I love being inspired by history, by books, art, other people, - by life. I was as excited as a kid at the fair with way too much cotton candy, when my new Mark Twain book arrived: Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc.
If you aren't overly familiar with Joan of Arc, she has an incredible place in history and definitely worth checking out. She is someone whose courage, heart, passion and integrity are inspiring, and sobering. To live during a point in history when things were at there darkest, and to literally be a light in the darkness is something that I admire in such a young lady. Maybe one day, my life, although it might not be written about in history books, will be one others will find inspiration in. Inspiration to be who they were created to be, and to do it boldly.
