What Motivates and Inspires Me

Thursday, September 12, 2013

You know what motivates me? Inspires me? It's not the uber-fit person on a meme with a saying that reads something like, "Look what she can do! What's your excuse?" It's not a picture of a 70 y.o. woman with abs of steel and again, the same words, "Look what she can do! What's your excuse?" It's the 70 y.o. woman at the rec center I saw yesterday that needed someone beside her because her walk was stiff and unsure but sure enough she walked around that track several times, and I slowed my stroll so that I could stay behind her, smiling, and feeling my heart swell because "despite, she got in."

    It was REALLY inspiring for me to see. I'm lucky that the rec center I go to has a lt of wonderful older people who are, even if with a cane, are walking or doing an aerobic class. It's awesome!
