April favorites

Before I dive into April favorites, I want to show you Lizzy’s poster everywhere at home for 24 hrs while Sofia was on a sleepover. She’s really funny and creative, isn’t she?

I had so many favorite moments this month: Lizzy’s birthday and our Komodo trip are moments that I’ll remember for a long time. Lizzy had fun snorkeling with daddy

and I love so much the sunrise and sunset in Komodo. I am very looking forward to our next boat trip, maybe December.

Favorite podcasts:

  • Tim Ferriss podcast with Kevin Kelly. It took me a while to get into it but man… it’s so out of the box ideas/thoughts with such clarity. I ordered Kevin’s book right away.
  • Tim Ferriss podcast with Derek Sivers. Again, unconventional life path, brilliant ideas communicated with such clarity that I admire and inspired me.
  • We can do hard things ep 200. I think Glennon could be seen as crazy or brilliant. I think she’s latter as she challenges conventional views, has so many insights that I never thought about and then once she said it, with such clarity, I totally agree. I love her idea of what is our body to us, to our life, a brush to create a master piece, not the master piece. If you ever struggle with body image, which I think we all do at certain point in life, listen to this episode. It blowed my mind.

My consumption of podcast has declined as I am deliberately choosing to listen to music in some of my runs, and silence during most of my commute walks. I realize that my mind is very busy all the time. If I don’t leave space to let thoughts out, I feel overwhelmed, unfocused, lost, more often than I want to.

Books read:

Gut feelings: it’s not a brilliant book but my journey to treat my gut issues continues, so it was a useful read at this time.

Calypso. I laughed out so many times and realize the difference between humor and funny. I even read a few passage to the girls and they enjoyed the story too.

City of girls. I had this book for years and finally got to finish it. It was an entertaining book. The passage I like the most is: Once I like someone, I can’t not like them again.

Movie/TV watched:

The night agent: 3/5

Hunger: 3/5

  1. Aren’t sunrises/sunsets the best? Time stands still. I am glad to hear you had such a lovely trip. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day.


  2. That sign is hilarious!!! I love it! Lizzy is funny!

    I haven’t listened to as many podcasts as usual as I haven’t been going for as many walks or runs either due to work being crazy, being sick, or the weather. I travel again this week so will probably catch up a bit. I always forget about Glennon’s podcast since it’s on Spotify. I don’t use that ap so have to remember to go there and see what episodes they’ve released!


  3. I also decided to reduce my consumption of podcasts because, although many provide valuable content, they still serve as auditory stimuli. Like you, I need moments of silence or music.
    My two highlights of April would be our trip to Denmark and gardening in our yard.
