I am so inspired, motivated, and driven by my peers. I feel like I am in the pool with a bunch of olympic swimmers and no one has noticed I have on my swim wings. You really should surround yourself with over achievers. You don't even realize it, but they push you.
Tonight I jumped over to my friend Jen's blog. Jen has been a very good friend to me for many years. She is someone I admired, looked up to, learned from and in return she made me a better employee and pushed me professionally. Most importantly, she believed in me. It was puzzling at first, then flattering, then downright motivational.
Now that we are new mommies together she continues to motivate me in new and exciting ways. She has her own photography business, she donates her time to charity, and she is an incredible stay at home mom. She's also one of my favorite bloggers.
Today's blog is exceptionally incredible. It is a tribute to her mom, Beth. I love Jen's mom too. Beth is awesome, and as a result she developed an awesome person. This apple didn't fall far from the tree. Happy Birthday Beth!!
