Motivation Kickstarter Day 4: Someone Who Inspires Me

As part of my quest to find my motivation, I've accepted the 30 Day Writing Challenge.  Each post will be added to the main post HERE.

Someone Who Inspires Me

There is no one who inspires me more than my son.  He makes me want to be a better person, most of what I create is for or because of him, and he evokes emotion in me like no other.  

Before I became a parent, I knew I'd love my child, but there was no way for me to know all he'd do for and to me.  He has created a whole new me just by being who he is.  He has deepened and broadened my understanding of myself, others, and the world around me just by being who he is.  And I want to do more.  I want to keep growing, keep learning, keep changing, keep acting for him.  

My son is ever-present in my consciousness.  Everything I say, think, do is always preceded by the thought of "how will this affect him?"  

I'm not a perfect person.  I'm not even a great one.  I do my best to do what's right, not what's easy, though, and living life alongside my son has taught me more and more about what right really means and has inspired me to do that right always.
