AOL & Jeep ® “Life is Legendary” Campaign

What inspires you? This is the question I was asked in reference to the Life Is Legendary campaign that AOL & Jeep® are running. The mission of this campaign is to connect with single ladies like myself and express that single women are marvelous pioneers living inspired lives, and living life on their own terms, embracing their womanhood and freedom.

So, what inspires me? What inspires me to live a legendary life?
The first things I think of are my daughter, my freedom, my nation’s history, beautiful art, and satisfying music. Going deeper, my own experiences inspire me daily to press forward and keep moving. It would have been too easy to have given up at this point. To accept the little voice inside my head that keeps ranting you can’t! I’ve fallen victim to the voice before, but I’ve kept moving, grasping my dreams one by one. Being able to go through the wondrous miracle of being able to give life to a child, I realized that I would be doing my daughter a disservice if I merely existed in this world. That wasn’t enough. I wanted to live. I want to live.
Selfless people who have given their time and often their lives to help others inspire me. Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Mother Theresa, Ghandi, and Ella Baker to name a few. Reading about their journey, about the severe challenges they faced, knowing that they were change makers using nonviolent means, all to make this world a better place for myself and my child, makes me grind harder. I’m not in this life to be a cheerleader on the sideline; I’m in it to win it. Go hard, or go home.

What inspires you to live a legendary life? I encourage you all to upload your own Inspiration Board by clicking HERE. AOL & Jeep® have created this custom destination where you’ll be able to develop an Inspiration Board online outlining everything you represent and what you aspire to be.
