You inspire others by authentically sharing yourself, no matter what your chosen “field of work”. When you share like only you can, in that way that is unique to you, it inspires others.
At times it will not be apparent that you are inspiring others, and at other times you will know as there will be some who reach out and let you know. Many times you will not know why you are moved to share something, yet, there is a reason if you are moved.
Authentically sharing of your gifts and treasures creates a ripple effect of goodness, kindness, and love whose effects reach farther than we could ever even imagine. I call it “sowing the seeds of love” … xoxoxo

from the fun book we read tonight …. “Those who march to a different drummer are in a magnificent band indeed!” ~”Patricia Polacco presents … The Graves Family” …
It’s when we start looking around and comparing that we begin thinking our band is too loud, too colorful, too quiet, not colorful enough, too impulsive, not impulsive enough, too kind, not kind enough, too plain, too wild … However the “music” comfortably flows forth is what makes it magnificent …. Let it flow …. xoxoxoxo

When people come into your life who you feel completely and utterly yourself with, spend time with them. It’s inspiring.
Those times when you’re spending time with those who you feel completely and utterly yourself with, talking about things that are meaningful to all of you, with those who get you.
Those times when two and a half hours feels like 30 minutes. Those times when you are saying goodbye all the way out the door and to their cars as they leave …
I got to have one of those afternoons and it blessed my heart and soul. Thank you Melinda Bourke Blackwell and Barbara Richmond Chastain. Our time together today was inspiring and we overflow with gratitude for your support of Thomas and his upcoming book. xoxoxo
