Monday's Muse - Who inspires me?

Over at Maternal Spark she asked us creative moms to write about who inspires us. Wow, this is gonna be a little difficult for me today 'cause I am feeling a little down BUT I am sure as I write the sparks (and muse!) will begin to flow.

I am actually inspired by many people. First, my four children who are often amazing and beautiful when they're not being naughty. Without knowing it they remind me of why I shouldn't give up. Secondly, one of my best friends. There are a few close friends I have in my life, but there is one who is always there IMing me, texting me and talking to me to encourage me. Sometimes he just sits "nearby" (on the phone or IM since he's a 12-hour drive away) or talks me through a project or writing until inspiration hits. Lastly, I am inspired by individuals I don't personally know. Like Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry and Robin McGraw.

It is my hope that I can reach pure happiness like that of a child, that I can have pure optimism like my BFF Frankie gives me or that I can have pure financial and personal success like the celebrities I mentioned above. Now that, my friends, is inspiration.

  1. Hey! :o) I wanted to drop by and tell you that I'm having a new giveaway at my blog.


  2. Hey is that the best friend that who can't play minuture golf? He's such a loser. But if he inspires you then I guess he can't be all bad. You should never give up!!! Take care I look forward to reading your blog!!!

  3. Hi Petula,

    Just wanted to say that I've started reading your blog. I'm wondering if you have heard about the book, "What Men Don't Tell Women About Business". I heard the guy (Chris Flett) on the Today Show and thought you probably have already heard of him. I'm wondering what your thoughts were. He seems to be really taking on the 'Old Boys Club". I just emailed him, but haven't heard back.

    Anyway, keep up the great writing.



  4. I think it's so helpful to list out your inspiration like you did. Aren't you thankful for all of them? :)
