"The best quotes don't speak to one particular truth, but rather to universal truths that resonate -- across time, culture, gender, generation, and situation -- in our own hearts and minds. They guide, motivate, validate, challenge, and comfort us in our own lives. They reiterate what we've figured out and remind us how much there is yet to learn. Pithily and succinctly, they lift us momentarily out of the confused and conflicted human muddle. Most of all, they tell us we're not alone. Their existence is proof that others have questioned, grappled with, and come to know the same truths we question and grapple with, too. "

 ~ Sheryl Strayed

Inspiration can be found in so many places, but I find myself often looking to other peoples' words and writings. Sheryl Strayed's Brave Enough is a collection of quotes from her career as a writer... it's like a little goldmine of encouragements and insights. Some make you laugh, some make you think, some make you pause and just be. It's easy to pick up and peruse again and again. 

But, the quote above actually comes from the introduction to her collection. It spoke to me because it's about what I hear over and over again from friends and students who read and appreciate my weekly musings, quotes, and inspirations within this e-newsletter. They'll say things like "You knew exactly what I needed to hear this week." or even, "Are you in my head!?"

Nope. I'm not in your head or stalking you for something to write about each week. It's just that WE ARE ALL ONE. We all have similar challenges. We all have similar triumphs. It's in the shared experiences, when we can look past our boundaries, opinions, and preconceived notions about what separates us from each other, that our humanness lies. It's out of those "same truths" of humanness, our greatest lessons can be learned.

Where are you finding inspiration!?
