Inspirations in Everyday Life

A smile

This is one of the easiest things someone can do, yet it can make such an impact on someone's day. Best of all, they're contagious. :)

This reminds me about hope and to find joy in the simple things.

Flowers because they remind me of my Memaw's beautiful rose garden

The roses remind me that there are seasons of growth, seasons of dying, and seasons of pruning. Sometimes things take longer than we want them to. Sometimes change is difficult. In the end, there is always a beautiful rose.

My Mama's jokes because they remind me to laugh even if I don't feel like it

These are a few of the things that inspire me each day. It's nice to stop and take a look around you. In this fast paced world, people forget the simple pleasures in life. I recently saw a quote on Molly and Marshal's blog that I loved. It said, "Don't get so caught up in making a living that you forget to make a life." That's so true.

What kinds of things inspire you?
