Inspiration, Inspire, Inspired, Inspiring

I love inspiration, being inspired, inspiring others and being an inspiration.

The word inspiration gets banded about quite a bit, so here is the definition:

  • Fill someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.
  • Create a feeling, especially a positive one in a person.
  • (Inspire someone with) animate someone with a feeling.
  • Give rise to.
  • Breathe in (air); inhale.

And I love the succinct definition my coach Karen gave me:

“Inspire is to breathe divine life into; to motivate action or a positive feeling in another person. Filling someone with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.”

That is what I live for; to inspire myself first (not always the case and I still often forget) and then others.
