What Inspires You?
 
Anyone who Follows me here on ActiveRain knows I like to start each post with a "quote".  I often find quotes or movie lines that inspire a blog post.  
 
This month’s challenge is for you to choose a quote and write a blog post around it.  
 
It can be a famous quote,  movie line, a line from a book or even one you make up yourself that in some way relates to a perspective or philosophy you have about life and/or business.  
 
Here is a sample of a post I wrote recently called Lessons From The Golf Course.  
 
Challenge Guidelines:  Very Easy
* Choose a quote or movie line you like and write a post about what the quote means to you. 
* Minimum word count 200 
* At least one graphic or video
 
Points
1,000 points for your entry into the Challenge

The Challenge deadline is midnight (Pacific time) December 31, 2018.
 
To receive your points, all guidelines (above) must be followed and a link to your post submitted in the comments below. Points will be awarded the first week in January. 

Have fun with it!

Hi Carol, 

Here is my post for your challenge.   "The land....It is the only thing that lasts."  I'm not sure if it is inspirational for eveyone, but I hope to challenge people to get outdoors and enjoy the land in 2019.  

 

Thanks for putting together this challenge.

Happy New Year, Fred.  I hope your "see you later" is soon.  I will definitely miss your knowledgeable input here in the Rain! 

In the meantime, I'm sure you'll be experiencing some new adventures we would love to hear about and could learn from.

Cheers!

Hi Diana Zaccaro ,
I do love your quote choice!  Where would we be but still in the cradle if we never stretched beyond our present capabilities?  LOL  Our individual potential is far beyond what we can even imagine.  We just have to do start.

Thanks for the reminder.  Happy New Year, Diana!

Carol I'm so fortunate to still have my parents.  The first of their nephews passed at age 17 back in 1996 so I was still pretty young and then in 1999 my dad had cancer and for me that has made every day with him a gift to treasure.  Hard to believe that was 20 years ago.  (or will be very soon).  Keith was a big hunk of fun and love always as well as a fierce protector of family.

Thank you, Carol! 

I don't see that the points were issued so, I have re-sent the spread sheet and I'm sure he'll get to it this week. In their defense, I sent the link straight from Google Sheets and sometimes it doesn't go through to them. Anyway, I apologize for the delay in getting everyone's points to them!

Thanks, Carol. And, I agree, we certainly can't spend them - sometimes I wonder why we even collect them!

I'm so sorry, Will.  If you didn't post a link here the "bookkeeper" wouldn't have picked it up.
