Are YOU An Inspiration To Others?

Are You An Inspiration To Others?

I always have so many things in my head that I'd like to write about.   I see these posts when browsing on websites about blogging and people will say, "I WANT to be a blogger...but I can't think of anything to write about"  My problem is...I want to be a blogger and I have so many things I'd like to blog about I could literally almost blog...all day long...every day....beCAUSE I feel this blog is making a difference in at least a few lives and even one...would be major to me....

We've all heard the story about the 2 people walking along the beach and one was picking up the little crabs that run on the beach and throwing them back into the ocean and the other person said, "WHY are you DOING that....there's THOUSANDS of them...what DIFFERENCE does it make?"  The first person picked up another crab...and threw it into the ocean and said, "It made a difference to THAT one!" Soooooooooo that's the way "I" feel.

I get questions from people all around the world...and if some of you that know me personally would see some of the emails and questions I get....you'd laugh your head off...because YOU know me as Kay Anderson Comer...President of the Wall Flowers Club of America....and people that read my words but don't SEE my frumpy look...are reading and seeing what's in my heart...and evidently some of them are saying to themselves...."HEY....THIS woman...takes time to LISTEN...and then answers from the HEART"   :-)   Ooooooooooooooor maybe they don't.....hahahahaha   But Billy will tell ya.....I get so SO many emails and PMs from people that just say...."You are such an inspiration!  Your blog is the first place I head every morning to get my fix before I start MY day"   :-)

Now listen....I don't SAY that...to sound SNOOTY!!!   I don't read all the emails and PMs to Billy anymore....I used to...but it got to where there were so many...I knew he didn't really care like "I" do....so now I only read the ones to HIM that are especially sweet or the ones that threaten my life....so I can give him a heads up to be ready.....hahahahaha  Sometimes I'll call Kim and I'll say..."Listen I know you're swamped....but you've got to hear this email I just got..because some are just SO SO inspiring to ME....

The dictionary says to be an "inspiration" is "to be positive stimulation to another human mind" or "A Divine influence" or to be 'inspiring' is "to be able to make someone feel enthusiastic"  To BE inspired...is to be lifted up by a sight or sound or statement...or person.

Decades ago....GADS...even when we were in our early dating days back in the 60's....Billy asked me what I wanted to do or be in my life and I said that all I ever wanted to do or be was a wife and mom and homemaker, but I wanted to be able to 'change lives and influence people".  Well he laughed and laughed and laughed and we joked about that for YEARS beCAUSE I was so SO bashful when I was younger I could hardly even hold my head up in public.

NOW if I'd be in a seminar or something and the speaker didn't show...and they were desperate for someone to fill in and said so...I'm liable to stand up and say "I'll take this gig....how do I get UP there?!"  hahahahahahah  Not sure what I'd TALK about....but I definitely got over the bashfulness....
I'd love to be a life coach....or even a health coach.....

So we all have a choice....each day when we get out of our bed and put our feet on the floor....We can make our day the best it can be....we can lift others up....put smiles on the faces of others....we can be a helper and a lover and a giver and a doer.....or we can whine around all day and make our own lives miserable and that of the lives of almost everybody we come in contact with.....which person would YOU rather be?

To BE an inspiration....we need to BE the change we want to see in the world around us....and that should ALWAYS begin at home....We should talk positive and be uplifting to all we meet...we should think and work only towards the best in everything we do......And I'm so so sorry to say...even I don't always do this.....here I have this dizzy problem and I'm whining to people that have terminal cancer...now how silly is THAT?

We should look at everything and everybody daily....as if we are seeing them or that thing...for the first OR last time....We should do away with the side of us that leans on being a nay sayer...and try to concentrate on being....the best and most positive...we can be.....We all NEED...lots of WOW moments daily.....
To BE an inspiring person....is like being vital nutrients and nourishment to all that we come in contact with....
If you're lucky enough to be MY age or there abouts....you grew up in the 40's and 50's and were a teen in the 60's...so you know what it was like growing up in a world of magic.....Oh yes....we were all fairly poor....but back then....we just had more things that money can't even buy.....like time...and family connections...even to extended family....simple living and life itself....was inspiring...there was so much hope and vision beyond belief.....

So let's all start today....to BE the change we want to see in the world around us.....If we want our home life to be better.....let's make OUR part better...the part WE give....Don't worry about the other person....beCAUSE we have NO CONTROL over the other person or persons in our lives......Let's give more OURSELVES and do more OURSELVES and love more OURSELVES  and be more positive and uplifting and inspiring OURSELVES....Let's be positive and talk positive and work only towards the best of everything......the best life...the best relationship....the best family....
I read once that the real worth of a person.....is determined by what they would be like....if they lost all their money...WOW...

Peace and love from the canyon...I love you all gobs...and thanks so SO much..for stopping by...this has been a bird's eye view of the katydid...until next time....you are loved.....
