Have you ever taken a few minutes to marvel at how the different parts of our lives are all woven together? Sometimes we have very little to do with it. Sometimes it’s quite intentional. I was having difficulty finding inspiration for my blog posts. (My apologies to all of you who noticed my absence. Thanks for sticking with me.)
Since I committed to write Monday Motivation, I used that lack of inspiration as inspiration to encourage other writers – and myself – to Just Write! (The post will go live on Monday over at CES.)
I’ve belonged to A Round of Words in 80 Days for quite a while – and love it. Some members created the ROW80 Facebook group so we could further encourage one another. We also hang out at the #ROW80 hashtag over on Twitter.
Because of our ROW80 check-ins, I realized many writers also have fitness goals. Therefore, I’ve formed the ROW80 Fitness group over on Facebook. I was going to make it a closed group, but when one of my friends asked to join, I changed my mind. If you and/or your friends want to join us for some fitness tips and lots of encouragement, I’d love it.
As you know, I am a labour doula. I hope to post in that category more often. Plus, back in August, I formed Developing Doulas, another FB group. This one I kept closed. If you’re interested in joining, just let me know.
Social networking can be a colossal waste of time and even a platform for lashing out and hurting others. However, it can be a great way to get to know people we wouldn’t otherwise have met and to stay in touch with those we can’t always get together with.
I love how so many people who wouldn’t recognize me if we passed on the street have encouraged me and cheered me on. I’m also incredibly honoured to be able to encourage family, friends, and those I don’t know personally. Too cool!
So, if you’re interested in sharing how the various elements of your life are interconnected, I invite you to leave a comment. If you have an idea that you’d like to expand into a full-length post, touch base with me about writing a guest blog.
That’s another thing I want to get busy with today: writing posts for those who have approached me and following up with those who have expressed interest in guest blogging here.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I encourage you to look for the wondrous interconnections in your life while you do.
