Weekly Moment of Gratitude: Monday Motivation + New Orleans Here I Come Edition!

What I am grateful for:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - I'm headed to New Orleans! -  On August 1st I wrote a post that served as a contest entry towards a sponsored trip to the Niche Mommy Conference in New Orleans (you can see the post HERE if you missed it) and I am super stoked to report that I actually won! I'm getting that nervous excited restless energy that I feel right before I travel somewhere new! I had no idea when I embarked on an Ambassadorship with @SafeConBritax that it would lead to many so new adventures! It started with a trip to Britax Headquarters earlier this year, and now the kickoff to a new blogging conference too. I loved the idea of becoming a Britax Ambassador from the very begining, because they put child safety first. I know the majority of my readers are moms. Moms from many different walks of life, but the common denominator for all moms is wanting your child to be safe. And that is Britax's goal, it's their mission. And the small way I get to be a part of that journey has been more rewarding than I ever could have anticipated. I'm grateful to be part of the program! I'm also grateful that this program has given me the opportunity to host giveaways for you so you can experience first hand just how wonderful Britax products really are!

I would love recos from any of our Ascending Butterfly NOLA readers!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Feature! - For last week's Motivation Monday we mentioned the opportunity for a reader to be featured, and I just wanted to remind everyone I am NOT looking just for bloggers for this feature, it's open to EVERYONE! (Here is the original post so you can get an idea of what questions we would be asking you!)

What are YOU most grateful for this week Butterfly?

What are you grateful for today? I'd love for you to write in and share what you are grateful for this week. The more you say it, the more you speak it, and the more you live in gratitude, the more you will find reasons to be grateful for, and the more reasons that the universe will send you to be grateful for. So join me on this journey of gratitude and inspiration. And you can post here daily (even though my list will be posted weekly).

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

Motivation Monday: What inspires YOU? Tell us for a chance to be featured in our new monthly '#inspiration corner'!

It's Motivation Monday Time, but this time there's a twist, usually I do all the writing and you do all the reading. How about we mix things up a bit?

I've been reading a lot of Post BlogHer12 drama and the only thing that came to mind was 'How can I help be a part of the solution'? There seems to be so many flames, trolls and mis-understandings going on right now, that I'd like to see something positive instead.

I've been wanting to do a feature monthly since I started Ascending Butterfly and somehow never got around to it, it was originally going to be a share your best butterfly story type of contest, and then I kept toying with the idea and somehow put it on the back burner.

So here's my proposal, because my schedule is absolutely insane, I'll start it off as a monthly feature, if we get slammed with entries we'll increase the frequency.

I would like to feature one person per month, the feature will ask you to answer the following questions:

(1) What inspires you?

(2) What are you most grateful for in your life?

(3) What does being an ascending butterfly mean to YOU? What's YOUR butterfly story?

Whether you are a blogger, small business owner or a celebrity you will get a very small bio at the end of the feature, the point of this feature isn't for anyone to sell anything, this is for us all to embrace the positive things in our lives and in one another, are you game?

Want to be featured? I'd like to keep things simple so just post your email address formatted for security purposes and we will email you the questions above which you can answer at your own convenience, I really want truly thoughtful answers!

If you are selected to be featured you will be notified via email!

We will feature as many people interested as possible, and NO we aren't just looking for bloggers! Everyone will have the chance to be included, this is not a contest, this is a way for us all to give and receive inspiration from one another! (Do you have any input as to when you'd like to see the feature rolled out? I'm thinking the first of the month? Let me know what you think!)

Happy Motivation Monday Butterflies!
