spotlightWelcome to my Spotlight Sunday! Every Sunday I put someONE or someTHING I love IN the Spotlight!

Anyone is welcome to use the idea on their own blog and spotlight whoever or whatever THEY choose, but if you do, please use my lovely graphic that my friend made somewhere in your post to show that the idea came from here! And I would love it if you left the link in my comments, so I could go check out what YOU spotlighted!

Today, I just want to spotlight some Personal Inspiration through photos!


This is my background for my laptop(that I use primarily for work). Every time I open it up, I see my new great niece Alexia and feel so happy  and inspired!

weightlossThis is from the last weight check I did. Although it doesn’t show the FULL amount I’ve lost, seeing that lower number inspires me to keep going!

myjourneySeeing the physical evidence to match the numbers doesn’t hurt, either! 🙂

beautifulWho doesn’t get inspired by a beautiful sunrise or sunset? 🙂

booksAn inspiring quote to go along with an inspiring thing, which is books! I love reading and it inspires me so much! If you’re reading along and you don’t love what you’re reading, what’s the point?


This is me as a baby listening to music, one of my first true loves. Music is and will always remain a source of inspiration for me!

loveThis is an old picture of me with my husband in 2008 before we were even engaged. He is my Inspiration for never giving up because he battles Bipolar and he has loved me throughout the worst of my Depression and loves me no matter what size I am! I love you, Chad!

These are just photos of a tiny amount of the things that inspire me, but during those times when I feel like I don’t have the energy to go on or the ability to go for what I want, it really helps having these things in my life AND just looking through the photos gives me inspiration! What are some of the things in your life that inspire you most? Does looking at photos that represent those things help you too or do you need the real thing as well? 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
