Time Goes By In The Blink of an Eye

Dearest Lovelies (aka my readers),
I cannot believe it's been a week since I last posted. Not good! I express my apologies, but I will never just completely stop or leave the Inspiration Nation. I'm just human with a busy life like the rest of you. As much as I'd love to sit and just inspire people all day long every day, it's impossible at the moment with school and work and family and all-the-other-things-that-pop-up-and-surprise-you-in-your-week-that-demand-your-time. I appreciate your patience and support. I love you all like friends. I hope you had a wonderful week. Even when life is hard and not the best, it's still pretty amazing. Here is an incredible quote I just read that I love.

"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. it is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. what we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. if we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. if we remember those times and places — and there are so many — where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. and if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. the future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."
