What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me…

Barbara – Living With Diminished Urgency

Barbara - Living With Diminished Urgency

I choose to inhabit my days,
To allow my living to open me,
To make me less afraid,
More accessible,
To loosen my heart until it becomes
A wing, a torch, a promise.

Dawna Markova

June – Inspired My Simple

Is there something in your life that was once
Exciting, interesting or enjoyable,
That has now become ordinary?
Common? Dull?

What if you woke up tomorrow morning and
That something was no longer in your life?

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
