Inspiration Through Compassion

Inspiration Through Compassion

Tweet Compassion. It’s a word in need of our attention these days. Politics. Fighting. Misunderstanding. It’s enough to make one scream,”Can’t we all just get along?” It’s something easily neglected, but so important to not just getting along, but to understanding ourselves, living a more […]

Inspiring Links for Friday

Inspiring Links for Friday

I get so oogly googly-eyed excited when I randomly click on a new website that’s inspiring!

It’s another blog to visit. Another inspiring post to read.

I started sharing a few on my Facebook page, but decided to share them with you here too.

Then, I thought, why not do it every week?

So I’m starting a new series of post which features blogs and websites that are doing something fun, creative and exciting. And I hope you’ll join me by posting your own favorite website links in the comments below. And pick and choose and explore like we did in Paris just a month ago.

Here we go:

The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur – Isn’t that such a great title? It caught my eye for sure. But what lured me in for good was all the goodies (some free) for entrepreneurs. There’s lots of fun stuff here like a 3 minute video called, “Deciding How to Blog.” But my favorite is this, “55 Ways on How to Find Your Hidden Talent.” This guy’s got a book to back his stuff up. But entrepreneurs take note! He’s also got a unique spin on being a “toilet paper entrepreneur” that’s fun and factual. A winning combination that makes people interested, entertained and wanting to come back.

Creative Thursday – This is me being a bit selfish. I love this blog because it is creatively inspiring. It’s visually attractive and I love her tagline, “I believe everyone is creative.” It got me thinking, “Why didn’t I think of that?!” When your eyes get tired from reading too much text (sorry if it’s cause of me) then go here for much needed R&R for the eyes as in lots of eye candy!

74 Lime Lane – Kellie of 74 Lime Land had me at: 74 Ways to Be Inspired. Her series caught my eye because I’m all about the inspiration. Here, she interviews various artists on what they find inspiring to help creative entrepreneurs.

Martha Beck’s blog – If you like your inspiration handed to you quirky style, you’ll love my favorite author’s blog. Her videos are hilarious and yet always end up inspiring me.

That’s it for now! Have a glorious weekend!

What’s Up With You Lately and How You Can Use It to Inspire Others

Tweet Ah there’s something amiss. Did you see it? Have you felt it? It’s you. Covered under a wave of insecurity and oblivion. Too busy to notice the “you” that’s in process. I was watching Oprah the other day and admiring the women who courageously […]

Getting in Touch With Your Inspiring Side

Getting in Touch With Your Inspiring Side

In my twenties, two things happened to me that put me on a road to publication and shifted me to a career I never thought I deserved or believed to be possible.

1. My poem was accepted by Blue Mountain Arts in 2004. When I was in my early-20’s I had a deeply hidden desire to be a writer. But I didn’t pursue it because a) I adopted my parents’ belief that a writer wasn’t a practical or even a real job that could be pursued b) I didn’t think I had it in me.

Though I denied it, I was moved to write. I used to write poems and little letters with drawings on them and leave them hidden for my mom, dad or grandparents to find. And I was still writing opinion pieces for my local newspaper, but up until then I never got paid for publication in a book. {This was my first real experience as a published writer.}

One day I was deeply touched by the selflessness and wisdom of my mother and all mothers-the way she taught me the little things as a child (brush your teeth, look both ways before you cross the street, etc.) and then the bigger things (how to love, etc.) as I got older. I wrote a quick poem, made a copy of it with our photo on it and framed it for her for Mother’s Day.

On a whim, I also sent it into a card company I admired.

Imagine my surprise when I received a letter saying it would be published in a calendar and a book! (more…)

The Blessings of Failure

The Blessings of Failure

Tweet Failure. It’s something I’ve written a lot about. I wrote about here, for example. I write about it a lot because I have tons of experience at it. In fact, when my husband and I were racking our brain thinking up new article ideas […]
