Now that January is almost over, and our remnants of the holiday season are safely stored away, have you embraced the new year?
I have, and one of the reasons is because of the wonderful encouragement and support I have received from my readers.
What is the definition of inspiration? There are many, but I love this one:
“An uplifting influence on another person’s intellect, feelings or imaginativeness.”
I love reading, and, of course, writing. In many ways, reading allows us to armchair travel to exotic locales, cultivating excitement and inspiration along the way through our heroes and heroines.
Who needs inspiration?
Everyone. Your best friend, your children, your significant other. We can never offer too much inspiration and encouragement.
How can we offer inspiration?
By a light touch or word of comfort to a friend.
Sending cheerful emails.
Showing up at a hospital to cheer a loved one.
Quietly listening when your teenager complains.
Reminding your husband or significant other how special they are.
And lastly, as we begin this new year, evaluating the past with a different point of view. Go easy on yourself.
There is a bright 2020 future ahead, just waiting to be explored.
Is there someone in your life you can inspire this week? Please leave your comments below.
