Recently I’ve been thinking a great deal about inspiration. I guess that’s because I’ve been inspired in many and various ways in the past few weeks: I saw a weekend of theatre; I discovered a blog that’s all about inspiration; I saw The King’s Speech.
I’ve even been inspired by playing Words with Friends.
I’ve been inspired by a friend who got a brand new job…the kind of job that fits him perfectly…the kind of job for which he has dreamed. I’ve been inspired by watching hard working young men see their dreams come true in the NFL draft.
I’ve been inspired by some Twitter friends who are currently attending a seminar to improve their public speaking. I’ve been inspired by a friend who recently celebrated the one year anniversary of starting her own business.
I’ve been inspired by looking out at a congregation on Easter Sunday morning filled with people of different ages, races, and financial backgrounds. I’ve been inspired by someone bravely facing serious illness and surgery.
I’ve been inspired by Seth Godin whose book I just read. I’ve been inspired by a brand new baseball season and a brand new computer that makes my work so much easier.
I’ve been inspired by the college students I teach. I’ve been inspired by the men I have the privilege of mentoring.
I’ve even been inspired by two new windshield wipers on my car. (I’m a little obsessed with a perfectly clean windshield on a rainy day.)
But today I’m really curious as to what it is that has recently inspired you. I genuinely want to be inspired by your inspirations.
Would you please leave a comment below and let me know how you have been inspired in the past days and weeks?
