Today is day twelve of my 31 day Ultimate Blog Challenge.
I feel like I have been pumping out the blog posts. At one point, I had two scheduled to post on their own, and on the proper day. While I have several epic posts brewing about aromatherapy, wigs and sex after breast cancer, I did not have a post ready for today.
Finding Blog Post Inspiration
Then yesterday, late in the afternoon, there was a knock on the door. A few moments later, Shane presented me with a white box and the excitement-inducing red letters that spell out SendOutCards on the side. There are few things I enjoy more than receiving one of these white boxes!
Not only did I received a lovely gift, I also received today’s blog post inspiration!
You see, inspiration can come from anywhere. You just need to keep your eyes and ears open.
For example, as I was chopping up the ingredients for our traditional Sunday morning breakfast casserole, I thought, “Gee, I should do a breakfast casserole tutorial post.” The casserole is in the oven and will be ready just about the time I am done typing up this post and editing the photos. Casseroles are fabulous.
If you join the Ultimate Blog Challenge, you will receive a daily email with topic prompts.
Hope, Strength & Courage, Pink Ribbon Bracelet
Back to the white box. Inside was a gorgeous “Hope, Strength & Courage, Pink Ribbon Bracelet,” a gift from Diane Walker, one of my MLM heroes.
In addition to the pink ribbon heart charm, there are three silver word charms that say hope, strength and courage. These are the three character traits that every champion possesses.
“Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large.” – Wikipedia
I choose to be resolute in my convictions. My optimism goes beyond hope. I know only good comes into my life.
Strength is “the quality that allows someone to deal with problems in a determined and effective way.” – Merriam-Webster
I choose to take on each challenge knowing the outcome will be in my favor.
“Courage is the ability and willingness to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation.” – Wikipedia
I choose to laugh in the face of fear, laugh in the face of pain, laugh in the face of danger, laugh in the face of uncertainty and blow a giant raspberry in the face of intimidation.
Great timing! The breakfast casserole is ready. Time for me to eat and for you to chime in. Where do you find inspiration? What character traits do you have that result in positive and productive outcomes? Leave a comment below.
