I: Inspire

A2Z-BADGE [2016]


Inspiration works best as a two way street. Sometimes other people inspire us. They encourage us to hang in there when we’re facing difficulties. They inspire us to reach higher than we thought possible and to shoot for the stars.

Sometimes the energy of inspiration flows in the other direction and we are the ones inspiring others.

Here are a few thoughts for the day.

Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be. Ralph Waldo Emerson

I left acting for a couple of years to found my company, Wayfarer, and the first project I did was this documentary series I created called ‘My Last Days’ to remind us that our time is limited and to inspire us to do more and to be the best selves that we can be. Justin Baldoni

As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life. Amy Poehler

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. —Maya Angelou

If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. —Booker T. Washington

Today, is someone inspiring you? Reach out and let them know. Give them a word of thanks. Let them know that they’ve helped encourage you.

Are you inspiring anyone in your life? Look around. Is there someone who could use an uplifting comment? A shoulder? A word of encouragement?

Let the energy of inspiration flow through you today, in both directions, in giving and in receiving.

    I like the Maya Angelou quote but also balanced by “actions speak louder than words”. One of the great things about the GeneaBlogging community is its ability to inspire and lift us up…and hopefully we all contribute to that..

    I’m enjoying your “embracing life” A to Z.
