Let's start with the obvious. And the most recent.
The Olympics. And more importantly, as of yesterday, the U.S. gymnastics team + Michael Phelps. Mr. Phelps now has the most Olympic medals of any athlete. Ever. That's amazing. And then there was the U.S. gymnastics team who won gold yesterday. Awesome awesome awesome. My roommate and I were sitting in our living room just after they had won and I heard her say, "This makes me want to cry!" To which I of course responded, "I am crying!" To which she responded, "I know, I am, too!". It was an emotional night in our apartment.
Music. How many times have you been having an awful day and then you hear your favorite song and it makes you feel better instantly?
Blogs. I mean really, let's be serious. That's the reason I became so intrigued by the blogging world in the first place. Everything is so darn inspiring!
Entrepreneurs. I have no idea if entrepreneurship will fit in to my future. But either way, I can't help but be inspired by the amazing businesses that are built from the smallest inkling of an idea in to something tangible and wonderful. Want to see some truly awesome entrepreneurs? Check out The Everygirl (as if you haven't already!).
Quotes. I have far too many favorite quotes to name them all right here. But here are a few of my current favorites.
Weddings. Yes, I am a huge sap. My friends and family know this, so you might as well know it, too. Chick flicks? Awesome. Love Stories? Awesome. Weddings? Only the best, most inspring, romantic things ever.
Underdogs. Anyone who didn't come from wealth and fame and who had to make it all on their own. They weren't supposed to make it, but they did. And I applaud them for that. Steve Prefontaine. Oprah. J.K. Rowling. And SO many more that I can't think of right now.
