For one of my classes, I had to write a blog on inspiration and who inspires me in my life. I thought I would include it in my regular blog...
Inspiration is a complex word with a lot of different connotations to it. To inspire. To inspire someone? A group? A moment? To be an inspiration? Which is it?
I have always associated inspiration with an idea. But it has always been the motivation to act on that inspiration that has been the tough part for me. I don’t know if it is the fear of rejection, or the fear of the unknown, but at times in the past I have had a hard time just going for it.
I also associate inspiration with someone you look up to. But for me, I have never really looked up to anyone in particular. Not to sound pessimistic, but in my experience, the more faith you put into one person, the more you are setting yourself up for disappointment. That is why in my life, I have taken bits and pieces of inspiring characteristics from different people that have been influential in my life.
