Words Along the Way – #1


“Knowing that there is a creative principle that reacts to that which I entertain in thought, I now establish in my thinking an attitude of expectancy of good things. I let go of the limitations of the past and live with an enthusiastic expectancy of the good that will encounter today.” ~ excerpt from Creative Ideas by Ernest Holmes

Use this as a daily affirmation. Try it for a week and see how it changes your outlook on things. When negative and limiting thoughts come, remind yourself of this excerpt and realize that those thoughts are not worth entertaining. If your thoughts have a creative force behind them, then do you really want to create more negativity?


The Connections and Inspiration Award

Connections and Inspiration.

So Momma E. from “My Magnificent Mess” had nominated me for this Connections and Inspiration award and I am finally getting back to to pass it along as I said that I would. Here is the original post from Momma E. I know, I know; its been awhile. Sometimes I am slow to get back to things on my to do list. Perfect I am not.

Here’s the deal. In order to pay it forward, I need to create a New Blogging Award and give it to 3 or more other bloggers with whom I truly feel that connection. The rules to accept this award that Momma E. put forth are as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you, and write a short post about blogging/connections/inspiration (one, two or all three)

2. Nominate at least 3 other bloggers you feel connected to and inspired by. People who have influenced you , your writing, or maybe even just something you read by them that resonated with you. Or, somebody who gave you a different viewpoint that made you stop and think. (that proverbial kick in the pants you may or may not need – but that gives you pause)

3. Copy and Paste the relevant portions of this post into your own nominations blog- and post.

4. Let those you nominated know.

5. Sit back and feel the love.

Since I started on this journey, I have come across many other bloggers and I am amazed by how many are on fascinating journeys of their own. As few I started to follow and some I just check in on now and then. I am still getting the hang of this whole blogging thing, but it is amazing to see all of these incredible blogs.

For this award I just picked a few from my list of usual ones that I read. Here are my nominations for my Inspiration Award, and a brief note why:

  • IStopForSuffering – This is a blog dedicated to spreading love, kindness and positivity. I love the inspirational posts that she writes here.
  • Evan at TheBetterManProjects – He is on an inspirational journey and his words are very moving.
  • Eva at the Mental Health Blog – She is self described as someone who had overcome depression, anxiety, and eating disorder in her own life. She has a wealth of interesting and inspiring things on her blog.
  • Brittany at Living Thoreauly – I love Brittany’s spirit and view on life. She is fearless in her quest and I admire her for that.

Check out their blogs and I hope you find enjoyment in their writing like I have.
