To me, inspiration is being moved into action. It’s the process of being mentally stimulated to do, create or be. I see inspiration like a flame. It needs to be ignited, sometimes it flickers, sometimes big, sometimes small, eventually that flame will go out. That’s not to say it’s gone forever. In some instances the flame will go out just as quick as it was ignited, while other times the flame will last hours, even days. What ignites this flame? In other words, where do we find inspiration. The world around us is what inspires. People, things, music, nature, the list goes on.
What inspires us changes, just as we do. When inspiration hits, take advantage of it! I think we have to be open in our mind and heart to the world around us, because you never know what or who will inspire you.
All of our experiences have made us who we are. They have contributed to our attitude, personality, and perceptions. These same experiences have assisted us in creating barriers. These barriers exist around our heart and they exist around our mind. When we allow these barriers to act as a dam, it’s challenging to become inspired.
Let’s become inspired! It begins with you. Make the decision to be more open-minded and live with a softer heart. This may come easy to you, or it may be tough. Its okay.
