What inspires you? Sometimes life can feel flat, dull and dry. How do we change it up, keep inspired, happy and moving forward in the direction of our wildest dreams? Maybe we lose sight of what our dreams are, what makes our heart sing or excites or moves us… We are spiritual beings having a human experience and this can happen from time to time to anyone, especially if you are like me and tend to review, reflect and reinvent myself over and over again!
We are creatures of change, of transformation and always evolving. And, whilst moving along, my journey, purpose, joy and following my bliss can at times seem foreign and distant. When I have found myself in those places or in a funk, which I have, one of the ways that I have navigated back to my joy out of sadness or fear is to look for what inspires me and sometimes this is jump-started by the simple act of taking a walk outdoors in nature…
What inspires me is all around me, all of the time. I find that it simply requires paying attention, being awake and being aware. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done! What I find works best is to keep it simple, be gentle, at ease and simply focus on what feels good. What inspires me is the natural world on Earth, the cosmos, love, natural beauty, color, family, good friends, the ocean, kindness, puppies and all that is good in our world. Truly there are infinite possibilities of inspiration ~ my motivation to stay inspired keeps me seeking and finding it.
Here are some of the people, places and things that inspire, give me life and provide light to be my best self and to do what I am here to do!
Let’s face it, it’s easy to slip into the habit of taking the simple things in life for granted and at times, forget what is truly of value, especially when those things of value cost nothing. We are so fortunate in so many ways, nature providing abundant nourishment, life force energy and the essential basics of fresh air to breathe, water to drink and the heartbeat of the mother herself keeping us all nurtured and cared for.
