Fighting the Blahs

I was just looking over some web stats and saw that someone found me by google searching "finding inspiration to fight the blahs." Isn't that something? It got me to thinking that really, that's one of the reasons I blog...not to fill others with inspiration, but to make myself reflect and take notice of the things around me.

My blog stalking does the same thing...it helps me to witness other people's journeys and take note of the wonderful things going on in their lives.

I'm so fortunate to have a beautiful family who loves each other and the Lord and beautiful friends who complete my "urban family." When I feel sad or blah, I ALWAYS have someone to turn to, and when I hear stories about people whose lives aren't as blessed, it breaks my heart a little.

Today, finding inspiration to fight the blahs is going to be something I focus on...I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for beauty in the outdoors, actively engage and listen to the people I speak with, and enjoy a rowdy session of Wii with some of my best friends. I am blessed and today I will do everything in my power to remember that!

For more inspiration, visit The Inspired Room...a blog favorite of mine!

Blogging is a great "outlet"! I agree. Going for a walk helps too. Wish I had gone for one today, but I have a sick kiddo at home!

Enjoy your day!

Wow! Just goes to show that it does indeed pay off to check out those crazy stats we all monitor for our blog. What a fun discovery. I especially liked the way that you took that information and turned it into something really special and great.

The world needs more positive people like you!

Glad that you joined SITS.

Today I went to my BFF's grandmothers funeral. I learned so many things about her I never knew and left with understanding better who my BFF was.

I looked around at the people I've grown to know and love. The things we've gone through. It was a nice gentle reminder of those I don't see everday and the many great memories I share with them.

It was a blah day, but I shared this day with many people whom I admire, love and respect.

Just stopping by from SITS...saying hello and welcome :)

Fighting the blahs. . .isn't that what chocolate is for?! :)
And blog surfing!
I stumbled here from PW--the Liz Lemon quote caught my attention--(your comment was near mine.)
