    What Inspires Me!


    First of all I am inspired by lots of positive things and sometimes some negative things inspire me.


    I get inspired by a picture that I see on Facebook or a Twitter Tweet, why? Well I like to know that other people are taking the time to be creative and embrace their creativity.


    I enjoy reading How To Articles and Books because they too inspire me to want to try to do something different and knowing that someone has tried this method make the tasks achievable.


    I get inspired when I interview a Recording Artist, Author or Publicist on my BlogTalkRadio show because they always have a story to tell in regards to why they have chosen their profession and willing to tell the pros and cons.


    I get inspired when I see a handicapped person being independent, going to work or just shopping because I know some people that were born without a handicap that do not do half as much or even put forth the effort to be independent.


    I get inspired when I look at my youngest son knowing that I gave birth to him while I was over 40 years of age. I was able to beat all of the odds that are associated with women giving birth to healthy babies when they are over 40 years old. One of the main concerns my Doctor had was him being born with Autism.


    I can listen to a song and get inspired to travel, take a walk or even write an article not about the song but the song gives me the inspiration and the energy to want to do something.


    I get inspired when I hear rags to riches stories that assure me that it is never too late to become rich and famous. Rags to riches stories keep me focused when I start to feel like I will never reach my goals.


    I get inspired when I see someone that I know share some outstanding news because I know if they can have some great news to share then soon it will be my time to share some awesome news.


    I get inspired when I look at the job skills I have acquired over the years and know that at any given time I can obtain a job in just about any field and feel confident that I can do the job over and above what is expected.


    I get inspired when I look back and realized that I am free from a domestic violence relationship and feel confident that I made the right choice to leave when I did.


    I get inspired when I read articles based on people that have helped someone escape danger while putting themselves at risk.


    Some negative things inspire me as well, for example seeing people high on Crack Cocaine and knowing the effects it has on their appearances and their life in general has kept me away from the drug scene.


    Over the years I have learned that inspiration can come from a variety of things and/or situations.


    One of the biggest inspirations of them all is the ability to write down my feelings rather they are good or bad so that I can use as a daily reference so that I do not make the same mistakes twice.


    I will continue to use my BlogTalkRadio show to allow others the chance to be an inspiration to people like me that has an open mind.
