With the holiday Season upon us, our hearts are often filled with love and goodwill towards our fellow man. To me, Living Inspired means Living this way year round. Even in my own toughest times in life, reaching out to help others made a profound impact (lifting my own spirits as well). When we are putting an energy of love out there, we are in turn going to attract love and kindness unto ourselves. This is where true miracles happen! Today’s inspiration is a true story that happened to me (and my family) a month ago. It is a story of goodwill, kindness, love, and strangers. **Make sure to watch the YouTube video at the end of this, as it goes with my story and I think it will touch … Continue Reading →
Today I am bringing you the continuation of a true story I call, “The Pearable-Or What a Bucket of Fruit Taught Me About Life”. If you have missed the first part of the story, part 2 may not make as much sense. You can click HERE to read part 1. Arm in Arm we set out at dusk (Matt & I) that crisp October eve, with the exuberance of children going door to door at Halloween asking for candy. Only we weren’t the ones receiving. We were the literal bearers of fruit…a bucket of fruit, that is. It was like a grown up version of trick or treating-this random act of kindness we were about to do. We knocked on various doors with our bucket of freshly … Continue Reading →
It’s time for my poetry in five with the Five Minute Friday community! I am a day behind, as I have company here at the cottage and am super busy. This week’s magic word is “FLY”. I have a little childhood story on “flying” to share with you, followed by the whimsical poem I wrote! Won’t you lighten your spirit and indulge in a little childlike glee with me today? (there is a message in this poem for our adult selves too ) When I was a child I used to almost believe I could fly. Did you ever feel that way when you were small? Children are so amazing in their ability to BELIEVE in possibility. That is what made childhood so fun! It was like living … Continue Reading →
Who knew that my latest inspiration would come from a bucket of fruit? (This is what I am talking about when I say “living inspired” guys..there is SO much inspiration around us.) Seemingly mundane, everyday life can provide Life Lessons. Wisdom. Truth. AND a sense of Fun. We just have to Open our eyes, our hearts, and Awaken our senses. There is a story to tell in every day life. YOU have a story. I have a story. And-today a piece of fruit has a story. I call this story “The Pearable.” (a special thanks to a woman in my writing class named Violet Harlow for thinking of this brilliant pun when I was recalling this story to her as a regular parable). If you read my last post … Continue Reading →
” The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.” “Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our … Continue Reading →
” Alone we can do so little ; Together we can do so much. ” -Helen Keller Today I am inspired to talk about the importance of teamwork. Ironically what inspired me was the article I posted yesterday about where Matt and I got this great patio furniture that we have been enjoying all Summer. We are enjoying this patio set because of team work. The patio furniture came in parts. There were 6 chairs, and each chair had to have the arms bolted on with washers, bolts, and rubber caps. The table had to have the entire bottom portion put together as well. Not that it was so hard to do, but being that it is a large and fairly heavy set, it took quite … Continue Reading →
