S#!%'s Getting Real

 Over the weekend I attended a Hero Conference in Brighton, Michigan with my kids. I heard some amazing speakers and was challenged to think harder about who I was and why I was making the choices that I am making in life. I was challenged not only to re-evaluate myself, but to not be ashamed of the "weaknesses" I found in myself (the ones I've been trying to hide) because those weaknesses could actually be my strengths - the reasons that I choose to do the things I do every day.

I Will Carry the Weight of Your World

Disclosure: This post has been sponsored by Champions for Kids. All opinions are my own.
Right now - within each one of us - there is an opportunity to change the world. Maybe not the entire world, but the world none the less. Each day there are kids in our communities who head off to school hungry. Each day there are kids in our community who don't know where their next meal is going to come from. Each day there are kids in our communities who would find just a single bar of soap to be a special treat. So maybe you can't change the entire world - but for that one child in your community, you can. Find out how.
