Inspiration...Two cents

Friday, June 06, 2014

Inspiration comes from a lot of places. For me personally, I am inspired by cheesy speeches, results, and competition. These things drove me to love nearly 150 pounds last time I lost weight. Those things made me a better person and more driven as a whole.

This time around though, I have learned a new trick. I find myself being motivated by my friends. Dear friends who know what I am going through in my personal life and are willing to take the time out of their busy days to look at me with my story and put their two cents in. Its not always positive. Sometimes it is destructive. But I use all of it. It is all fuel for my tank. I need and love it. Spark is obviously great for the positive. But friends, family, and sometimes perfect strangers also fuel the fire, making a spark in my life.

What inspires you?

    I like this a lot. I agree that you make use of all forms of feedback. Negative or positive, both can give you perspective. And I'm glad that those closest to you aren't shying away from what you've been through and can have those honest conversations. That can be very helpful in the healing process.
