What does it mean to be inspired? Where is inspiration found? Who can be an inspiration to you? Is it even important?
To inspire is to invigorate or stir a person to creative action, to arouse or create a feeling or idea, and/or to direct, guide and influence a person to a particular state of being.
Who Can Do It?
Anyone can be an inspiration.
Is It Important?
Yes, it is extremely important. So important that without it people lose hope and live unfulfilled, meaningless lives. As women, we need a good dose of inspiration daily. It is what breathes life into us. It is hope.
Where Can Inspiration Be Found?
Inspiration can be found all around us. But you must look for it. Open eyes must be preceded by open hearts.
Okay, so How Do I Get Inspired?
5 Action Steps to More Inspired Days:
1) Choose a new activity you’ve been wanting to try. Salsa dancing? Getting a master’s degree? Even something as simple as a new restaurant can be a source of inspiration
2) Sign up for a class with your local junior college or community education program.
3) Explore a new hobby.
4) Keep a journal. This will give you a place to keep your thoughts together as you brainstorm, set achievable goals and put your inspirations into motion.
5) If we are out of touch with ourselves, sometimes it can be a process to find out what inspires us. Use that journal to close out your day. Record the best things that happened during the day and what brought you joy. Soon you will notice a pattern. Follow that road where it may lead.
