It has been two weeks since the passing of Kobe Bryant. For two weeks I have mourned the death of a man I did not know or even really follow closely. During these two weeks I have watched every video of him that has popped up on my news feed. I cried during his tribute before the Lakers game from beginning to end. I now have a clear understanding of the man that Kobe Bryant was. He inspired so many people around the world and had such a positive impact on millions of people. He truly was great in every way. He has inspired men to be better fathers. He has inspired athletes to play harder and train harder. He has inspired people to follow their dreams and never give up. He has inspired people to love each other harder and to live life to the fullest every day because it can all be over in a flash.
His passing has really made me take a closer look at my life. He has motivated me to keep inspiring others. I first started blogging because I am passionate about all things to do with fashion and beauty. I was surprised when I started receiving messages from friends and family that my blogs and posts were inspiring. This made me extremely happy and proud. I am a very positive person and I want to inspire people to feel great about themselves and motivate them to live their best life. I know I will never touch as many lives as Kobe did, but I can damn well try my hardest to inspire as many people as possible. I think we should all inspire others. What are you great at? Use that greatness to help inspire others. Let’s raise each other up and live our best lives possible!
