Inspire Me

Inspire Me.  Who doesn't like to be inspired?!  Many of us naturally gravitate to people, places and things that make us smile in the depths of our soul =)

Professionals pay thousands of dollars  to attend seminars and conferences that provide encouraging words and accountability.  Others simply take a look around their circle of influence and size up anecdotal hints for a happier, more successful life.  What's your secret? 

I've been blessed with wonderful friends and wise mentors who have left an indeliable mark on my psyche.  Here are a few of my favorite quotes from a few of my favorite peeps who light a flame in my soul.  Perhaps you could add to my repertoire of happiness ;-)  


1.  Those that are the hardest to love, need love the most. - Mom (1971)

2.  What would Jesus do? - Jean Turkish (1974)

3.  You're a champion. - Dad (1979)

4.  Major on the majors, and minor on the minors. - Dave Ludwig (1986)

5.  You can do it kid! - Don Rist (2000)

6.  Show up like a grown-up. - Dr. Robin Smith (2006)

7.  When people reveal themselves to you, believe them the first time. - Maya Angelou (2011)

Call Your Mother… Call the Cops!
