Being an inspiration and motivation is the best gift you can give to each other.
It is the primary focus of my blog.
I always hope for my post to flow effortlessly in a tone that inspires and motivates all of you.
I am the same way in real life. I treat everyone with the respect that all is possible because where there's a will, there's a way. And I never count anyone short on their capabilities. I believe this to be the best of me. And being this way makes me believe in the best of you.
I teach my oldest to befriend everyone at his school. I tell him stories of when I was school age and noticed certain people being rejected...those were the people I made a point to talk with, to smile at, to wave to. He has witnessed many a time that an outcast was entertained by me or comforted by me. I try my hardest to always be open minded and always remember that I know no ones true struggles. My senior quote was 'never take shortcuts, transgressing the rights of others, for personal gain'. I still do my best to live by that some 15 years later.
This past week I have felt a need to organize my thoughts and funnel them into a direction that would better serve my blog (you), better present myself to my readers and centralize my inspiration behind blogging.
Organizing these thoughts has been uber hard. In the quiet moments I get to sit at the screen and type, I am often times distracted by Google reader, or text, or my twitter pop ups. Tonight, I was grateful for one of those interruptions. It helped me reel it all in. It helped me present one idea and lead to a pretty cool linky. The purpose of it is way cool and the projection expands into a focus I share. It's simple name is Desire to Inspire. Created by Amanda at A Royal Daughter. It's background info is here. And it's current link up is here.
When I choose to sponsor blogs...it's been by long thought and/or sheer impulse from being enlightened by a specific post. Upon choosing to click on that little Passionfruit buy now link....I then fill out a generic form asking what the purpose is behind my blog....every.single.time....I write to motivate and inspire.
So...I motivate you to to get creative with your healthy eating.
And...I hope all my posts and this first salad pic inspire you!
We all know salads are a go-to meal for lunch or dinner. Shoooot, some Paleo chompers eat salad for breakfast. Today I'll post my picture of my lunch salad with quick 'script and next week around this time I will post a collection of all the past days salad creations. If you follow me on twitter you'll see what salad I create each day with the hashtag #whatsonyoursalad.
Snap a picture of your salad creations and share them with us next week! You don't have to eat a salad everyday, but girls it wouldn't hurt. Your pictures don't have to be fancy. In fact, the post itself should serve as the main inspiration for us to have more healthy options//creative salads!
Life's a lot easier when we have choices....diets and healthy living styles are no different.
You seriously can't fail at this #whatsonmysalad idea :)
So get your salad spinning on and your thinking caps pulled tight. Show us your collage of salads next week!
