Inspiration From a Friend

Some days I have NO IDEA where my inspiration comes from and yet I have insane bursts of energy and focus and do 10 amazing things for my career in one day.  Other times I have to trick myself into just getting my butt to the gym!  There are a few ladies in my life right now that I need to give a shout out to.  These women are strong, focused and honest, and their accomplishments and drive help me to stay on track when I lose the plot.  Today I'm going to focus on one particular lady who continually inspires me and whose story needs to be heard.



Krysten Siba-Bishop This gorgeous woman and former roomie of mine has been fighting a genetic battle like you wouldn't believe.  She is the reason that I started a blog in the first place.  Not only does she have Long QT Syndrom and a pacemaker, she is also undergoing a double preventative mastectomy on March 5th.  Her blog "MisAdventures of a Darwinian Fail" is an absolute inspiration and is filled to the brim with her bubbly personality, stories that will keep you grounded, grateful, and inspired, and other fun stuff like healthy recipes and workout tunes.  Click on her name to visit her amazing blog and you will be hooked.

When I was little, and I had to do something that scared me or that was really hard, I would make a pledge to do it for someone that I loved and cared about.  It's like in Yoga when sometimes you dedicate your practice to someone.  I think I need to start doing more of that.  So today - the work I'm going to do, I'm doing it for Krysten.
