Hello everybody. Today my blog will be about someone or something that inspires me. We are all inspired by something, whether it’s a teacher, or an athlete, or a historical figure. Today I want to talk about what or who inspires me. The first thing that inspires me is the song Brave. It is inspirational to listen to, because it shows me that I can face my fears and tackle them head on. This song also inspires me because it is upbeat and happy. The lyrics make me smile every time I hear the song. Here is the link if you have are not familiar with the song.

I think people everywhere should listen to this song, because it will inspire them to do things they never thought they could do. A person who encourages me is one of the priests at my grandparent’s church. He inspires me, because he shows that if I’m persistent I can get something done. He also makes me smile. I try to do the same for him. As a priest he probably motivates people every day. He is a big inspiration to my whole family. He always enjoys having a conversation with me and my family. My family and I have been friends with him for a long time. My priest friend inspires me to get a college degree. I know that I can do it and he inspires me to get there. I’m not sure what I would study in college yet, but I know I will figure it out. It will be very hard, and I’m going to have a lot of work to do, but everything in life is not easy. Sometimes you have to work hard to get what you want.

Cerebral Palsy has a lot of different challenges, but it motivates me to work even harder to complete those challenges. One of those challenges is getting in and out of bed. Someone always has to pick me up and put me in my chair. Some days I wish I could do it myself. I hope that maybe someday I will be able to. Another one of those challenges is eating even though I can feed myself it is sometimes very hard. I sometimes make a mess.

Although Cerebral Palsy is considered a disability, to me it’s a motivator, one that never leaves and can be challenging. It keeps me focused and motivated to succeed at whatever I put my mind and soul into. What is motivating or inspiring you today, does it also challenge you? That might be so bad.

Let me know what you think!
