Inspring Humans: Josephine Bakhita

When I think of people who inspire me, I’m usually drawn to those who promote peace, love, and things like the environment. I turn to websites like TED to find new inspiration, and only recently have I realized that sometimes the most inspiring people are those who show it through the small things in life.Today is the feast day of Josephine Bakhita, and since I think she is such an amazing person and a great role model she’s my inspiring human this week. She is an example of amazing forgiveness because she gave her years of terrible slavery up to God and never looked for revenge, always trying to help others and bring an end to slavery for all.Read More »

Inspiring Humans: Shawn Achor

Achor, however, is a new light in this world. His collaboration with TED, which I will leave below, shines light on the fact that our current systems (education,medical,etc.) are formulated to produce average, nothing more or less.Read More »

Inspiring Humans: Lauren Singer

On youtube and sites like Ted, I have found a number of really inspiring people that promote great messages. It is so easy to get caught up in all the awful things that happen, and you just have to look at the news to see yet another problem arise. I thought it would be nice to share a few of my favorite inspiring people with y’all and try to promote positive thinking in a new series I’m going to start on my blog.Read More »
