What are you influenced by?
The media? Telivision? Magazines?
Your parents/family members/children/ friends/siblings/spouse or significant other?
How about your favorite celebrities? Your faith? Blogs?
I am influenced by so many variables on a regular basis. Some good, some bad. Some that make me struggle and question my ethics, wants and desires, and others that make me happy to be where I am.

This is a very special week for me because it is my blogiversary!
 On October 23, my blog will be 1 year old! I have learned so much about myself and others through my online exploration through blogging, self-reflection, making friendships, and trying new things. I have been influenced in positive ways, sought and given advice, made great friendships, and have learned to craft and do so many amazing things through the blogosphere.
You all influence me on a regular basis and I wanted to start off this week celebrating us; influential women!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from influential women:
{{No one can make us feel inferior unless we allow them to.}} *Eleanor Roosevelt
{{I wear my heart on my sleeve.}}*Princess Diana [and myself]
{{Intense love does not measure, it just gives.}}*Mother Teresa 
{{A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.}} *Marilyn Monroe

{{Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.}}*Anne Frank
{If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.}*Katherine Hepburn
Thanks to Sailur Purrs for pointing out that Katherine Hepburn's quote is listed although I have a photo of Audrey here. I wrote back to SP and said, "I thought something was funny about this-I didn't know that Katherine Hepburn and the Breakfast at Tiffany's girl was the same person." Turns out she isn't. I was going to change the picture but it is good to laugh at yourself for your mistakes so I am going to leave it. All because I hope it is a positive influence. {wink}
So again, what are you influenced by?

What wonderful inspiration! I think I'm most inspired by opera singers I respect and admire, and blogs certainly give me visual inspiration, especially yours!

Glad to hear about the blog's birthday and your Mama's visit!

Happy blogversary!

I'm influenced by the free spirit of others. Being part of this wondering blog community has stretched me, made me think and to it, I'm grateful.

Lovely post. Art and music inspire me. Joanna Newsom on my record player is inspiring me to sew these days.

* I love the Katharine Hepburn quote {but you know the photo is Audrey Hepburn, yes? ;-)}
