“I am always inspired by others – hope these inspire you as they did me. The possibilities are endless.”

My name is Pat Brill, and I discovered blogging in 2007. Blogging is a great way to connect with others. Since I had over ten years of Human Resources experience, I wanted to give back. That’s when I started my first blog: www.ManagingEmployees.net. This blog focuses on helping managers deal with the daily experience of managing people.

I’ve had numerous and different life experiences with my many years of living life. These experiences were consistently creating ‘me’…even if I was busy living life and didn’t stop to reflect. Under the surface, I was absorbing the experience and creating a lesson from it. As I started to review my life experiences, I realized that there were truths I believed in that were just not true.  Many good and not-so-good experiences offer me the power and inspiration to move forward in my life. No matter how many years I have on this life journey, I am still young enough to create what I want.

Over the years, I’ve learned to listen to myself better. This blog came about because…

My dear friend sent me snail mail, something I don’t receive very often anymore. There was one piece of paper where she copied different stories of individuals who have faced challenges and failures and how they had created a full life despite them.

I’ve known her since 1999 when we worked together…she was my boss. We have laughed (a lot), been frustrated, worried, left jobs, and shared good wine during our journey together. We told our stories to each other and created a remarkable friendship. We both had our challenges to face, and yet we continually reached out to move forward in our lives. We found and continue to find inspiration in others’ stories.

My friend wrote a message on top of that page of inspiring life stories…

“I am always inspired by others – hope these inspire you as they did me. The possibilities are endless.”

I was writing one morning, and the paper she sent to me was flat on the table. As I wrote, I kept thinking about her words – “The possibilities are endless,” and these simple yet powerful words inspired me to start this blog. I desire to create a place for myself and others to explore and share life’s many lessons.

Then I opened up one of my favorite books, “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron, and there on page 10 was this quote:

“You need to claim the events of your life to make yourself yours.”
By Anne-Wilson Schaef

Since I believe there are no coincidences, and I was listening, all the events led me to create this blog. Inspiration at its best!

My wish is as the blog grows, you will find creativity, solace, and inspiration within the posts. Share your life lessons and how they have influenced who you are today. Others may gather strength and inspiration from you…just as I received that gift from my friend.

Claim Your Day!



I’m blogging about how the events in our lives create who we are today. I will provide lots of personal experiences, which may or may not be similar to yours.    I will share my solutions and you will read how others have dealt with a similar situation.

Yet, each of us is unique and there is no one way to live a life…just explore yours and live it to the fullest.


==>Share your life lessons with others, so they can see a different perspective.
