What Inspires You

I find inspiration through so many areas in my life. My kids have always been my inspiration, trying to see things thru their eyes as they were growing up. Now that they are grown, I find inspiration in other areas, with arts & crafts, with nature & with relationships.

I am fascinated by relationships of all types, happy ones, complicated ones & unusual ones. I often attempt to dissect the meaning behind something that has happened or to describe a particular feeling or emotion. My favorite saying is that everything happens for a reason.


My own inspiration has come at different stages of my life. I really do love arts & crafts. I will go to our local Michael’s or Ben Franklin, see a crafting project and want to make it. I want to always be learning and to always be inspired to make things out of nothing. I am so proud when I finish the project and have learned so many new things in the process.

My other inspiration has been with the people who I meet. I will always say hi to people, ask them how they are, be the one person to smile, or tell them to have a nice day. I inspire to be a better person to others because I know that you can affect someones day just by how you treat them. Why not try to send some positive energy and inspiration to others.

Another way to find your inspiration is to go on hikes or walks. You can enjoy the scenery & just to get outside and get some exercise has been proven to have so many benefits. It inspires you to think more, and has some great health benefits for the exercise.
