I’ve been blogging for well over a year and a half to date and there is one thing that has remained constant. My blogger boo Iva. I am not certain how she found me, but, she has been such an inspiration and encouragement to me. I would not be the same without her tireless support. That is straight talk with no chaser! Today, this tribute is for her.
She is one dynamic and blessed individual who feeds me in more ways than one. When I visit her blog, The Neuroscience Newbie it is a true educational lesson. The stuff she shares is beyond insightful, it is well researched information and pure wisdom. She is so dedicated to her craft that she spends no less than ten hours a week finding out all she can on a single topic.
I honestly believe that she has a big brain that is going to lead her to big things (believe that). Don’t believe me, check out her latest post, “Research Corner: Brain Vessels Connecting to Our immune System Found.” it is Ingenious to say the least. She goes into detail about how researchers at a Virginia School of Medicine have learned that the brain is connected to the immune system by vessels that they did not formerly know existed or worked together. This could impact debilitating diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological disorders. I loved one statement the most, “We are going to have to change the textbooks.” That my friends is innovation and evolution at it’s finest. Break the mold people and elevate the cause.
Our brains are meticulous, intricate, divine and amazing so, why would we use it on frivolous things and not stretch it and expand our knowledge base? Having said that, I challenge you to expand your learning outside of the norm, I mean read something new that will pique your curiosity a lot. The stuff that initially will make you say, “No way!”
Iva is my friend and I admire her because she is feisty and a firecracker like me, BOOM! We get it said, we get it done and we keep it moving while loving those around us with passion, support and sincerity.
Today, I salute this Beautiful Soul, my friend and supporter, Lady Iva. Check her out on Twitter.
Move Forward in RIGHTeousness XOXO♥
