30 Days of Love - Day 1: Mimi

The 30 Day Countdown to BlogBlast 4 Peace begins!

Blog4Peace 2015 is Nov 4!

This years theme is Peace and the Power of Love.

As part of this year's theme, we are invited to participate in the Peace and The Power of Love Challenge. For the next 30 days from October 4, 2015 to November 4, 2015, Mimi has challenged us to be present for love. She asks us to consciously and with purpose and intent to notice the ways we express love to one another and to affirm the peace it brings into our lives.

Mimi began the peace blogging challenge this year by answering the questions, "Who is your person?" and "Who is the one person in my life who inspires me to love?" To read her answers go to http://mimiwrites.blogspot.com/2015/10/take-30-days-of-love-challenge_1.html.

So, who is YOUR person?

My person is, of course, Mimi (and no I am not trying to be cheesy or lame).  Nine years ago Mimi started the Peace movement with a simple request. Mimi wanted to know what would happen if all bloggers everywhere signed their name across an Earth globe and what would happened if every one of those globes were posted on the same day.  Well, at first I though this was just an insane idea. What made one person think they could change the world?  I really didn't want to be a part of something that would never work.

But then I sat down and thought about it.  One person can make a difference and can make an even bigger difference if supported by like minded people.  Mimi wants world peace...I want world peace.  So why not work together to achieve that goal?!   Mimi has helped to open my eyes and to think more outside the box.  I am thankful for her and her mission in life.  I am thankful to call her my friend.

  1. Shannon - The feeling is mutual. You inspire me with your dedication to peace every single year. You inspire me with your thoughtful posts and graphics and your wisdom and wit. Your willingness to share how you feel is admirable. Not everyone is that brave. I am honored to call you my friend. We, collectively, DO make a difference. Peace bloggers like you keep me fired up and moving forward.
    I am humbled to read your kind words. Thank you for helping me stay the course. I am thankful for you too!
    Mimi
