This is a photo of my small inspiration board on the wall in front of my ‘inspirational space’. I put that in quotes because it’s simply a table in our what could be a dining room in our small apartment. It’s a bit chaotic, but so are my thoughts, so it works for me!
There is an article pinned to it in the upper corner; that article inspires daily! I even wrote “do what you love” on the pencil in the picture. The article is a short blurb and interview with Caroline Weaver. Ms. Weaver has no idea who I am; she has no reason to. I have never met her, never been in her shop, I live over 1,000 miles away, and I have never owned a pencil collection. So why does Ms. Weaver (Caroline) inspire me? It’s pretty much summed up in her blog link above; she is doing what she loves, even though she had fear and concern how she would be received. I think we all feel that way, but she did it anyway…she felt the fear…she accepted it and she made her dream (her passion) her reality now. I am always inspired by others who leap…she is a leaper and certainly inspiring!
I have a few mantras and quotes from others who inspire me that I try to remind myself of on days I can’t focus on my path or I question what I’m doing or how I’m going to do it. Caroline inspires me to leap without seeing the entire future and evaluating every outcome and reminds me that ‘doing and action’ can be scary, but oh so necessary and rewarding!
I hope you are inspired to leap….I hope you follow her leap despite fear…I hope I can inspire others. It’s a nice inspiring circle that I truly feel blessed to be circling around in!
What inspires you? What do you want to leap to? What scares you?
