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.

  • Seeing a shooting star.
  • Having a Sunday all to yourself!
  • Looking at the things God has done.
  • Not giving a damn what anyone else thinks, and living life the way YOU want to, not to someone else’s messed up rules.
  • Having a copper behind you thinking he’s going to pull you over when he passes you and pulls the guy in front of you over.
  • Seeing your child born and realizing, my God, she looks like me.
  • Realizing that a few friends will be there forever, no matter how far apart we are.
  • Being by yourself for a week just thinking.
  • Pink lemonade in the summertime.
  • That first, reunited kiss at the airport-six months in the making!
  • Giving driving lessons to the woman you adore.
  • Drinking a home-made cup of espresso and watching your dogs play outside!
  • Having a sort-of friend call you and tell you that she just won two free Bush tickets and she wants you, YOU to go with her.
  • Taking a long train ride on a beautiful day in the countryside.
  • Washing your hair in the rain!
