I love to read blog posts that make me think. You know the kind. You leave the page contemplating what you’ve just read and sometimes the words motivate you to take action.
The following two blogs always leave me wondering. Thinking. Hence, they’ve made the list for (Not So) New Blogs Of The Week (NBOTW).
In no particular order they are:
* Do you drag yourself out of bed? Not looking forward to what the day holds?
* Have you put aside childhood or teenaged dreams in an effort to get on living life?
* Do you think that you should be doing something else but aren’t quite sure what it is?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then yes, you suffer from Someday Syndrome. Specifically you suffer from the strain called Someday My Ship Will Come In.
Alex performs experiments on his volunteer “Lab Rats” who suffer from “Someday Syndrome” and then posts the results in future articles. Throughout his blog Alex sprinkles his “someday lessons”; great quotes which are well worth contemplating.
2) “Sources of Insight” by J.D. Meier.
When I read J.D.’s post titled: Lessons Learned From Peaceful Warrior, the lessons he listed prompted me to print the page. Where else can you find dozens of “one liners” that nail it, spot on?
In this post, the lessons are, in part:
# There are no ordinary moments
# A Warrior acts; only a fool reacts.
# What do you do if you can’t do what you were born to do? Everything has a purpose — it’s up to you to find it.
# Make every move about the move — that one moment in time.
# Don’t fall into the trap — If only I had this, I’d be … If only … , I’d get to be happy.
# If you don’t get what you want, you suffer. If you get what you want, you still suffer.
# You control you. Master you.
# Don’t pin your success on outcomes.
# The people that are the hardest to love, probably need it the most
Aren’t those great lessons? By clicking on the post title you’ll have access to the rest of the article.
Both J.D. and Alex are frequent visitors to Blogging Without A Blog and can often be found in the comment section. For those of you have missed visiting them, I guarantee, you won’t be disappointed. Take time to dig through their archives for many great gems.
Welcome again Alex and J.D.
Enjoy your reign as (Not So) New Blogs Of The Week.
