Shortly after starting my blog and considering my why, why I wanted to blog and why I wanted this to be a business, there was one word that kept hitting me. There was a time in my life when things looked very dark a major outcome of what I was going through was depression and the feeling of being alone. Don’t worry this is not a dark story. I promised myself that if and whenever I came out of what I went through that I would live to help others know that they are not alone and that I wanted to be a face and a voice of hope. Some years later here I stand with a smile and a heart to INSPIRE.
This word has been ringing in my spirit every time I think about my blog, it’s purpose and it’s mission. Empowerment was my goal but God is saying Inspire. Inspire means to influence, move, or guide by divine or supernatural inspiration, by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. And my favorite of all was the original origin from Middle English enspire to the Latin inspirare of the word’s meaning, “impart a truth or idea to someone.”
The truth or idea I feel led to inspire is that we have this power and confidence down on the inside of us to overcome. Overcome every obstacle life throws at us to knock us down and count us out. The trick of it is finding it deep within us and pulling it out. Life’s never going to be perfect but it can be joyous, happy, peaceful and prosperous. And it all starts with our own mindset.
I read an article that talked about what rich people say you have to become rich. And when I think of rich it’s not just about money. Out of all the things listed, it all boiled down to being positive. After all, if I had a nickle for every time I heard the phrase, “You are what you think.” I just might already be on the wealthy track.
Well even through the birth of my blog something new has been birth in me and through me. I’m now introducing the birth of the Maxi Fashions online store starting with the Inspire Shirt Collection line.
Hit the shop button up top to be taken to the store. Get your shirt, mug, and more as it comes along and help spread some inspiration in this world. You know we all need it.
