Everybody needs inspiration.
This month's edition of Inspiration Nation is going to be an Inspiration Vacation.
That's right... the Inspiration Foundation Project.
June is full of so many possibilities as is summer 2012.
Let's make it inspirational & adventurous & lovely & everything you could ever wish for & more!
Summer twentytwelve WILL be an unforgettable one.
I am on the quest to answer one very simple question full of depth that doesn't have one right or wrong answer.
QUESTION: "What inspires you?"
I'm on a treasure hunt for answers to this goldmine question...
Every day this month I will do a "What Inspires [insert name here]". So we can all learn what inspires different people. Some of these people will be my friends, some will be family, some will be you lovelies, others will be well known celebrities, entertainers, writers, singers, and much more!
A quote that sparks a fire inside me, and is the basis for our Nation of Inspiration says:
"Maybe the reason you can't find any inspiration anymore is because it's your turn to be one."
You lovelies are full of inspiration and potential.
We can all aspire to inspire before we expire and paint the world so brightly with inspiration, goals, and love that it will never fade, it will be timeless, it will be a circle of inspiration that can never be broken.
You can find inspiration in anything: in the words of a song, in a quote, in movies, on the pages of a book, on a sunny or rainy day, at church, at school, laying out under the stars, in people [what they do, who they are, what they say], family, friends, people you love, love, anywhere, everywhere, anytime, endlessly.
You can be the inspiration.
This blog is what inspires me.
You lovelies inspire me.
Everything I post here on the Inspiration Nation is what I find inspiring & I want to share it will all of you lovelies. I want it to touch your hearts like it did mine. To give you hope when all seems hopeless. To save you when you feel like you're lost or worthless. To help you realize you are perfect just the way you are. To inspire you to see your potential and make goals. To make you smile. That is what inspires me. If I can brighten one person's day, if I can change one life, that is unbelievably humbling and inspiring to me.
Inspiration will never stop.
Don't let it no matter how much people try to bring you down, tear down your ideas, make fun of your dreams. Don't ever let anyone tell you who you are.
Lovelies: I want to know what inspires YOU
Send me pictures, stories, quotes, etc. about what is your inspiration & I may choose some to post on this month's blog! You can share by leaving a comment below or e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"People are gonna tell you who you are your whole life. You just gotta punch back and say 'No. This is who I am!' You want people to look at you differently? Make them. You want to change things? You're gonna have to go out there and change them yourself. Because there are no fairy godmothers in this world."
