Be Inspired Monday: Celebrating Our Veterans


Happy Veterans Day!




Today is Veterans Day and there is so much to celebrate about this day.
Whether you are volunteering, spending time with family...we need to remember that
without our Veterans and the sacrifices they make on a daily basis...
we wouldn't have all the freedoms we have.

Today let us be thankful for all they do and will always do for our country...
and for us individually.
Be inspired this Monday to say: God Bless Our Veterans

Be Inspired Monday: The Merciful Lord

this morning i was inspired by another blogger’s post.

as human beings when a tragedy happens in the media or life when then to question the existence of Lord and if really he is a merciful God as devoted Christians make everyone believe. Most of us heard the tragedy of Colorado and some questioned if our Lord is truly that merciful.

i just want you to read this lady’s blog entry because it is inspirational.

July 22 – a note of explanation

I’ve tried to leave this post just as it was originally written because it was a heartfelt response after a very traumatic experience.  But I’m sometimes clumsy with words and even when I think I am writing clearly, there is always the reader who doesn’t know my heart or doesn’t hear the words the way they were intended.

I feel as though a few people have taken what I said and twisted it. When I wrote my post on Friday, I had a grand total of eleven blog  followers. Yes, eleven. I generally post on facebook and have had a loyal little group of readers that numbered thirty or so. That is who I generally write for.  People who know me  know that I dislike talking on the telephone. I’d pretty much rather clean a toilet than spend time on the phone. I am not a speaker. After the shooting,  friends and family began calling. I knew I had to let people know what happened and that we were safe.  Since I also really wanted to respond to the people that were blaming God for this tragedy,  I wrote the blog post and put it up on facebook. I never in a million years would have anticipated the readers to skyrocket past a million , including strangers from all over the world. Only God could do that.

Be Inspired Monday: Failing Happens...

This past Friday i took a licensing test for work and failed it.
I can't remember the last time i failed since i've be an adult.
It brought me back to high school
and failing several math tests before i could graduate!

The HORROR!!!

And i've dwelled on it the last several days but today
i am inspired to remember that Failing Happens because it is part of life...
we are not going to PASS every test we take...
because that is not how Life is intended to be lived. 
We are going to have successes and failures. 
We are going to pass some tests and fail others. 

 It is what happens after failing the test that matters the most...

Be Inspired this Monday to take failing as an opporunity to begin again!

On Beauty: The Benefits, Joys and Dangers of the Sunlight

A Guest Post


Summer is approaching and you will likely be spending a lot of time out in the sun. There is nothing like spending a day outside soaking up the rays. However, you do have to be careful that you wear proper sun protection. Many people think that the sun is only harmful. The sun CAN be harmful, but it also does a body good. Here are the best benefits and worst dangers of the sun.

1) Full Circle

Let's face it. Without the sun, we would not be here. It is in charge of our days, seasons, weather, time- it is everything to us! The sun to the Earth is like gas to a car. You cannot have one without the other. We pretty much would not exist without it, so remember that when you’re complaining about your hot car seats.

2) Healthy Glow
Sure, people tell you that the sun is bad for you. They say wear at least fifty SPF when outside during the summer. However, it does not help to have a little healthy glow. A tan makes you feel prettier, healthier and happier. Stick with an SPF of 30. That way, you can enjoy a little tanning every so often to make your skin look radiant.

3) Cancer & Aging
That being said, do not go overboard with the tan! You want to maintain a good layer of protection on your skin, especially in the water, due to the reflection. If you do not wear sunscreen every day, then you run the risk of skin cancer and pre-mature ageing. Wrinkles are not attractive on twenty-somethings. If you do not like the idea of wasting your precious time putting on sunscreen every morning, then get a concealer with SPF. Then, you are killing two birds with one stone!

4) Happiness
Do you ever notice how much happier you feel when the sun is out and shining? It turns out that this is more scientific than you realize. After a long gloomy winter, your skin is literally waiting to see the sun. In return, the sun's rays warm your skin and your body produces more serotonin and melanin. These are stimulants that make you happy! Serotonin is the natural high you feel when everything is going just right. People with SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder have a heightened state of depression during the winter. It is not until the summer when they feel better. This all thanks to the sun's rays!
Is it not better to be happy and tan than pale and sad? Just keep adequate sunscreen on and you will be all right. Also, if you are feeling depressed, head out into the sun to soak up that sunshine! The sun is our life source for a reason. Even if you don’t necessarily get darker, you can always tell when someone has spent time in the sun J

Be Inspired Monday: Just Remember…

 

few months ago we quoted Gandhi’s famous quote ‘Be The Change You want to See in the World.”

as we set ourselves the goal to become that change we need few more inspiration from the same man. perhaps these are not his own words but maybe his words inspired others to rewrite more inspirational quotes.

the first quote is ambiguous, i think it means change your pessimist outlook on life, BELIEVE in YOURSELF, don’t be doubtful of your abilities! 

we believe this place come become a forum where we can share our goals to make that change in the world, and work together as one to make it come true .

Be Inspired Monday and stay inspired this week!
