Happy Holidays! Weekly Inspiration Roundup Vol. 24


I wish you an amazing holiday time! You all continue to inspire me to continue blogging and sharing words. I wake up with a smile and reading your blog posts helps me to maintain that cheerful outlook. May you and your family have a blessed time ahead β™₯

Here are the latest inspirational posts I’ve read on your blogs. If you need a bit of a pick-me-up today and over the next week then hopefully these reads will help.

Healthy Obsessions

The New Year is approaching, and for many of us it’s a time to reflect on how to replace bad habits with good ones. Did you know there are healthy obsessions? Yghanime at Health & Wellness: The Good Energy Blog recently wrote about some of them, including loving yourself more and feeling more energized. Read more about the positive behaviors at the inspirational blog post.

Ladies Who Motivate Me

Recently, author and friend D.G. Kaye launched Twenty Years: After “I Do” and I was so excited for her! Then I read her post of thanks to Tina Frisco and Sally Cronin for their continued support of her work and their features of her new book. All of these women are marvelous writers and strong women who motivate me to keep at the writing life. I’m grateful for such wonderful female role models!

Interview with a Nutritional Health Coach

I stopped by the blog Simply Chrissy recently and read an interview with Loralin Engal, an integrative nutrition health coach. In this Q&A, she provides tips for managing eczema and explains how this skin condition can affect self-esteem. The read about how to feel confident with eczema and live more fully is a great one.

Letting Go, One Step at a Time

At the Crushing Walls blog, Kate Dawson writes about books, movies, and inspirational topics like the one in her post 11 Steps To Letting Go. She is open and honest in this post that explains how she has been able to heal, and she explains that she hopes to help others by sharing about what has been helpful for her. Steps for letting go include educating yourself and starting to renew your life.

Recipe Time: Breakfast Smoothie

Eating better is a common New Year’s resolution. Great timing, therefore, for me to come across this Healthy Breakfast Smoothie blog post from SKD at Aromas and Flavors from my kitchen. This is a blog I love for its wonderful recipes! This particular smoothie combines apples, dates, and nuts. It is easy to make in just 5 minutes!

Goodbye 2017… Soon

Jill Weatherholt is Saying Goodbye to 2017 at her self-titled blog with an inspirational blog post that I want to share here for its sweet messages. She writes that this year has gone quickly and has had its ups and downs but that through it all we’ve continued to support one another. Now that is a reason to celebrate as we enter a New Year! I hope you follow Jill’s blog and enjoy her friendship as much as I do.

A Sweet Christmas Story

I leave you with this special, true Christmas story from Trini Lind at Tales from the Fairies. May the words bring you joy, and you think of them the next time you see a lovely decorated Christmas tree. If you celebrate Xmas, I hope you have a wonderful time β™₯
