Welcome to Day 12 of 31 Extraordinary Days to Be… Or…simply: Be…
Together, we will learn to Be… to live fully and beautifully in our “skin” and in
our homes and beyond. If you missed The Introduction or you’d like to follow
the entire series, you can find each post listed here.
I coined the phrase “Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary.” in 1992. Every time I shared about Longaberger at a home show I also shared that phrase. Hundreds of ladies heard the phrase and many of my friends today still might reference it on occasion.
It seems that everyone wants to be extraordinary. Just the other day my husband quoted an ad he saw while watching football game. Evidently that college’s tagline is very close to mine.
Why is there all this interest in being extraordinary? I sure don’t know.
But, one thing I know for sure…. extraordinary people have an extraordinary outlook on life. They may or may not have success according to the world’s standards. But, there is no doubt that they live life to the full.
Day 12 Challenge: What are you doing to live an Extraordinary life? Are you living life to the full? If not, what’s in your way. What would it take for you to change your ordinary into Extraordinary?

It was another Extraordinary Week on the blog!
I’m really enjoying our #31Days series. Though I must say the posts are more intensive.
Our weekly wrap up included a few extraordinary words and then on Sunday we talked about how to have true joy and contentment. Then I served up a delicious cake and got everyone thinking about hospitality in a whole new way. On Day 8 I shared my secret to contentment (and it’s not browsing at Michael’s). We all agree we need a bit of encouragement and I asked you to help me come up with 51 ways to be an encourager. You know I love to set a pretty table, and my new cable knit sweater pumpkins were the centerpiece. And we wrapped up the week talking about how to be strong for the troubles that come our way.
Humbled and blessed.
There’s nothing like a little recognition to put a smile on my face. What a lovely blessing to get featured at these lovely link parties:
Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!
