I header over to Nesting Place and read more about it...and I decided that this would be a fun thing to do..and maybe a great way to get back into blogging. I knew pretty quick that I wouldn't be doing anything deep or making too big of a commitment to myself....but just wanted to do 31 days of something fun...and see where it takes me!
Obviously..I'm a day behind already. BUT...would it really be me if I wasn't? Ha.
Basically..the plan is to post an inspiring image or two everyday...and maybe write something related. That is one of the great things about blogging/pinterest/tumblr/instagram...etc....there is SO much creativity and inspiration out there ready to be soaked up and shared.
Recipes, fashion, quotes, scripture, pictures, fitness, health, friends, design...SO MUCH INSPIRATION.
I just love this. It's kind of like a recipe for a good day. I think it's a great image to kick of the 31 days Inspired. This is about 31 days of getting and being inspired...and I can't think of a better way to do that than to just HAVE A GOOD DAY!
If you are a reader of my blog...you know that every month, I have the best intentions and create a goal list for the month. Sometimes I cross several things off that list...and sometimes...I cross off only 1 or 2 things.
Thankfully, I'm not the type of person that gets too discouraged when the majority of my list seems to make it to the next month's list, and on and on. I just love lists, and love the idea of trying to be a better "me" this month than I was last month. I AM A DREAMER. Constantly. I think that is why I love blogs and pinterest and similar sites.
Life is really full of possibilities. I never want to stop dreaming about the future...about the things I want to do and see and cook and create. About the clothes I want to wear, the family I want to raise, the house I want to decorate, the me I want to be.
None of this is to say that I'm not satisfied with my life. I am. I love everything about it...and am grateful for every piece of it (even the ugliest pieces). But, I also know that I don't ever want to just say "well this is as good as it's ever gonna be".
There does have to be a balance between dreaming and living. I'll be the first to admit that I could be accused of being more a dreamer than a "doer". Sometimes my head is so far in the clouds that I miss what is going on right in front of me. That is something I hope to work on the next 31 days. I want to be inspired, sure...but I also want to LIVE INSPIRED.
And maybe even inspire others along the way.
