Blog of the Month

One of my goals in 2014 is to make more connections in the world and spread the love. With that said, I dreamed up Blog of the Month. Yes, I know it is nothing Earth shattering. Monthly features are indeed nothing new and revolutionary but this feature on my blog is new. I put out the idea to fellow SweatPink, Kindrunner, and FitFluential Ambassadors and I am not at a loss of blogs to share. You see, I did it this way so I wasn't just promoting blogs I already read but hoped to find some new gems as well! You would think I would announce these the start of the month but it seems I am just going mid-month to mid-month based on when my first one was announced in January. 

April's blog is another new blog for me...and some young blood! I am loving this!!!

Introducing Passion for Life, Love, and Health! What a wonderful blog name! This blog is written by Ashleigh, who is a 20-something with a degree in Psychology and she loves creating art, music, and writing. Oh my! What a doll! I loved my psychology classes in high school and college. So much fun!

I also love that Ashleigh, like myself, has a blog mission. Her mission statement is:

"Passion for Life, Love, and Health aims to be a provider of resources, inspiration, and even encouragement for people who are working on living a healthy lifestyle. A weight loss blog at heart, it chronicles Ashleigh's journey to greater wellness and fewer pounds, while providing a plethora of tips, information, and resources on nutrition, fitness, motivation, mental health, and overall health, especially as they pertain to weight management."

What a mission! 

You see, in life, we are all connected and what I truly cherish in blogging is that you can connect with other like-minded souls and it really doesn't matter how old you are or where you live. We all have a story to tell and we can all learn from one another. This month Ashleigh has been focused on "Healthy Mind, Healthy Body" and there is a lot of truth in that. Hop on over to her blog, read about A National Stress Awareness Challenge, and tell Ashleigh Erica G sent you her way. I will definitely be following her journey! How about you?

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for new friends.
Daily Affirmation: My mind in open to learning.


  1. "Young blood"...LOL I love it!!! Anyway, thank you SO much for your sweet words and this kind feature! I absolutely love the way you did this...putting out a call for blogs so that you get exposed to new-to-you blogs too! So far I've been featuring blogs I already read when I do blog features (I call them "Sunday's Shoutouts", even though I've posted, like, one in the past several months), but I'm going to seriously consider changing things up to feature new-to-me blogs as well. Thanks for the idea!!! (If you don't mind me borrowing that idea, that is :-) ). Also, thanks for posting my mission statement...so much thought went into making sure every word had the biggest impact possible (so that it wasn't too ramble-y or long), but I never know if people are actually reading it. So YAY for spreading the mission statement love! Okay, I'll stop rambling now. Thank you for making my day! :-)

    1. And you made my day too! Yes, feel free to borrow the idea! I believe sharing new and old loves is the best way to support one another in life. Have a great day Ashleigh!

  2. Love this Erica, what a great idea, and a way of meeting new wonderful bloggers. You are so thoughtful and always thinking of how you can give to others. I need to learn from you :) Keep up the good work!

    1. Thank you so much Tina. I think you made me blush and feel so good inside. :)
