In my past, I have inspired people to sigh in exasperation.
I have motivated people to drum their fingers and look around the room in an awkward pause.
I have even prompted people to fall asleep mid-conversation.
So, as honored as I was by Beth’s claim, I feel need to point out what a truly inspirational blogger looks like*…
Shana @ Fumbling Towards Normalcy inspires me to embrace my true, annoyed self.
Rebekah @ Cupcake Caramel inspires me to live la vie en francais.
Jayme @ Random Blogette inspires me to try new things and to love me for who I am.
JM @ Making Stuff is Fun inspires to make neat stuff.
Hutch @ Be Awesome Instead inspires me to, duh, be totally awesome.
Amy Lynne @ PBJ Dreamer inspires me to be grateful for the little things even when life is kicking me in the teeth.
Aesthetic Alterations inspires me to be stylish.
And last, but certainly not least:
Ally @ 400 Wake-ups inspires me to be strong.
*This list does not include Adrienne or Bliss – though I do find them both wonderful and they each inspire me to smile – because Beth mentioned them both already. And it also doesn’t include Beth herself whose honesty and faith inspires me every day.
Thanks Beth, for including me in your list. And to those bloggers that I mentioned above, feel free to pass this on to others that inspire you…or not.
Just know that you all inspire me to be better in some way.
