Watching the final Oprah episode (in 3 different sittings mind you, due to some trips to the basement during tornado sirens) I found myself tearing up. I’ve watched her since I was a kid with my mom and sister and I could not help but feel like I was in a trance listening. She inspired me to hop on here because all I kept thinking about was the Army Wife Network fans, the team, and all the bloggers out there that are inspiring one another and also serving as a bit of an outlet, or a means for others to read and feel validated that they too are going thru the same things. To those that share their journeys, their trials, their quests, accomplishments, joys, sadness, tips, tricks, and just plain virtual smiles, thank you for having the courage to do so.
“You also have to know what sparks the light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world. You have the power to change somebodies life.”
I love to see all the activity, battle buddy connections, and comments along Facebook and here on the blogs. It is our way of letting you know that as Oprah talked about today- what you say matters, and we hear you.
Personally, having gone thru some major life challenges the last few months, I found myself inspired to get up and get back to living the life I was used to. It was time to stop wallowing and start living the life I was meant to live. I was put on this earth for a reason and darn it, I plan to figure out exactly what that reason is.
I hope when you wake up tomorrow, you feel inspired. You are here for a reason, a purpose and if you haven’t yet…..get out there and start trying to figure out what it is you were meant to do.
As Oprah asked, I challenge you to think about this- and if you feel inclined you may post your answer, if not go ahead and keep it private, but just ponder this for a bit… “Your life is speaking to you. What does it say?”
All the best.
