Do you have friends that ever inspire you to grow as a person, whether creatively, or as a moral character, or in some other dimension?
I have several such friends (I like to keep inspiring people around me) – and two of them recently came to visit.
They make me want to go out and do, and to try, to experiment, and to unfold more and more of myself where I didn’t even realize I was keeping in bud. And they do it simply by being just who they are.
There’s kind of a trend I’ve noticed, where people jokingly confess how inadequate they feel when they see someone else doing something awesome. When I see someone doing something awesome, it just make me want to go out and do something awesome too.
Do you have people in your life who make you want to do awesome things? They’re good people to share tea and scones with. If you have them, keep them around.
