Great Links for a Good Life

Welcome to my personal selection of exceptional posts from around the web, inspiring resources to help you live the best possible life, and (sometimes) a good book or two.  Enjoy!

Around the Web

From Always Well Within

In case you missed one of these, here are some of the most popular posts on Always Well Within since the beginning of the year.

This has been the rainiest May since I’ve been on the Big Island.  I’m itching for summer, for more space and room to breath.  How about you?  I would love to hear which of these links spoke to you too.

Thank you for reading!  If you have a moment to share on social media so others can benefit too, I would be deeply grateful.  May you be well, happy, and safe. With love, Sandra


How to Let Go of Attachments and Find More Ease


Can Your Mind Heal Your Body?


  1. Hey there, I just followed you Twitter but also decided to read one of your links that you recommended as far as “dealing with criticism.” It’s one of my biggest fear and I can’t take criticism lightly. I needed that link that you recommended, it definitely was an eye opener. Nevertheless, it’s still a challenge since I’ve always had that fear my whole life. However, it starts somewhere and it starts with me to not care about what others think of me / my writing. Thanks again for the recommended links!

    • Hi Maze,
      I’m glad that link is speaking to you. I’ve been very sensitive to criticism for most of my life too so I completely understand. How courageous of you to be willing to start letting go. I know it will take a little time, but I trust you will get there. Thanks for sharing your story.

  2. Hi Sandra,

    So love your link roundups. I’ve bookmarked Shades of Sensitivity and The Emptiness of Accolades as well as two of your posts that are clearly written just for me 😉 Aging with Grace: Myth or Reality? and My 16 Zen Work Habits in case you’re wondering – now how on earth did I miss them in the first place?!

    • Annabel,
      So glad you found some relevant post here. I know aging has been on your mind. I hope this helps. 🙂 16 is probably too many work habits, but I love all of these and they are great reminders to have near my side. You were probably off after the holidays with the kids on school vacation, I bet. At least for the first one. Maybe you were flying to an exotic place for the second one!

  3. Sandra, this was the first time I clicked on Less Show. More Soul, despite seeing it all over Twitter. So glad I clicked through when you included it here, it was a powerful reminder.

    And thank you for generously sharing the link to my free mini course post. Although subscribers will be receiving installment 3 today, new subscribers can catch up on earlier lessons as the complete course will be sent through next week 🙂

    • Hi Liz, Yes, it’s a really interesting story. I love when teachers just point out your faults so directly. It’s hard, but it helps. I’m happy to share your new book. However it works out, I’m sure all the right people will get it at the right time.

  4. This is a wonderful list that you have compiled, Sandra. Thank you!

  5. What a treasure you’ve compiled Sandra. I always appreciate what you share. 🙂

  6. First, I very much wish we could have some of your rain for my So Ca area which is experiencing severe drought. Yes, please!

    Thank you for mentioning my article in this round-up of wisdom and thoughtfulness.

    I like to take the time to read each link you share and I always find something that speaks to my heart. I wish I read Jen Louden’s “How I Build my Ideal Work/Life Balance when I was just beginning to create through Facets of Joy – but maybe I wouldn’t have been as open to receive her message, then. I understand it now, though – this creative business is ever-evolving, and definitely a spiritual journey for me. Her message feels like an affirmation of my path.

    I love this from Jonathan Field’s article *So, you put on a show. And it brings in an audience. But an audience is not a community. Nor a business. Nor a tribe.* Right before reading your article, I was writing in my journal about my business about my feeling that I delight in connection with community and that’s what my intention is consistently to build – not ‘just numbers’ but people who know, support and love something about one another.

    “If You Want to Be Light, You Have to Let Go” is also perfect for me today – I am sure there is energetic stuff I have carried into today that I could release and immediately feel (and celebrate) the light-ness.

    Thank you so much for all that you share! Each of your articles is so thoughtful and wise – which is why yours is one of the few blogs I consistently read. (I would read a gazillion if I had time!! For now, I choose those few that enrich my life in some way.)

    • Dear Joy,

      I wish you could have some of our rain too! We do go through drought periods as well so I know how that can feel. Sometimes it can be very dry and windy, which is especially tough on our young trees. But, it’s nothing like what’s happening in California. My heart is with you and all that live there.

      I love your mini-reviews of the articles you read from this list! I’m so inspired when I read about your dedication to community and connection, especially. It’s such a good reminder for all of us in these days when there can be so much stress to get ahead as a blogger.

      You’re so welcome. I love sharing the “thoughtful and wise.” You could say that’s my gig or at least one part of it! 🙂 Much love to you!

  7. Thanks Sandra! These posts from you are always awesome!! 🙂
