Blog Every Day Feb: Day Two - What Fires Me Up

Linking up with Bailey Jean for the Blog Every Day in February challenge!

Golly, where do I even begin? Bailey Jean created a beautiful collage to share her passions; Laura focused on an overarching theme. I could make a list, but it would be a) really really REALLY long and b) incomplete no matter the length. So... here's a hybrid :)

First of all is Jesus. He made me and He made the things that I'm passionate about, and He made me passionate about them. He's the best. 

Secondly, my family gets me fired up. This is both in the positive way and negative way, but that's the beauty of family, right? :)

The pro-life movement gets me fired up. I volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center, and my four hours there are the highlight of my week. If we're friends on Facebook, you may notice that I share more pro-life articles than actual status updates, and I have to remind myself to share my passion gently with people, instead of bursting with facts and information and solutions. Still working on this :)

Those are the big three, I think. And now in no particular order, here are more fire-starters:
  • friends
  • mojitos
  • travel
  • books
  • Hans Zimmer
  • birth stories
  • cleaning
  • education
  • dancing
  • children
  • British television 
  • baking cookies
  • hosting {parties, visitors, overnight guests}
  • showering
  • laughter
  • Zumba
  • playing card or board games
...and sharing these with other people. I'm definitely an extrovert, plus I love people, so whenever I can be with someone, that's where I am. Being with people fires me up!

Wanna join the February blogging challenge? Here are the prompts; you can still join!


  1. That is so wonderful that you work at a pregnancy crisis center! If we had one hear us, I would be involved in a heartbeat. Indeed, thumbs up for British television! They don't get enough credit. And for Zumba. Zumba is amazing (although I've only ever done it with one friend using videos off Youtube...but still amazing!) :) Coming over from the link up.

    1. Desarae, I love volunteering there! Is there a related ministry you could get involved with, maybe through your church? Or is God calling you to start a clinic? :)
      British television is pretty darn amazing. What are your favorites?
      Zumba is awesome! It's my favorite way to exercise :)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love this! I definitely share many of the things on your list :-) And oh my gosh I feel you on the sharing too many articles thing! I try to post them mainly on my blog page, and not my personal account so much. And much of the time I just pin them on my "to write about" board or something, which has helped. All this talk of lovely things makes me want to curl up with a good book instead of doing homework!!
