5:30am & inspired…

Good Wednesday morning.  Two missions today: sharing inspiring posts of the week from several of my favorite bloggers and blogger award nominations.

In the bucket of put-your-mind-to-it-and-get-R-dun is Lesley Carter @ Bucket List Publications with her post “I Knew I Was Going To Succeed! Creating a Success Blog.” “…When I first started Bucket List Publications a year ago, I knew that it was going to be a success! I am driven; I am passionate; I am a dreamer and I do everything in my power to make those dreams come true. Life is worth living, after all, and I’m making it happen…When I started blogging, I heard people say that it would be impossible to break into the field and be a success. Why would I even waste my time? Why would I want to be another “blogger”? Well this is what I have to say to all of those skeptics. 8,432,439 views speak for themselves! 36,111 followers agree!

Keith @ Keith The Green’s Blog with his post titled: Lighten Up, A New Beginning. “I wrote about making one change per month in our lives a little while ago, as we need time to make changes in our routines permanent. Since I started that one, I recently added being observant about the people I pass on the streets, if they look lost, I will ask if they need directions. A few have been tourists, another was an elderly gentleman who it turned out was looking for an address that was part of a larger building, he was having trouble as he had forgotten his glasses that morning. My point is that not all our acts have to be ones that change society, for the people we help, it has made a difference, now imagine if everyone did one more act of kindness everyday. To borrow a line from a Ray Charles song; “What a wonderful world it would be.” 

Another wonderfully crafted and stop-and-make-me-think post by Jeff @ A View From the Ledge with his postDigging In”: “…Writing and weeding are not that much different. There are times we swing the blade widely cutting with a force bordering on violence – and there are other times when we work surgically with a finer tool carefully extracting the word or the phrase without disturbing the surrounding growth. There are other times when the weed is so entangled, that we have to take bits of the healthy plant with it…

Anita Mac @ TravelDestinationBucketList with her post “On the Road Again” – Anita is doing something that I’ve dreamed of doing…”SHE’S WALKING THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO.”
