(Editors Note – April 21, 2010)
The following entry was the highest ranked in the visits category for 2009, so in 2010, the decision was made to focus in on what matters most to our viewers, which again, shows to be things related to
you and yours, so as we say in the hoodburbs,
Let It Do What It Do.
Its 2’sday Newsday, and you are in luck as it just so happens to be a great day for some great news!
Talking to various people over the years and especially this year (2009) I am hearing one word used so often that I decided to go ahead and write about it, as sometimes it is used by others to describe me.
I decided to grab the online dictionary definition, because to me, its just like any other word, which is…just a word, and I believe that if we look closer at how the word is defined or the commonly accepted definition, perhaps it can lead to greater gains and improvements of whatever it represents.
adverb (used with object)
1. to fill with an animating, quickening, or exalting influence: His courage inspired his followers.
2. to produce or arouse (a feeling, thought, etc.): to inspire confidence in others.
3. to fill or affect with a specified feeling, thought, etc.: to inspire a person with distrust.
4. to influence or impel: Competition inspired her to greater efforts.
5. to animate, as an influence, feeling, thought, or the like, does: They were inspired by a belief in a better future.
6. to communicate or suggest by a divine or supernatural influence: writings inspired by God.
7. to guide or control by divine influence.
8. to prompt or instigate (utterances, acts, etc.) by influence, without avowal of responsibility.
9. to give rise to, bring about, cause, etc.: a philosophy that inspired a revolution.
10. to take (air, gases, etc.) into the lungs in breathing; inhale.
a. to infuse (breath, life, etc.) by breathing (usually fol. by into).
b. to breathe into or upon.
Blah blah blah, so on and so forth.
My question is as to whether or not this action or state of being is something that one makes an effort to do, meaning they put energy into achieving this result?
What do you say?
In my opinion, it may often be the case with many, yet with me,
I’m actually just having fun , doing my thing, and keeping myself entertained and active, so if others feel that it serves the demand for inspiration then its a plus for all of us.
I actually heard someone once say that the root word of the word
inspire is the word SPIRIT, and I do see some form of a reference to spiritual matters in the definition of the word inspiration.
While conducting a Google search of the word spirit, I came up with an interesting conclusion.
I guess you could get spooky/ supernatural/otherworldly with it, and talk and think as such, because there are those individuals who have a preference for this type of thought and behavior.
What I found is someone who actually thinks like I do, and they believed that they should just go ahead and start an airline, and use the word Spirit as a brand name,
and let that
serve the need accordingly, and at this point in history, even the most enlightened of mystics with large followings, have yet to acquire the means to travel around the world without the help of an airline, so this is my kind of inspiration, and it might just could work for you too.
See You At The Top
