Weekly Inspiration Roundup Vol. 13


Lucky or unlucky #13? Given the cold that doesn’t seem to want to let go of this body of mine, I’d be compelled to say unlucky. But then again it has forced me to take time for myself, and that’s a blessing. It is a reminder that, yes, I need self-care. Hence this post being a day late!

Let’s enjoy the inspirational blog posts you’ve all written this week and rejoice in the good rather than dwelling on the bad. Turn off the news headlines for a few minutes and enjoy some uplifting reads with me.

Colline Brings Hope

In her blog post FMF Day 4: Hope, Colline discusses what hope means for us in today’s world. From healing the Earth to peace from war, there are so many things we hope for, explains Colline. What I enjoy is her astute realization that hope is not lost… And my hope is that we never lose it.

In the Here and Now with Jane

Jane Sturgeon talks about being in the here and now in her inspirational blog post. She explains that she chooses her light (figuratively and literally) – whether it be one that sparkles and is light or dark. Life is the same way, this blogger explains, and it is our choices that form the energy we feel and give to others.

Heart Health: Not Just a Man’s Disease

Love Your Heart Australia offers a powerful write with the blog post Not Just a Male’s Disease. While heart disease is often thought of specifically in terms of affecting men, it also is an illness that affects many women. While the statistics presented here are specific to Australia, women around the world would be wise to learn the message behind them. Let’s educate ourselves to help prevent heart attacks!

Lee’s Interview Tips

Are you on a job hunt? The interview is a major part of the process. If you land an interview, here are the top 5 interview tips from Lee Narraway. The advice includes preparing questions to ask the interviewer, dressing well, and using the “STAR method.”

Prayers for Las Vegas

This week was rocked by the Las Vegas shootings. This poem for the tragedyΒ comes from blogger Christina of seaofwordsx. As she explains, the world needs love now more than ever. Reach out to those you care about and tell them you love them today, not tomorrow.

Michelle Obama Tribute

Mrs S. LDN has a great guest post from Janelle of The Nelly Bean. This ode to Michelle Obama highlights the fabulous former First Lady’s triumphs and strengths. She’s is very witty and inspires people worldwide.

Kindness with Sunshinysa

This blog post from Sunshinysa is all about kindness, which we can never have too much of. I like her discussion of random acts of kindness, the quotes she includes, and the overall uplifting message here. It’s a good note to end this roundup post on, don’t you think? β™₯

      Ohhhh **so kind**

  5. CLEvangelism October 7, 2017

    Taking an oregano oil capsule every day will ward off colds (and sinus infections and allergies). Google “oregano oil benefits.” It may also help you kick this one. Feel better soon.

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      You’re so helpful. I like that it’s a natural remedy. Thank you!

    2. CLEvangelism October 12, 2017

      You’re welcome!

    3. Christy B October 13, 2017

      You, too! I hope you’re feeling better!

    5. Christy B October 13, 2017

      Thanks! I’m feeling soooo much better :)

  6. Teagan R. Geneviene October 7, 2017

    Ugh! Christy it’s absolutely miserable to have a cold. I’m sorry you have to deal with that. Please do be good to you.
    Even though you felt bad you still put together a lovely roundup and week.
    I choose to think 13 is a lucky number.
    Wishing you well. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      The roundup is one of the highlights of my week, Teagan, so it’s my pleasure to share it. I’m feeling much better today ~ Yahoooo! Hugging back without worry about infecting you with cold germs ;)

  7. Resa October 7, 2017

    Christy, hope you are recovering all the way! It took me 2 weeks to feel 90% better. Oil of oregano sure helped with the throat/ear thing. Now my computer is sick. Wish I could just spritz oil of oregano over it! β™‘β™‘

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      Resa, you’re the second person here to tell me about the powers of oregano! That simply cannot be ignored! I’m feeling so much better today. Really nice to get your well wishes. Hopefully your laptop – the new one – is feeling 100% today!

  8. Baydreamer October 7, 2017

    I hope you feel better soon, Christy, and thanks for the uplifting post. xo

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      Hi Lauren, you’re so sweet. Today I feel much more like “Christy” and for that I’m thankful. Hugs!

  9. shehannemoore October 7, 2017

    Christy, colds can be murder. I often think man has gone to the moon but failed to get a cure for the most common ailment. Get well. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      Hahaha the illusive cold! You’ve got that right, Shey ;) I’m almost fully recovered now and feeling so thankful for your being here xx

  10. Loretta October 7, 2017

    Thank you as always, for sharing Christy. Love finding other bloggers. And feel better! I’m glad you are taking your own advice and taking care of YOU. :-)

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

      Hi Loretta, yes I had to take my own advice for sure and rest up… Not as easy as it sounds to do. I’m pleased to say I’m almost fully recovered now ((skips around the house))

  11. Swati Awana October 8, 2017

    I hope you recover very very soon Christy!πŸ™‚ What we do in India is add half a spoon of haldi(turmeric) in a cup of hot milk and drink 3 times a day. Within one day you will feel better and you won’t have the aftermath of cold – chest congestion and cough!!☺☺☺☺β™₯️
    And….I love Michelle ObamaπŸ’•

    1. Christy B October 10, 2017

    3. Christy B October 13, 2017

      I feel the same way about YOUR comments, Swati! I have a feeling we’d be good friends in real life (outside of the digital realm) if we lived closer to one another :) BIG hugs <3

    4. Swati Awana October 14, 2017
