A few things that inspire me

At the beginning of the year, I resolved to do one “inspiration” post a month, blogging on something or someone or some incident that inspires me. Well, almost half way through the year, here’s my second one…on just a few [of the many] things that inspire me…

– my dad

– reading good writing

– sitting and watching the world walk by

– watching a sunset from beginning to end, not doing anything but just watching all the colors as they fade in and out

– cooking, eating and sharing creative food

– traveling

– listening

– feeling the wind in my hair

– the stories of people who started small and made something big

– Light

– people who laugh honestly and from deep within

music that moves my body whether I will it or not

– the love of my poodle

– clouds

– memories

– the feeling of frivolity I get from squeals atop Ferris wheels and catching fireflies in the summer of sixteen

What inspires you?

    Abigail - YOU are one of the many things (or people I should say) that inspires me! And definitely catching fireflies in the summer of sixteen 😉
