What inspires you ?

Ok folks, get out your treacle meters… it’s gonna get pretty thick in here…. Ladies get out your hankies….. you too LiB but none of those annoying honking sounds ok?

So…………

What inspires you?

For me recently : the love shown by good friends on a recent trip to the UK.

Recently : the sight of mrs. G snuggled into my arm and sleeping comfortably (poor girl has been a bit ill recently )

And this morning : Driving to work across some low laying farm fields covered in the morning mist, cresting a hill and there is Mt.Blanc silhouetted perfectly, just catching the first rays of sun.

God, I love my life.

You'll figure out a way to sneak some bikini girl pics on the thread to make up for your sappiness, I know it Grynchie.

Re: What inspires you ?

Kindness others show (whether they are loved ones or strangers), and acceptance others give. I've been reflecting on this lately as I don't feel I am very accepting sometimes, and have been realizing what a gift it is to be accepted, as I am. It's huge.

I hope I can learn to pay it forward.

Well, grynchiepinchie, I wonder if people think of inspiration in different ways. You've sort of set the tone such that if anyone says anything other than the love of my friends and family they look like jerks!

So, I feel uplifted by the love of my family and friends; am surprised at it and humbled by it.

As for inspiration: I am inspired by those who excel in the face of adversity. I've been lucky to have mentors and friends who should have ended up homeless or dead or in an institution but instead became very wise, successful and generous people- and while generally belonging to the above mushy group also truly inspired me by example.

How's that?

Nope, I have none of those.

I agree with this. That is something which inspires me as well.

Aww, don't worry Grynch, us fluffy types appreciate it! ♥


Me, I am inspired by mornings like today - waking up to a golden morning of sun through mists.

IF I managed these attachments right, the first two are taken from my balcony (neither from today), just showing the changing but (almost) always fabulous view.

The third should be a view of the fall colors with the juxtaposition of Chillon and a highway in the picture. This time of year is my favorite, with the crisp air and all the colors. Thinking of that "ageless" quality of the changing of life at such a basic level combined with such obvious difference of the old castle together with the modern highway... ahhh, life!
