Heya @scared01 this thread is so awesome, thanks for starting it.
Just popped it in under Wellbeing "Special Discussions" as I think it's a pretty special discussion.
Everyone on RO inspires me Relentless resilience and growth, I love watching it. Who inspires you? Also if I need a pick me up my go to youtube is Gary Vaynerchuk.

What a great thread @scared01!! It really made me think and feel really grateful for everyone who inspires me. I want to make them proud Who inspires you?
I love this thread idea @scared01! Honestly there are too many people to list, so I'll have to have a think about my top few and share them here
Ray, when you're on the Titanic, you load the lifeboats. You don't stop to yell at the iceberg.
GREAT im glad you like the thread
I think everyone here who is on the forums inspires me. they are all brave, kind and caring and despite differences or having a bad day there is still someone around to share your thoughts with.
everyone on here has their own story and by sharing inspiring other people to share theirs as well and to me to be brave and courageous enough to share you thoughts on here is inspiring. so i guess that makes all of you
this is such a good thread @scared01!
I definitely would say my mum. She literally lets nothing stop her - she has type one diabetes but will still play on two different sports teams, run every day, have a thriving career and family, and still manage to be a balanced and calm person. Until recently she didn't have any qualifications, but worked her way to being the best in her area through hard work alone, and i remember her being like this ever since I was a kid. I love her so much if I could be half the person she is i would be happy.
And another sort of narcissistic answer - I inspire myself! Sometimes I look back on my life and what I've done and think, you know, I'm actually doing pretty good. I can keep going. I've made it through all these other things, so I can face whatever challenge is facing me at that time.
