Everyone is posting their holiday content filled with good tidings, recipes, parties, and gift ideas. I love it! But I am uninspired to blog about the same things, as I think of all the festivities we have coming up, as my husband finishes his last final of the semester tonight [!!!]
So instead, I thought I’d share some people who inspire me to do more, and do it all better.
+ My best friend, Amy. Ames is more like another sister than friend. We have been through so so sooo much together. We get “it”, and for as similar as we are, we have differences as well. I love that through our changes, and differences she is still the chick I know I’ll end up with in the old home when our men can’t keep up with us anymore. She’s my hetero life partner, for sho’.
She also lost more than 60lbs (I don’t know the exact amount), after kicking cancer’s ass (sarcoma, if you want to know). She ran her 2nd half marathon this past weekend. She wishes she had done better, because aren’t we all our own worst critics? Homegirl completed her SECOND half marathon consisting of 13.1 miles. I don’t care if you can run that or not. I can’t, so anyone who can impresses me, greatly. Especially with how hard she had to work to get there!
Amy inspires me to improve my overall health, among other things.
+ My husband. Oh, this man. We have been through some battles, and come out stronger with each one. This guy gets up every day at 5am to let the pups out, and I sleep in. He jumped on board with me when I suggested we eat clean and run. He kept at it even after I fell off the wagon, again, and again. He works full-time, goes to law school, studies hard. He’s a legit adult, and we’ve come a long way from the two ‘kids’ who met at a bar whilst downing Jaegar Bombs, though I’ll admit I do miss those days sometimes.
Jason inspires me to do more, and complain less.
+ I actually knew Krystal in high school. Lost touch, and then we re-connected as we both planned our weddings in 2011. Krystal blogged. I thought it was neat. I started this blog shortly after getting married and picked her brain all the time. Fast-forward, and Krystal is killing it! She works as a full time blogger, full-time momma and wife, and I have no clue how she posts as much as she does. HOW DO YOU FIND THE TIME?! She also started a new site, Bloggers Get Social, an accountability group for busy bloggers. She is super knowledgeable, and her hard work has definitely paid off!
Krystal inspires me to grow my blog, and do more.
Kerry inspires me to do more for others.
There are so many people who inspire me on a daily basis; my parents, my sister (the new mom), other bloggers, people I have never met…sometimes, life gets too hectic for me to reflect the way I would like to. Sometimes, I get pissed thinking of all the things I have to do. I whine, I complain, I am cranky, and ungrateful. It is all so silly, and often times irrelevant to the big picture. I think it’s normal, and I think I was way past due in taking a moment to really think about just a few of the many people who inspire me.
WHO inspires you?
