    Love. Love for my animals, my people, and my things. I would not get up every day if I did not have love, for something, somewhere.

    My biggest inspiration in life are the children that I work with everyday. Some of them come to school each day with such god awful crap on their little shoulders, but they are still joyful and smiling. If they can be that way, I can find happiness in everyday as well!

      That is so true, we (as adults) really could learn so much from the way children as resilient and generally happy! They are inspirational!

    My biggest inspiration is the people around me. Because, it's just certain things they say or do that gives me the inspiration I need. Especially when it comes to my writing. Sometimes Even other talents that come from the people around gives me Inspiration. Thanks for asking.

      That’s a great way to interpret the saying "Write what you know" the people around you are a great known source for inspiration!

    My faith in Almighty God. With Him, all things are possible. Without Him, life is uncertain, meaningless, & ultimately hopeless. Living my life in a way that pleases God is what motivates me to do what is right, and to always give my best effort. Besides God, my family is of utmost importance to me, and being a father and a husband, I realize my importance as a provider and teacher for them.

      I definitely have to agree with you here.  God gets me up in the morning so I can see my beautiful family and puts me to sleep at night so i have the rest required to take care of that family.  Good answer!

      My family, and my children also.Without God, none of those people would be possible. He places those people in our lives sometimes to challenge, and sometimes to inspire us. But isn't it really amazing how he knew which people would do that for us?

    Studying Theosophy and trying to apply it in my life is my biggest inspiration. Theo = Divine and Sophia = Wisdom. Attempting to live life from the point of view of the Divine Wisdom is inspiring. It reminds me that there is more to this existence than just little old me.

      It is true that we need to realize that sometimes, that there is more out there than in just our own reality!

    The biggest inspiration in my life is every challenge that comes my way. Challenges, much more than anything else, keeps me up no matter how hard they can get sometimes. I always believe that while challenges were meant to sometimes distract us, they can also give us hope and inspire us to be better. They spice up our lives, after all.

    I don't know if you'll consider this an inspiration, obsession, or just the ramblings of an old man, but in any case, I thought I would share.
    There is an old French proverb that states "old loves never die, they just rest in a quiet corner of your mind."  I think there's a lot of people that will attest to the truth of that thought.

    When I was in my second year of graduate school at LSU, I lived with a young, pretty, little Cajun girl for seven months and she was the true love of my life.  I have been haunted by the memories of her and that relationship all of my life.  I had often thought that this obsession actually was a symptom of a mental health disease.
    But on one of my last trips to Europe, I came across a quote by a French author that offered me some solace by suggesting a definition of a true love that gave some clarity to my situation. Let me share the quote. (please excuse my  translation from the French, it may not be exact, but it is close)

    "Your first love isn’t the first person you kiss, or the first person you date, or even the first person you made love to.  Your first love is the person you will always compare all other loves to.  It is that  person that you will never truly get over even after you have convinced yourself a thousand times that you’ve moved on."
                                                                           -  Marc LaGrange

    I am 75 years old now, and over the years, I have had many relationships with some very exceptional women, (in fact, I married four of them).  Each wife has been beautiful, educated with wonderful personalities.  I think in the back of my mind though,  I was always hoping to re-create a relationship with the same intensity that I had had in Baton Rouge many years ago.  I now equate my quest to trying to unring a bell, it's unachievable. You should feel very fortunate and truly blessed if you ever had the opportunity to experience a true love, even once in your lifetime.

    I can relate to that quote because I know I have convinced myself 1000  times or more that she is gone out of my life, but as you can now see, the memories still bleed through.

    My parents work ethic! My father took a risk when first starting a business, failed, persevered and is now the successful owner of a construction company. He is 56 and still working six, sometimes seven days a week. My mom is a special ed teacher in early intervention. Now only working part-time on severe cases her love of the job won't allow her to retire! They never stop working, doing for others, and balancing family life. They inspire me everyday.
