Healing and the Two Sides of Inspiration

Annah ElizabethUncategorized5 Comments

Happy Thursday-Friday, Journeyer! I had a different topic slated for today, but then I received an exciting comment from blogger Live by Surprise. I’m surprised, humbled, and oh so happy to be have been nominated as a Very Inspirational Blogger this week!

Liv’s comments on my blog posts are always one of my week’s happy highlights and I’m just plum tickled pink to be included in her list. I am inspired by her story to rise above a painful divorce and ongoing troubles with her ex; it takes a great deal of heart, hope, and healing to keep moving forward in the face of such adversity. In the same way she says I inspire her, she inspires me. That is the two sides of inspiration, Journeyer, sometimes we are the inspirer and sometimes we are the inspired. Sometimes we do the carrying, and sometimes we are the carried. I’ve met so many kind, compassionate, and creatively genius people in this blogosphere! Please join me in sharing some of my favorites. The Rules: Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog. (check) Display the award logo (check) Nominate 15 (or so) other bloggers and provide a link where they may be found. Go to their blog, leave a comment to let them know they have been nominated. Mention three things that inspired you the most during the past few weeks. Wow…every blog I visit moves me in some way, and though I’m not able to read as much as I’d like, there are a few who I always enjoy hunkering down on my sofa to catch up with… An old favorite, and one of the first connections I made after I started blogging, DAWolf over at Daily Plate of Crazyhas her own smorgasbord going at her site; from fun to familiar, joyous to juicy, and everything in between, you’re sure to find something to stimulate your brain and tickle your fancy! Angela over at The Reluctant Grandmother inspires me in so many ways, but mostly in the way she’s moving through her grief journey with grace, hope, and happiness, encouraging others by sharing the richness of her grief and her healing… Midlife Boulevard. What can I say? Sharon and Ann are forces to be reckoned with. In a short period of time these two women have created an empire, a space that gives voice to a generation that is very different from our middle-aged predecessors. Carol Cassara always gives me something to reflect on or some adventure I can live vicariously in through her! Lana over at Two Teens and Their Mama has this gentle quality to her writing, a style that always manages to bring a sense of peace when I’m able to pop in and catch up on her latest stories. Pam Luttrell over at Over50Feeling40 has been transforming her life and inspiring countless others along the way, from her weekly I Matter column, to her weight loss success, to honing in on her brand, she’s got it all going on! I also love the way Glennon Melton of Momasteryis able to make us feel like she’s sitting in the room right next to me. I am in awe of her ability to draw readers in like long lost friends… There are others, Journeyer, but it’s now way past my bedtime. That alarm is going to sound might early! Finally…it’s now Friday evening and I’m able to put the finishing touches on this post and hit the submit button… Three things that have inspired me in the past few weeks? Commitment to myself: Continuing to carry on my weekly #HappyHappens column, managing to continue to squeeze in a second weekly post, finishing The Five Facets Philosophy brochures… Watching the girls behind this awesome eventbreak down barriers and spread such infectious enthusiasm!

  1. Thanks so much for this delightful mention! (I have been swamped and I”m nursing a sprained back… Forgive me for being so out of touch.)

    Again, my thanks – and big hugs!


    1. So happy you’re swamped! So bummed for your back troubles… 🙁 As you can see, I tend to always be running one or two or five steps behind, myself! lol

      Keeps us young and from getting bored, right?

      Hope you’re finding some relief for that back! Hugs back at you!! 🙂
