Inspiration

Everyone could use a bit of inspiration, motivation, and aspiration, couldn't that?  I felt like I could certainly use some today.

Someone sent me this video the other day- it's a scene from the comedy film The Great Dictator by Charlie Chaplin.  It's very inspiring, and I love it!  It's a little ironic that the greatest speech ever was given by a man known for not talking, isn't it?  Click here to read the speech instead of listening to it (but try to watch it, it's a great video!).

I've also been finding a number of wonderful quotes over on Pinterest, aka, the most addicting site ever.

Because if Anne Frank can write that, who can't believe in her message?

This one really got to me, because we all use the excuse that we're just too busy all the time- I know I say that constantly:
I guess the moral of that is that we can all change our priorities and make time for what is really important to us.  Like this analogy made by a philosophy professor who taught his students that there is always room for more in your life, and even when your life is full, there's always room for a glass of wine with a friend. 

What have you found inspirational lately?
