In 2001, Tracy Alva Lawder lost her mother. Two months later, 35-year-old Tracy felt tingling and numbness in her arms and legs on her entire left side. Family and friends assured her that she was probably experiencing depression or anxiety brought on by the loss of her mother. It wasnâ€™t until she went for an […]
I, and all the other writers here, typically write about children. We are “Mothers Fighting for Others,” and that usually means that, as mothers, we are fighting for children all over the world. Today, however, I’d like to be a mother fighting for other mothers – for other women. On Friday, September 25, I spent […]
Inspiring. I keep seeing this word creep up. What a compliment in the entirety to be called an inspiration to someone. I look at our own, Rocky, who is so inspiring to watch her devotion and passion to reach the girls in Kenya. While there, her sometimes simplistic tweets about things we take for granted on a daily basis make followers pause for a moment. She is making her dream happen. She is bringing the underwear. She is delivering the pencils. She is helping a child through illness and surgery. Spreading her love. The world that is so far away, Rocky brings so close to us – sharing with us about those she comes in contact with. I see numerous people mention how inspirational she is. Her passion is evident. Her intentions are pure. Her blessings are many.
Inspiring. Sarah Stanley just completed a 50-mile run (over 10 hours) while tweeting her progress with pictures. Why? It’s an easy answer for her, â€œI run 50 miles to inspire someone to run or walk 1 mile.” I got the opportunity to talk to Sarah, her passion was so clear – her intentions to help others just get off the couch radiated through the telephone. Her idea is to bring Healthy, Happy, and Fit together as one message. Just following her tweets for a day during that run had a positive influence over my future runs. And I wasn’t the only one. The conversation by so many that were affected by her life was uplifting. Allowing peeks into her life during a time of multiple emotions shows by example that you CAN do what you set your mind to. Follow Sarah’s blog and tweets to get your daily dose of inspiration.
There are so many others that can be used as examples of stellar inspirational people in the world we live. Find someone that has a similar interest to you – and learn by example. I know both Rocky & Sarah don’t bite, if you find someone you admire and want to learn more – reach out !
What is your message? What can you do to inspire others? As long as your intentions are pure – your passion and message can be whatever is closest to your heart. It might be to help the local shelters, support victims of domestic violence, volunteer your time, encourage entrepreneurs, the list is endless!
Inspiration is worldwide and incorporates many different venues of life. There are people inspiring others to read. There are mothers and fathers inspiring their children. There are teachers inspiring the students to get excited about education.
Inspire the Child. Inspire Each Other. Inspire Self.
