humor piece by her had me giggling so much. Go read it!
Carl Gerber’s post is as informative as it is useful and covers tips on how to find well-being in today’s world. He shares a great 3-step technique to ground yourself.
Trisha Dunbar (She/Her) talks about a terrifying condition called sleep paralysis, how to recognize it, and how to deal with it. A must-read, because I think we all experience this at some point in our lives.
Dennett is one of my favorite photographers and in this post, she shares gorgeous pictures of birds. A visual treat and a delightful read.
Have you heard of the Law of Jante? I hadn’t until I read Ulf Wolf’s most interesting post. Check it out.
Becky Piatt Davidsonfeels that nothing should come in the way of finding a great mentor. I tend to agree with her. So what if your mentor has been dead for centuries?
I enjoyed reading Melissa Kalt, MD’s posts about narcissists. She talks about seven covert narcissist behaviors — found it fascinating.
Sarah-Jane W.’s post made me laugh so hard! No I did not pee in my pants…but still! Go get your dose of laughter!
Mira Lucas’s post is a terrific read. She talks about the lessons she learned from living dangerously — which can be as simple as just living. In her words,being courageous is about letting go of the ego.
Dhawal Kapilhas stopped adding stories to his reading list. Why? Read his post to find out. He has some valid points.
For those wondering what to write about this month, the Medium Creators have that covered. Good tips.
With that, we wrap up this week’s reading list!
Do visit these stories, comment, and clap. And do let me know which ones were your favorites!
Until next week ❤
