We can inspire people in so many situations, often when we’re not intending to inspire, that’s when we can inspire the most.
I’m very lucky in that I’m easily inspired. People inspire me every day.
But do you realise how easy it is to inspire others? It only takes a little effort or a little time and you can have a profound affect on someone’s day / month / year / life.
It doesn’t take a lot, just to want to make a difference to someone else. For no other reason than ‘you can’.
In the last couple of months a group of friends and I have been blessed with the opportunity to inspire other people…some friends, some strangers… every time it touches my heart.
If you want an opportunity to act right from the heart, to connect back to what’s important to you, to remember who you are at your core, to just ‘be’ who you are…find an opportunity to inspire someone else.
The funny thing is that we sort of ‘fell’ into doing these things. There was no big master plan to ‘inspire the world’…the opportunities kept coming up and we kept taking them.
It began when a friend of ours was having a bit of a tough time. She had lost someone close to her and was finding it a hard journey.
A lot of her friends weren’t close to her geographically and wanted to offer some support and love.
So we each recorded a short video for her and one of us brought them all together to create a message that genuinely touched her heart:
When a few weeks later another friend posted online that someone very close to him and his family seemed to be losing their battle with cancer they wanted some advice on how to inspire her and lift her spirits in her final days.
Although many of us didn’t know Jan or her family directly, we all came together to show love and support for her with another video compilation that touched her heart and the hearts of the people who were closest to her:
Jan died a short while later, but knowing that we had brought a smile to her and her loved ones in such a difficult time meant so much.
The last video we did was for a very dear friend whose son tragically decided to move on from this life only a few short weeks ago.
He had so many friends around the world who wanted to reach out in support of him to show how much they cared.
Between us we put together this message for him to show that we were all there with him to help him through this difficult time:
In addition to this we’ve taken opportunities to be part of global flashmobs for peace, to give out free hugs and smiles around London, and another video project is in the making for a special little boy who is inspiring others with his journey.

But inspiration doesn’t have to be big…it doesn’t have to change the world. It can be as simple as making another person smile…just by giving them one of your own.
Inspiration is easy…and it changes people. When you’ve inspired someone once, it lights a fire inside you to want to do it again. When you’ve seen that you can affect someone else’s life for the better, you can’t help but want to do it again and again and again.
Inspiration is one of the key aspects of femininity…inspiring others just by being ‘you’ and doing something from the heart is one of the most powerful things that a feminine woman can do.
So the question is – who do you want to inspire today?
