Here are two things that have inspired me recently:
Is it bad that I get teary eyed whenever I read this? There was a similar poster at Marshals and I actually started crying in the middle of the store after reading it. But then again, I cry when the deli guy puts ketchup on my egg sandwich, so I guess my tears are cheap.
He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed
often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect
of intelligent men, and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty or
failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it.
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or
a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life is an inspiration;
Whose memory is a benediction.
– Elisabeth-Anne Anderson Stanley
I can stop blogging ’cause she just said everything I needed to say. Oh well. I guess I’ll keep going.
I hope you stumble upon some inspiration today 🙂
