Music, church, my family, maybe even a good movie are just a few things that inspire me. I have tons more. It seems that I learn I have a new source of inspiration almost every day. What about you? What is it that gets you motivated? In this edition of IMARA Woman Magazine, we're introducing you to a world of inspiration, right at your fingertips!
When Tangie Beaty and Donna Johnson put pen to paper, amazing things happen. The talented Columbia duo not only write but also direct and produce original stage plays that touch their audiences at the core. Taking real-life situations and giving them new meaning is how their company, Walking On Water (WOW) Productions, is best known. The scripts are creative, well-written and delivered by some of most talented actors in the state. Best of all, their plays are motivating audiences to face their challenges, heal emotional wounds and forge new beginnings. (page 12)
And if you like music like I do, nothing motivates you more than some good gospel. Glory Communications’ radio stations have been a source of inspiration to listeners for the past 20 years. The brainchild of Alex Snipe, the 11 stations play a variety of gospel music and keep listeners inspired to help themselves and others in their communities. (page 16)
Now who among us can resist a good workout? It’s an enjoyable way to relax your mind while working your body. A group of ladies who meet regularly at the Orangeburg YMCA are taking fitness to a whole new level. They are on a mission not just to lose weight but to be healthy! Not a bad way to start the New Year. (page 20)
So whatever it is that you're passionate about, make it a practice to enjoy it often, daily if possible. Don't deny yourself the small pleasures that inspire you and mean so much. Life is just too short to live it unfulfilled. So, I'm ending this letter right now and heading out to see a good movie.
Happy New Year!
