G is for Go For The Idea That Catches Your Breath…

Welcome to your daily dose of inspiration:
In Darkness Be Light.

Since social media and news in recent times has been filled with so much hate and negativity, these simple reminders aim at promoting positivity and lightening up your day.


Go for the idea that catches your breath, gives you goosebumps, and sends a shiver of fear down your spine. Because that idea can take you to milestones you haven’t dared to achieve yet!


Would you like to be a part of spreading positivity? Check out the We Are The World Blogfest, which aims at promoting positive news. Here’s the shortened version:


  • Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
  • All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
  • Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news.

Have you discovered the thing that scares you because it challenges you to succeed and to make big changes in your life? What are you doing about it?

    I really love this quote… I think I might print it out and put it in clear view at my work station.

    Here is my post for the day:

    Great quote, Michelle. We need to follow our instincts and take risks to achieve anything great.

    Hi Michelle – we need to move ahead, jumping where necessary to achieve the most we can in this short life of ours …

    There’s so much truth in that simple word ‘go’. ‘Stop’ and we never move forward, become static. Good G word.

    Go for the idea that’s a burning desire!

  7. Patricia on April 8, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    Love that quote – the things that give you goose bumps are just too special to ignore

  12. Gail M Baugniet on April 9, 2017 at 5:17 pm

    The idea that catches your breath and gives you goosebumps is the one that will have you hopping out of bed each morning, and the one you stick with. Your quote is an excellent dose of inspiration, Michelle.

    I love your approach to the A to Z challenge this year. So positive and uplifting πŸ™‚

    Going for the thing that scares me…putting myself out in the public eye with books, blogs, and general cheerleading for other indie artists. Not to mention sharing positive messages. This is tough for an introvert like me. I do it because I feel that is where I belong at this time. Thanks for sharing this quote. ~fellow #WATWB member

    Great post. It’s good to go for what fires us up. It will give us drive to complete it, and it that enthusiasm will shine out for others to appreciate.

  16. Patricia Lynne aka Patricia Josephine on April 10, 2017 at 12:24 am

    Great words of advice.

  17. Sara C. Snider on April 13, 2017 at 6:59 am

    I’ve found that the ideas that have made me nervous and a little afraid have often been the ones I ended up being the most glad I pursued. πŸ™‚
