Think hard for a second... what does determination in the face of adversity truly look like? Who in your life is the definition of "at first you don't succeed...?" Where do you pull your unexplainable understanding for life and love? Who can you say honestly never gives up? What does it look like when somebody refuses to take "no" for an answer? For me, all answers point to Monica. She is the inspirational GOAT for several reasons, so let's jump right in, shall we?
You know that one person in your life (besides you) that works too hard and doesn't know how to sit down? Do you know the girl that spends so much time trying to encourage others and lift them up that sometimes she spreads herself too thin and forgets to be there for herself? Well I know her, and her name is Courtney. Courtney is diligent, radiant, joyous and overall supportive. Everybody needs a friend like Courtney, and not only because she'll be there for us when we are up, but because she's willing to go to bat for us when we are down. Courtney is a phenomenal woman; a passionate woman. Spotlight, On!
"P E R C E P T I O N - you have total control of perception. Will you take things personally and with lack of understanding? Or will you use humanity and kindness as a lens to view the world? it's nearly impossible to be hurt by others or knocked down by life when you take control of your perspective. Everything can become beautiful... the process, the unexpected, the pain. Change your perception and you'll change your life."
And that, everybody, brings us to Isabel; this week's Spotlight, On feature!
A lot of times, I receive really awesome blog comments that motivate me to keep writing, so shout out to all of you that gas me up. Because of this, I feel inclined to spotlight those people and things that inspire me to write. Who are we without inspiration? Where does our drive come from if not the influences around us in our daily lives? This gem right here has NEVER missed a post and I am thankful for her. Therefore, Titziana S. James is my very first Spotlight, On feature. Enjoy...!
features my inspiration whether it be other bloggers, good people I met on the street, a quote I found in a magazine, etc. realize that we don't do anything until we are inspired to do so. So, the spotlight is ON!
