What Are Your Wildest Expectations?

Mine are to make a positive difference in the world while creating what I love through art and writing.

According to Honie Briggs, one of her wildest expectations is “…everyone on the planet needs clean water, fresh air, nutritious food and liberty to be at their best. Each of us deserves to be free from poverty, fear and oppression.” That’s pretty wild to most people, but not impossible. I love that she writes without judgement, but is still opinionated. If you need a laugh, a mental bandaid or inspiration subscribe to her blog.

Honie is an indie author with a diverse and unique background. She is a veteran of the Air Force, a mother, a traveler and an inspiration for dreamers.  She has self published a book of fiction, “Summoning the Strength“. Her book follows Katherine Doyle  as she and the women in her life  make way through a changing world.  What I really like is when she states  “Grandmothers, mothers, sisters, and daughters make the same journey no matter the vehicle.” This is so true, but one it took me some time to learn.  We all have ups and downs, life is not perfect for anyone even those at peace because we do not live in a world of peace. We live in a world where the the one thing you can count on is we will change.  Even with cahnge, we will all take the same journey from birth to death.

Gorgeous Gems

Thanks to GorgeousoCity blog for joining my blog challenge.  This blogger is ‘Sharing Gems of Gorgeousness’ by writing about beauty and skincare – particularly of the natural and organic variety. This former beauty editor took the jump from working for someone else to creating independence with her own business.  One of my favorite posts is about eidble beauty oil by Bay of Plenty.  You simply enjoy a yummy spoonful of this oil and it replenishes your skin from the inside out.

 She also has solid advice like her wonderfully honest post on our quest for perfection.  She talks about a film by Jean Kilbournde and the prevelance of photoshop in the beauty/fashion industry. It’s great advice without being judgemental.

So visit this blog and subscribe to the updates so you don’t miss out on a new and healthy beauty products. http://gorgeousocity.wordpress.com/2012/01/29/empowering-young-women
