I love these definitions of inspire:

  • to animate
  • to stimulate to action
  • to fill with enlivening or exalting emotion
  • to spur on or to encourage

I was inspired by this video of Jon Schmidt:


It is inspiring to me to see someone such as Jon that loves what he does.  I am inspired by people that dedicate time and effort to perfect their skill and then share it so generously with others.

I am impressed that Jon dedicated this song to his daughter.  In a sense, she inspired him to do this arrangement.  I think we are all capable of inspiring others, and perhaps that is one of our greatest callings in life- to encourage, to strengthen, and to inspire others to do and to be their best.

Thanks, Jon, for the inspiration!
