To fully answer this question completely, I have to completely dissect the meaning of what it actually even means TO inspire someone. Miriam Webster defines it this way:
Definition of INSPIRE
To be honest, I don't let others influence me. I CHOOSE whether or not my ideals and opinions change one way or the other based on my research and observation.... not by some happenstance and lobbying of another.
I guess I do look at others' successes in areas which I am involved and that gives me hope... but when I see successes, I tend to just want to celebrate them with others.
Do I want to be the very best at EVERYTHING I do? You bet your ass I do.
I do see creations by other crafters, images captured by other photographers, out of the box learning ideas fashioned by educators, real-world situations dealt with and overcome by fellow parents... I guess their ideas inspire me to push on but motivation for me is internal.
I guess in that sense, then, the world inspires me.
