Top Ten Favorite Inspirational Women of 2016: #1 – YOU

I could go on for days about all the women who inspire me each day. But my thesaurus is surely feeling the strain. (One can only put “amazing” into the thesaurus search engine so many times before it sighs and shuts down on you)

As a result, my number #1 Favorite Inspirational Woman of 2016 is YOU!!

Yep! YOU! 

Don’t look around the room … I am indeed talking to you!

Each week I come back to sit at my computer to create for YOU!  I sit here somedays with a flashing cursor asking for guidance on how I can help each and everyone of you. 

I always show up because YOU always show up. I always write because YOU always read it. 

I’ve said before, I started the blog to write whether anyone read it or not. I began writing to find my voice, to find my writing style and to practice my skill. 

But it’s turned into so much more because of all of you. I fell into blogging. That’s not a lie. 

However, I continue write because you all inspire me to do so. 

So … to each woman (or man *cough cough* Larry Wilda) who is here, hanging out, reading these words and smiling with me, laughing with me or even crying with me. Thank you. 

Thank you for showing up. Thank you for your encouragement and kindness and love. 

The collection of you gather here for different reasons. Some for love, some for inspiration, some for a giggle, some for happiness and some just to see what the hell I’ve got cookin’ now. (And who can blame them. I change directions more frequently than my underwear. #reallynotreally)

Whatever your reason for coming back each day, I thank you for making my 2016 extraordinary. Thank you for sharing my journey. 

Thank you for sharing my words with your friends and family. Thank you for inspiring me to show up and be heard. 

Thank you for sharing yourselves with me. 

Thank you for sharing your precious time with me. 

Our lives are busy, I know that, and somedays there is just not enough hours in the day. So when someone tells me they have “saved” my post to read while in the bathtub or on the treadmill, I am honoured. 

Ya’ll have found a place for me in your busy lives. You’ve accepted my voice and my writing into your homes and your routines. And I am beyond grateful. 

I’m looking forward to 2017.  I have plans to make this blog bigger and better. I have plans to create more bracelets. I have plans to share more love. More inspiration. More knowledge. 

It fires me up and I love what I do. 

BUT you all make it worthwhile. You all make me love what I do EVEN more. 

I thought I was wanted to write just for me, but when you all started rolling in and landing here, I have come to realize this is where I’m always wanted to be. Hanging out with you guys!  

We (you AND me) have created a gorgeous community of love, self acceptance and encouragement. It’s pretty incredible. It is my truest privilege to write for you.  

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. THANK YOU!

I’m sending out my love to each and everyone who visits here. You are incredible, you are inspiration and I am truly blessed to be surrounded by each and everyone of you. 

MY offer to you:

The Empowerment Bracelet named “I love myself” is launching officially in the New Year. Just in time for New Years Resolutions. 


Bracelet Elements include:

  • 1″ – 2D Antique Silver Charm which showcases the “I love myself” empowerment phrase and my personal initials (lme❤️) creates the “ruffle” as the border
  • Bracelet Beads of Frosty Purple Agate Effloresce 
  • Beads are divided with silver flourish spacers to represent the Angel Number 3168 which is the Angel Number for self love. By drawing in the power of the angelic realm creates a higher energetic vibration to the bracelet and will assist you to stand in your power, be true to yourself, honor you, believe in your dreams and allow YOUR LIGHT TO BRIGHTLY SHINE.

    And funny – Every time I read one of your top 10, I thought every time, oh I can’t wait to see who she writes about for her #1, she must be AH-MAZ-ING! Like I need to get to know that person good, and fast!’ so I’m thinking I need to start to date myself, cause if you think that highly of me, why don’t I?
