Inspiration

“Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.”
Anais Nin

Personally, I am inspired by the good people in my life who I adore, who remind me every day that it takes all kinds.

That would be:

My husband, my children (2 of the most unique and talented people I know), my amazingly diverse group of good friends, and the motley crew of truly inspiring co-workers, customers, colleagues, and neighbors that color my days.

I am inspired by the community I live in, and by the general goodness in all of us. This city is so full of good people it’s bursting at the seams. It’s my hope to continue to meet more of them on the journey.

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
Anais Nin

After so many years of hard work just to live, this project was inspired by the need to find more purpose, and to fulfill the desire to be of service to others and to the world.

I wanted to change. And I wanted to heal. And most of all I wanted to do something that mattered.

Giving just feels so good! That’s pretty inspiring, and truthfully, the kind of feeling you don’t mind getting addicted to 🙂

Thanks for checking out this page – you just might inspire someone today yourself….you never know!
