Things that Inspire Me
I’m alexthegirl. this is what inspires me.
BreadPutting existing things together to create something new like the firstperson to see wheat in a field, think to add water & heat and baked thefirst loaf of bread.
S m a r t, b o l d w o m e n * w i t h r o m a n t i cnotions from Olden Times*especially redheaded orphans.
C r e at i v i t y (AKA Random Acts of Interneting)People who create & share things online just for fun. See also:Bert & Ernie Gangster Rap & Honey Badger.
CheekinessIn an age when sarcasm or cheap jokes rule, cheekiness & playfulness is awelcome alternative.
StorytellersWhether through video, photo or text – tell a great story. You have one.
SimplicitySo much noise, buzz words & technology exist that simplicity is a muchneeded break whether its with a bike ride, white space or a quiet morning.
TravelMy mum visited me in Pennsylvania, pulled out a map & said, “I’ve neverbeen here.” Man, did she want to go. Travel can be a lot of fun.
BraveryIt takes a lot of guts to be in this world from being brave enough to saywhat you want, to dream, or to do.
DoingThe non-profit, Direct Relief International is an amazing example ofpeople doing amazing things. Don’t just think ideas, do them.
CommunityCommunity is an over-used buzzword now but it’s still something Ibelieve in whether it’s online or off. Connection makes things happen.
Love & VulnerabilityI used to think being these things were a weakness. But thanks toinspirational friends, I’ve been learning otherwise.
HopeThere is always tomorrow. There is always possibility. There is alwayssomething to be glad about (and it all circles back to smart, bold womenwith romantic notions from olden times, especially orphans).
