{mini-view: inspired to share}

Happy Monday! For my US folks, did you have a wonderful turkey day? Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend. Now, the holidays are in full swing. November will come to a close at the end of this week and that ending can only mean one thing, a new Mini-View! Please give Colleen of Inspired to Share a very warm welcome. Here's a story you'll love. A couple months ago, I was having breakfast with the lovely Jennifer Chong at a cafe around the corner from where we both live. Jennifer mentioned that Colleen was visiting Southern California and the two of them were planning to meet up later for coffee. Unbeknownst to any of us, Colleen and her husband were sitting just a table away in the same cafe! Two ships passing in the night. Even though Colleen and I never did get the chance to meet in person (darn it!), it feels like kismet to have Colleen participate in the next Mini-View installment. On top of all of that, Colleen's blog, Inspired to Share, is full of great recipes, creative spotlights, lifestyle inspiration, and words of wisdom. Please stop by when you get the chance. Ok, without further ado, herewith is Colleen's Mini-View:

Colleen, thank you so much for sharing this Mini-View with us. As I mentioned to you, I can relate to so many of your answers, especially, "That I won't live to my fullest potential" and "My indecisive, over-thinking tendencies." [smile]

Ok, everyone, happy new week!

  2. I love this mini-view! I share Colleen's fear that I won't live up to my full potential, too but I suppose that fear can be used as a catalyst to do great things. Fear can be a good thing, sometimes. As long as it doesn't involve spiders. And I so want teleportation, too! Can you imagine how much easier life would be??

    That's so funny that were at the same spot and didn't know it! I've often wished there was some sort of way to check that, some like universal registry you could go back and look at to see if you and your boyfriend/husband were ever in the same place before you met and didn't know it. Rambling side-note, I totally wish I could check that. Boyfriend's best friend lived in the same building as my dad and I'm absolutely sure we crossed paths years and years ago but neither of us would remember. xoxo

  3. I love the ships passing story! We've had a few of those...in fact, I have a nice one I'll share on the blog later this week. This is a great mini-view! I always love these and you are such a great source for inspiring people, T! I look forward to checking out such amazing blogs and finds through you. And Colleen, your Thoreau quote is one of my faves too! Hope you (both) had a wonderful holiday, dear(s).

  7. I know I say this every time but - seriously - is it that time already? I didn't even hear the whooshing sound this time!

    I love how I always find food for thought in your Mini-view participants answers. My favourite of Colleen's responses are her thoughts on regrets and her motto. So, SO true.

  11. Theresa, this is kismet! The other day I was googling, "Fashion at Alt" and somehow stumbled upon Colleen's page, and now here she is on your fabulous blog. What a truly small world! Colleen's answers, especially the one about not being afraid to fail, inspire me to reach a little bit higher today. Thanks for this beautiful post, ladies!

  12. A great mini-view from Colleen.  Some of the points I can really relate to, particularly the worry of not living life to my fullest potential.  I often ponder what that really means.  How do we know that we have lived life to our fullest?  Wouldn't there always be something else to fulfill.  Just one of life's conundrums!  Thanks for sharing T x
