Who Inspires You?

Who inspires you?

Who encourages you to have an open heart, take risks, speak your truth, and keep going...

Inspiration is one of the best qualities in ourselves and others, no?  We need it.  Especially when  working in tough situations and with people who are suffering.

It's HARD to stay positive and enthusiastic and engaged in life.  That is why it is so important to seek out others who make us smile, relax, and REMEMBER that even though life is full of struggle it is also so good!  It's also why it's important to practice inspiring others!

Here are a few of the women who inspire me.  Some I know IRL (in real life).  Some I only FEEL I know because their writing and work has touched my heart.

Who inspires you to get up every day and do the life-giving work that you do?  I look forward to your comments.

Warmest regards,

  • Jackie Coyle, Executive Director of Shepherd's Table - a Silver Spring institution - leads the team to feed 100+ homeless people every night of the year - rain or shine.  Her philanthropic spirit, i.e. her love of humankind comes through every time I see or hear her speak.
  • Sarah Miles, author of Jesus Freak: Feeding, Healing, Raising the Dead and Founder of the Food Pantry at St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco, California, is also a feeder.  Under her leadership, the Food Pantry provides fresh, wholesome and FREE food to over 1,000 people every week.  I love her irony and her practical wisdom.
  • Pemo Chodron, author of When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times and many more books and CD's is a Buddhist nun and Director of Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia.  I appreciate her wisdom and teaching on how to transform our suffering into "good medicine" by becoming more compassionate toward ourselves and others.
  • Finally, I'm inspired by Brene Brown, author of The Gifts of Imperfection and researcher and writer on the power of vulnerability.  Her talks on how to live with a WHOLE HEART have touched millions people and remind us that the only way to connect deeply with others is to share all of who we are.  I appreciate her vulnerability!
