Community. When a group of people come together behind a common idea, belief, or goal, it can be a beautiful thing.
Family. The bond among family members provides a sense of home and foundation that serves to nurture and educate us.
Music. Great music makes a huge difference. The creativity and talent that it takes to compose incredible music can motivate us anyday.
Past Experiences. Whether bad or good, past experiences can motivate us and inspire us to do better in the future.
Storytelling. Similar to music, great storytelling can bring passion and laughter and emotions.
