What does it mean to be inspired? The dictionary definition that I like the best is: a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation. I think of it as the act of drawing in breath, breathing in god’s heart and mind.
Like most of us, I have a dream. LemonadeMakers is my vision that pulls me through each and every day. The space it currently occupies is a wide chasm from where I believe it can go. I know, from the bottom of my soul, that this is why I was born. And if I let my mind go wild, it is terrifying to think of everything that I need to do in order to grow it into what it is meant to do. That is where inspiration comes in. It gives me the confidence to admit I don’t know it all, but I can find someone who does. It gives me the courage to think outside the box to figure out a way to get everything done on a shoestring budget. It helps me use my favorite words of improvise, adapt and overcome when I come up against 2 ton boulders that block my way. It gives me super powers to blast those boulders into pebbles and continue on my journey. It gives me the grace to let someone else take the wheel when I am tired and not think that I have to do it all myself. It empowers me, refueling my tank when it is low to keep on the path to the next destination. Inspiration is the key to the kingdom.
I am married with 4 grown children who are all married and currently have 14 grandchildren and two great granddaughters. I work fulltime as a Director at Bank of America and I am the founder of LemonadeMakers.org, which is a website and Facebook page dedicated to personal transformation and growth. We all have life's lemons show up in our life, this website helps us to make them into lemonade.
