Liebster Award!

liebsteraward-400x284

I was incredibly honored to be nominated for the Liebster Award by the wonderful blogger Emily at healthyandgolden.com. The purpose of the Liebster Award is for bloggers to provide each other with a platform to be discovered, which hopefully allows others to find bloggers they are interested in and can provide value to their lives. What a cool concept!

Emily posted some questions for me to answer, so here goes:

  1. Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog because my mission is to help as many people in my lifetime as I possibly can, live inspired lives. One way I do that is through Chiropractic care (but as you can see on this blog, that is a small portion of what I write about). A larger impact in this inspiration quest is my aim to get in touch with our purpose, our passions, to let our souls shine and light up the world.

  1. What is one moment in your life that has made you who you are today?

Quite a few years ago, I was dealing with depression. Depression also “runs in the family.” Sadly, this isn’t that unique of a situation. Studies show that Depression affects more than 16 million adults in the U.S. I went to counseling, discovered meditation, started reading some great books to learn more about the subject and what can be done about it. I am happy to say that I have been doing great since then, and I have incorporated these activities into my daily life. I have become more accepting of myself, and have allowed my own inspiration and purpose to grow in order to help others.

  1. What is your favourite place in the world?

My couch at home when I am sitting with my family by the fire 🙂

  1. One piece of advice for a complete stranger?

No one needs to be a stranger. Everyone in life is fighting their own battles, so be kind, it’s contagious. When you do things to help others, you get lifted up as well, so do your best to help “strangers” whenever possible.

  1. What is your number one passion, that you wish people knew more about?

1)Cultivate inspiration. There are tools everywhere to do so. 1a)Chiropractic!-Its about removing barriers between your brain and the rest of your body, so that you may live as unencumbered as possible (it isn’t about back pain 🙂

  1. What is your dream job?

Living it right now! Chiropractor/Inspire-er

  1. What does a typical day in your life look like?

I head into the office M-Th, So in the mornings, I get up, have coffee with my beautiful wife, breakfast with my boys. Then I walk Isaac to school. Sometimes I drive Payton in, sometimes he rides his bike. My wife is a teacher so she leaves for work earlier. After that, I bathe, read an inspirational book for a bit, mediate, work on affirmations, write and jam out to music. I head into the office at 9:10, we have a morning meeting with my amazing staff and then we help others through Chiropractic from 9:30-12:30. I go home at lunch, eat, rest (sometimes nap :), and then head back to the office at 2:40. We help others from 3-6 then I head home to have dinner with my family. We hang out as a family until around 8:30, then kids get ready for bed, after that I read (maybe play a game of Madden on Xbox), write and get to bed around 10:30-11.  Fridays are “my day” so I do whatever it takes to relax and recharge. Saturday and Sundays are filled with family time, sports, sometimes we hang out with great friends and family too!

  1. What is your favourite quote?

Too many to pick a #1 favorite…Lately, the lines from Mumford and Sons “Below My Feet” have been resonating with my life: “Keep the earth below my feet. For all my sweat, my blood runs week. Let me learn from where I have been. Keep my eyes to serve my hands to learn.” I love this because it’s reminders are powerful: STAY HUMBLE, KNOW YOU NEED HELP SOMETIMES, LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES, SERVE OTHERS, KEEP LEARNING.”

  1. Biggest accomplishment in 2017?

I finished my manuscript for my first book. It is in editing now 🙂

  1. And, what is your top goal for 2018?

Publish my book, grow as a person, accept the SERENITY of life (If you haven’t ever picked a 1 word for your year, I highly recommend it.
