Encouragement for Those Who Once Inspired You
We all have those who have left a lasting impression on us. As we look back on the times we needed a little extra push or an encouraging word, we see the faces of those who have inspired us to keep moving forward. In a world where so many seem to tear each other down, it is refreshing to focus on the times we have been uplifted. When there seems to be so much injustice around us, we are reminded to be the good we wish to see in the world.
Words are such a powerful tool. They can be used to heal and comfort, just like they can be used to destroy and cause pain. More often than not, it seems words are spoken without proper respect of just how powerful they can be... However, there are times when at just the right moment someone leaves us with words of inspiration and encouragement. We are thankful for these! We would like to create more of these!
We would also like to encourage our readers to voice their thankfulness for a time someone was an inspiration. Maybe this was from someone who is a constant in your life and all it takes is a written note to return the encouragement. Or perhaps, you were uplifted by a stranger or someone who is no longer here...We believe in these instances, the best form of repayment would be to pay this encouragement forward. Be the inspiration you needed at a time in your life to someone else.
Let's all strive to be for someone else what someone was for us...an inspiration, a glimpse of hope, and sometimes a kick to keep going, to push a little longer. Because regardless of where we live, what we do for a living, we all have something of value to offer. We all can offer kindness, a smile, a word of encouragement. Let's all make the decision that at least for today, we will be the good we wish to see in the world
