Soul Surfer (Now on Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack & DVD), the true story of pro surfer Bethany Hamilton who lost her arm in a shark attack and became determined to get back on the board basically inspired our pants off. And it got us thinkin’… what inspires you in your day-to-day life?
Here’s what real gURL members like you said on the boards:
“My mom, because she inspires me to live my dreams and not to be afraid to stand up for myself.”
“So many people inspire me, but people that spring to mind now are Marie Curie, Eric Kandel, Albert Einstein, Aung San Suu Kyi and the Dalai Lama. (Nobel prizes are required, haha.)”
“A lot of the women on this board have inspired me to be strong and independent and smart about sex, and to never let anyone make me feel ashamed of my sexuality. They’ve partially inspired me to become a really big feminist, which I’m so thankful for. And even if I don’t yet, I’m inspired by many women on here to love my body, no matter what society says. I haven’t accepted how I look yet, but hearing the stories and the attitudes of other gURLs is helping me get there.”
Okay, so we already knew our readers were rad, and you’re all totally inspiring us now too! Want to start connecting with other gURLs to find your inspiration? Start talking in gURL’s boards now!
