Life’s Inspirations

Some time ago I conducted a project during which I asked visitors to my site to tell me what inspires them—things they consider “natural highs.” As a result of this effort, I’ve collected more than two thousand statements, which I am happy to present here.

So as not to overwhelm you, I’ve configured this page to display several such statements at random. You can see a new set by reloading the page.

  • A hug.
  • Playing miniature golf.
  • Getting your first kiss.
  • Mozart’s Requiem.
  • Skydiving at night!
  • Discovering a cozy cafe downtown that you’ve never been to.
  • Seeing the rugby football side I coach do something right.
  • Living in the country with Nature and Fresh Air.
  • Swimming in my clothes.
  • A weekend getaway all alone.
  • Sharing homemade soup with my daughter every Friday when she gets home from work.
  • Making a surprise visit home.
  • Watching my cat drink out of the running faucet.
  • Looking at your test and realizing the professor made a mistake — I got a C, not a D+!!!
  • Having someone putting a warm blanket around you when you doze off sitting outdoors.
