I received one of those beautiful emails today with the power point pictures and wonderful wording to go along, you know, the stuff that really makes you think.
One of the phrases/quotes was: 'Aspire to inspire before you expire'
I just love that!
It got me thinking about all the things that inspire me. I'm inspired by a smile or friendly gesture. I'm inspired by someone's committment to something they believe in. I'm inspired by someone's thoughtfulness and kindness. I'm inspired daily by all the artists who share their work, talent and time via the internet.
I'm inspired by others intelligence and knowledge. I'm inspired by others' ability to forgive. I'm even inspired at funerals when I hear all the wonderful things that the late soul did that touched so many and I hope there will be something nice to say when my time comes :)
I'm inspired by others' courage when facing things in life I'm just not sure I could handle.
My children inspire me. My 3 beautiful grandchildren inspire me. My friends inspire me.
Oh boy, the list is endless!!
What inspires you?
