Have you ever noticed how some things are right under your nose, but you can’t see them?
This week, I encountered that problem.
I’ve been on my weekly hunt for my “New Blogger Of The Week” (NBOTW). I visited most of my usual haunts, did Google searches, clicked on dozens of links, got so deep into cyberspace I didn’t know how I got there, but I was still no closer to finding my NBOTW.
I decided to step away from the pressure, and make myself a glass of ice tea.
With tea in hand, I looked at my homepage and decided to check up on Harmony. It was there I found this new blogger.
She’s a writer, and it shows.
She likes daffodils, so I pick her a bouquet (from Flickr)
She wrote a post and named it: Masterminds and Daffodils
Buried in her archives, she shares one of my favorite poems of all time. It’s written by Rudyard Kipling and it’s titled “If”. It starts with these words:
If you can keep your head when all about you
are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
For anyone who has never heard this poem, it’s a awesome. It’s well worth the read. I printed it to use for inspiration.
This gal is full of enthusiasm, and she’s sharing her secrets to stay motived, in her post titled:Catch On Fire But Don’t Burn The Laundry aka “tips for getting out of bed on fire”
Read her blog, and you’ll find her enthusiasm to be contagious.
Her name is Wendi, and her blog is “Life’s Little Inspirations”. Her tag line is: “The thoughts, ideas, attitudes and people that inspire us to make a difference…or sometimes just make it through the day.”
Start each day with Wendi, and it’s bound to be a great one.
Please join me in welcoming Wendi to the community at BWAB.
Don’t forget to hop over to her blog for your daily dose of inspiration.
