Inspiration is often one of those feelings in life that is hard to find, but it also seems equally hard to get rid of for a while, too, which I find fascinating. Pondering about inspiration after an incident last night, I decided to write a short blog post about the two most inspiring things to us.
1. People who overcome diversity and people who accomplish amazing things. There is no single more amazing and inspiring feat that a human can do rather than overcome adversity. The first person to always cross my mind is Lance Armstrong. I know that he is currently getting a bit of media attention at the current moment, but if someone just read his book, like I have, then maybe they would understand him. His story, among thousands of others, inspire me daily. Lance is also a person who has accomplished amazing things while overcoming his hardships, which includes his 7 Tour d’France titles, not to mention others. Because of this, in the human realm there is nothing more inspiring than hearing a story of triumph, victory, love, and hard work.
2. Nature. “Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.”—Lao Tzu. Nature is quite literally a miracle that happens daily. Nature is indescribable yet perfectly perceivable, even to those who cannot see or smell or hear. Nature is also essential in our lives, and we often push her away and destroy her. Nature is inspiring for her beauty, her calmness, her tranquility, her stillness, her hope, and her love of life.
