Inspiration is everywhere. I'm inspired by so many others that I have mentioned before, things I see, places I go, ideas that are passed along from others, etc.
I've never really felt like I'm that inspiring to others, I'm just ordinary me... There was a fellow vendor at the Yamboree this year. She came by and wanted to look inside my camper and we visited a little while. She had been thinking about getting her own camper to travel to shows, as a means to support her family. Her friends discouraged her and told her she wouldn't do it.
The next day, we met in the walkway, and she brought tears to my eyes. She said you don't realize how inspiring you are to me. You give me a new outlook and determination for my business. The camper she had looked at, had already sold, but she's looking for her another one. I wish I got her name and contact info. If you're reading this, please contact me and let me know what's going on. I meant to come by your booth on Saturday and it just didn't happen. I hope we meet again and your setting up your camper!
We live our ordinary lives and don't realize how we can have an impact on others. Be an encouraging friend, not a discourager. In a world full of negativity, be the happy.
