It has been quite some time since I’ve personally written to you. A few years ago my path diverged in another direction and I apologize for not keeping you better informed.

For the last few years, I’ve been designing and building short-term vacation rental properties and that has been my full-time project. We’ve had repeating the timeless wisdom of our luminaries, but have not added additional wisdom.

At this time I need to make a decision whether to keep up and running or allow it to retire. I’m open to hearing from you, and especially interested in hearing from you if it is your passion to operate a site like this. I’m open to handing over the reins to someone else and would like to talk with you if you’re interested.

At this time, I’m providing much-needed vacations to hundreds of families at our inspired properties in Montana and in the US Virgin Islands. If you need a break, I invite you to check them out and see which one is the best fit for you. Whether it’s just you and your family, or a retreat, we’d be honored to host you!

Villa Calypso

Villa Calypso is a spectacularly beautiful villa located on the island of St. John in the USVI. It’s just a three-minute walk to a private beach with kayaks and snorkeling equipment available so you can swim with the sea turtles, manta rays, and colorful schools of fish. Or, just relax and take in the breathtaking view over the infinity pool. We’re just 15 minutes from the Virgin Islands National Park and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Each of these places inspires me, and I’d love to share it with you. Feel free to check out the websites or call me to plan your next getaway. 888-8MT-BEAR.

As for, if you’re interested in continuing the inspiration or know someone who might be, please reach out to me personally. It has been my honor and my privilege to provide inspiration since 2008, but the time has come to pass this honor to another.

Thank you for being a part of the community that has brought so much joy and fulfillment into my life for so many years. I appreciate you!

With gratitude and hugs,

  1. Hi Gail,
    I know of you from a mutual acquaintance, Leanne Lummis. A coincidence…perhaps. The world does work in mysterious ways.
    I have just read this post about Inspire Me Today…this is a YES on so many levels. I serve a global audience of women inspiring them to bring about change in their lives.
    I live in Poland, which at the moment has become the home for over two million women and children. It is nothing short of incredible as to how the Polish people have opened their hearts and their homes. I feel incredibly blessed.
    I facilitate workshops on women’s empowerment for the US Embassy and am able to engage with women from conflicting countries to break down barriers of judgment and bias.
    I call myself the Chief Inspirational Officer, after all, my name is Merry!
    My life visioning workshops run twice a year which serves this global audience and helps to build an alliance between women from all demographics.
    To say that I would be interested in taking over the reigns of Inspire Me Today would be an understatement. I would be honored.
    I am thrilled to have this opportunity and would welcome a deeper conversation on a shared vision for Inspire Me Today.
    Sending this out to the universe.

  2. Gail, I wish you well in your new venture and hope I can one of these days visit Montana. I do hope you find someone to help/take over your Inspire Me Today. If I were not 84 and busy with helping my friend, author Pierre Pradervand (85) with his site and our FB media and his books, I would volunteer! Meanwhile feel free to share any of our material on the site or on the Gentle Art of Blessing FB group that you feel might inspire your viewers!
