Who Inspires Me The Most? Why Am I Drawn To These Inspirtatons?

Today is day 20 od 30 questions for self discovery; the prompt for today was 'who inspires me the most/why am I drawn to these inspirations?"


My mum is inspiring, she was a solo mother who started university as a 'mature student', and went on to get a Ph.D.  Why do I find this inspiring? What's not inspiring about this? Overcoming the odds and achieving something so fucking huge is INCREDIBLY inspirational. 

I'm also inspired by Adriene Mishler (Yoga With Adriene on Youtube). Someone, who to me, radiates with the qualities of inner beauty I want to share with the world (I am sure Adriene is not all these things all the time, no one can be, but these are values that are important to me) : 

  • Kindness
  • Compassion
  • Self care
  • Humility
  • Love
  • Strength
  • Truth
  • Gratitude
  • Integrity
  • Forgiveness 

The people that inspire me are people with integrity, people who don't give into their circumstance, and people who light up the world with their truest selves. I'm also inspired by people who are/can be vulnerable, people who aren't afraid of being honest about how they feel and aren't afraid of showing the yuck bits of life. 

Why do these people inspire me? People who are vulnerable make me feel less alone., people who radiate inner beauty give me hope, and people who don't give up/give into circumstance let me know I can do ANYTHING, and that girls who grew up in a similar situation can do anything too.
