200 Followers! Thank You!

Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy.

I reached a milestone today, so I wanted to say Thank You! It probably doesn’t seem like much to many of you, but this little blog of mine has very much been a grassroots effort to me.

7 Tips to Build New Habits

Habit building is a journey; it doesn’t happen over night.

It has been said that “Motivation is what gets you started, and Habit is what keeps you going.” So I wanted to do a quick check-in after my 30 Day Challenge back in April, to let you know that my habits are still going strong. The challenge was a personal development series to re-establish some habits of mine that had slipped. My personal journey was successful, as 60 days later:

  • I am still writing in my daily gratitude journal
  • I am still practicing yoga daily
  • I am still logging my food daily
  • I am sleeping better

“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” ~Mike Murdock

The results of all of this? Continue reading “7 Tips to Build New Habits”

The Sunshine Blogger Award

Wow! Grateful and humbled by my nomination from Sara AKA FibroButterfly18 who writes the blog The Last Days of Pompeii . Her blog, like mine, is written from the perspective of someone who lives with fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions, but doesn’t let it define her. She looks at each day as a gift and is much happier for it. So check out her blog.

And before I could even get this blog post finished, I was also nominated by LadyFibroWarrior, who was on my list of nominees before I heard from her about nominating me! She is another awesome fibrowarrior blogging about life with fibromyalgia and maintaining a positive attitude.

Please check them both of these lovely ladies’ blogs out. You know you want to! And Thank you both for honoring me with this. Continue reading “The Sunshine Blogger Award”

Still Figuring it All Out

Some of you might have noticed a few changes here lately. For the last two years, I haven’t had a title for my blog, so I just used my social media handle photobaugh. But I did have a tagline “Finding Inspiration in Everyday Life.” I recently got inspired and I have decided to call my blog My Inspired Fibro Life and change the tagline to “Finding Inspiration in Everyday Life While Living with Fibromyalgia.” pexels-photo-211122.jpeg

Building a Purposeful Path

As you start with the big picture, ask yourself: What do I have time, energy, and resources to accomplish? What makes me happy and brings me joy. The answers will then help you make your list of goals.

I started reading the Goal Setting Series by Lara Casey this morning (Part 1 here) and wanted to share some quick insights. While 2017 wasn’t my most productive year, I am trying to look past my shortcomings, extend myself some grace, and be happy with what I did accomplish.

I wrote about some self-care goals for 2017, and at last check I had given myself a solid B-. I would say that was where I ended the year. I am sleeping more and working out regularly. I still need to get away from my desk more at lunch AND not work so many hours – I am going to work on those items more in 2018, as I am building my purposeful path.
