The Power of the Human Spirit: An Inspirational Series

Hi there, fellow nerds! I decided to start working on something a bit different than anything I normally do. While struggling with a very difficult time, personally, I stumbled on a story about a girl battling depression. Her story positively impacted me so much that it helped me change my life for the better. I became obsessed with the beautiful power of the human spirit.

So often, when we are battling difficult circumstances, we feel so alone. In reality, we are FAR from alone. I want to start sharing inspirational stories that show how powerful the human spirit truly is. People do persevere through difficult circumstances and sharing those stories have the potential to help so many people; to provide both inspiration and wisdom.

Starting next week, I will begin publishing some of these stories on my blog. While I am currently interviewing a couple of truly incredible people who persevered through rough circumstances, I would love to hear & share more stories. Due to the sensitive nature of some of these stories, you would have the option to remain completely anonymous. If you would like to, however, I would share your blog (if you have one), your name and social handles. Your story could help pull somebody out of a rough spot and provide inspiration. If nothing else, it could show others that they are not alone in their struggle.

Here are the types of stories/circumstances I am looking for: (But, I am open to ANY story where you overcame a tough obstacle). The goal is to spotlight the amazing power of the human spirit:

  • Mental Health Issues
  • Addiction
  • Career Obstacles
  • Domestic Violence
  • Loss
  • A tough Life Transition
  • A Huge setback of any kind

If you are interested in sharing YOUR story to inspire others, please get in touch with me ASAP. Your story could inspire and even change the lives of others. Let’s revel in the power of the human spirit. There is so much wisdom in these types of stories. Wisdom should always be passed on 🙂 I look forward to hearing more incredible stories!

Have an incredible day 🙂
