Welcome to another edition of #3ThingsThursday, hosted by Pink Chai Living, The Write Balance and Love Laugh Mirch – where bloggers share 3 things that are relevant in their worlds during a particular week. I invite you to visit the hosts plus all the bloggers who have linked up!

This week, I want to share with you 3 articles I have written for outside publications that you may not know are out there unless you caught them on Facebook or Twitter.

If you enjoy Let ME Out!! then you would appreciate these pieces:

1. Being Still: It’s Not What You May Think was written for a great community called Conscious Divas, founded by Kate Muker and made amazing by the thousands of women (and men!) who align themselves with this group. I wrote this when my baby was just a couple months old, when I was forced to ‘be still’ as I have previously experienced in the past with the other two babies. But this time around, I had a whole new perspective and I think it would serve you, too.

2. 5 Ways To Get Your Kids Talking About Authenticity was published on ChatterBlock, an online parent resource that has information you need to enjoy parenting in your particular city. This is the second in a 3 part series (a link to the first article is within this post). I really think the best thing we can give our children is permission to be themselves. But how do we do that? How do we get the conversation going in our families? And importantly, why should we be encouraging our kids to be authentic? It’s all here. The third part should be out next week!

3. Charity And Business: An Unlikely Pair Or A Perfect Match? was a fun piece to write for my favourite jewelry line! Not only does Brooke design beautiful things to dress you up, she is also a socially conscious entrepreneur and contributes to the relationship between charity and business. I happen to be in love with this relationship as both an entrepreneur and social change ambassador. I have a whole new take on the ‘us’ and ‘them’ paradigm we used to subscribe to. I’d love to know what you think of it.

Thanks for reading and I hope you get a chance to peruse the other blogs!
