What do you have to go through to be inspiring?  Every single day I hear amazing stories of people who have come out of crisis and turmoil to do incredibly inspiring things.  It is very inspiring to hear about people who have come up out of adversity and chose to try to help others.  And when we are going through something specific, we know we can trust someone who has been through the same thing.

But we do not have to go through anything to be inspiring.  We do not have to experience crisis in order to help someone out.  It feels just as wonderful to help, regardless of what we have been through.

When we have compassion for others, we can help.  It does not matter what our story is.  A kind word, a helping hand or even just a smile and a hug can be more helpful than we can imagine.
