Who has inspired or encouraged you in your life? Did you ever tell them?
I am inspired by authentic people (whether I agree with them 100% or not) sharing real moments and feelings. Why? It seems like we live in a society that bullies or tries to destroy any one who is imperfect or portrays a weakness. They in essence make themselves vulnerable to speculation and then hordes of dissenters rain down in an effort to squish out their light. A light that someone else is begging to see…
People who are introverts but go out of their way to do an act of kindness – for nothing in return… with no hidden agenda other than to do good in the world.
People who have faced great loss or a tragedy… but have the courage to get up again and battle the impossible.
Sometimes it can be a chance meeting where they pass on some valuable words or advice and then I never see them again.
Sometimes it comes in the form of a friend, colleague, or mentor who calls often and reminds you it can be done. Sometimes it’s a look on a battlefield with some one you know has your back.
Sometimes it’s a child (yours or someone’s else) and sometimes it’s the spirit of a child we see in some one that gives us permission to be ourselves and become something greater than we were before.
