The Matchbook | 3.10.23
Little Bits Of Light
It ain’t warm here, so I ain’t sayin’ hot damn. It’s cold, so frost darnit, here are some steamy links to keep you toasty. Enjoy your Friday you goofs.
Your support keeps the lights on in this cold, dark place. It lets me eat foods, which is nice of you. If you wanna help that cause, here’s a way:
Here’s the scoop, kids:
Happiest Cities In America - Did your city make the list? Mine didn’t, though two cities in my state did. Which I suppose isn’t too bad since we’re such a tiny population zone. Still, if you’re looking for more happiness in YOUR life, and who isn’t, maybe scan the list, see if a move is in store? Why not, life’s short, stop being miserable where you are.
How To Sincerely Apologize - I’ve long thought a huge way to be happier, is to be better at forgiveness, and be better at asking for that forgiveness. We carry such weight not doing so, and why? This article is a great reminder about this, and how to be better At it. Give it a read.
Tell Them You’re Proud - Today’s Matchbook seems to have a theme, and that theme is how to be better at our lives, and not-so-oddly, most of those ways involve actually looking Out more than In. Here’s an article about why it’s important to tell those we love that we’re actually proud of them, and how to do so. I love this stuff.
Find Joy In Your Sisyphean Existence - Let’s just go full-blown therapy mode ALL DAY today, and include this little gem. Here’s how to find joy even when you feel like your life may be caught up in the same routines, the same rock-rolling up the same hills. There is still beauty here, we just gotta find it. You’re welcome.
Mo Ghille Mear by the Choral Scholars of University College of Dublin - Totally weird one but watch this, don’t worry about understanding the words, and just f'ing FEEL it. Holy smokes, this is crazy beautiful.
Typewriter Series Nonsense - Oof. More of me reading hopefully beautiful poems whilst also being an idiot. Click the first scroll through the rest.Tiktok failed to load.

I love you all. Be good.
Well this post gets a ❤️ after immediately skipping to #5...what a way to start the morning!
That needs to be my alarm tone to wake me.
Happiest cities - our state barely even made the list with one city at 151 out of 182...so the I jumped immediately into my Friday therapy with Tyler...
I’m proud of you Tyler - thank you for making my life better with each post and letting me tell people far and wide about my amazing friend TYLER and his gift to the world (and then telling them they have to go buy your books for themselves because I can’t chance parting with mine - lol...I give them a link to you to make it easy 🤣)
Today was a true gem!
Tyler, I'm so grateful you're walking the Earth with us. Your words are delicious and we, your followers, are so hungry for them. They gently nudge us to listen, watch, and feel. They remind us to be present in the moment or we'll miss the really important stuff. I want you to know I'm paying attention. I don't want to miss a thing. Sending love and appreciation from the Atlantic seaboard, ~C
