Inspire

“You’re going to Vegas again?” One of my coworkers asked me a couple of weeks ago. “Dont you get sick of going to the same place?”

No. I don’t.

I’ve been thinking about why we go there three or four times a year. We’ve talked about going to the Florida Keys or a cruise or to Hawaii, but we always end up in Vegas.

There are a couple of reasons why I keep going back. The reason that keeps popping into my head is this:

Vegas inspires me.

It’s always changing. There is always something new to see or do. I never am bored when I am there.

Inspire is my word for Week 7.

Vegas inspires me.

Sir Paul McCartney has performed in Vegas. Aerosmith. Brooks and Dunn. Reba. Britney Spears. Cher. Lady Gaga. And hundreds of others.

Gordon Ramsey has his own restaurant in Vegas. So does Giada. Wolfgang Puck. Guy Fieri. Guy Savoy. Emeril.

Harley Davidson has stores in Vegas. M&M has a store. Starbucks. Hershey’s. Coca Cola.

President Trump has Trump international Hotel in Vegas. Steve Wynn has Wynn and Encore.

Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill is in Vegas. The Wahlburgers have a restaurant.

All of these people started with a dream. A vision. They made it happen.

The Venetian Hotel has the gondolas. Paris Paris Hotel has the Italian restaurants along the cobblestone walkway and the puffy clouds painted in the blue ceilings that makes you think you are walking in Paris. The Bellagio hotel has the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Each hotel has their own theme. Their own mark. Each hotel started with someone’s vision.

Coach has it’s own store. Gucci. Louis Vuitton. Brighton. Pandora.

There are a ton of art galleries that showcase local and famous artists. It’s so cool to see how people put what is in their head on paper and other mediums.

When I think of the things above I am in awe of how many people are living their dreams. Singing songs they wrote. Creating food they love. Designing hotels that soothe peoples souls. Or maybe just mine.

Vegas inspires me to be creative. To live my dreams. To get what is in my head out.

Each time I go there I am reminded to keep moving forward. To keep being me. To keep searching, growing and developing myself.

Most people that have never been to Vegas think I go there to lose money.

They are so wrong.

I go there to get inspired.

As I walk through a art gallery i noticed a painting of a field of beautiful purple wildflowers that takes my breathe away.

As I walk down the strip I stop to watch a group of young men singing and throw $5 in their pail.

I see people living or going after thei dreams everytime I am there.

Of course I’m going to Vegas again.

And again.

And again.

And again.

There will not be a picture with this post and that will make me caught up with my Word for the Week.

Yeah! I did it.

Have a great week everyone.

I am off to the doctor to see what he can do for this sinus infection. Wish me luck!

  1. My kids just came back from an extended weekend there… someone’s wedding. It was magical. I have been a couple of times and I love it for just the reasons you say. It inspires me. The lights, the vibrations, the dreams. You don’t need to gamble to get lost in its magic. Good for you, my friend.
