Who Inspires You?
Monday, March 15, 2010
In "TainerJame's" Blog he asked who our inspiration is and who we inspire. These were my thoughts:
My biggest inspiration came from my Nana. She has been dead for over 20 years, but her guidance still leads me on. Ironically I have been thinking about her a lot lately. I'm not sure if I'm looking to her for strength or if i just see her body in mine. My Nana was a very heavy lady. She loved to bake and I loved to eat her goodies. When I look in the mirror I definitely see my Nana's arms and heaviness(I loved her flabby arms when I was growing up). I carry my weight everywhere and so did she. I would be honored to be as wonderful of a person as she was, but I do not want to remain the same shape.
Since joining SP I have been getting to know some of the wonderful people here that are a different type of inspiration for me. I thank all of you who reach out to us "newbies" and make us feel welcome.
As for who I inspire, I hope other members of SP when I've made some real progress. I also am hopeful that I inspire my children to be good people.
