If you are a parent, spouse or simply a nice person, you probably tell the people you love that they are amazing and can do anything they set their mind to.
How often do you hear it?
I’m one of the lucky one’s that hear it a lot from my family and friends. Honestly, knowing they believe in me means so much.
My friend Jennifer is truly a Renaissance woman, she makes everything look and sound easy. She and her husband are always building or creating something new, whether it be decor for the inside or a garden in the backyard, they can do it all. When the work in the basement stalled, she really inspired me to do it myself and not wait around for someone to do it for me. After working tirelessly on my basement for months, I carved out some time to have lunch with my girl and show her the progress on my new-found addiction. Thankfully she approved of the changes and again encouraged me to keep on going. A few days later I received a text from her, with a picture of her powder room and she wrote “look what my clever friend inspired me to do!”
I was so thrilled, I could not believe I actually inspired her for once, it was such a compliment. Mind you, she probably whipped that little powder room into shape in one afternoon, one arm tied behind her back and a patch on her eye, so for her to say I inspired her made me beam with pride.
If you have been inspired to try something new or just go ahead and finish a project you started but didn’t complete, let me know so I can feature you here and give you some additional encouragement!
