Introducing... Wish! {out loud}

Hello my lovely loves!!

I hope everyone is doing well and feeling good!

*I have some really exciting news!!**

I recently got in contact with 2 INCREDIBLE ladies- Ashley over at Chickadette and Robin over at Fly Far. Fly Free. We dreamt up an idea of a really exciting way we can all connect and help each other as a community of kick booty bloggers! I can't tell you all how flipping excited I am about this collaboration so I hope you'll all get psyched and join in on the fun too. After all, this project gets its power from all of you.
We wanted to introduce it to you all this week in hopes of starting it up on Sunday, November 27th.
So, without further ado...

Wish! {out loud}

When I looked up the definition of the word wish, I was surprised to find: "Feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen."

Cannot or probably will not happen?
But everybody out there has hopes, desires, and dreams [including you]. Sometimes you wish for these hopes to come true at 11:11, on a birthday candle, or on a shooting star. Why is it that they probably won't come true?

Wish! {out loud} is a way for us to disprove that definition. It is a way for us to let the world hear our wish and make it come true.

We're such a powerful network of bloggers- we have the capacity within us to help each other make our dreams come true. Think, "playing fairy godmother." The idea is to reach out to your fellow bloggers and offer assistance as well as support.

Wish out loud
How it Works:

Start with a simple post introducing your wish. Whether you want to give a back story explaining it or simply put it out into the universe, it's completely up to you! Getting up your post that features your wish is only the beginning of this link-up though! The real magic comes from visiting the other bloggers participating... We're taking this a step beyond leaving a comment to let someone know you stopped by.

Let's say you come across a post where the writer says they've always wished they could open an Etsy shop. If this is a venture you've already conquered- reach out! Let them know how you got it started and offer to be a mentor of sorts as they make their wish come true! The possibilities are endless. Our hope is that we all step up and use our talents as well as our networking connections to grant these wishes. Whether it's posting a series of "learn to play guitar" videos for the blogger that's always wanted to learn or sending someone a board game because they want to spend more quality time with their family- no wish or answer is too big or too small. We encourage you all to get creative and to think outside the box! After all, wishes have always seemed a little magical. Let's help each other redefine "wish.”

Join us, Chickadette, Cup 'a Hot Chocolate, & Fly Far. Fly Free. every Sunday, as we share our Wish! {out loud}.




So grab the button, feel free to pass along the info, and join us next Sunday, November 27th to be part of the very first week of Wish! {out loud}.
