What You Know. And What Inspires You.

I have loved reading the comments of what you know.

Perhaps I am using an overused conundrum when I say this but I’ll say it anyway. I was inspired. Yes, inspired by the many words!

What words you live by and stand by and when the going gets tough, you recite or you remember or you hear just in the knick of time.

Sometimes I think it’s these little things that inspire us, isn’t it?

But for today, some of my favorites:

“Live like you mean it.” {Suzi}

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” {Gloria quoting Maya Angelou}

“Don’t leap before grace. Respond, don’t react.” {Heather}

“Live a life of love.” {Adrianne quoting Ephesians 5:2}

“The days may be long, but the seasons are short.” {Jen}

“Love your child for who they are, not who you want them to be”. {Stacey} I love, love, love this! It is so very, very true!

“Never take to heart the opinions of people you don’t respect.” {Darcie}

If I could give away a book to each of you that commented or emailed me, I would. But there’s just one to give away so I used my good old friend random.org to choose a winner.

Comment #5!

Luther Liz who wrote: “If you have a choice between laughing and getting mad, laugh.”

Which was another one that I truly loved. I want to remember that in the heat of frustration and where I would want to get mad, laugh instead. I want to.

I’d love to hear from others who didn’t post their thoughts. Though there is no longer a prize at stake, I still want to know. What do you know?

I also want to know, what inspires you?

I have a mile long list of things that inspire me lately. It seems a song plays at just the right moment and I am fixated and off in inspiration. I am working on composing some thoughts and sharing with you one of my newest favorite authors and the books she’s creating that resonate with me. There’s more. Like I said, a mile long list. More to come on this topic next week, the end of this week is a special time for our family and there is much to be done around here.

But in the meantime, what inspires you? Is it a book? a song? a friend or loved one? Your children’s laughter?

Please share.


  1. Music is a big inspiration for me. Love is another. The love I receive from my husband yes, but the love I see in others – my parents for example or other couples I see that have been married for so many years and you can still see how much they love each other.

  2. I find inspiration everywhere. I don't know if I can narrow it down. But, I also think that helps make life interesting by being open to see how the most random thing can inspire me.

  3. I simply want to tell you that I am just new to blogging and site-building and absolutely loved you’re web page. More than likely I’m want to bookmark your website . You definitely have excellent well written articles. Thanks a bunch for sharing your website page.
