Recognizing Inspirational People

Inspiration is a magnificent thing! It comes in so many different forms & is something completely different from one person to the next. It is what compels you to do something. . . It's what pushes you further along than you ever thought possible, or to pick up & try again after you've been knocked down for what seems like one too many times. It's what gives you the energy to brainstorm that great idea & what gives you hope & the smile on your face.

For me, inspiration comes in the form of how I feel when I've done something well or accomplished something I've set my mind to & worked my ass off for. That feeling is one of the most wonderful things & it has the power to keep me floating along a path to more good things (when I keep The Bitch from ruining it, that is!). But, mostly, my inspiration comes from the people around me. . . Let me explain.

I've set goals, but they either haven't been properly documented or haven't been significant enough to be thoroughly passionate about. Then, I came across Bailey Jean's 101 in 1001 list & I realized that's what I should be doing! Don't they say something about how the best form of flattery is imitation? Or something like that. . . LOL 😉 I have made the commitment to have my list ready by the end of the month or so. 😉

On Purpose: Getting Passionate

When I read today's prompt for the Blog-tember Challenge, I couldn't help but think how extremely broad it seemed (in my opinion). . .

“I am passionate about ______________. “

I am passionate about so many things! I asked myself, “How can I even start to narrow this down?!” Then a thought struck me. . .

Several weeks ago, I started a series of posts, scheduled for every Friday. (Coincidence that today also happens to be a Friday? I think not!) This series is called “On Purpose.” (To get a better understanding of what it is all about, please read the introductory post here.)

On Purpose

These posts have helped me tremendously in becoming more purposeful & — perhaps even more importantly for me — being able to measure my productivity in staying purposeful & living intentionally, rather than letting life happen to me. This is something I have become quite passionate about (among many other things, of course)! It is imperative that I make sure I stay productive & do not stagnate — or even feel like I am stuck. It's quite a big deal in my world & a huge factor in whether I feel happy. Read More »On Purpose: Getting Passionate
