Why Brendaline Blogs?

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances [opportunities] they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.” ~George Bernard Shaw

Wow…bold, brazen diamond-in-the-raw truth! Splash some cold water in-your-face truth! I like that quote! What a jolt. I came across this inspirational and motivational quote somewhere on Oprah’s website a few days ago, and have been truly inspired by it, as I have been with many Oprah-isms. So smitten by my new-found inspirational quote  that I have placed it on my desk, handwritten on a flash card, and read it daily along with other favorites that inspire.

Brendaline Blogs was created to share my life’s inspirations in all their forms.  Learning more about myself, my past and most importantly, learning from the wisdom of others is definitely the way to continually learn, grow and be my personal best. Living this way opens up our lives to inspirational moments that help propel us into growth opportunities which ultimately brings us closer to our true self – the self we were born and destined to be. The self that is truly happy, free from fear, and all-embracing of the challenges and call to personal greatness.

More so, this blog is dedicated to all who are in the pursuit and creation of meaningful opportunities or experiences that present themselves in almost every facet of life, if we are just open and conscious of these now moments. I think we can always find tidbits of inspiration and happiness in the stillness of meditation, in the dewdrops dawning a new day, in the sweet laughter of a child amused in playtime, or the nothingness of a lazy raining afternoon. Yes, there is inspiration and sheer joy everywhere. So take some time to capture those moments and place them in your forever box of memories; to be cherished for all of time.  And since life inspires, let’s blog about it.

Do share what inspires you today!



Life Inspires!

So…let’s blog about it! I bet every first-time blogger had a keen desire to want to share who they are or what they had to offer with their world. Perhaps the love and freedom of self-expression like Lady Gaga, the simplicity of connecting and sharing on Facebook, or simply capturing and sharing frozen-in-time, candid moments on YouTube with the world was the appeal  Maybe some are business professional looking to establish themselves online or others are gurus with dedicated followers. Whatever the reason, life inspires bloggers for business or pleasure, and everything in between.

For me, writing my first blog today is a way to reconnect with my true and present self, to rediscover the moments that are truly inspiring through the lens of life, and sharing whatever life lessons to be learnt with you.

Right now, life is teaching me to be present in the now! It’s so easy to forget and lose ourselves in the past or laser-focus on the future and simply forget to be here now. So I’ve learned to stop for a moment, take a deep breathe and slowly exhale, simply allowing myself to be, simply being here now.

So let’s not forget to take a breather and relax. So the next time on the bus, in your car or walking, take some time to be present in your moment, and be prepared catch inspiration all around you – and connect with your true self!

Let’s be inspired together!
