Days 8 & 9(fail) of 30 days of gratitude in pics

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Day 8: Favorite color:

The ocean, when I was in Turks & Caicos. This isn't actually my favorite color because I don't have one, but I did LOVE the color of the water, it was just gorgeous. And if I had to pick, I've always loved blue, almost any hue. I like most colors, except I'm not a big fan of yellow, at least not for clothing and decorating. And someday, when I eventually get to plan my wedding, I already have my color scheme picked out, it will be blue/purple, much like these hydrangeas:

Day 9: Inspiring person
I am at a complete loss with this one. Total fail. There are plenty of famous inspirational people in this world, but they aren't necessarily inspiring to ME. And, I don't have any pictures of people that are personally inspiring to me. Let me explain. There are plenty of people in my life that are inspiring in their own way. Both of my parents. My grandmother when she was alive. My bf who has helped make me a better person. My sister. People here on Spark! And if I may, myself. I am inspiring to me. I have overcome a lot to get to where I am. At the end of the day, if I am to achieve something, I need to inspire myself to do it. There can sometimes be a fine line between being inspired by others and wanting to follow their path and do what they do rather than finding your OWN way. Anyways, I'm just philosophizing at this point.

Who inspires you?

    I don't have a favorite color, I guess it depends on the mood!
As for inspiring people, I try to find inspiration in everything so it may be a smile or a good word!

    My mum is a great inspiration to me. She raised me wonderfully despite some very difficult circumstances. Even though, I didn't realise it at the time, I now understand that she must have sacrificed a lot to make sure I wouldn't miss out on anything - from my years of dancing to a University education.

    Hmmm those flowers would look amazing in a wedding on a beach with that color water, just sayin'! haha. My mom has blue and purple hydrangeas that grow in our yard and people come pay her to cut them!

Asking who inspires you is a tough question. Yikes! I get inspired when I see people doing good in the world. Could be anyone really? That would be a tough one to get a picture of!

    My co-worker just got back from her honeymoon to the Turks and Caicos and is now a convert to that turquoise water and white sand. :)

It's great you're an inspiration to yourself! In thinking about it just now, I can't think of someone who's a real inspiration to me, either. Hmmmm

Keep on keepin on, SparkBuddy!

    That water is incredible-looking! Turquoise is probably my favorite color, but you're right, why should we just have one favorite?!? My three-year-old has several favorites of everything (color, movie, park), and I think you have both got the right idea! Enjoy it all!
I LOVE that you are an inspiration to yourself! Your insights on this topic moved me and touched on truths I guess I needed to hear. Thank you so much for sharing! You rock!!!
