Find inspiration in the simple things

Updated: Apr 24, 2020

Happy Wednesday and Welcome to the first Born To Inspire blog post. To start out I would like to share a little about myself and why I'm here today. I am fascinated with the art of story and it has been my long-time dream to tell the tales of love, kindness, and generosity throughout the world. In January of this year, I finally made this dream a reality with Born To Inspire Podcast. Since then, I have interviewed philanthropists, non-profits, and small businesses working to reinvent themselves during the COVID-19 Pandemic. And through getting to know these big-hearted folks, I found they all had a common thread between them. During their darkest hours, they chose to give.

Susan DiNapoli is the CEO of The Sue DiNopoli Ovarian Cancer Society in Colorado. She named her nonprofit after her mother who died of ovarian cancer. Susan's foundation offers financial help to women dealing with gynecological cancers. Meanwhile, Dusty Ray, a small business owner in Colorado Springs has had to shift the way he does business due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His shop, Energy Art and Goods is closed, but he's now doing virtual shopping sessions with customers and getting his product supply from local manufacturers. Dusty is also giving back to his community by promoting other businesses in his neighborhood through social media posts, uniting the small business community.

So the moral of this story is to find inspiration in the simple things: giving of yourself, lifting each other up, and perhaps enjoying an occasional video chat.

Oh, and if you can, take the time to go out and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of nature, at a safe social distance.

All the best,
