- The process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative: “flashes of inspiration”.
- The quality of having been so stimulated, esp. when evident in something: “a moment of inspiration in an otherwise dull display”.
Who or what inspires you? In October we were honored to participate in Meet, Plan, Go -Orlando, a local edition of a national career break event. The event was inspiring, from the other panelists to the enthusiasm and questions from the registrants, I walked out of the event inspired to continue to find ways to live my life to the fullest.
After the event a man approached me from the crowd. Rick is an entrepreneur in South Florida, who was hoping to take his own career break in the near future. His enthusiasm and passion for taking control of his life was catchy, and I found inspiration at his eagerness to push forward with his plan. One year ago today we landed our feet back in the U.S. having completed our trip around the world. This last year has been rough on both of us, as coming home always is and we celebrate this bittersweet milestone with both tears of joy and sadness. Tuesday, we stopped by Rick’s restaurant and saw this sign on the door:
Congratulations Rick. There’s no better way we could have celebrated our one year home than to see someone else start the journey to their dream. Rick, wherever you are, I hope you follow your dream and continue to inspire others with your enthusiasm and zeal for life. See you on the other end!
