It’s World Kindness Day

Today is my one year Blogiversary! It’s also World Kindness Day. So in the spirit of Kindness Day, I wanted to share a story I read from On the Road with Steve Hartman about Chris Rosati who was suffering from ALS. Have you heard of the butterfly effect? It’s this idea that “a single butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the globe can, in theory, start a hurricane on the other.” So Chris applied this theory to kindness and children, thinking it only takes a single act of kindness to start a chain reaction. So if you want a little more inspiration to start your own chain reaction or spread a little kindness in the world, go read the story of Chris Rosati and his butterfly effect. It will make your day.

Go, spread kindness. Smile. Be kind.

Cheers!

Sunday Inspiration: Discover

Get outside today and blaze a new trail, discover a new path, or set a new course. The world is yours to discover!

Sunday Inspiration: Nature

Version 2
Bleeding Heart flowers, Juneau, Alaska

The world would be a much better place if we all got outside and enjoyed nature a little more, smelled the flowers, breathed in the air, and just treated each other like kin or family, don’t you think? Enjoy your Sunday!

Cheers!

Cybersecurity for Bloggers

cyberheader

This blog is a little out of the ordinary for my personal blog, but today my personal life and professional life are intersecting. By day, I am a technology manager, charged with supporting software applications, building technology solutions for complex business problems, and making sure those solutions are secure and our end-users are properly trained. By night, I usually blog about those random things in life that inspire me. Lately, that has been security.

As this is National Cyber Security Awareness Monthcyber_blog1  (NCSAM), I have been running a campaign at work to raise end-user awareness about simple security tips to use at work and home, as well as posting information on social media under my personal accounts. As a member of the “Stop. Think. Connect.” global online safety awareness campaign, I use many of their materials for this initiative. And when I came across “Safety Tips for Bloggers” I figured I would share this week, as the theme is “Our Continuously Connected Lives,” hoping I could share some useful information with my readers.

Meet and Greet Weekend

Well it’s not the weekend (I was taking a break from Social Media on Sunday), but it’s always a good time to meet new friends and find new blog inspirations. So thank you, Keith, for this opportunity. And “Cheers!” Everyone.

I have done exactly that several times in the past several years: I started this blog. Changed roles at work. Twice! Changed departments once. I was able to do this because: I believe in myself and my capabilities; I am not content to stay put; and I push myself to learn new things, have new experiences, and GROW.
