“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
~ Helen Keller
I love it when people are really brave and do something that really scares them. It could be sky diving or calling someone for a first date. Fear is fear but the satisfaction of working through your fear to accomplish a goal is so rewarding. I had to work through my fear when starting 365give. I just had to muster the courage to do that first post, link the first video, and link the first URL.
Today I want to GIVE to a women that has given to me by posting on her blog weekly. I always get something out of each of her posts and they always seem to come exactly when I need some encouragement or a story to get me through a day.
Her site is called Think Simple Now Tina Su is the Founder and Chief Happiness Officer. This is Tina’s philosophy as quoted from her site. “She is a keen believer of “never work again“, by living a highly creative life following one’s heart, exploring one’s potential, generating value, and living one’s mission and life purpose.”
The first post I ever read was all about fear. It was perfect timing as I was trying to figure out how to get over my fear of blogging at the time. The other one that always stands out in my mind is an article about an adopted child meeting their birth parent for the first time. As an adopted parent this kind of insight is so vital for getting you through stages with your adopted kids and understanding how they feel about their birth parents.
Now it is my turn to GIVE something back to Tina for all that she has given me and her other loyal readers.
Give 29 / Day 29
Tina Su needs your help and mine. Tina is trying to get her dream job by getting paid to inspire people to be happy and write about it. A brand by the name of Sam-e Complete is running a competition called the Good Mood Gig. They are looking for a Good Mood Blogger to write about how to stay happy every day. I think Tina would be great for this job and best of all we would get to read her “happy” inspirations 5 days a week. Part of the application process is to get votes – a lot of them.
Today I voted for Tina and I am asking you to take 20 seconds out of your day to look at Tina’s profile and vote for her. No sign up required, no information to give out. Just hit the vote button.
Good luck Tina. From one working Mom to another: thank you for working through your own fear to inspire others to do the same. I look forward to reading your daily happiness blog when you get the job!
