What moves you?

For me, it is authenticity.  When I witness courage in the face of adversity, kindness or generosity without reservation, unconditional love, and truth revealed, I am inspired.  I am privileged to have people in my life who demonstrate all the aforementioned qualities on a regular basis.  When I get inspired, I in turn want to share it with others.  So that’s why I’ve written this blog post.  I hope that you will enjoy some of the profound truths I’ve recently read as well as experienced.

A friend recommended the book “The Reflective Counselor” to me.  It is a daily meditation for lawyers.  Often, a quote or line of wisdom from that book sets the tone for my day or inspires me to action or reflection in my own life. 

The readings over the last few days provided these gems: 

“Circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him.” James Allen

We don’t think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.    

Awareness, acceptance, and action, in that order, can set us on a path to lasting transformation.

“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no one could have dreamed would come his way.” Goethe  

Don’t those words inspire you to do something great?  Or at least DO Something?  I’d love to hear what inspires you and what moves you to action.  I think in these times the more we can help one another with positive input, the better we will be individually and collectively.  So bring on your inspiration!
