The end of 2014 is almost here and it's time to look back at the year that was. But instead of looking back at the headlines and the year's biggest stories we wanted to turn it over to our readers and ask; what was your biggest inspiration in 2014?

Was it a friend who overcame hardship? A relative who faced an illness with courage? A young person who selflessly gave back to their community? Someone or something in the news who pushed you to be a little better?

We want your inspirational stories and photos. Tweet at us using the hashtag #2014Inspiration or send us an email to
