Inspirational List


In figuring out what to write about I’ve combined two ideas from two separate posts:

1. Make a list.

2. What/who inspires you?

Here is a list of what and who inspires me…

* My children, young children, old people, wise people, teachers

* Open-minded discussions on religion, theology, spirituality, psychology, belief systems

* Good friends, new friends, nice people

* Kindness, compassion

* Love of life, relationship, garden, writing

* Sunny days, soft breezes, water views

* Flowers – color, fragrance, silken petals

* Beauty – paintings, drawings, faces, trees, peaceful moments, smiles, hand holding

* Learning: from – books, life, strangers, friends, stories, seminars, nature, writing

* Myself – writing and publishing, introspection and analysis, traveling tough roads, starting anew every morning

Consider making your own inspirational list. Let me know what inspires you!

  1. I’m inspired by other people and their art. I love visiting art galleries–it tells me what’s out there, and expands my own idea of possibility. I always feel like coming back home and creating something new!

    Keep visiting galleries, Celia! It’s good to have a sense of inspiration, so we can replenish when needed. Thanks for commenting!

    I am inspired… in life… by the gifts from God I have been given. That would be my three beauties I was allowed to carry to term, the twin I miscarried and the relationships that have come, child-wise even though the connecting sperm donor is not worthy of the flesh that covers him. I am inspired by the sacrifices my son made and what that sacrifice might bring to close for others. I am inspired by the bravery of my would-be daughter-in-law. I am inspired by my other two children, my daughters, surviving this mess called life. I am furthermore inspired by the police officers and those in the D.A.’s office who fight for those wronged. I am inspired by the break of the sun through the clouds – it is called the Theophanas [God’s light] and the fact the the sun still comes up in the morning, even on days I wished it was as dark outside as I was inside.

      Sounds like your belief in God has gotten you and your family through tough times. And still does. Inspiration is a gift that can help all of us when, as you say, “the sun still comes up in the morning, even on days I wished it was as dark outside as I was inside.” Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment.

    Greetings from one boomer to another!
    Love your list and the idea of making a similar list of my own. I made a list in response to one of the Writing 101 prompts (day 4, I think) and it was fun (although very different from yours), and thinking of my life in terms of what’s been lost over 65 years gave me a lot to ponder. Since today’s assignment is the second part (installment) of the “loss prompt”, I guess I should make a list of what I’ve found.
    I enjoy your blog…I’ll visit it again. (I was going to say, “I’ll be back,” but as I wrote it I suddenly felt like Arnold Schwarzenegger.)

    • wendykarasin says:

      Hello fellow boomer! Since Arnold is not my favorite person, visiting again sounds great – perhaps even following? I’m glad you enjoyed the list. I think making your own sounds good, I intend to make more of them, too. They change. I’d be interested in your pondering and the list of what you’ve found. Stay in touch and thanks for stopping by!
