Blog for cause: A world without breast cancer

>> 29 October 2009

I am sure you know someone who has or has had cancer. Maybe that person was a family member, maybe a friend. Maybe that person is no longer with us, or maybe that person is fighting a daily, difficult battle.

I've had my share of such people. Most of them are gone now. Thinking about them keeps them alive. Doing something to support the search for a cure gives their death a purpose.

The Susan G. Komen foundation is the leading breast cancer movement in the world, working together with people from all reaches of the world, in search of a cure.

Today, you have the opportunity to help support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization.

Lance from Jungle of Life and Joanna Sutter from Fitness and Spice have teamed up to create an e-book.

This is the collective effort of over 150 writers from throughout the world. Writers uniting together in a race for the cure.

Every one of these writers has contributed a favorite article to this e-book, creating a wonderful collection of stories. Stories of inspiration, personal growth, fitness, food, humor, and more.

I am proud to be one of them.

Please visit the Susan G. Komen Blog-4-Cause website to learn how you can support the mission to end breast cancer. In addition, you'll find information on how to recieve this Blog-4-Cause E-book, our gift to you. A bonus e-book, from author and life coach Tim Brownson, is included as well.

There is much hope in a future filled with possibility. Together, we all can make a difference!


Art is a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself -- Willa Sibert Cather

Happiness is a concept so elusive
that many a search for it is inconclusive.

Happy moments can show their faces
in a subtle instant, in many places.

Those who recognize the fleeting seconds
notice they happen more often than one reckons.

Those who are able to add them all up
little by little fill their happiness cup.

Ending the day with a list of gratitude
will slowly but surely change your attitude.

The more it's fun, the more people want to do it...

...or, how to get people to take the stairs.

So how can you add some fun to the things you need people to do? Or your own tasks?
It is sometimes easier than you think.

Post your ideas/suggestions in the comment section.

I have just come across this original project by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

The Beckoning of Lovely
is an expanding film project involving hundreds of strangers from around the world. Amy Krouse Rosenthal initiated the project last fall by filming a spontaneous public gathering on 8/08/08 at "The Bean" in Millennium Park. The event was a beautiful testament to the power of community, cooperation, and hope amongst strangers in the name of all things lovely. The project has since evolved into the making of a full-length feature film.

One year later

She is also a children's book author. And that speaks to me greatly at the moment. I love such versatile and creative people.
