What Inspires You?
I wanted to take some time and share with you the people, words, images and videos that have inspired me over the years and helped get me through some tough times during my reconstruction.
I also wanted to ask: What inspires you?
If any of the following things speak to or touch you, I’d love to hear about it via twitter or facebook. If you have any favorites of your own, send them my way! I love discovering new, inspiring things.
Be Like A Child [The Reconstruction Series]
I stumbled on a quote about 15 years ago that struck a chord and recently came to be a mantra for my life.
It’s attributed to the author Joseph Heller, and he said:
“When I grow up, I want to be a little boy.”
Dealing With Death
Death in our society is a big problem. It’s a disease. It’s something we do our absolute best to avoid. When it happens to someone we know, we mope around, keep it quiet and sweep it under the rug, never to be mentioned again.
But what if we took a different attitude toward it? What if dying became a celebration and a source of joy rather than something to lament?
