Forum: Who and what inspires you?

So what you are watching here is very sick little girl who is on chemotherapy for cancer. She is in the hospital getting blood transfusion and was feeling down.

This pediatric oncology nurse is singing "love is an open door" from every little girls favorite disney movie frozen. He got her to smile! If even for a little bit. I don't know either of these two, but they both inspire me. She inspires me to be strong and no matter what is happening in life there is always something to smile about. He plain and simply inspires me to be a better nurse and person.

My question to you is, who inspires you and why?

Happy Friday all and I hope this brought a smile to your face like it did to mine!

Forum: Brave
I was listening to the song "Brave" by Sara Bareilles and I just love it. It makes me think of the how I felt when I took that first step to going to college. By the time I enrolled in I was a 26 year old wife and mother to two. I had been out of hight school for almost 10 years and I wasn't sure I had what it took. I thought for sure I would fail. I had no confidence, but I knew I wanted more. More not only for myself, but more for children. More for my husband so he didn't have to bust his butt so much to support all of us. So I held my breath and I did it! I signed up for college! And not only did I sign up and go, but I I was good at it. I excelled! I was much smarter than I ever realized and it gave me something that nobody can ever take from me. It gave me bravery and confidence in myself.

My question to you is, when was the last time you did something brave and how did it change you?



You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just want to see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave
