  • My Inspirational Daughter

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Beth Bowdler</a>:<br />This is a photo of my daughter. She is a member of the British Army and is currently serving again in Afghanistan. She always has a smile on her face, no matter how trying her circumstances. She lights up a room whenever she enters it. She inspires others, pushing them to achieve their full potential.

  • My Favourite Lady

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Lucy Webster</a>:<br />This is my mum on a family holiday to India 3 years ago and she is my inspirational woman. Compared to many other women I don't suppose she would appear much different but to me she is outstanding. Everyday she puts up with me and my Dad, the daily stresses of work and bills and appointments as well as coping with lymphedema as a result of her fight with breast cancer 13 years ago. She supports me in my decisions and ambitions and I couldn't think of a woman I would rather have as my mother more.

  • My mother bear

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">jenny owen</a>:<br />This is me my mum and my kids. My mum is definitely my inspirational woman! She has taught me everything I know and therefore made me the best mum I could be to my own kids. Saying that though, shes that great the kids always say they want to live at nainis house!:)

  • Doctor 'ATE' !

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">chrriss88</a>:<br />My daughter was a very chubby child, and I a very large adult, when she achieved her University degree and lost weight it inspired me to lose 7 stone and attend day school for computing in my retirement. I love her dearly she's my inspiration.

  • My Mum

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Maggie Bermann</a>:<br />Without even having to think about it my mum is just a pure inspiration to me. She is nearly 80, and had Major Heart surgery this year. We very nearly lost her and she spent a week in ITU, yet less than 4 months later she is driving again! Even the surgeon says she is a walking miracle. Doesn't matter when or what i know can lift the phone and she always gives me sound advice. We may live 300 miles apart but as close as a mother and daughter should be in our hearts

  • Daughter-in-love

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Lesley Bambridge</a>:<br />Here I am with my daughter-in-law Debbie.

  • My personal Inspiration.

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">GREENSH3D</a>:<br />My partner Terrie is my true inspiration in life; two years ago I lost my job through redundancy, which I had held for the previous 15 years. I`ll be 40 this year and she persuaded me to go for it and to chase my life time dream to go in to wildlife conservation. Last year with Terrie's help I enrolled at university, she had both emotionally and financially supported me 100% the entire time, never questioning or complaining about anything I have done, she is my rock. Terrie works over 40hrs a week to support us both and to be honest I could never again meet someone as special as her, she never asks for anything in return and she really inspires me every day to carry on, when I have finished I will make her proud of me, but she is truly a woman which I hope my children would aspire to be like.

  • The Woman in the Mirror

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">hattulla</a>:<br />I found this picture in my grandmother's house, about 2 years ago, when my mother and I were sorting her things out after she died. In the picture she's very young, before her marriage, and she's holding a mirror in her hands with a sort of distant, remote expression. It's the most accurate souvenir I have of her. My mother's mother was a difficult woman. She was strict, emotional, stubborn, anxious, with a very short temper and a fragile health. I couldn't understand her when I was little, in fact I didn't like her at all. We fought constantly. It was only with time that we learned how to talk to each other. She made up stories for me. She told me that, as a girl, she used to put rags in the keyhole and in the crack under the door of her room so that her mother wouldn't see the light streaming out and beat her for reading in the middle of the night. She told me how she met my grandfather before the war and how they had been engaged for 10 years before finally getting married. She told me about the people who lived in the building when they first moved in with their two daughters. She told me about that one time when my mother, age 3, had fallen headfirst into a barrel of water and almost drowned. She tried to remember the countless times she'd been ill. I found out that she could laugh and sing and love. She had been well-off, she had been poor, she had always worked without ever having a job, she loved reading and learning but she had to leave school. Together with my grandfather she raised two kids and supported them both through the university, always afraid of losing them, afraid her body would fail her. Instead she lived to be 88, and though she was still bitter and depressed at times, she could also find great joy in her family, her community, her life. I always think of her when something hits me too hard. To remember that the struggle isn't over.

  • my nana

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">plumblossom23</a>:<br />my nana taught me from a very young age that a sense of humour was essential in getting through life. She also firmly believed that everything, good or bad, happened for a reason and that you'd be able to look back and see what the reason was later on.

She filled my childhood with happy memories of her constant laughing and always looking for the good in everyone - fantastic role model to all seven of her gran kids.

  • My Incredible Mother

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">ManthyShep</a>:<br />This is my mother. She's inspirational because her big heart knows no limits and she goes out of her way to help anyone she meets. We're a very small family and she spent my childhood caring for my great nan, then each of my grandparents in turn as they fell ill. She had no life of her own but not once did she complain. In 2003 she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. She almost died but her fighting spirit carried her through and her concern was always with the welfare of myself, and my father. She's amazing.

  • Every woman

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">morganv6</a>:<br />My Mom is my world. She is the most clever, inspirational, kind and lovely lady I know. She was one of the first women to go to university to study dentistry, and she had a lengthy and successful career. She instilled in me independence, determination, courage and confidence that I can do anything I want. She taught me to be kind, appreciate beautiful things, and to cook. I love you mom xXx

  • Me @ 51 years young!

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">swany5</a>:<br />To be honest I inspired myself at age 51 years to take up fitness to stop high blood pressure and high cholesterol also depression, I made a concious decision to change my life for the better now I inspire others through training and diet lifestyle choices that they can too help to change th ageing process and make it easier to adapt to the changes in our lives as we age. I am not boasting about myself just stating that we should look within ourselves before we put others on a pedestal for inspiration!

  • My sister the superwoman

    <a href=" Bell"><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href=" Bell">HuffPost Blogger Poorna Bell</a>:<br />My sister and I are incredibly close, she's my confidante, the person I call every day and the person who can talk me down from the biggest of temper tantrums. There are two instances that have brought us closer together - I call them broken heart problems. She, figuratively, when she went through a divorce a few years ago, and me last year when I had to have heart surgery. I love her, she is my strength and my rock, and I don't know what I'd do, or the person I would be without her. This pic is typical of us on holiday - our cab driver in India decided that traffic lights were optional.

  • Abuela Alicia

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">miniroses17</a>:<br />The woman that inspires me the most is my 95 year old paternal grandmother Alicia Guerra. She is a true warrior, just like her last name. She is a survivor. In her native Cuba during the beginning of the communist regime in the late 50´s, as she told me in her own words, she “became weary of her prosaic life and longed for self-independence, world travel and adventure. During a time in which it was unheard of a woman with children to divorce, she did exactly that and immigrated to the US alone to find a better life for her and for the 3 small children (my father included) that she left behind. When she was in the US she held multiple jobs simultaneously to send money to Cuba for her children and little by little she managed to send visa petitions for her sons who themselves became heads of households in Cuba and brought the entire family to the US in mid. 80´s. She is a strong woman and survivor because she has outlived 2 of her sons, whom she buried here in the US, one who died of liver decease at age of 61 and the other pneumonia at the age 67 and yet she manages to wake up and care of her last remaining son who suffers from diabetes. Her mind is intact; she still has good judgment and memory. She is an elderly woman and yet she still walks with grace. I am truly blessed to have as an inspiration my grandmother and I hope she lives many more so that my young child could remember her.

  • My Wonderwoman

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">splitcap</a>:<br />Who would have thought that this little beauty would turn out to be the most unselfish, best wife,mother and grandaother in the unuverse?

  • My Late Beloved Mother

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">moz69</a>:<br />she taught me everything i have needed to be polite, courteous and respectful and i miss her every single day

  • My fabulous mom

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">treebond</a>:<br />When I think of my mom I see rays of sunlight around her because she is such a beautiful person inside and out. She always puts others before herself and even at age 76 with her own health problems she is still doing stuff for other people with no thought for herself! She is such an inspiration to me, she is so loving, kind, patient and giving. A true angel.

  • My little sister

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Rory MacGregor Kirkwood</a>:<br />We lost our mother to clinical depression 6 years ago and then Selena was diagnosed with a brain cyst. She pulled herself together, went through the surgeries, and even though she might be living with this condition for the rest of her life is an absolute champ. She's got a great attitude and makes the most of things. I'm still trying to live up to that idea.

  • My mum Breda and me

    After my dad died when I was 4, my mum raised 5 children – from school leavers right down to school starters, all while keeping a business afloat in recessionary Ireland in the ‘80s (not a pretty time). She’s the toughest person I know, afraid of nothing, adventurous and most of all fun. My mum’s the best. <em>Trisha Doyle</em>

  • My mum, Vivienne Skeen

  • A sister's love

    She will be annoyed at this photo – as we are clearly worse for wear. At the time this was taken I needed a lot of support and she was there for me no questions asked and never a bad word. She inspired me to where I am now through the sheer power of unending patience and sisterly love. I love her! She’s my rock. <em>Steph Jones</em>

  • Beautiful Woman

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Eve2014</a>:<br />This woman has overcome so much diversity yet still smiles as bright as the sun.

  • She never stops smiling

    ...because she is the happiest, funniest & most selfless person I know, if the world were full of people like my mum it would be a very amazing place! <em>Edel Flood</em>

  • Me and Mum

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">alexisj</a>:<br />Andrea is inspirational because she never gives up. She is truly resilient during the toughest times, from family drama to fighting breast cancer. My Mom is the type of person who has spent her life giving her energy and time for others. She's my inspiration.

  • My beautiful mum

    She raised 4 children, never missing one of our extra-curricular school activities/performances (despite us attending 3 separate schools across town)! She suffered a life changing accident, however is still a strong and very beautiful woman. She’s my own little hero! <em>Julia Sandler</em>

  • My Inspirational Family

    My mum, the lawyer. My sister, the Oncologist. Me the 'creative' one. They've always inspired me to be a successful woman.

  • Marvellous Mel

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">Olana</a>:<br />This is Mel, one of my closest friends. Mel is quite literally a life saver. I met Mel when I used to run a small animal rescue organisation. We worked on a number of rescues together, until my health took me out of the game. Mel's one of the most loyal people I know. When I had no one to help me, she used to travel half way across the country just to take me to my solicitor. She was crucial also in quite literally saving my own life. There are a lot of things about Mel that I find inspirational. She had to give up work, due to suffering from crippling Fibromyalgia. She doesn't let this stop her though; when something important needs doing, Mel is there doing it. She participates in protests and still runs the home based, not for profit, small animal rescue, despite the fact that such things put her in bed to recover for days. She's so good at the rescue work that other rescue organisations frequently turn to her for help. And she offers her time volunteering for charities when she is able to, also. And, how many people do you know who care for their ex-partner? He suffers with severe mal epileptic fits, and has other health problems that mean he can never be left alone. He shares Mel's house with her. She ensures that someone is there to be with him whenever she cannot be. One further thing I admire Mel for is the maturity with which she handles relationships. She's poly. It's a very complicated lifestyle. If I were in her shoes I'd be incredibly jealous, and totally screwed up, but Mel knows exactly who she is and where she stands with everyone. I only wish that the openness, maturity, and discussion that happens in poly relationships, would happen in mono relationships too.

  • Amazing Mama Mary

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">mattgwyn</a>:<br />After raising 3 children, losing my dad whilst battling cancer and looking after all my friends as the best Mama Mary ever whilst growing up, this lady never stops smiling, never complains and never wants for anything except the wellbeing of everyone else around her. Even down to buying the nurses at the hospital chocolate every day to keep them going despite not being able to eat anything for almost a year herself. She is my inspiration and my hero.

  • My Mum, my inspiration

    My Mum is my inspiration – she raised 5 kids, got a degree and has dedicated her life to helping others through her charity work. She has never spent a day of her life doing anything for herself and tries in every way to help make the world a better place. <em>Danielle Fitzpatrick</em>

  • My fitness-fanatic mum

    My fitness-fanatic mum Michelle (who you'd never guess turns 50 this summer!) is my inspiration. She has raised three kids and cared for my grandmother while holding down a full time job, six days a week. She does all this as well as getting up at 6am every day to go for a run, come rain or shine, and has instilled in us a strong desire to be just as healthy as she is. <em>Sarah Dean</em>

  • My Sister & I

    My shining light & support system…she teaches me stacks & puts up with me being a douche bag frequently. <em>Chris Kelly</em>

  • Hillary Clinton

    <a href=" Sherriff"><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href=" Sherriff">HuffPost Blogger Lucy Sherriff</a>:<br />Because, when she was asked why she wasn't wearing any make-up, she replied: "You know, at some point, it's just not something that deserves a lot of time and attention." What a woman

  • Lynne

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">laureninlondon</a>:<br />My mum runs 10km a day, treks mountains, hikes through rainforests, surfs like a pro, cycles, swims, plays squash, tennis, kicks a mean footy... AND busts moves on the dance floor. She could be an ambassador for staying active and staying young! Here’s to her 8 children having half the energy she has when we are grandparents.

  • Me and Clarey G

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">pollyrayne</a>:<br />Clare is my inspiration because she's been through so much yet remains so unbelievable strong, selfless, kind, caring, generous and amazingly positive. If I end up being half the person Clare is I'd be very happy! A beautiful person inside and out...

  • My best friend Holly

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">honeyb11</a>:<br />Holly is very inspirational to me because she's had to overcome some really tough times in her life but she's always stayed strong and kept it together!

  • A true inspiration...oh, and she can sing a bit too!

    <a href=""><img style="float:left;padding-right:6px !important;" src="" /></a><a href="">flyingdutchmaniam</a>:<br />Sing to you? I paid a ticket to see you sing!
