shapeimage_129.jpgWhat is it to be inspiring.? To make people want to follow your actions. Is it what you do? How you do it? When you do it? Is it a certain sence of self worth that you carry in your heart and your step? Is it your compassion for those around you? Is it your inclusive nature? Is it your own mistakes and inadequacies that boost others to great deeds?

To me, to inspire is to live with your whole being. To feel others love, and pain, to want for others what you yourself have experienced. To feel utterly humbled by your sucess, and to want others to feel that sence of peace. To know that you are living the best life that you know how, and to remind yourself of that every day, every hour.

This is a quote I have heard before, but I was reminded of by Heather at A Mama’s Blog:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

Who are we not to be inspiring? Live fully with the power of your own experiences. Know that what you are doing today is inspiration, and who you are today is brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Take hold of the power of this and smile.
