For our first Inspiration Sunday, I turn to Mike Rowe. Yes, that Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs fame and now, three seasons of Returning The Favor. According to their shows description, “Returning the Favor gives back to those who pay it forward with humor, heart and surprise. Because one good turn deserves another.” It is, at the very least, heartwarming and entertaining.
It is also a spotlight on those that are “bloody do-gooders” in this world where far too much negativity hogs the spotlight when folks who put themselves above others should garner a considerably higher percentage of our collective attention.
For me personally, it is a source of inspiration. The first time I caught wind of this show, I couldn’t stop watching. We were in our own 3rd running campaign and I was just in awe of the concept and as you can tell from our “run-gooders” and the concept of celebrating these runners and the good they’re doing whether it’s helping others, overcoming physical challenges, bad breaks of life, or just choosing a healthier lifestyle and becoming a rockstar in the process, there’s some parallels to this blog, albeit on a much smaller level.
The two espisodes that I’ve linked to above are two of my very favorites. Both groups serve their community in unique ways whether it’s looking out for kids without a warm bed to sleep on or by empowering our girls. I love both of these episodes. I know you will too.
