This week I am celebrating two years as a blogger here on Inspired by Life…and Fiction. It has been such a wonderful experience to get to interact with our wonderful readers, and I am so honored to be a part of this group of amazing author friends. I could never blog every day (how do people DO that??) But being part of this group gives me a chance to share my heart (and a few more frivolous things) with you every other Monday.
The question I asked in my very first blog post here, back in April of 2014, was “What are you passionate about?” I asked you to share the three things you were most passionate about. I loved hearing from you, and you didn’t disappoint with the things you named (or the fact that some of you simply could not keep it to three. LOL!)
To celebrate my blog-iversary, I’m going to ask that question again. If you shared before, don’t let that stop you! There are new readers of the blog who haven’t gotten to hear your answers. And perhaps your passions have changed or expanded. Or maybe it killed you to only be able to name three. Here’s your chance to expand on your list of things you are passionate about. Last time we assumed that Jesus and your family were at the top of the list, so again, don’t list those, and no need to feel “guilty.” We know. 🙂
I’m taking this opportunity to add two things to my list:
• Garage sales are embarrassingly high on my list of things I’m passionate about! Since we live on a pretty tight budget, Thursday early morning garage sale runs with my husband are our cheap dates. And we love it! Not only do we feel like we’re on an exciting treasure hunt every week, we almost always find things we need anyway and would have paid much more for in a store—which makes the $15 or so we spend each week feel like an investment!
• Grandbabies! We’ve added two in the last four months for a total of seven and every one of them absolutely makes my heart go pitter-pat! (If only they didn’t live so far away. 🙁 )
So, what are the things that make you feel alive when you are involved in them? What are the things that put a light in your eye and a bounce in your step? I’d love to hear about them in the comments! Ready, set, go!
