About Dyan

I am an intensely creative spirit who loves to inspire and help others.  I am an author, publisher, artist, adventurer, music lover, meditator, gardener and dreamer.  I am a passionate environmentalist.  (My name, Dyan, is pronounced like Diane.)

I started writing when I could hold a pen.  I haven’t stopped writing yet.  I have decades of formal and informal research and study in all fields related to psychology and social work.  I have decades of work experience in the helping field as a counselor and as an advocate for others.

I started Be Inspired! because I needed it.  I needed to be reminded of the love in the world that starts inside of each of us.  I have experienced a lot in my life.  I have done my best to make lemonade out of the most sour lemons.

This is intended to be a short burst of inspiration, 5 days a week.  I can also be found on twitter and Facebook, providing a steady stream of love every day.

I usually use the term the “Creator” or “Divine” when referring to God, Higher Power, Inner Wisdom, Buddha, Jesus, Oneness, Nature, or any other holy name you can think of.  Please use whatever name you are comfortable with.  Please do not be afraid to find wisdom wherever it is.




  1. Hey, lovely to have you following. Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts with me. Peace~David


  2. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you write again very soon!


  3. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.


  4. I like the first bit of your post here. It has so powerful effect on me. Maybe because I never had a courage to say that I am ‘an intensely creative spirit, an artist….’

  6. Thanks for all the likes on my blog Dyan. Your words ring true in relation to why I am on my current travels. I am hoping to help others much like you do with your own blog, and through your counseling. Hope to talk more in the future on here and on Facebook.

    Thanks again,

  7. I like the thought which says any love you can give yourself contributes to the whole world! Very insightful indeed, Dyan. Thank you for following us at Five Quick Minutes. We are adding content each day or two, but it must be helpful in some way.

  8. Thank you for your consistent, never-ending support in loving what I write on Totally Inspired Mind, Photos That Inspire Words and Cooking Up a Storm With Miss Polly. If you aren’t on the second and third web sites I created, the links are:


    What is your name and are you in Facebook or Twitter? I am.

    Your background sounds as interesting as mine and you and I agree on many things. You have a beautiful way of expressing yourself.

  10. So Dyan, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…


I love to hear from you!
