Over the last several days, people have been very complementary on my blog, Unmistakably Herb, and the posts that I write. That is very thoughtful of you and I appreciate that wholeheartedly. I am honored.
Going deeper, these individuals think of me as inspirational, meaningful and have insights in the way that I approach dealing with not only my stroke and aphasia, but my outlook overall. Kind words, once again, but, I think of it and different aspects.
As a matter of fact, I looked up the word “inspirational” one day. What I found out from Merriam-Webster is:
- something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create
- a person, place, experience, etc., that makes someone want to do or create something
- a good idea
Terrific, I said, but I like to ask you the same question; are you inspirational? Do you have the guts, the determination and wherewithal to achieve your goals and dreams? Like a mirror, I am asking you the same questions that I deal with every single day.
Will you, (yes, I am talking to you,) have the charisma and fortitude to go forward, even if you have some chinks in the armor, so to speak. To be inspired, in my opinion, is to always go further, to always go farther and to bring “fire” each and every day.
Inspirational is everyone that has a desire to go beyond the mundane to achieve greater planes if you are strong and resilient. Ready for the challenge?
