“When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.” (Author Unknown)

Some of you may be aware that I’ve recently been hired by to be their St. Louis Family and Parenting Examiner. This means that I’ll be writing several family and parenting related articles per week.

Today, I featured a single dad who took a pretty major leap of faith in order to follow his dream, with full expectation of success. I was inspired by his story of tenacity and of achieving a life long dream, even in the face of single parenthood.

So today, I challenge you to consider taking steps toward your ultimate goals, no matter how small. I challenge you to do this even if it seems impossible. Decide today that you WILL meet your ultimate goals, but don’t worry about all of the specifics just yet. Simply decide that it’s going to happen, and take even the smallest step. You will be amazed at what begins to happen.

Check out Jason’s story for a little inspiration!

  1. Nice challenge!
    I’ve been working towards my ultimate dream of being a WAHM.
    BTW, thanks for your help-I gave you a little award on my blog today 🙂

  2. We just read the story you wrote about Jason and Logan. It was beautiful and so inspiring. When we believe in the beauty of our dreams and make our passion our purpose, anything is possible.

    We love the challenge you set forth. Little steps are still steps in the right direction. Dare to Dream!! Everything is within our reach.

    Many Blessings….

  3. I am daring to dream! Since August, everything has been pointing in the direction of my business. Tomorrow, I will be featured on our local news. I will get there and I am working on the next step. It’s soooooo scary but good scary:-)

  4. First of all, Angie, congratulations on achieving another writing goal/dream of yours!
    And, thank you for the uplifting encouragement to follow our dreams and begin taking steps toward them.
    I am living out your promo piece: in the midst of building a new website, editing and self-publishing my memoir, honing my photography skills, building a strong writing community, reaching out to others to follow their dreams.
    Such an exciting time…
    Hope you’ll still give thought to joining NO-MO this month – it has taken off! Only a few slots left but would love to have you guest.
    If not, think about December, when I will have a guest series on The Twelve Days of Christmas.
    Cheers and thanks,

  8. You got me!! Thank you. Your blog is so inspiring and I must admit that setting goals and trying to achieve them is one of my weaknesses. oh, I have tried and tried but I have failed more than I succeeded. I am following your blog from now on. Thank you.

  9. Hey, I just found you via entrecard. I clicked on the examiner card because I’m a parenting examiner in Cleveland. I never thought about putting a card on my examiner sight.
