Link love (the cake-for-breakfast edition)

The best weekends start with cake. Always.

And then they segue into bumper link roundups. One that’s had me mulling it over is this HuffPo piece on honest marriage vows. My 2 cents: I couldn’t agree more on the dishes – this is why a dishwasher is a must for me when we renovate; and so far, working towards a place of trust around managing money seems to be working.

This week’s links

The power of financial surrender

And of changing your money mindset

Frugality takes time

Bleeding on the job

Rent rage

Mind hacks for money stress

The stories we tell ourselves matter (and here’s my version of this)

You’re not meant to do what you love – you’re meant to do what you’re good at

Working in your passion is overrated

Affiliate income for beginners 

The allure of shiny better vs real  better:

In my humble opinion, real better has these characteristics.

It brings a deep, calming happiness rather than a shopping-thrill kind of rush.

It doesn’t rob future you of comfort, stability and choice.

    Nice links today!

    I happen to disagree about the passion/job thing but I do agree that there is a damaging myth that you have to fulfill your passion in life through your job. Not so! But I do think it is an option worth exploring.
