This is the 3rd installment of ‘Penguin Personified’. Each month I’ll put the spotlight on a blog that I think rocks, but also walks the walk so to speak. My mission here at Flying Through Water is to create a world of Penguins! Before you click away because you think I’ve clearly lost it….Click the link and see if you can buy into what I’m selling: Welcome To Flying Through Water
The readers digest version:
Penguins have little stubby legs. So short that they have to waddle about. As we all know…they march hundreds of miles on those little buggers. They do the best they can with what they have. They also have wings, but they can’t fly. Why? Because their little wings are stubby too.
But here’s the thing…here’s the magic. Put that same waddling-no flying-penguin in the water and she SOARS! Watching a penguin swim is like watching her fly through water. THIS is where that little one excels. She makes due in some areas using sheer determination…because that’s life…but she has found her place to shine.
Flying Through Water is a reminder that we all have greatness inside us. We just have to find it. The goal of this blog is to challenge ME…and YOU to shake things up….break free of our comfort zones and LIVE our lives to fullest.
This month I want to talk about Miriam over at Out an’ About. Do you know Miriam? If not….you are missing out, but I’m so happy to be the one to introduce her!
Miriam is someone I feel lucky to call a friend. I met her early on when I was still blogging at another location. She and I share many of the same thoughts and were experiencing many of the same emotions when we met. We certainly found each other in this big old world at the perfect time.
She is a phenomenal photographer and has been having a love affair with the great outdoors (in the GREAT Outback… by the way) for most of her life. She shares her adventures through imagery but also by sharing her deepest thoughts with us. She will inspire you…motivate you…and get you thinking.
Take me for example. I am not an outdoorsy girl. I mean I love to sit on a patio with a beverage…feet up….taking in the fresh air. As long as it’s not too hot, or too cold…or too windy…and of course…no bugs allowed.
BUT after reading a post from Miriam I’m so pumped up…I actually believe I could handle a ‘walkabout’…set up camp in the wilderness….or even possibly COOK on an open fire! THAT is impressive! She makes you feel alive and she will definitely make you crave adventure!
She shares so much with us on Out an’ About. She is open and loving and so honest to goodness real it will make you feel understood. That’s a real gift.
She has supported and encouraged me from day one and I see her name all over WordPress doing the same for countless others.
She is a penguin personified because she continues to seek out more in life. She consistently pushes herself out of her comfort zone and then shares that with US! That is walking the penguin talk!
Thank you Miriam for being a Penguin and for inspiring those of us lucky enough to know you. You are such an important part of this community and who knows…maybe someday we can go on a walkabout together….or ya know…sit on a patio…feet up……
I hope you will all take the time to check out Out an’ About!! You will be so thankful that you did.
Thanks for reading~
