Seriously, have you given any thought recently to what inspires you the most?
It’s important and necessary in your life to be inspired by others. Inspiration is the emotional fuel that keeps you going on those hard days. Whether it be a word or deed from someone you know or someone/thing you’ve heard or read about, it makes no difference. It’s the “something” that so moves you emotionally, (in a positive way) that life seems a little better, and more doable in that moment.
For me, what inspires are the following:
Love inspires me. Beauty inspires me. Bravery inspires me. The human spirit of never giving up inspires me. Tenderness inspires me. Happiness inspires me. Caring people making a difference inspires me. Thoughtfulness inspires me.
A smile inspires me. A mother and/or father caring for their family inspires me. Children Inspire me. The aged and elderly inspire me. a young adult woman or man just starting to explore their world inspires me.
The changing seasons inspire me. Nature inspires me. Animals inspire me.
LIFE … all life inspires me!
A quote by one of the most inspirational people (in the world) alive today. My good fortune to have met and shared a small amount of time with him:
“Love is the absence of judgment.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV
I ask you once again. Who or what in your life inspires you? Good to know, appreciate and be grateful for.

Penny from “The Why About This” inspires me each and every day! She posted a lovely piece on inspiration that I just had to re-blog this post. One needs Inspiration when struggling and dealing with health issues, and this is why I wanted to share this with you. To each and everyone of you that follow me and stop by to read my posts: Thank you! You inspire me. If it were not for you and for people like Penny, my blog would not exist. I hope that you enjoy Penny’s post on inspiration. Thank you Penny for this post which is at a time when I need it! Hugs and love to you my dear friend! Jane
You inspire me Penny!
Your a sweetie!
I’d have to say I judge a book or movie by how it inspires me. If it does it goes in a good-read/watch category. I also get inspire when I can go outside or take a car ride. Mostly though, trees inspire me.
Hi Nina. I like the way you think. And trees, yes, I agree so incredibly inspiring, on so many levels! Thanks for sharing.
All different things inspire me. Even the word “inspire can be inspirational.
Enjoy your weekend Penny
Yes, and you are inspiring (for me) as well dear friend! 🙂 xo
Thank you for saying so Penny.
