Sundays are generally my lazy days with the family and I tend to do a lot of thinking when I'm sitting around doing nothing. Today, I was inspired and spent a lot of time thinking about this young man and his confidence.

So what inspires you? It could be a video, a song, a quote or someone's actions. We can all use more inspiration.

I find myself very easily inspired, I think because I find myself always applying whatever I've seen/heard/read/met to me and seeing where I do and don't fit. Sometimes the very same things discourage me though!

Right now I'm touched by the owner of Rockin' Baby and others like her, to have a desire and a dream to help others AND THEN ACTUALLY DO IT! I don't know how to do that~I think I'm more of a bringer?

Shin Dong-hyuk inspires me greatly, to come from birth in a North Korean prison camp, escape, and then have the courage to work for change is incredible!

I have a friend who has worked a long time for religious freedom for all poeple all around the world. I love that she's a Christian woman, but the organization she's founding is not a Christian organization, and she works closely with many people of many faiths. I cannot tell you how many times I've encountered Christians who wouldn't participate in what effects the greater good because it didn't come from a Christian organization. Disgusting!!!!!

So that's my head TODAY. Next week I'll have read or seen something different....

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

Those are awesome. I tend to be really inspired by people who go outside of my comfort zone, which is pretty tiny. So, I'm pretty easily inspired by kids (and adults for that matter) who face difficult diseases/handicaps with amazing attitudes, people who rise up from difficult circumstances and succeed, and people who sacrifice in order to help others.

How could I forget about artist Makoto Fujimura?!!! LOVE THAT MAN! His writings move me ALWAYS. Here's a link to his commencement address at a college, but don't stop there!
