In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”
Although I try to refrain from posting personal pictures, when I read this week’s Photo Challenge, I immediately knew what I would be writing about: my family.
Each and every one of them introduces unique perspectives into my life, and contributes a variety of attributes I am proud to carry with me today.
My mom and grandmother have supported and consoled me, even when they may have needed support more than I did. They inspire me to be strong in the face of trials, humble in my tribulations, and tenacious to the point of stubborn.
My dad is my biggest supporter: he has held and inspired me since before I could even walk. He constantly encourages me to take control of my life, embrace every opportunity with excitement and joy, and most importantly, that crying doesn’t solve our problems (even though he lets me cry on his shoulders!)
And my brother, although incredibly supportive as well, reminds me not to take life too seriously.
With a family like this, inspiration is a given; mostly because they don’t let me settle for anything less than the best, and I refuse to as well.
So, now it’s your turn! What keeps you inspired? What reminds you to chase your dreams, shoot for the stars, and various other cliches? Let me know!
