Update

Lately I’ve come across a tremendous amount of stories and people who will inspire you and help you achieve your goals and continue striving. I am no longer working full-time in journalism (but I am working full time), which is why you will notice posts will be quicker and may be less formal. However, I am excited to announce I will be posting more for you to be inspired! Each post is worth my time and yours, I promise. Together, let’s make a difference. What will you do?

Inspiration from Istanbul

When I was in Istanbul recently we met a shop owner who as a young teen walked all the way from Afghanistan to Istanbul. It took him eight months but he made it.

Ironically, the day after we got back 60 Minutes aired an episode called “The Long and Dangerous Journey” (air date: 5/19). It featured many of the thousands of young boys from Afghanistan who are risking it all for a better life.

No matter what’s going on in life, there are people out there who have circumstances that are worse and are still happy and gracious. They’re inspirational, and they don’t even need anyone else to see that. They just want opportunity and they take it upon themselves to get it without blaming anyone else.
