Inspirational People

I have, what I call, Inspirational People, in my life.  People that make me want to strive to be a better person.  I'm not saying I'm not great. hehehe.  I think though, that people can always better themselves in some way.  These people may inspire me in a big or small way.  They may inspire me in different types of ways. It doesn't matter.  All I know, is that they DO inspire me.

One person who inspires me is Sara of Punkin's Patch.  She is a person who inspires me to be a busy person.  This is one lady who doesn't let the grass grow under her feet. (Which her sheep may be disappointed in. lol)  She is very busy.  But because she is busy, she has accomplished a lot.  Her farm is beautiful!  Her photography is beautiful.  Her artwork is beautiful.  And she, herself, is beautiful.  The reason is because she works at it.  She's not one of those people that just let things "happen" to her.  She goes out there and "makes" things happen.  I don't know if I've ever met someone with so many irons in the fire.  And just being around her, makes me want to DO something.  She is very motivating!  Therefore,  I consider her one of my Inspirational People.

Another one of these people is Phelan.    She is completely different than any other person that I've ever met.  But, she's okay with being different.  It keeps things interesting. She makes me think outside the box.

One more of my Inspirational People, is my friend Catherine.  Catherine, if given the chance, would have sailed around the world with Christopher Columbus just to see if the world WAS flat.  She is one of those people that will try anything.  No matter how many people tell her something won't work, she will give it a try just to see for herself.  She's not afraid to fail.  That's what I call fearless. She inspires me to not to listen to what everyone else says, give it a try.

Now,these are not the only people that inspire me.  There are MANY more family and friends in my life that do and for many more different reasons.  I don't have a big enough blog to put them all on here. The main reason I wrote this post is so that maybe someone out there in Blog Land will look around at the people in their life and realize how these people inspire them.  Sometimes we just have to look around us for inspiration.

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, Inspired.

Well, I may inspire people to collect cats....but I'm not exactly sure if that's a good thing :)
Glad you have such motiviational friends / blogging buddies, it is a good thing to have somebody else give you a little kick in the pants when you're feeling less-than-motivated!

Boy do I have you fooled :-D.

One of the most inspirational things about you is your willingness to try new things. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, but that doesn't discourage you and you keep right on going. And you take us along for the ride :-D.

Many wonderful people in my life inspire me, too...not the least of which is right under my roof...my two boys and their wonderful dad. I've made a fantastic friend who is a very kindred soul and we have become like sisters almost immediately. Feeling blessed to have them all, and you, too...~Vonnie

Thank you for the inspirations. They are often all around us, but we fail to see.

You inspire me... when I go off on one of my rants, you bring me down to earth & tell me not to dwell on the negatives!

You also listen & even if you think I'm crazy you smile & nod...

Also, I like women who like 'Big boys toys' like archery slingshots...

Not sure how I feel about you out-shooting me... :)

I like running my ideas past you, because you are objective.

I like how you sign off on your post's, I'll do so now as well...

Inspired by the inspired.
