Inspiration in Your Life - The Bipolar Question of the Week

John McManamy Health Guide January 22, 2013
  • Yesterday was Martin Luther King Day. My Facebook newsfeed was full of inspirational MLK quotes. I particularly enjoy this one: “Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.”   For good measure, along with the usual pictures of cats,...

    I don't have any fancy words or quotes to write but I can add a little to this post. When you asked the question "Ispiration in your life, tell us about it" I immediately thought of the one and only person that has crossed my path in life that truly inspired me.

    I don't have any fancy words or quotes to write but I can add a little to this post. When you asked the question "Ispiration in your life, tell us about it" I immediately thought of the one and only person that has crossed my path in life that truly inspired me. Many years ago, when my kids were young I worked for the most amazing women. She was our pastors wife and my boss. I was in charge of many areas surrounding Sunday school and one night a week we had a family dinner and I set up the children's room with Veggie Tales videos, crafts and snacks. I was the "teacher" for the night. This job made me feel very important and independent. I always had my three kids at the time with me. To work at a job that I enjoyed and work for an amazing person at the same time was very special. She had a special way about her. The way she talked, the words she used, her kind and giving heart, her warmth and all of her being was so amazing. Inside I really felt like she was an angel. She made me feel good, confident (although there was no way I could ever speak in front of the congregation, as I was asked to do a few times), welcomed and she trusted my judgement and the decisions I made. I eventually moved away. One of my many mistakes. I missed being around her and my job. But, she has always stayed in my heart. When I think of her it makes me smile and remind myself that there are great people in this world. She is the only person I have ever met like this, and I have met many. I'm a pretty negative person when it comes to any kind of situation and particularly when it comes to people. I struggle with opening up to people and most of the time just talking to people, depending on my mood. This women always made it easy with her because she was so caring. She is always in my heart and I feel lucky and blessed to have had her in my life.

      In case anyone is wondering why I never put spaces in between my paragraphs, I do. I don't know what the deal is. They never show up, just a bunch of words in one huge paragraph. I only use my IPAD and I think this is the problem. The computer does just fine but it's not convenient for me as I do all of my reading and typing from bed, my "office". So I hope...

      In case anyone is wondering why I never put spaces in between my paragraphs, I do. I don't know what the deal is. They never show up, just a bunch of words in one huge paragraph. I only use my IPAD and I think this is the problem. The computer does just fine but it's not convenient for me as I do all of my reading and typing from bed, my "office". So I hope it's not to difficult to distinguish when I start a new paragraph. I just needed to add this in here since this has been the case while on Health Central. Thanks for reading.
