Who inspires you?

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
— Marilyn Monroe

People with stories. People with a terrible past. People who live.
Writing has made me wonder who inspires you? Maybe a tv character, an athlete, a celebrity, anyone. Some of them I don’t understand, some I do.

The people who inspire me are my family. They are great people, they will be behind me always and despite everything. They haven’t had everything but they rise above it. They are fighters.

Really, the smallest things can influence me.
These guys on YouTube was another thing inspired me to also write these blogs. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s there videos they’re amazing. It’s the sort of videos you could watch over and over again. (If you’re wondering- these people are called Wong fu productions- you should check them out.)

Even with the smallest things that inspire me, my family always have some influence. We all have it- my mum, dad, brother and sometimes that aunt who you realise is so brave, my grandma who you just love and has always been strong, that immature uncle who can just make you laugh.

Now, who inspires you? Leave a comment below 🙂

Thanks for reading


  1. My kids inspire me because they live passionately, and love to laugh. I too am inspired by people with a challenging past (or present), and still look for the best in their situations. I’m inspired by people who feel fear, but move forward anyway!! Thanks for this post!!

    • Thanks for the comment! I think anyone can be inspiring, kids are great because they know how to live- happily. I feel the same way, people who can move past things- they are truly strong people. The sort of people whose qualities you wish to have. Take care 😛

  2. Great question! So many people are inspiration – my favorite writers, photographers, painters, my kids at school who are excited and want to learn, my best friend for acceptance, husband for his dedication , my kids for their pursuit of what’s most important to them.Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. To me inspiration is meteor. It is totally unexpected and fascinating, so solid yet so imaginary. I could be sitting in a Biology class just to hear a name of some disease and that would be where a novel I have written began. Long, complicated, phonetic words tend to grasp my attention. Inspiration is just like walking in a mine field, you know that any second the ground beneath you might blow up but you don’t know when exactly. Difference is, the explosion is utter beauty.

    • That’s actually such a great way to say. Overall inspiration is beauty. I’m glad you enjoyed it :p
