The Power of Inspiring Someone Else

But sometimes we don’t even know we’re doing it. I remember years ago, being in a bad mental space and thinking “No one would even care if I weren’t here.”

My dad set me straight on that one! And so did other people. The reality is that you are likely touching other hearts without even realizing it. So let’s make that affect on others full of good energy, rather than bad.

Recently author and blogger Amy Caudill humbled me with her review of my book Versions of the Self on Goodreads. That review had me beaming, but you know what meant even more to me? That she said I inspired her to write a poem – and it was the first one in many years that she had penned.

Wow. Now that’s an honor.

So today I’m thinking about how we ought to tell people more when they inspire us so that they know the positive influence they are having on us. It’s a positive cycle and what better time to start than the weekend? Speaking of which, I hope yours is wonderful ♥
