During our Carnival Cruise, I did a lot of reflecting while gazing out into the ocean, and one view that was particularly hypnotic was that of the ship’s wake.

Recently, I read a quote from Wayne Dyer that beautifully captures the essence of a wake and how it relates to life.

The past is a trail you leave behind, much like the wake of a speedboat.  That is, it’s a vanishing trail temporarily showing you where you were.  The wake of a boat doesn’t affect it’s course–obviously it can’t since it appears behind the boat.  So consider this image when you exclaim that your past is the reason you aren’t moving forward.  ~ Wayne Dyer

So whenever I feel stuck in life, I’m going to remember that hypnotic wake and remind myself that the past is behind me, the future is ahead of me…

…and I’m moving forward!  🙂

Back in June, I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Jo at Wood and Rope.


In return, I had the honor of nominating 10 more blogs for the same award.  At the time, I only nominated 5  blogs with the intention of nominating the remaining 5 soon thereafter.  Well, after looking back at some posts (4 months later), I realized that I totally forgot my last 5 nominees!  My bad!

So without further ado, here are the remaining 5 blogs that I thoroughly enjoy and wholeheartedly nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award.

6.  The Usual Bliss – A fun, delightful blog about Amber, her life in Park City, Utah with her soon to be husband (getting married this weekend!), their adorable dog Cholula, traveling, cooking & the daily bliss that fills her life.  Quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs!

7.  My Sardinian Life  –  Ever dream of living on a beautiful Mediterranean island?  Well, Jennifer is doing just that & giving us a look into her expat life in Sardinia.  This blog will seriously give you the travel bug!

8.  Oh She Glows –  Angie has been an inspiration for me to live a healthier, happier life through her awesome blog full of delicious vegan recipes and positive outlook on life.  Oh She Glows is what inspired me to start my own blog!

9.  Zen Habits – Leo teaches us how to find simplicity so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing and find happiness.  What’s not to love?

10.  Outside Air – An enjoyable, thoughtful blog about Kari, her life in Masachusetts and her musings on life, love, photography, nature, faith and the outdoors.

Thank you all for inspiring me daily with your wonderful blogs!
