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.
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.
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.
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!
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.”
This week was rocked by the Las Vegas shootings. This poem for the tragedy 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.
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.
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? ♥
Thank you so much for writing about me! 💫💕 The blogging community is really awesome!
Thank you so much for the mention on your weekly round up!! Janelle and myself are only delighted it made the cut!! Thank you for sharing the post xxxx
Dear Christy, your kindness is huge :)
You’re such an inspiration! Great post🌸
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.
You’re so helpful. I like that it’s a natural remedy. Thank you!
Have a fabulous weekend!
You, too! I hope you’re feeling better!
Thanks! I’m feeling soooo much better :)
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!
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! ♡♡
I hope you feel better soon, Christy, and thanks for the uplifting post. xo
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
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. :-)
I hope you recover very very soon Christy!🙂 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!!☺☺☺☺♥️
And….I love Michelle Obama💕
I appreciate the advice – and it means even more knowing it hails from India and your caring home, Swati <3 I'm feeling SO MUCH better now :)
Aw! That is so sweet of you Christy! You are so humble and friendly with your comments🙂🙂 I really appreciate that💕💕💕🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂
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
Definitley! I got exactly the same vibe from you. That’s why I asked for your insta handle, to knw you better🙂🙂 But its great we can communicate here🙂🙂BIG hugs back at you💕💕💕💕
Get well soon, Christy! 😀❤️ Thanks for sharing these with us, inspiring and interesting as always…prayers indeed for all those in Las Vegas. Hugs xx

It’s lovely to see you, as always, Norah! I’m happy to report that my cold is almost completely gone now ~ So I’m glad to be back xx
I’m pleased you’re feeling better, Christy. Take time to recuperate fully though. :)
