Things that make you feel good, inspire you or stir something deep inside can have a profound effect.
Knowing what inspires you, can motivate and support you in understanding more about yourself, what’s important to you and the life you want to lead. Inspiration can be found in many different places. So, wherever you are notice what you are drawn to and be sure to surround yourself with good and positive things. Even small things can make a big difference. Here are some things that inspire me…

'Everything is a Present'
Wisdom from Alice, an incredible lady who aged 109 still practised the piano for 2 hours each day! She survived the concentration camps through her music, her optimism and her gratitude for the small things that came her way - a smile, a kind word, the sun. Aged 104 and 98 she made two prize winning films, Everything is a Present and We Want the Light with Allegro Films. Truly Inspirational.
