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.

  • Getting invited to a dance.
  • Winning a game fairly.
  • Playing pocket pool.
  • Spending the day with my daughter and my one and only main squeeze!
  • Warm toll house cookies(w/walnuts) and a tall, cold, glass of milk.
  • Sitting on a porch swing on a cold, clear winter night with nothing but your pj’s, a blanket and a mug of creamy, hot cocoa.
  • Saying the name of the one you love.
  • Finding a Snapple cap with a picture on the back.
  • Waking up in the morning still lying in my darlings arms.
  • The gift of being the first one down the mountain after a fresh snowfall; quiet all around you, sparkly gemstones in the snow.
  • Piloting an airplane…on a clear night!
  • Your boss says, “We’re all going home at noon!”.
  • Passing notes in class.
  • Being told that you have done an outstanding job raising your children.
  • Being “pre-engaged”.
