Inspiration, Anyone?

What inspires you? What makes you want to be better? Your best self possible?  I always love to hear about people doing what they love. Sometimes we don’t start off doing that, though, huh? Sometimes life gets in the way and bills are due and babies come and you find yourself in this crazy cycle of just making do.  Of just getting by. Of saying “when _____ happens, I’m going to….” Don’t do it. Don’t wait until “that day”.  You know it’s never going to happen if you do. Or maybe it will if you decide that this is that day. Start taking small steps. Write your ambitions down. Tell them to a friend.  Do whatever you need to do to not forget!

Right now, I’m totally in the world of adoption. I’ve been overwhelmed by the vast need in the world. Everywhere.  There are children without families, without homes, without food, without love. They’re everywhere.  It breaks my heart. What breaks yours?

Here are a few people I think you may love to get to know.  They encourage my heart!  Tiny Green Elephants (an adoption mama!)   Holley Gerth’s blog tells 2 stories today.  Love it!  Rachel Held Evans because she writes so well and has followed her passion for questioning the faith and being totally okay with that. And Em On A Mission. I think she’s 19 and she lives in Uganda. Because she knew she was supposed to.

That will do for now. Just keep pursuing what He’s put in your heart!
