Ever feel like you have so much to say and so much passion and want to shout it all out? Me too.

Blogging has been such an amazing journey and I have immensely enjoyed and continue to love writing A Latte Lipstick! Each week, I look forward to sharing with my fabulous readers!

I have always enjoyed writing and feel that it is a talent to continue finessing every single day. Not only does blogging allow me to do this, but it also provides an outlet to share my other passion for fitness and health. Potentially helping someone live a healthier lifestyle whether it’s them trying one of my quick workouts, making a new recipe, or just learning more about eating right and living a healthy lifestyle, I have done what I have set out to do! I only hope to grow in this lofty endeavor!

The community that blogging creates has also been such a delightful surprise! Blogging allows you to not only meet amazing people near you that you wouldn’t have met otherwise, but also gives you the opportunity to connect with people across the world. How cool is that?

If you have an interest and something to share, blogging is a great outlet! I wholeheartedly would encourage someone to start a blog if they feel the calling. My advice would be to blog for the right reasons, blog about your passions and the urge you feel to let it out and share. Don’t get caught up in gaining popularity, etc. get caught up in writing good content that will add value to your readers and create happiness for you.

So without further adieu, lovely reader, thanks so much for reading my posts here at Oklahoma Women Bloggers. I have greatly loved and been honored to be the May blogger and hope to see you over at my blog, A Latte Lipstick.(link to alattelipstick.com)

Oklahoma Flooding

Batten down the hatches, the weather isn’t done with us yet. While the rain continues to water the earth, and the roads, and our basements, and our creeks, and our sanity…just think about the drought we were in last summer. It wasn’t that long ago that many of our lakes and drinking water sources were well below acceptable levels. We may be going nuts right now but hopefully all this rain will pay off in August.

The weather may have you trapped inside so take this opportunity to share what you have been doing this week in blog-land. While you’re at it, go and see what your OKWB community is up to. A little bit of comment love goes a long way.

Let’s Be Generous

May 18, 2015

Contributed by May Blogger of the Month, Chloe Shelby

Generosity is defined as the quality of being kind, understanding, and not selfish: the quality of being generous.

How are you generous? Do you live generously? Generosity is about giving, whether it is your time, advice, monetary value, etc.

You will always remember those people who were generous to you when it wasn’t necessary. Those people who offer their help when the issue at hand has nothing to do them, those people who listen to your latest dilemma for hours until you feel better, those people who constantly give and give. Seek to be those people.

Don’t be generous to be recognized, give generously with abandon, expecting nothing in return. Generosity can be as small as giving that free Starbucks coffee to the person behind you in line, or as large as donating your entire life’s work to a cause you believe in. No matter the circumstance, no act of generosity is too small.

For Arthur, it may be sharing one of his favorite toys with his sister.

generosity quote

I especially love this quote about generosity because you can do this every day and people will truly appreciate it. Today, there are so many distractions and we are constantly doing more than purely listening. Giving someone your undivided attention is a generous gift.

Oklahoma is a good place to live. People are kind and generous to one another. We give generously and it comes back around. We have come to call this the Oklahoma Standard.

So my fellow Okies, how will you be generous? Let’s all be more generous this week and see how this can change our lives and those around us.

Why Do You Exercise?

May 4, 2015

Submitted by our May Blogger of the Month, Chloe  Shelby Why do you exercise? Or, why don’t you exercise?  Stop and think about it. We shouldn’t be sedentary, because we weren’t designed to be sedentary. We were created to move, shake, boogie, and ultimately run from predators who were trying to make us their meal, […]
