BRIE (aka my best friend)

This is a picture of one of my best friends (and basically older sister) and me. Her name is Aubrey Ann Young, but I call her Brie. We have been friends since 1994. She's one of my greatest sources of inspiration. She is incredible, beyond incredible, actually. And if no one else reads this blog, I know at least she does haha so that's a real friend. :) She has been with me during some of the best moments of my life and has gotten me through the worst moments. I wouldn't be where I am today without Brie. So this entry is dedicated to one of the people who inspires me most: Brie. 
    Seriously imagine the greatest friend ever and that about sums Brie up. I heart her. There are many more memories with her to come, and I'm sure you will here all about them on here as I write about the things we accomplish from my list on here. Whether we're talking about boys, writing, meeting Jesse McCartney, running through the ocean, planning skydiving trips, shopping, or doing other crazy random things, we always have fun and will be best friends forever despite distance and anything else. 
Our motto= Waiting+Wishing+Working=Worth It.

Wow. December is almost over. 2010 is nearly finished. Where does the time go?! Seriously. Seriously? Seriously! I haven't posted at all this month which is sad. I mean not that anyone reads this, but this is supposed to be inspirational and I'm going to stay optimistic and think positive that maybe someone reads this and it helps them in some way. If you do read this, I would love comments and suggestions. Because even I, the creator of this Inspiration Nation, need inspiration now and then (obviously since I haven't been very inspiring this month).
   So my goal with this was to try and be all inspired all the time and share that inspiration and happiness with you. But I'm learning that you can't be happy all the time. However, you can be inspired each moment. Inspiration keeps us going. Even during those tough times when it seems impossible to be happy. When you feel like no one gets what you are going through, it's nice to stumble across a quote or situation that you can relate to and explains in words what you are feeling but can't express yourself.
      I am going to make a goal to try and update this and add new inspiration everyday. A nation is a group of people who share things in common. Therefore, I want others to inspire me too. I can't be my own nation. So I hope that others will read and respond. And that way you don't have to go a day without feeling inspired. So you don't have to be hopeless and you don't lose faith. Cause lately I've been having those days (lots of them actually) where I feel like I'm drained of motivation, I think we all do, but so few of us talk about it. And it's like we're scared to admit to we're broken. But I believe we are broken to be made stronger...
