Do You Need Inspiration?

What brings inspiration into your life? Has it been awhile since you’ve felt inspired?

Inspiration comes to us in many ways. It comes through others, our environment, or through the lens in which we see the world. And sometimes we can only find inspiration through that lens if we have a certain attitude.

Apathy and complacency can become friends in our lives, if we let them. They sneak in and before we know it; are old friends.  A lot of it is because we refuse to change or be changed. Some of it is due to our circumstances.

I am of the firm mind that everyone needs inspiration in their lives. Without it, you can stagnate easily and life becomes habit instead of awe. It becomes routine instead of adventure.

Everyone has different personalities. Some people like a slower way of living and a quieter life. Some people love action and are constantly moving in one way or the other. Yet, still, both types of people need inspiration for it fuels and brings joy to an otherwise colorless life.

If you find yourself in a position without inspiration, maybe it’s time to look for some. Look and decide if your environment needs to be tweaked and changed a little bit. See if  your friendships need to be concentrated on more, or your heart needs some work.

Inspiration is like a soft breeze in a weary soul and sometimes it can be a full force wind that blows a hardened, bitter, or complacent life right out of the water!  Don’t be afraid of it – but embrace it. For it is there to bring goodness into your heart, soul, and life.
