poverty stole your golden shoes, it didn't steal your laughter..

So I'm sitting here listening to Jewels song "hands" and it got me thinking how inspired I am by her. Making it big even through all her struggles, writing songs living in her van. What an inspiration. It got me thinking that anyone whom I have ever been inspired by has been someone who has gone through the struggles and worked so hard to be where they are, and fully deserve to be there. I want to be an inspiration and to do that you don't take the easy way out...You work you butt off...just like all of us are doing. I dont care if your here to lose 100+ pounds or just 5, its still hard work and all of you are an inspiration to me. I have been thinking a lot lately, wanting to be lazy, "when will this get easier"...now when I say this im not only referring to my wieght loss goals, but also my life in general. Lose my job, car breaks down, closest person in the world to me passes on..yet I've managed through hard work to get through all of these things. I just have to take that approach when it comes to my spark, though I love it I need to be an inspiration to myself and I wont do that by loafin around. Like everything else I will kick ass and take names :)

    Jewel inspires me as well. I also love her voice.... and you are right on with your blog. We come here for inspiration, but find we have the ability to inspire. Once we have felt what that feels like, we want to keep inspiring.... and the person we most want to inspire is ourself! Let the inspiration keep coming from all angles. It keeps it fresh. It keeps it alive. Keep inspiring others because the feeling you get off that feeds the inspiration you nurture for yourself.

    You have succeeded where you might have failed ... keep it up!
