July Plunge: Sparkle ON!

Well, Plunge Peeps, I missed July 1.

Amidst all the craziness of the summer (and riding my bike 100 miles in one day on July 4 – YIPPEE! Cross it off my 40 things I’m doing in the year I turn 40 list!) and well, just sometimes losing my mind…

I forgot to post the July Plunge!

I am shaking my head right now! It is July 6, and we’ve lost 5 days that we could be changing the world! Shaking our circles of influence! Moving hearts around us!

Well, it’s never too late.

It’s never too late to start making a positive change in your own life and the lives of others.

And in the middle of all kinds of social media uproar, I want to challenge you to do something I’ve already challenged you to do MANY times: just in a different way.


We’re going to be MORE POSITIVE than ever, Plunge Peeps. If you haven’t been keeping up with the monthly Plunges, if you’re new, if you haven’t really been participating…


Now, more than ever, we need people on social media who want to inspire, motivate, and promote positivity in ways that will encourage others to inspire, motivate, and promote positivity!

So here are your 3 Plunges this month.

And I need you to DO THESE. For the sake of your friends, your family, your sphere of influence.


Commit to only posting positive, motivating, and inspiring thoughts, pictures, and videos on social media. If you already do it, AMP IT UP!!! Work hard to find particularly positive pieces to motivate others.


Outside of social media, watch your words, your language, your heart when you are talking with others. It is okay to have an opinion. Just be positive. When you practice being positive, it becomes a habit.  And it will help YOU become the best version of yourself.


Make it your goal to encourage ONE person every day.  Perhaps you leave a comment on Facebook, write a note of encouragement and send it in the mail, maybe you go out of your way to compliment a stranger.

The world needs more kindness, more SPARKLE. Use your platform to motivate others to be better versions of themselves. And in order to do that, you have to be the best version of yourself.

I’ve written a couple other posts about positivity – you can check them out here:
