is for Zeal
Zeal is something I admire in a lot of people, but I think I'm lacking a bit in my own life.
Where do people get the zeal to do so many amazing and crazy things?
Run a marathon.
Climb Mt. Everest.
Dedicate their whole life to a cause.
Is zeal something you think the world needs more of? What brings out the zeal in you?
I've loved participating in the A to Z blog. You guys are all amazing!
Here's what's coming up on my blog:
May 1 - Blog tour stop for Author Cindy Hogan and her novel "Protected."
May 7 - My wrap-up of the A to Z Challenge.
**Do Not Miss** Monday, May 14, I will launch an awesome contest that anyone can enter, and anyone can win. Details on the 7th.
Check out my March Limerick Contest for an idea of what to expect.
Lovely way to wrap up A-Z. Looking forward to whatever comes next and it's been very nice indeed to meet you over the last month.ReplyDelete
Very nice to meet you too! Thanks for joining me.Delete
I've used my zeal to focus on this challenge. I just hope the emotion will remain when I return to finish off my latest novel.ReplyDelete
It did take a lot of effort to complete this challenge. But I really enjoyed myself.Delete
I think finishing this challenge was pretty awesome and zealous. Glad we both made it! It's been GREAT reading your posts this challenge! Looking forward to more.ReplyDelete
This challenge took a lot more time than I was expecting. Thanks for stopping by!Delete
I wish I had more zeal. I have some but it's just kinda hidden. :)ReplyDelete
Hidden zeal is still good. :)Delete
Great last post and a great z word. I could use more of it too!ReplyDelete
When you have small children, they tend to use up all your zeal.Delete
Amen. People do amazing things in this world, and lots of it is thanks to zeal! This has been an awesome series you did!ReplyDelete
You win the award for most faithful follower. I don't think you've missed a single post! Congratulations! You Win! We should go to JCWs and celebrate!Delete
Hello, Great Z post. Yes, people can accomplish amazing things with zeal. But you do have Zeal. You have the zeal to publish great blog posts consistently. It was a pleasure meeting you on this challenge, and I for one will pop back in to see what you are up to.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your posts as well. Thanks for stopping by and I'll be seeing around. So nice to meet you.Delete
Zeal can take you very far! Loved your posts this month.ReplyDelete
Congrats on a great AtoZ! You did it, and I've enjoyed reading your posts! :DReplyDelete
Congrats for completing the Challenge. Phew!ReplyDelete
What a great way to end the challenge, Julie! You do have zeal! I admire people who work hard for the things they love and believe in. That's a very American trait that I strive to achieve in my life. I hope my children never give up on their dreams. To work and work and love what they do. Without love and passion, there can't be zeal. Right?ReplyDelete
We did it!!!! Yea! Congratulations! And thanks for reading my posts! I really enjoyed reading yours, too! And thanks for including me in your "Best of" on May 2!ReplyDelete
I hope it is a zombie or horror contest!!!ReplyDelete
Ummm, I think zeal is on the rise when you think of all the people trying to protest many things in our world and I think that is a very difficult thing to judge because we don't know what goes on in the inside, just the outside and they may not show zealousness very well...Great post and congrats on making it to the end!ReplyDelete
We did it! It was a blast - congratulations!!!ReplyDelete
I feel like I am not zealous enough, and I often just let tiredness take over! But I think the zeal just comes when you are passionate about something. Congrats on finishing the challenge!ReplyDelete

What a great word to close out the challenge. I wish I had more zeal:)ReplyDelete
You are incredible and certainly show some'zeal' for life. Glad to have met you. I'll be back.ReplyDelete
I love zeal! This is fabulous! I do think I could use more of it, but the people who have it, truly amaze me!ReplyDelete
I think there are some people with a little too much zeal, and a great many with not nearly enough. If we could just find a way to balance it out a bit...ReplyDelete
The Funnily Enough
Congrats on making it to the end! Take care.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on making it to the end!ReplyDelete
