WORD OF THE WEEK: INSPIRE

This week's word is I N S P I R E... so appropriate for this time year. A time to hit the refresh button, to evaluate and determine what's working in our lives and what isn't. It's the perfect time to clear out the old and allow ourselves to be INSPIRED by the possibilities right in front us. With all of this purging, releasing and renewing... who knows?... we may just be INSPIRING others as well.

1. to make someone want to do something : to give someone an idea about what to do or create2. to cause something to happen or be created. 3. to cause someone to have a feeling or emotion.

“Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Creative thinking inspires ideas. Ideas inspire change." ~Barbara Januszkiewicz

"Aspire to inspire before you expire."

   Chelsea Hipley -   Inspiration, for me, comes in all ways, shapes and forms. But my biggest source of inspiration comes from my Mom. She never ceases to amaze me with what she continues to accomplish in her own life. She has taught me countless life lessons and I am the person I am today because of her love and guidance.
