Be Inspired Monday: Elements of Inspiration...

although I like her music, I don't like her diva stage presence - it gives mix messages. however, we have something in commom:

elements of inspiration (I selected some scenes for you to watch)___
Times: 00:06, 03:02, 04:50 and 21:04

WATER: "I am always happy when I am surrounded by
water... The ocean makes me feel really small and it puts my life into
perspective. It reminds me... I am a very little piece of this huge
earth. It humbles you and it grounds you...
and I am born again when I get out of the ocean."

SCUBA DIVING: "... I was in such a great peaceful state. It inspired purity."

Swimming is like a therapy to my soul.

STARS: "... Sometimes we don't reach for the stars. Sometimes we are satisfied with what people tell us we are supposed to be satisfied with. And I am not going for it.[the weak mindset]"

I always want to reach for the stars.

"I am learning how to drown out the constant noise which is such an inseparable part of my life. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world. I run my world."

We need inspiration in our lives but, at the end of it all, we run our own world!


Have you ever heard of Beyonce's inspirational words?
Confess ladies, What inspires you?

When I hear Beyonce, I usually automatically think diva, in a positive way. I wasn't able to watch all the video you posted, but what I did watch reminds me of some of the documentaries that I have viewed on her. For me, it is inspiring to see a woman go for her dreams and have such a drive to meet her goals and beyond. Celebrities make it look easy on stage but behind the scenes they put it a lot of work and often more than 40 hours a week.
So I guess I am inspired by seeing people who had to work to get where they are, because that reinforces to me that the road is not easy....And if I press on I can make my dreams come true.

i like Beyonce ... i don't find her too diva-ish because she seems so shy when she isn't performing ... i don't know but that is how i see her. i love that she can really put on her show which makes her appear to be a diva. love her voice and some of her songs are really amazing! she is def. talented!
