Inspiration might be unique for each of us, but many experiences are common to most. An inspiring story can carry inspiration to many. Have you had the experience of listening to someone who has overcome a challenge, is fighting a good fight, or who has touched the lives of others? Are you moved by their story? Do you gain a greater persepective on your own challenges because of their story? Sometimes we realize that our own path is easy in comparison. Sometimes we gain the strength to keep going when our own challenge is formidable. We are gifts to each other in this way. We are meant to share our stories, our dreams and our challenges. We are a gift to another when we risk being vulnerable, allowing another person to see our pain, our struggle and our success. In your willingness to share your own journey, you become the gift of love, acceptance and inspriation to another.
