How can you inspire someone today? How can you make a difference in someone's life? Sometime it's something as simple as listening, or sharing a smile. Other times it may be the way you live your life, or how you treat others.
What inspires you? How in your life has made a difference? Have you told them?
A few years ago, my family and I were in a pretty bad financial situation. At the time, my husband and I could barely afford to feed our children. Somehow, a friend of mine found out. One night she gave me a call and said she would be in my area, and could she stop by. When she showed up, she walked in with bags of groceries that had been donated by others. She had reached out and asked for donations, without letting any of our mutual friends know who it was for.
I will never forget that feeling of gratefulness and profound inspiration. Since then, I have done my best to do the same for others. Not for the recognition, but because I know how it feels and how much that simple act was appreciated.
I would love to hear from everyone on what or who has inspired them or made a difference in their lives. I invite everyone to comment below with their stories.
