I am very excited to release this episode of the Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast. This is the audio recording from last night's PABL Round Table Discussion.

Those you will hear in this call are Edith Baker, Patti Bagadion, Amanda Black, Erik Fisher, Patrick Greer, Sharon M., Maggie Mack, Richard Marcotte, Cliff Ravenscraft, Stephanie Ravenscraft, Mark Tafoya, and Stephanie Weak.

The conversation was a great way to demonstrate that Pursuing A Balanced Life is a goal of people from many different walks of life. I think my favorite thing about last night's conversation was that even though our community is made up of people who are all at different places in their life as it relates to the current balance of their lives, we are all on the same journey together. No matter where each of us are at, we can all encourage and inspire each other equally. We all add value to the conversation!

We will be doing another PABL Round Table Discussion Very Soon!

It was many years ago that I caught the end of tv show that featured the life of Nick Vujicic. I recall wanting to go and find more information about him. However, I had only seen the end of the program and didn't catch his name and back then, the internet was not then what it is today.

Fast forward to today. i got a noticed that someone had commented on my last blog post about me being on the road to recovery. I clicked to check out the commenter's blog and saw a YouTube video featuring Nick.

Nick Vujicic is a 25 year old man who was born without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given Nick the strength to surmount what others might call impossible. Along with that, the Lord has placed within him an unquenchable passion to share this same hope and genuine love with more than two million people all over the globe.

Traveling extensively to over 19 nations, Nick has had continuous opportunities to share his testimony along with the hope that we have in Jesus with people in so many nations and situations.

I recall sitting in the hospital, knowing that I was going to miss my trip to Las Vegas to cover CES. Praying through my disappointment, God began to speak to me about having a proper perspective on life. God's had these talks with me in the past. They seemed to make a difference for a while, but over time, I've always seemed to slip into the mindset that the world revolves around me.

It's easy to get caught up in fear and anxiety when something happens in our life that we didn't expect or plan for. If there is anything that God has been showing me over the past year or so, it is that God is control, He loves me, and that everything is going to be okay. That's going to be true whether I worry about things or not. And well, God would simply rather I would focus on taking the next step on my journey than to throw myself pitty parties when things don't go my way.

I thought I'd share these two short videos from Nick to help bring some perspective. I'm so thankful to have come across the story of Nick's life again. He's inspired me and I pray that his story will inspire you! [click to continue…]
