Weekly Inspiration Roundup, Volume 4


Yahoo, it’s Friday, and you know what that means… It’s almost the weekend! I hope you all have a great time. Friday is also the day I roll out the weekly inspiration roundup from across the blog world. Let’s see which posts are in today’s uplifting menu:

Loretta Blogs about Serving Yourself

At the blog Countdown to 60, Loretta Sayers shares an intimate moment with readers as she begins her post titled How do you serve yourself? with the line, “growing up I was taught early on that women were second to men.”

As a feminist, this was tough for me to read but also part of acknowledging many women’s lives historically were largely spent fulfilling the wishes of the man, who came first. Now Loretta is counting down the days until age 60 and linking how she grew up as a contributing factor in her current struggles with putting herself first. Behaviors aren’t easy to change, are they?

Inspiring reads from bloggers

A Letter from Mick Canning

It is a short blog post from Mick Canning, but that does not make it any less powerful. In A Short Letter, blogger Mick provides statements that invoke respect, counteract bullying, and scream for equal rights across race, gender, religion and other features. It is a must-read post, in my opinion, for its subject matter and also its ability to show bloggers that sometimes less is more.

Changing the World: Damyanti Biswas’ Post

Damyanti Biswas asks us, As an Individual, What have You done to Turn the World into a Better Place? In this post at daily (w)rite, she shares the story of two women who came together to invent a machine that recycles plastic into bio-fuel.

Medha and Shirish N. Phadtare began with boiling plastic in a pressure cooker, and over time this grew into a self-fueling machine and process. Wow, talk about inspirational women! Let’s do our part to be a positive change in the world too, whether it be in an environmental capacity or otherwise.

Self-Love and Blogger B

She goes by the name “B” in the blogging world, over at Blossoming Mother. B shares intriguing thoughts on Practising Kindness to Self. She admits to putting pressure on herself and that now as a mom she wants her child to have self-love. So, it’s about being the example you want to show your children. This involves being “less harsh” to yourself, explains B. As I sometimes say, we’re all a work in progress.

Rhythm In Life Provides A Poetic Tribute

Ah yes, many of you know that poetry is close to my heart. I write and read it regularly. There are great poetry blogs out there! In the poem Mystery woman at the Rhythm In Life blog, there are stunning words about a certain woman…

I won’t spoil who the “woman” being written about in the lines is as her name is unveiled within the poem. I will say the female subject in the poem is one of my idols! It is a lovely ode to a woman who the poet describes as “wise, giving and forgiving.”

A Ladies Heart on Human Trafficking Survivors

Human trafficking sadly is still an issue. Yes, it’s 2017, and I’m still writing that. Human trafficking survivors need assistance, and you can help them by checking out this informative post by A Ladies Heart.

The campaign supports A21, an organization determined to abolish slavery who rescues women, girls, and boys from human trafficking. Please check out the blog post to learn more about how you can help the cause via this organization.

Chill Out with Emzynelson

We all are looking to relax more, right? Time flies and, well, R&R doesn’t always get slotted into the day. But that’s got to change, especially with the weekend around the corner. So hopefully you will enjoy this Chill Music Playlist from Emzynelson. It includes music from Lorde, Ed Sheeran, Melanie Martinez, and more. Let’s sit back and… chill.

On that (musical) note, happy Friday all xxoo

Love Christy
