Within the last 70 years there have been many inspirational people which includes family members and public figures. But, my personal Hero, is Saint Mother Teresa. 
Having nothing to do with religion, but as a person who by her actions, has shown us compassion, humility, and how to be a giving person. I have always considered myself a fairly good person, but when I compare myself with Her, Iโ€™m about 2 miles back, in her dust! And thatโ€™s okay. 
She was an Angel on Earth, who led by her example.

Another inspiration has been Pete Buttigieg.

 

Harvard grad, Rhodes scholar at Oxford, Intelligence officer in the military, Mayor, and youngest Secretary of Transportation................. and the bravery to come out as openly gay.

 

His success, in some small way, shows our society is finally making small strides in acceptance of everyone.

President Joseph R. Biden

 

For him to have experienced the deaths of family as he has and still show the compassion that he does tells me, everyday, to appreciate those that love me and surround me. He also provides an example of how one should treat others.

She lives across the parking lot from me and has recently bought a huge second-hand bike. Lol, everyone knows when she is leaving and returning - loud music and the roar of her bike. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ She inspired me to relocate to Florida to pursue my life long dream of living in a Tiny Home ๐Ÿ˜ Hey, if an old lady like myself just bought a bike ๐Ÿ˜ฑ why can't I relocate? No reason at all!! So thank you Beth ๐Ÿ‘
