Confidence vs shyness. This is one of the most important and inspirational things I’ve read this year. I get caught up in the too much thinking thing.

Confidence means being in the moment and acting with intention, not distracted by second thoughts or in your head.

I’m going to write that on notes and post them all over my house!!

Black hole zones in cribs, car seats and strollers.

Home staging: bathrooms. I have found staging gives you the house you wished for, but never had because you couldn’t let go of your clutter. I need to declutter more.

Love this story. RT @KristyKJames: Remember When, Part 1

A conversation with savant Daniel Tammet. The way his mind works is so fascinating.

Synesthesia, something Tammet mentions,  is something I actually experience. Mainly with numbers, particularly numbers 2-6, have a personality. Even numbers are feminine and odd are male.  2 and 3 are in love, 4 loves 3 and is always trying to find ways to get rid of 2. 5 loves 4, but for whatever reason follows 4 around and helps in her crazy schemes to get rid of 2. 6 defies the rule and is male, and is a neutral party, trying to get 4 to abandon her quest. Numbers above this have some personality, but it’s not as distinct to me as those. 1 is a male child with no distinctive personality.

I feel like I’m crazy confessing this. Numbers are just abstract representation. I recall doing math in grade 3 and see these dynamics play out on the page. I knew that it wasn’t normal so I never told anyone.

People with autism often also have synthesia, as well people with synthesia are often involved in creative work. (from the Wikipedia article).
