Whether it’s the state of our world, personal anxieties, health issues, or relationship struggles, there is a lot of weight in the world to bring us down. As a challenge to myself, lately I have been seeking out stories and wisdom to lighten my mind and inspire my everyday life.
I’ve been finding the light everywhere. A nurse that lovingly held my hand and comforted me at the doctor’s office. A woman that thanked me for giving her “hope in a cookie.” A brave actress that chopped off her hair as a sign of solidarity. These people and stories are there if we start to look for them.
For this reason, I created the “Living Inspired” category here on my website. I want this space to be filled with your stories, your inspirations, your motivations. I want to know what gives you hope, puts you at peace, and brightens your everyday. No community has made me feel more welcomed or inspired than the community of friends I’ve found on my journey to wellness, and I want this to be a comfortable, warm place for us to share the light.
To start the conversation, I’ll leave you with a quote that’s been inspiring me lately:
“Fearlessness is not the absence of fear, but the bravery to do it anyway.”
Here’s to living well in spite of our challenges. Here’s to stepping up when overcome with fear. Here’s to doing it anyway.
