I'm a guest story over at LifeUnity! (A small interruption in romance week)

ROMANCE - To court or woo romantically; treat with ardor or chivalrousness; a strong fascination or enthusiasm for something. [Romance week starts here. Click for this week's Bliss Initiatives.]

(Inspiration Art from Free to Be Me site)

I interrupt this week's Romance discussion for this brief announcement:

My dear bloggy friend, Lisa over at Life Unity, has deemed "my story" worth sharing! 

For those of you who don't know Lisa, she is an immensely creative and passionate woman who has taken an idea, The Strength to Be Me and is on a mission to inspire all of us to be our best me. Over on her fascinating site she shares her own journey in her LifeUnity blog, offers physical strength training tips and tools in Move Me area of her site and creativity boosters in Create Me area. It is like getting three great blogs in one! Whatever your current focus is Lisa is endeavoring to provide you with the tools to take you/us to the next level to be our best me.

Another part of her site she is devoting to guest stories, where she says:

There are universal truths, however fluid they may be. People across the ages have real-ized them and expressed them in different ways - through science, different religions, poetry, or simply a way of living. These different ways are truth stories told in different languages...each just as important as the next to be shared and heard.
And it is there dear readers, she has interviewed me and offered up my life's "strength training" lessons to be shared! More about me then you may ever have cared to know but possibly interesting too. Stop on by to hear my thoughts on the divine as well as very human aspects of living and playing here on planet earth and even if my story doesn't interest you, do check out Lisa's site which in many ways, is already all about YOU!

  7. I was wondering how you came up with, or where you found your "virtues." I think this is a really great idea you have going for you blog!

  8. Jessica, Thanks for asking! When I started the blog I did a little series about how I got started. You can start at the beginning by clicking the link to my Introductory post in the sidebar. This post is specifically about how I came up with the virtues I picked. I call what I am doing here an "Everyday Game" and if you think it sounds like something fun you might be interested in trying, click on the "Play an Everyday Game" link at the top of the blog. It gives you some idea of how I did it and gives options for changing things up to make your own game.

    Finally, and I am breaking some BIG news here, I am in the process of starting a new blog called <a href='>Everyday Mommy</a> and I am just getting started with what I am calling my virtues of great parenting. Come and by to see how I do it if you are interested!
