Inspire Me Today: It’s Time to Wake Up and Live!

When I first stumbled upon Inspire Me Today, I immediately fell in love with the idea.

A new Luminary is featured each day, but the topic is the same:

“If you had only 500 words of wisdom to leave to humanity, what have you learned in life that you’d want to share with others? What matters and what doesn’t?”

Wow. A big question! I felt inspired by the challenge, and tackled it from this perspective:

“If I only 500 words of wisdom to leave my daughter, what would they be?”

Read the 500 words of wisdom I want to share with the world (and my daughter) here.

What’s the one piece of wisdom you’ve gained in your lifetime that you feel is most important to share? Enlighten us in the comments below!

what do you want her to know?

    I worked for a women, who, when I would start to get stressed, or upset, or overwhelmed about something, would say, “Is this the mountain you want to die on?” That one question has helped me keep things in perspective since then.

      What an interesting way to phrase it, I’ve never heard that one before! Thanks so much for sharing!

    My advice to my children would be: “Stand up straight, stand up for yourselves and be kind always.”

  3. Kallee says:

    That is a tough question.  I would tell them to remember that they are a child of God and that they are precious.

    Wow, that is indeed a challenge, one of my favorites is “You only get this one life…” meaning go for it!

  5. Kelly says:

    Love Yahweh and folllow Him always – everything else will work out.

  6. Sandra says:

    Sometimes when you feel overwhelmed and get stressed ask yourself, “will this matter in 5 years?” It makes you think what’s important in the long run.

  7. Michelle Marine says:

    Oh tough question – I actually really love the wisdom from the latest Cinderella movie – Have courage and be kind. :-)

  8. Betsy @ Desserts Required says:

    “This too shall pass” is what I share with others.  On the very best of days, take it all in and remember that, this too shall pass.  On the very worst days, understand that, this too shall pass.  :-)
