With all the hustle and bustle of daily life and chaos, I took a little bit of time this week to visit some of my favorite blogs and read. Some of these blogs I haven't visited in quite awhile. You know, it's just how it goes. I can't always visit daily, or even weekly, no matter how much I would like to do just that.
Anyway, some of the places I visited had reads that were just too good not to share. So here they are...
It's incredible how one person's story can really reach out and have an impact on others. I'm not so great at sharing so much personal information - online or offline. I'm way too good at keeping things all bottled up inside, even though I know I shouldn't. When I hop around to different blogs and read the writings of amazing people, it really inspires me. To be inspired, to be moved, to know that everyone has a story to tell and struggles to overcome - that means something, and it can be a powerful thing. It can also be a reminder for us to be grateful. Click to read, and be ready for a gut-wrenching, heart-warming story of How To Save A Life by Sandy from An Honest Sinner.
Finding a healthy work/life balance is really hard to do. Many bloggers and small business owners are frequent users of social media. Social media may have started out for personal use and intentions, but it's come a very long way. Social media and the online world can consume a person. When your work involves the internet, websites and social media, it's really difficult to distinguish the fine lines of work and home, especially when you work at home. Melissa of Bubby and Bean shares her deep Thoughts on the Effect of Blogging and Social Media on Being Present.
If you're a regular reader, you know that I'm pretty big on doing my best to spread the social good. I love charity work and supporting great causes. When I visited my buddy Shane over at Sea Salt Secrets (aside from suffering from wanderlust - happens each time I visit) and learned about Red My Lips, I knew I would have to share it.
And there we have it. These are my top three good reads from this week. You can always visit my Pinterest board for Blog Posts to Check Out, where I've pinned lots of good reads (these three included). There are some random bits of awesomeness there too, but mostly it's just a bunch of good reads. =0)
