Sometimes I think that there can be no other word that could so easily make or break any one thing than the word inspiration. What I mean by this is that inspiration can provide fuel for the fire and a lack of it can really break a creative streak. It’s like that in sports as well because, when a team has inspiration, they play all that much harder to get that victory…I wouldn’t want to be up against an opponent that has everything to gain and nothing to lose in sports. Sometimes it’s a family member, a friend, or something we’ve seen along the way during our day that inspires us; whatever that thing is, it’s there to get us going.
A good old story about faith, despite the odds, is something that will get me nearly every time; think of the person without much of a chance against a really bad diagnosis and then, with people surrounding him, or her, the person decides to live the rest of life to the fullest…Then, against all odds, recovers from the illness. That kind of story can just as easily inspire someone to do more with their lives just because it becomes an example to others who hear the story and it has an impact on them. Thinking about it, impact is what every person is really looking for because we all want to be known and leave an imprint from our time on this world; I don’t really care for fame, but it would sure be nice to have an impact by inspiring someone.
Stuff sometimes happens that we have no personal control over and we get all uptight about it; I’ve done this so many times it’s getting pathetic to say the least. Sometimes what we need is someone to be there for us and let us fire away with our concerns & troubles; I’m saying this as the kind of person that finds sharing a little harder to do than most. Maybe there’s a reason why we need others because I’m thinking that there’s really no way we can do this on our own; all I can say is that if you need help, get some. For the rest of us, get out there, get inspired, and get do doing stuff that might just inspire someone & lift their spirits.
